from what I have seen the gas almost always work but sometimes the vacuum line on the break booster comes loose and doesn't want to work and you have to pump the breaks pretty hard.

She did this very well being away from me a ways. #2 Staying in blind when geese crash down in front of her. #3 retrieve said goose
when her name was called. She brought the goose back but didn't lift it to my hand. Kinda dragged it and dropped it at my feet. I
figured close enough. Had one goose glide and land about 3 fields over and on our way driving home we checked the area we thought it was. Saw it sitting in the middle of a snow covered plowed field, head was up. So I sent the Pearl out to see if she could
recover it.She held a pretty good line to about 125 yards then started her hook to the right. Whistle stopped her corrected left then
back again. When she was about 40 yards from it, It stood up and started running and flapping. It caught air right as she got on it, she tryed a leaping sky recovery but missed it. Once it made it over the next fence line I had to whistle her in. it kept flying low but we lost the goose. We gave it our best shot and hate losing one but it happens sometimes. Over all very pleased with her performance today.
Out past 100 yards or so she has a hard time seeing my casts when i'm in camo. She just sits there waiting like OK dad which way?
I really have to exaggerate my cast motions. I'm not wearing a white hat to use. Any suggestions?
And I have to find a way to get this hooking on a line straightened out.
