Hi everyone. This afternoon, I took my lab Gillian to the vet and she has a severe ear infection. She will be out for the next 2-3 weeks. I took a few days oof and I had planned on coming up for the NE and Western openers to hunt with her and my dad. I don't know if I have the heart to go out knowing that she is back at home. My dad took it well and said that we can go pheasant hunting instead. It's not quite the same, but, it will have to do. We have been training hard and in some new areas. I'm guessing we may have found some stagnant water or I just didn't keep up with her maintenance as much as I could have. Either way, learn from me and keep your dogs ears clean and healthy. Good luck the next couple of weeks.
