Couldnt've said that any better!!!! :thumbsup: That brought a smile to my face thinking of those first few hunts with her.

Great photos everyone! I really agree with the guys above that there's nothing better than seeing the light go on in your dog's head, and when they start doing things that you didn't teach them but that they figured out on their own. The more I train and work with my retriever the more I realize that you can't teach them to hunt and retrieve, you can only teach them to hunt and retrieve for you. They are truly special animals.

She amazes me all the time. She hit a wounded goose of mine one time so hard that she knocked feathers out of it, guess it should'nt have tried to run from her.

Maybe she figures if she hits the crips hard enough it will save you the trouble of having to wring their necks.

Love seeing the dogs everyone! Just watching a dog work in the field makes the hunts more than an outing just to shoot. Not too different than wactching my own childeren learn and grow.
A few shots of my 2 year old and he has been a joy to have.

My buddy's 9yo lab performed a 100yd retrieve in the Snake River for me last week. It was my first goose. This is probably her last year hunting. She's not in the greatest shape. She's had some injuries over the years. I love watching her more than the shot. My buddy told me she hung out in her chair the next day so I bought her a steak and brought it over. She's still a pup in her mind.

Good job on your first goose. :thumbsup: I'll bet you were a bit nervous that goose might get away till she got it in her mouth.
