Funny dog story

Postby Ron Vt » Mon Oct 15, 2007 4:37 am

Opening day was my labs first hunt. She's 13 months and I have trained her almost daily for the past year. Around 7:00 am I sent her for her first retrieve. She retreived a pintail decoy. I had worked her from the boat with dead birds and put out a dozen decoys and she has never retrieved a decoy until then. After alittle while, I sent her for another downed bird and she retrieved a pintail decoy. I could not believe it. So, I figured I give her a little help. I waded out with her at heel and sent her for a duck outside the decoys. She swam right out and, mouthed it, and brought it back to me. Guess what kind of duck it was? A pintail. Go figure. I like to think she wanted a pintail for her first retreive. She the retreived 6 more and 11 the next day. 18 total for her first 2 days.

I really want a lab. You're a very blessed man. Sounds like your hard work paid off.
