Great looking dog! My non-hunting lab is 14. :( I'm thinking about getting a pup about the time my little guys start going to school.
I almost always end up going out with my husband. Just kind of the way it works. We have fun, and honestly, I'm more into it, know more, and can call better than most of our friends that may go with us. lol. One of the reasons I've worked on calling so much is so I CAN go out by myself when I have the chance.
I did get out once during early goose season without him. Had the birds patterned, got permission on the X, and then they decided to go to a different field the following day. Grr. He's going upland hunting for a week this October and I'll be staying home with the munchkins, I think they'll spend a morning at Grandma's house while he gone and I'll go out for a solo hunt. Towards the end of the week, I think I may need the break. Love 'em to pieces and they're good little guys, but they are turning 3.
