I know you didn't ask, but that vest is so big, it isn't doing your dawg any good.
A neoprene vest needs to fit so tight, that water can't flow between it and the dog's skin while the dog is swimming. It needs to trap water, just like the insulation in your coat traps air. If you don't believe me, try taking a dip in a wetsuit that is two sizes too big for you.

Not exactly "Working pictures" but here are a couple of Boomer from yesterday and today.
This one he's watching a flock of about 75 mallards roosted on the Chippewa River backwaters yesterday and wondering why he couldn't go get one of them.
Here's the look I got this morning when I told him it was too cold to go out for a walk. The wind chill was nearing -30.

Thanks GH...lol...I think Knothead was a little worked up trying to taste that Rooster. About a 1/2 hour before he put up a hen and as I watched it fly away, didn't notice he was working a second bird - 30 feet away. Needless to say - that one was a Rooster and when it flushed I stood there with my putz and gun in my hands and watched them both fly off.
Darn close guess.
twenty five inches. Biggest I've got I think. We worked a swale and nothing was in it. About 50 yards further was an old irrigation ditch. We came up the ditch and the dog pointed two hens. She went about 20' further and pointed again. It was that rooster. Surprised the heck out of me that he didn't flush with the two hens.
