"Don't ever let anyone say you can't take field trial dogs hunting." says Pat F. of Eastern PA. Here's proof positive that dogs trained by the proverbial white coats can do very well. REO Speed Waggin' on his first official goose hunt.
Pictured here is Yellow Sandy and black Moira owned by Bill and Cathy Genier of Granville, NY. These are mother and daughter out of Bill's breedings hunting on a secret haunt on the Hudson River. Man Bill, that spot looks awful familiar. I miss it!
This "giant duck" was retrieved by Doc's yellow pointing lab, "Casey". Casey's boss is one of RTN's two resident chiropracters. (That we know of!) Perhaps even more lurk. If I recall correctly, this was determined to be some sort of cross between two species.
Now "Judge" is a dawg you don't wanna mess with! Judge and his boss do the whitecoat thing and reside in the great waterfowling state of Texas. Judge keeps his boss' duckblind areas clear of intruders, as shown here.

This shot was taken in Somerset County and included flocks from three different bodies of water in two both Maryland and PA. Kirk and Jake are both in their own custom/home-made coffin blinds!
