    Hey, with the price of corn being what it is I'd send him out for more.

    Good photos.

    Corn retrieving is good. Maybe Scooby Do thinks you should salt the blind area a little?

    Don't let them chew on those cobs. I know a Chessie that almost died from a blockage resulting from an ingested cob section about the size of a slice of banana.

    Are you sure he planned to eat the cob? Maybe he's upgrading his airing routine.

    And they say "Have you ever seen your dog eating in a corn field?" That does it I'm switching back to corn dog food.
    By the way I though Chessies were good markers. LOL
    Time for you to get a lab. LOL

    My buddies dog goes to the corn field and pulls up the whole stalk by the roots. The first row along his yard is missing.
    The foundation to a great retriever is obedience.

    me too! A buddy almost lost his Chessie to a cob! But the story reminds me of when Indy was starting cold blinds. We were in a corn field running from a mound when I sent him he took off like a bat outta hell, hit the base of the mound and picked up a bright orange ear. Looked just like the bumpers we were using. His face said it all, "damn, that was easy!"
