Mark - I really enjoy all your posts and I admire a man that is his dog's "best Friend."
My dog Dutch actually hunts more than I. He typically gets 7-10 hunts in during early teal season and then he is off to Canada with my close friend who is an outfitter. In Canada, Dutch hunts twice a day for groups of 6-10 people for 6 weeks from mid Sept. to late Oct. He returns to Texas just in time for our opener, and we try to hunt 3-4 times a week throughout our season. Dutch has a HRCH & MH title and has a RJ in a qual. He is a truck dog... he rides in the front seat of my truck everywhere I go. He is "Rookie" amatuer trained and handled. And, most importantly he is my boys' and my best friend.
