    My first lab, a BLF by Trumarc Zip Code, Phyllis , who if I missed would look up at me roll her eyes, sigh, and then go lay down and groan at me. Her daughter and granddaughter did the same thing. Unfortunately they did that a lot.

    My first black female was a great meat dog. I remember a day I was having problems hitting the birds and after a few misses she turned and gave me this look; like why did you bring me? I just told to shut up and turn around. Absolute fantastic retriever made some very memorible retrieves. God rest her sole, Shadow 1989 - 2002.

    Blackie, my old guy, had big attitude issues doing the HRC. When we first started HRC. He used to run out to the duck, look at it, then take a tour of the property, come back and pick the duck up and come in. The judges wanted to know what he was doing! Funny but costly. It took a bit of teaching to rectify that and some other things. He used to roll in the grass on his way out to the bird. He figured nothing wrong with that! He most definitely has a mind of his own. The funny thing, no attitude out hunting? All dog!! Love him to death though.

    Another missed shot story. Most days, especially slow ones, if I miss a shot my dog gives me the cold shoulder. Won't even look at me. The whole time he's ignoring me he's making these grumbling noises. It's like he's telling me off under his breath.

    I could lie and say I never miss so my dog doesn't know what that is!
    Or tell the truth that I Do miss and Often and every time I do He gives me the PAW!
