    Smile 11 Year old rescue with his first bird.

    A friend and I rescued a, then 10 year old, boy and his 10 year old bud from a family that didn't want them anymore. Mr. B is now residing with a good friend of mine. He had his first bird at 11, this weekend. Jeff T has already seen this, but it's so heartwarming, I had to share...

    Look at his eyes...

    He is an orthopedic nightmare...but he doesn't care!

    Very nice I had a ten year old go on his first and fast hunt this year one wood duck hen. You see joy from them that you never expected when they in counter a duck.

    he's a beautiful pup
