Well it has been forever since I have posted to this site... the names have changed a lot...LOL
I have been lurking though and reading. I just never really have anything to add to posts... but I thought I would share my excitement and the new pup with y'all here. My son is 14 now, with all the traveling with baseball, I have put off retriever training like I use too... I do have a dog, so after this years duck season - I decided to run him in HRC event "Season" since now there is a local club holding test close to home. So right after hunting season this year - I made the effort to get him ready for that... and during that month, my son Tyler helped out a lot.. One day coming back from the field, he stated that he would like a pup, so he wouldn't have to be the bird boy all the time...LOL - So we made a deal about him reading a few training books, etc...etc... he meet me straight up and even built a kennel.. well this past weekend was his birthday and to his surprise I lived up to my end of the bargain - (he didn't have a clue that I had a deposit down on this pup for over a month..hehehe) - I rank giving him his first pup - right there with "the first time a father plays catch with his son" - - - Anyways I hope y'all enjoy and don't mind me sharing.
He fell in love with her at first sight! but how could you not....
His Kennel Project
I gave him the pup Friday(18th) took him two days of struggling to come up with her name... I think he did well..
If my son gets from his pup what i did from this yellow dog - His heart will be full! I still miss my ol' Hank.
I got to toss in a pic of my boy Lincoln - I guess I owe it to him, for putting the idea into his head about wanting his own dog...
