    Default Condolences to Reggie Ouellette

    My deepest sympathies go out to Reggie Ouellette and family. Reggie lost his 2 year old retriever last weekend. His dog drowned while doing a water retrieve. Reggie is part of the core group that runs the Granite State HRC in New Hampshire.
    Be strong Reggie...........

    That is terrible. How did that happen? Did he get tangled in something? Was there a current?

    A buddy of mine took his 11 year old lab on one last trip to Arkansas this year. On his first retrieve he picked up a nice pintail and on the way back stopped in the middle of the decoys, spit out the duck and started foaming at the mouth. He apparently couldn't move. My friend walked out to him and eventually he came around. Vet thinks his system couldn't handle the excitement/exertion any more and he had a seizure. Anyway if it had happened in swimming water instead of a flooded rice field (or if he had fallen down in the rice field) he could have drowned. That was Jake's last retrieve. Hopefully he will have a nice, long retirement.

    there's no good reason to fatten up a retriever.

    Reggie-

    Joe Miano (subroc) called me last night with the news. I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am. Not just because this is such a tragedy, but also because you are just one of the finest men I know. I don't think there's a person or their dog you don't support or offer to help & I owe you many of the memories I have with Kate.

    No one can take away the pain you are feeling, but if it helps at all-you are thought of by many right now.

    Godspeed.
