    Matt,

    Thank you very much for posting this,

    I was not a member when this went down so after reading this post I will be sure to keep my boy high and dry during the hunting season as all who know me know I am a rookie

    Thanks again and glad to see that ace is doing good.

    Matt, I just read your story and I want to thank you for posting it. I am so happy that Ace is OK and recovering. Ace is blessed to have you as his partner. You saved his life! I am just now getting back into duck hunting and will be taking my blf "Hannah" with me in a couple of weeks to eastern Oregon for a duck...goose hunt. I will defintely do the following thanks to your post:
    1. Take the neoprene vest
    2. Take phone #'s of local vet/ emergency clinic
    3. Make sure she has a dry place to sit or lay
    4. Keep a close eye on her for any signs of discomfort.

    Thanks again for your post and I'm praying for you both! I too believe in
    miracles and the power of prayer! Les

    We tend to think they're tough water dogs, and this is a good reminder. They sure will go to the ends of the earth for us, and it's important to remember not to ask too much. Thanks for bumping this.

    I wasn't a member when this came out and I just read it. All I can say is WOW! Good job and fast thinking saved his life! Lots of us can take a page from your book on how to stay "collected" when something serious happens. Glad Ace is back to his old self and I love his head tilt!
