    It's amazing how close to home your story hits me. I lived it almost to a t the exact same scenario as a 15 year old with my stepdad and his/our lab. It taught me that our dogs will literally kill themselves for us and it's our job to be aware. It has caused me to make sure I always have some sort of snacks or treats around should such a scenario arise again. Hope he has recovered 100%.
    It's not what happens to you it's how you handle it

    Oh my goodness. God Bless you both. I will keep him in my prayers. I do the web site for our hunt club. Do I have your permission to post your story? It may save a life. Take care. Hope he continues to do well

    It is that time of year again.

    Guys and gals, our dogs are not bullet-proof, propeller-proof or cold-proof.

    Please remember safety, including that of your dog.

    Had a very similar experience myself a couple years back with my Golden. He also pulled through but it was close.

    Thanks for sharing. As the new owner of my first pup, I will always remember 3 things I took away from this story.

    1- Always take into consider your dogs well being
    2- No duck, goose or hunt is worth risking a life over, weather its yours or your dogs or anyone else.
    3- Listen to what your dog is telling you

    Matt,

    Thank you for having the guts to post this. We all need a reminder from time to time what these dogs will do to please us...

    You have me crying like a baby right now, I lost my pup of 11 years on Oct 26 of this year. "lung cancer"... Ace's story drug up some of those feelings.... Again thank you for posting this, and best of luck hope all goes well......
