    Default proud? whats that you say? proud?

    From 49 days to now...

    All the work in the yard, in the field, the long drives to train on different grounds, back to the yard to fix hang ups...etc.


    It all became tangibly worth it yesterday when the first wild bird was shot over my dog.

    10.5 months.

    ROCK solid to shot, marked well, and picked up the first bird crumpled for him. Plus a few more.

    proud?

    At present, for me, there's no true explanation for proud...proud is when your goals for something you put alot of time, effort, and love into come crashing together at once and everything you expected and hoped for is surpassed leaving you with nothing but a great feeling.

    that's proud.

    from 49 days:


    in between

    Great Saga! Congratulations on beginning of many many more memories.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    Congratulations to you and your pup! It is very self-satisfying when you see the results of all your work training.
