    Default Hi from new guy

    Just wanted to say a quick hi. Hi.

    I've got a 2yr old BLM. He's my first hunting dog and I got him as a started dog when he was a 1 year old. He's a pet first, hunter second which is almost 100% upland. My avatar is a pic of him sleeping weird. I plan on doing hunt tests, but don't plan on getting hard core about it. I just plan on having fun with my dog and learning more.

    I don't wear black because it makes me look slim, I wear black because it hides the dog hair.

    Now where have I heard this before, welcome to the board hunting what hunting you will get so interested in the hunt test game that you will begin to think about training while at your fav honey hole, I'm just sayin can't think of a single duck this year that we did not take a bumper or two and make some trianing out of it before we were done.

    Here for the hunting only test are for fun "not anymore" !!!

    Who you calling weird Joe, huh? huh? huh? Thats the exact same way my dog sleeps except mine is in the middle of my bed. He is not weird, (spoiled a little, maybe). Nobody here has weird dogs. Theyare all awesome.

    Just pickin' on you, welcome!

    Your dog might feel differently about getting hard core about it! And when you see what a good time your dog is having, you might start feeling a lot more passionately too! Welcome and enjoy!!
