Our dogs and what we do with them...
Cary had a good point. Seems no matter what the topic is, we alway get off of it. The one thing we all have in common is the dogs.
As most of you know, I have been out of the competitive end of it for a few years... Although I have been judging to keep my hand in the game and give something back.
I am waiting for a breeding which should take place any time now... And I plan on getting back into the game.
I still have two labs at home, a 13 yo female and a 6 yo male.
Been a lab owner my whole life, mainly goose and duck hunted (never in the games), then I got one that was a monster on phez and for the last 14 years that's been my main focus. Two years ago I lost my great one and thought I'd try something different and got a springer , hopefully get a lab this spring or summer. I live in some pretty good hunting country that allows me to get out for about an hour or two daily, plus I go to SD for about two weeks a season.
you and Clint are in about the same situation, We are waiting on a certain litter that should be consumated in Jan/Feb...not sure where we are on the list but we are hoping on getting a female which would be campaigned and eventually be the new cornerstone to a whole new line for us

All my Exes live in Texas

I went to a field trial outside of Morris MN just to watch it 2 years ago, I believe the Minot club was using their grounds. Morris is pretty close to me, I can't think of any other clubs within 100 miles of me, maybe Elbow Lake has a HRC club?
4 Points RC is excellent.

I guess I didn't think of how far west you might have been.
What part of the state are you in?
Straight west of Minneapolis, about 30 miles from SD, pretty close the Lac Qui Parle Wildlife Refuge.
