    Dog still has a screwed up mind...

    was avid duck hunter until a series of strokes elminated my ability to use waders/hip boots - now, after 33 yrs of teaching, i am in my 15th year of guiding pheasant hunters at a preserve in WI plus a yearly trip to SD- using two field champions, 2 QAA labradors plus other highly bred trial labradors as guide dogs - retired life behind highly skilled dogs does not get any better
