    Hi, everyone.

    I've been lurking on RTF for a while now, but just registered today finally. This is a really great forum you all have here. I'm currently residing in NE Ohio and will soon be bringing home a black female Lab puppy, in about 3.5 weeks to be exact. I've had several Labs while growing up, but this will be my first "on my own" dog. She's actually a Pointing Lab... mother is a black female, "Killbuck Creek Molly", and the sire is Bruce Smiley's "Cruz." To say that I'm excited would be an understatement. While I would mainly use the dog for waterfowling, I liked the physical attributes and versatility of these two pointing dogs. I think Molly's pups will all be amazing. I know one thing, Cruz sure is an impressive dog.

    Anyway, just wanted to say hello and thank you all for having me. I look forward to reading through the pages here at RTF and learning a thing or two. And I really look forward to embarqing on my first real dog training journey!

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    I haven't seen Cruz in person, but my buddy who owns Molly has and he was more than impressed.

    Thanks, everyone. I'm really excited about all of this.

    Cruz is a hellava dog. He's also hunted on wild birds. I've had to run the upland portion of a test after that dog. Let me tell you it's hard running your dog after Cruz because he rocks it out.

    Welcome! I'm relatively new to the forum as well (albeit my wife is an avid RTF'r). So much good information/feedback here.
