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!
