    Very nice Dave! I'm just used to seeing chessies in the big water pics. I have an "ocean going" lab myself. At least I did when I had an ocean.

    I love this pic, the dog's eyes, the jewelry, and the way his face is so in focus and the background less so and the foreground not as fuzzy as the background. Way good IMO.

    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

    Troy, thanks for posting the "band" photo. It made me remember a goose band Daisy brought back one cold morning years ago. I had the camera out snapping pictures when she came up out of the water running toward me. When I reached for the retrieve, I spotted the band. That was a rush!

    I was even more thrilled when I downloaded the photos.......the "keeper" was there.

    Sometimes you set out ''Training'' ,then it becomes a 'hunt'?...then turns out to be a training day after all?

    im not a trial guy myself, im getting a puppy and my main goal is hunting and my next best bud. but if i have a dog talented enough to run hunt tests which i would like to do or trials then y not try? These dogs love every second of what they do y only limit them to hunting a quarter of the year. the great thing about trials and this forum is it brings the best and highest potential out of the amazing creatures. trial runners spend all day and everyday with their dogs and have so much knowledge that us hunters can really learn n grow as hunters and handlers. u cant say it would not be cool to say ur favorite hunting buddy was a national field trial champ! very nice looking dog by the way i cant wait to start my adventure myself
