    But then you have the GOOD days like today for me. My hot little charger who has had issues with breaking and vocalizing sat PERFECTLY still for a water mark...so I shot the second Bumper Boy and she had a lovely water double without a twitch or a peep. That's what keeps us coming back : )

    Well, if you didn't leave training crying it wasn't that bad. Brush the dust off and hit it tomorrow.

    Happens once every month or so. Worst one ever was every set up the battery on a different winger would die. After I lost them all I got the puppy out to do some shorts marks. Tossed him a hup hup to get him warmed up. I threw it like a little kid and it went straight up into a tree and got stuck. I put the pup away, had to shimmy up the tree to get the bumper. When I got back down I loaded everything up and went home. It was like the Eddy Murphy movie "Life." "Just can't get right Boss"

    I especially enjoy those electronic glitches. Always seems to happen on that key mark or just when you finally get the young dog to look long past tight short gun. The good days make you forgot the bad ones

    Why is does this sound so familiar?
    Sometimes I just have ask the dogs why I like them so much.
    They respond by shaking their just recently acquired not supposed jump in skankest swamp water all over me.
    I truly love them for the dogs they are, they make me laugh out loud
