I had no idea about health certs, pedigrees or the dog games. I just wanted a dog to get a duck for me in the unlikely event that I hit one.

    After doing my homework on this site, I ended up with a well bred lab, sent him to a trainer for several months and now I plan to enter AKC hunt tests with him. We work as team every day. That was not the plan 2 years ago.

    Thanks to all of the RTF family for all of your help.

    The way the RTF networked to find a dog napper is priceless, this is a good place to be when you need it. Any news about how that worked out?

    [QUOTE=Ken Bora;1117145]Alright you pesky new kids. Wanna know why The RTF is COOL? Wanna Know Why We Are Family?
    Fast forward to tonight. Home from work, Dogs feed, bier in hand check front stoop. Huge box! The feller who was my contact at the retriever club works at
    Starline Inc.
    “Makers Of The Finest Handgun Brass”
    http://www.starlinebrass.com

    A very public THANK YOU
    to Starline Brass and to David Wolfe!!!

    I am a newbie! But here's what's really awesome. I am a lucky newbie that gets to train with David Wolfe. There is a great training group here and these guys put in a lot of work to train and to help teach train. I can't tell you how fortunate I am to get to be around this group. Kevin Polley, Dave, Greg, these guys are great. And it's cool to see a post like this where the help reaches out there like this. Pretty cool!

    to branch off, on my own thread, thank you Happy ( rutt row, last time I thanked Happy all heck broke loose ) but for real, lets branch off. I also would be for some sort of amnesty. Summer is round the corner. could 2013 be the summer of forgiveness? that would be very cool. I would vote for that.
