Man you got me to thinking. My present dog is 4 and I'm in in my mid 50s. Say she hunts till 11,I'm now in my early 60s. As I have gotten older ,each dog has become more of a hunting partner Good lord willing I may only enjoy 1 more. Making me feel old .
Don't know your circumstances but I hope you get another,you'll both have fun !
Plus thanks for the pictures guys.

7th season. He isn't perfect because I trained him, but I wouldn't trade him for another.

Kind of a funny story about this hunt. The farmer just weaned the cattle the day before, and when we hit the gate, 200 cows came running thinking my chessie was their calf. They followed right to the blind bellowing.

Self trained retrievers are the best! Great looking dog, Ringbill. He looks pretty perfect to me!

I am going to pick up my first puppy in a couple of weeks. Seeing these pics makes me want to go get her today. Female black lab. Have been reading the training books and looking to have her ready to go next season. Great dogs guys.
