:lol: :lol: Yup, it was one of those days! I will probably be lucky if I dont get menegitis,hepetitis,bullfrogliceitis, tetnus, rabies, blasto and lepto. Loved the feel of the sucky silt mud between my toes!
About died when she tried to sit in the water and present the duck. Love this dog. She has pushed me to think out of the box and train differently than I did with any other of my dogs. She taught me that kicking dog ass when they screw up isnt always the answer.....although I always knew that in theory. :lol:

And yes, after walking all the way to the back of the marsh and back, I thought I was going to die!

More ducks need to be put out....the more ducks she finds and chases the less important the frogs become. Don't hobble the ducks too much, the more they move the more excitement is created.

I may need to clean my glasses, but I don't see hobbles on this duck.

We actually were not duck searching. Just out for a run along a pond after some field work. What was funny is she came running up to me and sat to present it. :lol:

Love the pics. Glad you were able to remain upright. It's awful when you tip over in loon poo.

I ran my 18 month pup in a UT test a month ago. We trained hard through the summer for it. The drought dried up the marsh where they were going to run the Duck search so a last minute decision moved it to a large flooded standing and downed timber lake. There was a great deal of horizontal floating and submerged down timber requiring a dog to struggle over it in swimming depth water many times in order to keep advancing and searching. Far more difficult water than I have seen in a test anywhere else.

So we drove 3 hours one way with ducks and my 8ft boat to work on duck search. Unloaded the boat, paddle, life jacket, ducks, gun, shells, bird bags ... And started dragging the loaded boat through head high weeds/grass a quarter of a mile to the waters edge. As I was stepping into the boat to begin setting out the ducks I noticed the plug (which I then realized I had failed to screw in before beginning the drag) had apparently pulled out and was hopelessly lost.

No way I was going to drive 3 hours back home without doing the training I had set out to do. So I put on the life jacket and began wading, crawling, swimming ...

What we do to train our dogs. Good luck in your upcoming tests.
