    New guy checkin in from Norcal



    Hey all, my name is Bill and I am located in Kelseyville, Ca which is up in Lake County (Clearlake, Ca). I am just getting started in both training my own pup and into waterfowl hunting. So be warned the questions will commence very shortly. I have a golden retriever currently that is a year old, but at 14 weeks old my father acccidentaly ran over him and fractured his pelvis. Well 2 months stuck in the crate with out being able to be trained or walked or anything has made him anything but obediant. He listens.....fine enough....but that is about it. SO for my graduation from nursing school my wife has bought me a Black Lab pup from Sage Creek Kennels in Red Bluff, CA. The pup is a 2 weeks old today, and in 10 weeks she will be home. So a little about myself, im 32 i have a gorgeous wife and a very handsome little boy named Luke who is going to be 11 months old in a few weeks. Like i stated earlier i am graduating from nursing school in May and looking froward to having much more time to myself and family, and of course being able to hunt again. And being able to train and hunt with my gorgeous lil Lexxi.

    Talk to you all soon and nice to meet you all.
    Bill

    Ummmm, what do you plan to do with you Golden? I am not passing judgement but this story makes me very sad. Perhaps I am reading more in to this than I should, I hope so. I will leave my comment at that...

    Ya your reading into it a bit too deep Tammy. I bought my golden "Kona" to go hunting with, and with the fractured pelvis hes not able to do all the swimming and running all day. So he stays at home with my wife and son, and gets to play with his 3 cousins (Hershey, Bebe, and Hana) at my parents 120 acre ranch 4 times a week. He is far from sad, he just isnt able to do what i wanted to do with him. So im getting my new lab to hunt with and also be a companion for him when hes not at my parents house. So ya not as bad as im thinking you were thinking.
    As for everyone else thank you all for the very warm welcomes.

    Good to know. BTW, I never said your dog was sad - I said the story made ME sad, big difference. Good luck with your new puppy.

    Welcome. I hope the new girl is going to work out well for you. Does the golden suffer from the broken pelvis? Congrats on your new career.

    Thanks for the hello. No Kona does not have to be on a pain management regimen and we dont need to take any special precautions to keep him pain free. He just can not jump up on objects or run for long periods or swim for long periods. So he gets to sit back with a life of leisure and love. Lexxi will get the same but will be working too.
