Hunting and Fishing Days
DH and I went to a hunting and fishing expo today. Naturally we spent most of the time watching the dog demos. There was a german shorthair pointer club presenting some training tips and they actually used some dogs from the audience. After that some of the pointers were doing water retrieves. At least 3 bumpers never returned to land and eventually floated clear across the lake. About a half an hour later a retriever trainer had some of his students and others demo retrieves. All the dogs for this were labs. Quite a swim, but two labs shared in the round-up of those wayward bumpers. Plus one retrieved a dummy bird that was in the grass across the lake.
It is so much fun to see these dogs doing what they love to do.
Naturally I didn't take my camera.
