    This should dispel that myth!




    I take my hat off to you Rusty boy! Speaking of which, would you go pick it up and bring it here please?





    BTW ... See the four snow geese to the right behind Rusty? They came in a little over a week ago and they're still here. Unusual birds to even stop here much less stay this long. They don't eat the corn we feed here so it must be the lush fresh grasses just coming up that they enjoy.

    He's obviously a rare "Pointing Hat Retriever".

    Cute pics of the Pointing Doodle. I can't wait until we have lush, green grass. Currently, we have a brown grass mud bowl.

    Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

    Jim I was wondering what your Rusty was - he didn't look like a Golden with all that wirey hair on his face? Is he really a Labradoodle? I have to ask why not get another yellow Labrador like your beautiful Cappy and Remi? Was he a rescue?

    Forgive me if I ask you to do a search on my last month or so of posts and pics of Rusty. In a nutshell ... he was my wife Carol's choice for a house dog. With Cappy's age and recent health issues, it's time to bring another "youngster" into the family. Carol had been a Poodle owner and fan for over 30 years when we got married in 1989. Since then she's only had pointers, Setters and our 2 Labs in her life. Carol wanted a house dog but was struggling with not getting another Lab because she hunts waterfowl with me and loves to see them do their life's destiny work in the fall.

    Then we went to the home of the guy I bought my Jeep from in June of '08 and he had a young yellow Doodle. It was love at first sight, Carol played with him for an hour, was completely hooked and has been bugging me ever since. The only condition that Carol asked me to agree to was for me to be willing take the time and effort to see if Rusty had the genetic instincts that would be wortwhile trying to bring out. So far he's proven to be smart, a quick learner, he loves to retrieve and is very affectionate. However, he's a very "soft" dawg and will not handle my conventional firm discipline in training. We have more than six months to the fall season and I'll go slowly and be patient with him. If he becomes a hunter and takes his place with Cappy and Remi, great. If not ... he's already a loved member of the family and I'm happy we got him.
