any doubt that we may have had whether Rusty will really make a decent waterfowl dawg was resolved this morning when he made his first Honker retrieve, and a lively crip at that! I know of a number of seasoned Labs that will not pick up crip honkers!
Atta boy, Rusty ... Good Boy!
Good boy, Rusty!
That last picture looks like he is saying "thanks Dad."
Congratulations, Jim. Your hard work and expertise have paid off. Good boy, Rusty.
I thought he's saying: We did good today Dad, yes?
Way to go Rusty!
He's such a grand fellow. You know, he may have all water dog genes but without expert training? Just more genes.

That's a happy, retrieving dog!
Well done Rusty
rusty sure is cute
I forgot to mention that there was the obligatory "planted bird" for old Cappy boy as we came up the drive. He may be retired but he still LOVES fetching birds. You should see his swagger!
