These three mark Rusty's 28th-30th ducks in his first general waterfowl season. That doesn't include the nine he retrieved during Teal Season back in September. He's 11 months old today and has certainly come along a lot further and faster than we ever expected of him. Guess we'll keep him after all.
Of course a hunt's not complete without creating that "special retrieve" for 'ole Cappy boy as we return and get near the house. He knows all the hiding spots by now so it's more for his enjoyment in retirement than any serious challenge for him.
Actually, not sure which of the two that we're more proud of. Cappy certainly earned his "Top Dawg" place over 11 hunting wonderful seasons together. Rusty's got his work cut out for him just to catch up to Remi, much less Cappy.
Awww Cappy you sweet ol'boy! Thats so special that you do that for him Jim, seeing you two together always brings a little tear to my eyes.
Good job, Rusty.
Good to see Cappy keep busy in retirement.
Way to go, Rusty! Good dawg, you'll end up with the best record of all, I bet.
Nice to see Cappy doing his retrieve, he still has a bit of a swagger.

Nice grey ducks!

Great pics and a great trainer, Jim. You have great dogs, and I doubt they truly understand what a great home they have with you, Carol, and Grandma.
