    DefaultFull Circle ...

    Cappy retired from active hunting at age eleven in January of 2010. For the next two years his mind and heart were still very much into retrieving ducks so when we came home from a morning hunt, I would always place a dead duck in some cover somewhere along our 700' gravel driveway coming in from the highway. The highlight of Cappy's day would be to come out of the house, sit at my left heel and then be sent on a 100 yard or so "blind retrieve" to fetch up his daily duck. He loved it.

    Now that Cappy is gone and Remi is retired, she's come full circle to replacing Cappy on the daily post-hunt fetching duty. Today was the first day of the 2012-2013 season with Rusty now taking full responsibilities. Here's our girl doing what Cappy loved so much ... I hid three for her.

    Remi and Rusty aren't my whole life. They're trying to fill the hole in my heart left by Cappy's passing.

    I love your traditions. She looks so proud. Even though the retirees are not in on the hunt, they get to still be a part of the day. You are a good man, Jim.

    Good girl, Remi. She looks so happy. That's a wonderful tradition for the retired dogs.
