    DefaultRemi's Hunt this morning .... No Cappy again :>(

    It was foggy with very light SW winds at 7 am this morning when we started. Within the first few moments a lone drake mallard responded to our calling and I splashed it 50 yards away. Remi made an excellent retrieve having not seen the bird fall but by following my whistles and hand signals to it.

    While she was out retrieving that bird, another pair gave us a look and I picked out the drake and dropped him a short distance away. Remi made another good retrieve. That bird was a runner when it hit the ground. She's becoming very proficient with her nose in tracking downed birds that she didn't see fall.

    Back at home with Cappy taking a look at what Remi did this morning. If you look carefully on his upper lerft front leg near the "armpit", the worst of the ice breaking injuries from Saturday is still showing. Our Vet does NOT want to stitch the area and says Cappy's licking is actually beneficial to promote the skin regeneration there. Sure making me nervous. ???



    Carol shot a couple of the ducks this morning and she's just now getting used to her new Over/Under shotgun. With a few more hunts like today's she'll be getting really good with it.
    Remi and Rusty aren't my whole life. They're trying to fill the hole in my heart left by Cappy's passing.

    Great pics. Looks like Cappy's swelling is down. I hope he'll be better than new in no time.

    Another great hunting day for Remi.
    I agree, the swelling has surely subsided, or looks that way in the pics.

    Healing thoughts for Cappy.

    Sounds like Remi's nose is serving her (and you) well. Amazing how dogs know how to heal themselves. Glad the Capster is doing better.

    That's extremely cool that you all hunt together.
    Cappy wound looks MUCH better, Jim!

    I so enjoy hearing your hunting stories, and seeing the pictures! Your dogs sure do lead a great life! Please keep 'em coming.

    We hunted dove and quail back home when I was young - I moved away for college and never went back. I really miss hunting and fishing, and wish my husband wasn't such a city boy and would get off the couch on the weekends and make me a Hunter's Widow. Better yet, take me along!
