    DefaultBono's first swim...

    Today was, and still is, beautiful so it was a perfect day for Bono to be introduced to water...more than a kiddie pool

    The first water retrieve...





    The first swimming retrieve...







    and a posed pic...



    Darwin came along to show the little guy "the ropes". It was way too cute...everytime Darwin would shake off water, Bono would shake too...most of the time he didn't even have water on him! I think he idolizes his "big brother"

    The Dar...

    What a funky retriever you are, Bono! and Darwin looks great, too. Lovely pictures.

    Is that a canvas dummy you got there? interesting, because I notice most people in the USA use plastic ones whereas it is the opposite here.

    Eeeee! He's SO CUTE!!!! And how precious, copying big brother. ;D

    I see you are in East Lansing...did you make the drive out to one of the big lakes? Or did you take him somewhere around there?

    This is a canvas "play dummy". It's softer than traditional dummies being that it's stuffed with material scraps. I get them here...

    I do usually use plastic dummies for water work simply because you don't have to wait of them to dry. I prefer canvas dummies for land work because they can be easily scented making them a bit more realistic.

    These are taken at a local pond/lake. I'm not sure of the size cut off for defining them

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
