to Cappy for all of the memories ...

This morning's sunrise gave us cause to hope that the final day of the waterfowl season would be a bright one.



It was the last day of our 10th duck season together. Alas, neither of us are as young and spry as we were back in the day. But such is the price we pay for the many wonderful years we've shared. This is a 1 year old Cappy intently watching daddy put his camo clothes on. He knew what that meant even then.



After today's hunt was over we cleaned out the blinds, picked up and loaded all the decoys and got ready to head home. But first we walked down to water's edge and reflected on the year together. We looked North, where the birds all come from, and said a quiet thanks for these past 10 years together and then dared to whisper a hope that maybe, just maybe ... there might just be one more ahead for us.

God has blessed you both. God has blessed you both.
Hold that gift close and dear to your vest.
And please give that good dog a kind and gentle touch from me, won't you.

Well done, boys. Well done!

I hope you and Cappy have many more years together. I love listening to your stories and looking at your beautiful pictures. You bring tears to my eyes. I really like the second picture. I think that should be framed and put where you can relive all of your happy memories for all the years to come. :happy:

That's a great idea. Maybe near the puter where I can see it whenever I'm on?

Jim,

Why does that picture not surprise me? You have shared 10+ year with Cappy and it is obvious from your posts the bond that has formed between the two of you. Hopefully there will be many more to come. I am confident that if Cappy wants to go with you, you will have him in the blind. What are the chances that he won't want to go. You take great care of your dogs and I am confident there are more years left for you to share.

Oh Jim, next year will be here before you know it and you and Cappy will be at it again. I love the 2nd photo, it's just beautiful. You can just feel the bond and the love between you two. {{HUGS}} for both of you.
