    Thank you for the birthday wishes.. but I'm not going til the 13th.. that's actually the day of my bday. I hope to win but I'm going to limit my spending and hit the bar, there's a live band so I'm gonna go do some dancing :)

    As for Cabo, he's doing amazingly well! The trainer said he's learning by leaps and bounds and so smart, just need to focus him. He's probably leaving this Tuesday to go back to Idaho w/ his trainer :( Was supposed to be around longer and I was looking foward to spending my next few weekends throwing birds for him but it's ok. My arm is sore from the past two Saturdays!!!! LOL

    Thanks again :)

    Here's Cabo just chilling... those ponds are awesome where we trained (called Billy's place, or used to be CL2 - Rex Carr's place or brothers place, not sure). There are 10 ponds all of em are set up for different exercises. I've never seen anything so cool!

    Cowgirl,
    Do Kimmie's puppy's need outside training? My wife wants to get a "small" dog for our grandson. I'm not impressed with "small dogs". I would like to get a lab that would work for ducks and upland game in ND. Any ideas? (Kimmie - Please chime in also!)

    Doug,
    Val is wining, dining and dancing the night away! Good for her! BTW, do you ever get up to ND to hunt?

    Um, well, I don't think Kimmie's puppy's need any outside training anymore than the next dog. I guess I'm not quite sure what your asking. As of outside training for my dog, well, I dont have the skills to train him to do what I want him to do, he's my first for training to run hunt tests.

    As for his size, he's 58-60lbs, so not big. I couldn't be more pleased w/ his size tho, he's perfect! I have an 85lb lab and he takes up too much room on the bed..LOL

    I had a great birthday, first watched some of the hunt test, then back to my gf's who made a great dinner for me and then cake of course.. then packed up our bottle of patron and beer and headed for the bus. What a great safe way to spend the evening.

    I guess what I'm asking is can I get a good dog that my wife and grandson would like in addition to being a good retriever that would require minimal training.
