    During a recent goose hunt Pounce was "caught in the act". :h

    Therefore, when arriving back at the house, we did some "yard work". Pounce
    was highly animated while practicing "retrieve & deliver". However, seeing where
    she is going is often an issue.

    Last time at the "vet's", she weighed 51 pounds. She's a "good fit" in the dog hide mounted on a "Migrator" marsh boat.

    The reason I asked is I have my first female dog. She's tough, but quite a bit smaller than the males I have had. If Pounce can handle those geese, Ruby should be able to at 60lbs. I envy your training access.

    I shot my first goose in North Dakota whey I was in my 60's. A friend invited me to go on
    what turned into a "hunting adventure". Before my two dogs and I went, we worked on
    improving their skill set so as to be better prepared Shooting that first goose in the
    Dakota's was almost magical. Taffey is gone now....but, that moment remains ever clear.

    Since then, the "next pup up" has always trained and ready before their first goose hunt.

    note: In spite of what many believe......size does not matter. :h

    You're correct. My red dog hovers right around the 50 mark and she does well with big honkers.
