    9CBEE2E9-7A86-48E2-81A5-D5FAD6FE0897.jpeg He waits at the door when I pull up and comes out to carry in a bird. He doesn’t care when I leave him home anymore. Loves life in the house, but the second I get home if I don’t give him a bird he pouts. He walks it in, shows it to momma so she can tell him what a good boy he is, and then brings it to the garage. At four months shy of fifteen, he can do whatever makes him happy. Keep up the good work Mag!

    Caring for old dogs is a privilege.

    Question: What the heck kind of critter is that hiding under the table?

    There’s just something special about old dogs. Especially old retrievers. They deserve to be spoiled.

    Our new pup is a year and a half old. This is her first hunting season. Every day she follows me closer and step for step, looking for our next adventure. She loves mama too, but I am the fun guy. My wife realizes, however, that when the dog is retired in old age it will be following her around and become "her" dog. Just like the old boy in my avatar before he passed. He was mama's dog at the end.

    It didn't take long for me to be convinced that dog was born with a duck in his mouth. He should have on in it when he crosses over as well.
