    These are my dogs. The black is Swampy. The yellow is Rocky. Both have been professionally trained. Swampy is a beast capable of looong marks and blinds out to 500 yards. He handles like a dream and has perfect blind manners. He lost an eye last summer and it didn’t even slow him down. A really good gun dog.
    Rocky is a retard.

    Rocky is your “he gets my birds and that’s good enough for me” type dog. I won’t sell him because my wife and guys who hunt with me love him. He’s the JV team.

    I can relate to that. My first dog was 1st rate, did so many things right I didn't even show him. My dog now has lots of drive but controlling him is like lassoing a tornado. But he's about the most friendly dog you'd ever meet and he's my pet 90% of the year.

    I remember the trebidation you went thru when he lost his eye Ben, huge kudos to you for keeping him on track. A good dog is only as good as his owner, huge tip of the glass to you both.
    You're a proud dog owner and treat them as such.

    So how do you decide which one you hunt with on any particular day?

    That blind picture with the ducks and geese and silos in the background, is that a pic from the blind you recently posted about renting out?

    I have never had a dog that is a retard. Perhaps I’ve been lucky.

    Beautiful dogs.
