    Beautiful dog, I’m assuming since she’s a lab she’s a flusher. I had a yellow lab that was a flusher, awesome dog. He was a stud too he could body mouth a Canadian goose, he was 119lbs. Nothing better than watching a good dog work. I love to get another bird dog, but I might run a pointer next like a German wire hair. I would like it for grouse hunting so I don’t have to use @Expat for my retriever.
    Thanks for the pics!

    On this particular hunt she's just retrieving.....I'm new to this whole dog handling thing and Izzy is teaching me a lot....She's got a lot of potential and we are learning together.

    I retrieve birds for a fee, y'all. And I can cook.

    But, I'm slightly more expensive than a dog.

    On the other hand, I talk about the same amount.

    Then again, I'd be of no use if someone broke in.

    But, you don't have to pick up my poop.

    I guess, thinking about it, you're better off with the dog.

    My dog is of the "Family dollar" Variety.....some of the other dogs in the field are more of one of those really fancy stores.....like Belks or Macys.....

    Nice looking dog you have there! My uncle had a pheasant dog I went out with a few times. Really enjoyed it.

    I love to hunt but I *think* I enjoy working the dog as much if not MORE than burning powder. It's great way to spend some time outside!

    That’s a tough decision to make I feel your pain
