FEWF! I have not been able to access this website for some reason all weekend! All seems to be solved Mark and Shannon, thanks for your help!

On Friday night we picked Sammy up from an intro to birds and guns "camp".... below are some pics I took of her at the demo.

They started out with dead birds, then moved to live with their wings clipped, then he had her actually flush a bird- throughout the demo he was shooting over her head as she retrieved and she didnt FLINCH! He also said that she has a natural ability and drive and a very soft mouth and that though we are planning on using her for waterfowl, that she would also make a great upland bird dog.















She wasnt quite herself when she got home and it took a day or two of adjustment but now she is back to her normal self and we are SOOOO glad to have her home!!!

Thanks everyone, yes she had a BLAST!!! She is really showing so many very strong retriever tendencies, even besides the fact that she likes to bring things back, and its really nea tot watch. One thing that retrievers like to do is carry things in their mouths and they get very proud when they can "help" so we let her carry things and she is SOOOO cute! I will have to take pics next time. The other night she was prancing aroudn the house with a 12 can mtn dew box in her mouth. She was holding it on the very end where it was open so she had to stretch as tall as she could in order to walk with it. She literall did laps around the house and was SOOOOO proud of herself! HA!

Derek is now thinking we might have to try to get some birds to work with her with this summer so she doesnt forget before hunting season this fall!

The trainer also said we can bring her down to work in the field with her. He wont charge us anything but for birds and we can just work our dogs together (he also has a new 5 month old he is training) which is nice becaue we live within city limits so exposing her to gunfire is not really an option! :D
