Guinness at 14 years old on his last night on planet earth in July of 2011... RIP. He had 11 amazing season as duck retriever. He would go through a brick wall to retrieve a wounded goose. He once dove completely underwater to snatch a very alive wounded duck. He was a good friend and confident on many any icy mornings alone in a duck blind.
Benelli in his 9th week of life in June 2013. His hunting career hasn't started yet. But he has great temperament and shows promise.
My Golden named Izzy. I was dying to name her Peaches but the wife pulled out the veto card. She is 3 now. She is a great family dog and while she may not be much of a retriever she is my year round scouting partner.
