You’ll be happy to know Honor has not become a millennial dog. He has many jobs including waterfowl, upland bird and pheasant hunting, deer tracking and shed hunting, as well as snuggling with Barb and entertaining the cat. He’s become a proficient hunter, retriever and first rate companion.
Honor made his first real retrieve in the early teal season, September 2017, putting him at 4-5 months old. Since then he’s been a machine, racking up easily over 100 retrieves, found several antlers and successfully tracked 3 deer.
I think his favorite thing is retrieving wounded geese in a field, that was one thing my previous lab wouldn’t do.
Honor is always learning, adapting and improving, despite my poor/lack of training. He’s scary smart and observant. His athleticism is amazing, potentially a halftime frisbee dog at sporting events and a distance dock diver. He’s not afraid to go under water in search for whatever I throw or shoot. There is nothing he’s afraid of…I take that back he’s scared to death of the vacuum.
At just under 2 years old I can’t wait to see what “Little Buddy” can do over the next 10 years. Thank you so much for bringing him into our world spending extra time with him as a puppy. It all paid off.
