Default Pet Thread... yeah your dog is great...

Looked for a pet thread but... well I couldn't stand it. I don't have any grand kids.

This is my new "to me" dog, Duke. A friend of mine retired his guiding business and bird dogs a couple months ago. The town kennel regulations just got too much and his dogs were getting old so he was looking for a retirement home.

I took in Duke, he's 10 already and a proven hunter. All he thinks about is hunting. Tractoring and planting trees, he thinks it's hunting. He's been here about 6 weeks now and we are getting along pretty good but I'm out working and digging and when I got to back up and turn around I'm looking and looking for the dog. I know he was here just a minute ago and I don't want to run over him...

I guess this looked like a dog box to him. LOL. When ever there's no tools or dirt in it, he jumps up in the scoop and wants to ride back there. This dog cracks me up, over and over.

Yes! He's awesome. We are already best buddies. At least until I have to leave, or put him in the kennel.

I spent three weeks deliberately working at getting him to imprint and depend on me, now I'm the only one in the house he sometimes chases down the drive way. I don't like that, I'm afraid he'll get hurt in the road. But it's getting better.

I could already fill a 5 gallon bucket with those little green sticker things I've combed off him. He loves it though. He'll just stand right there and beg ya to get out the curry comb. Brush 'em right off his eye brows and he'll stand there still as a statue. Got out the scissors after I'd had him about a month and gave him a little hair cut and trim. He stood still like I'd been doing it all his life.

I'm so glad I didn't give in and get a pup, this is exactly the dog I wanted.

Maybe I"m biased but love the dog. I honestly think my gsp is more about hunting than my lab. If he even thinks I'm reaching for a gun hes at my side waiting for the shot. lol
