Duck hunting with my buddy’s black lab he brought back about a 4 pound

It’s always a funny story at the Ducks Unlimited banquets...

We have a 8 yr old Golden. She is the best boating dog - loves the water. And she loves to cruise around in the dingy with my son.

Our two cats were frolicking the other night and our Bijon tried to join in. The cats didn’t like that one bit and excluded him. Poor little guy...he so wanted to play with them.

Love labs and lab mixes. My mix is the best swimming, Frisbee catching and antler shed finding dog I've ever had. Great buddy too.

Yikes is right. Jellyfish have quite a nasty sting! I can that with a great deal of certainty. Got stung when I was a teen and have never, ever forgotten it.
