Yesterday I was watching a competition on the Outdoor channel.
It was about 2 hunters and 1 dog flushing 6 birds within 20 minutes. I was amazed to see how these labs were flushing the birds out. And they seemed eager to please! There was one bird that was shot and escaped about 200 yards. It took the dog around 2 minutes to retrieve it, but he did.
Not only do these dogs have good looks, but they seem to be awesome on the field.
I think i'll end up getting one later down the road.
Just to add: there was a water spaniel as well. Man this dog was running around(super fast) at long distances. He was flushing away, but had too much energy for my taste. LOL, I don't think I would be able to keep up with such a dog.
In comparison the Lab may suit me well.
