He thinks we were there to duck hunt. I have noted over the years my dogs can remember where they are. I suspect/know it is memory triggered by smell. I live on the San Bernard River. My dogs can sleep all the way home from Kansas even, snoring and out like a light. Get near that river and you will see that head pop up over the third row seat. This isn't a one time deal, it is an every time thing. So old Bull rarely went fishing with us because he would just bail off the boat whenever he got hot. He was always there when duck hunting. I had my little black bitch down there with us so Bull was worried she was going to get picked to go instead of him. I saw him as he walked down the boat dock and he cast a quick gaze back. He was looking to see if I was watching. I hid from him to watch. Poor old dude could hardly step from the docks to the boat. Then he found a low spot, thinking he was a stow away until we went duck hunting. Dang I love that old dog.
