First pic is funny.

I’d say it’s a better than decent morning - you got out, shot some birds, had your dog make retrieves. Works for me. She seems like she is getting the hang of things. Good stuff.

It was bone dry there before the rain. I didn’t hear a shot from other hunters all morning long.

Other than not obeying, that’s awesome (and I’m sure you found it in your heart to forgive her when she got that bird).

Even if she didn’t come back with it I would have forgiven her. I was happy to see her go out back after it, kind of hard to explain, but It was more like “if you are giving up, then come over here and stop flaring the birds”. If I gave her a “no bird” with a “here”, she knows she is done.

Great story, thanks for sharing! Moments like that really make the day.
