Remington Rae call name Remi is gone. 10 yrs and countless hunts wasn’t enough. frown She hunted by my side and was a true friend. To my wife and kids she was 100% family. On my list of great dogs in 35 yrs she was the best by far. Cappy and Wal both help me with advice on training. Cappy sent me a couple collars for free and Wal sent me lots of pm’s about his old dog Bull and his training strategy.

She was retired the last few years and was just a pet, slept in the kids room, played fetch occasionally, two stepped to country music with the wife laugh , and kept me company by the fire pit. Dogs are dogs and not people but man this one cuts deep for me and worse for my kids.

I have to have a lab. Coming home to an empty kennel and not having a buddy to hunt with and talk to won’t work for me. Saying I’ll never get another one because losing this one hurt too bad never crossed my mind. Looked through the pups for sale threads and didn’t see any real recent stuff so if anyone knows of a litter, or even an older dog that has some flaws is fine, let me know. I’m not trying to win field trails or spend 3k on a finished dog, just need a retriever and pet. I got old Remi at 18 months old from a young couple that couldn’t handle her and trained her up “good enough”.

So sorry to hear. I've been there. Piper, my choc lab, was an awesome dog. I hunted with her from 2002 to 2009, she hurt her knee and laid on the sofa in retirement till 2017. We lost our beagle the same year and though we'd wait awhile to get another dog. We could not do it. One year later, last November, we got another lab and it was the best thing we could have done for ourselves. Once they become part of your life it is hard to live without them. This is Torrey my new pup.

Man that is tough. Some say they are just a dog but they are much more than that. But my little buddy made it 16 years and I cried like baby. I feel your pain, hang in there.

I really hate see post like this, I have one coming to his end sooner than later. RIP Remi


There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

“But there is one best place to bury a dog. If you bury him in this spot, he will come to you when you call; come to you over the grim, dim frontiers of death, and down the well-remembered path to your side again. And though you call a dozen living dogs to heel, they shall not growl at him nor resent his coming, for he belongs there. People may scoff at you, who see no lightest blade of grass bent by his foot-fall, who hear no whimper — people who may never really have had a dog. Smile at them, for you shall know something that is hidden from them. The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of his master.”– Ben Hur Lampman

8pointdrop, I am so sorry to hear about Remi. My condolences to you and yours.

Sorry to hear man. I still miss my chocolate that I lost 2 years ago. The only problem with a dam good dog is they never live long enough.
