    Default He's learning the ropes... errr.. the birds...

    Toby is 12 weeks old and his intelligence, perseverance, and overall natural ability continue to amaze me.

    Yesterday I took a freshly shot mallard and made a 50yd trail through the yard around a corner and into the trees. This was his second time to work out a trail (first being at 9 weeks of age). Normally I would not make such a long trail for this age of pup - but since he has been here, I have seen some pretty good indications he could manage a longer trail with no issues....

    Watch and see how long it takes for him to sort things out, then bammo - off he goes. He is going to be one heck of a hunting dog. Can't wait til next year.
