We have a nine week old pup running around out place by the name of Storm and he is starting to live up to his name. 
 
 
Thought you guys would like to see his newest pictures.

He looks like "What did I do?" Oh well, this winter hopefully dog and decoy will be in the water doing their jobs none the worse for the wear and you'll look back at these pics with a big smile.

Make sure you don't have decoys around when your pup starts teething... you will have a pile of wood pulp instead of a perrty merganser ;) :D

That hen and the drake Merganser are for my walk in back pack for beaver pond hunting. Once the season progresses a bit I plan to swap out the two woodies for the hoodies. I have had them done for a while and had them in the house to get weights and leather loops. The kids were helping us clean up and asked where to put them. I told them they could put them on the floor since the puppy was not out. I knew better but oh well the kids even questioned my wisdom at the time.

I don't take it to serious. They were a simple paint job designed to be practical hunting stools and worse things will happen through out the years of use in the ponds. If it were one of the woodies I am working on for that rig or one of the blacks I completed a while back It would have hurt more. Those have lots more hours into the paint.   ;)


Ten years down the road when he is approaching the end of his career and those same decoys are still in the backpack I am sure it will bring a smile to my face and a sense of melancholy to my heart.

I had my pup do that to one of my wood ducks. (sorta). I had a finished wood duck head sitting on the table and he knocked it off with his tail. Being the good retriever he is....he brought it to me with teeth marks and all. Decided to leave them in there as "his" decoy

Good lookin' pup. Glad mine is through that phase.... One of the most trying times as an owner.
