Back in March we decided we wanted to get a water dog. I asked for and got a lot of great advice from hunt talkers on what to look for and some different breeders. On June 12 we got Nova at 8 weeks old. My son spent all summer working with her. Yesterday she got her first retrieve. She also found a wounded duck that had buried itself in some deep grass.

Super!! I hope those two have a lot of good years and retrieves ahead of them. That last pic is a classic!

Great pics and I am glad the pup is working out. Looks like a great friendship for years to come. That second picture could have been me 40 years ago except they didn't have those great neoprene waders. I had the old rubber ones that froze your toes off. I got a pup about the same time and he is doing great also, just need the ground to freeze so he retires from his excavating business in the back yard. :)

Thanks for posting these pictures. Pups turning into dogs always make a good story.

Thanks for the comments guys. She has a lot to learn but seems to be getting it. Her and my son have quite the bond.

Congratulations!

Congratulations on the bird dog! The work training this summer paid off. I believe having a good bird dog amplifies the enjoyment of the hunt 10 fold. I wish you many years of dog and hunt enjoyment!
