My Little Fisher Dog!

I just adore this picture and how it captures Brew's interest in his Dads fish! Every weekend and some clear evenings during the week we head out to the river for some fishing, Brew has the time of his life, he runs the shore, goes in and out of the water, play's with sticks. He's turning out to be a great outdoorsy dog!



I have more pictures to add but I have to upload them first.

No, he didn't really take to it right away, he was very curious, my pom mix on the other hand, she loves to splash along the shore line, so she really helped him feel comfortable with the whole water thing. He's not big on swimming yet, he runs in and as soon as he realizes that he's having to swim he turns right around and comes back. I'm sure once he really gets the hang of it I won't be able to keep him out.

Oh man! Yes, we're going through the mouthing stage like CRAZY!! He's 16 weeks old now and he's hitting that naughty stage. Mouthing, jumping biting my bum. My kids are really working hard to break the mouthing habit with him, he's slowly getting it, but he does have his moments. Today I think he was at his worst when I went to get my son from school. He was so full of himself that when kids wanted to approach him he'd just want to jump all over them. It was very stressful.

I remember Marley when he was that age there isn't much you can do about it, I felt on disparity haha like nothing made a difference I think it's just his age, apparently all retrivers go through the same thing. I know it's very stressful at first because he did it with everybody and it seems like its nasty but its not. The thing we did was as soon as we felt his teeth on anyone that person went in another room and completely ignored him, no shouting or anything, then came back out and ignored him until he was calm. It seemed to work.

Those are some great shots...the last one with him leaning on the bank watching dad is priceless! And those are some sweet fish!!!

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.
