Thank you Shelby, Carolina Mom, Anney, Lynn C, Yaichi's mom, gdgli, Sweet Girl, mattg 1, Stacey, Kate and Jane!! Woohoo!
I'll video tape our star tomorrow and post (if I figure out how).

The JH is a possibility. Whew! Not bad for our first 14 days together.
Whoot whoot! That's great news. Most retrievers do love swimming. They just need to figure out how to do it, and then they're off! Have fun!

Don't you EVER doubt your pup can't get a JH. You just go forward thinking it will happen and don't stress about it, enjoy having fun training.

Hahahaha! I will happily take part of the blame!

Training for JH is very fun - you guys will love it. And I bet you won't want to stop there...
