Filing through the database and cleaning out some files to make room for more, I came across this pic of Yukon.  This was a hike we did in June after that weird late season rain.  The wind was blowing on top of the ridge, but the light was good.  He sat still just long enough for me to grab a few nice frames.   He’s grown so much since then – mentally and physically – and he now weighs in at a little over 60 pounds ( he’s not done yet!).  He retrieves like nobody’s business, and duck season is only a few short weeks away.  I can’t wait for his first hunt, and many more to come.  Of course there will be more photos following his progress, but in the meantime…

Have a great day everyone.

See you down the road.

How can you say no to a face like this?
