    Super cute! I've had 3 chocolates and seeing Reese makes me want my 4th. Great dogs whether it be companion, working or both.
    Some wonderful memories lie ahead for you two.

    I have 3 dogs - all just pets, but the smartest one is a lab/healer mix. I can't imagine life without a dog in it. She sure is cute.....

    Yeah she is actually a Silver Lab but she comes from a bloodline of Black,Yellow,and Chocolate so I guess her coat is more of a light brown than an actual Silver.Some people are down right nasty when it comes to silver labs,but she will be fine for what I want her for.I won't tell them what to do with their money or dog,so just wish they would mind their business lol.But oh well.Thanks for the compliment on her,she is gorgeous little girl

    Reese is a beautiful pup. It is rude behavior for people to talk about your pup when they have never dealt with her. Ignore fools or you can ask them if they know the hardest thing about business? Minding your own is the punch line for those jerks.

    DoctorBrady's blog will be a great resource for you. I want to encourage you to use it and get to know him. Personally I have two labs but I am training mind to hunt shed antlers - they are 9 months and 3 months.

    Brushpile has a tracking crew also. He has two young dogs that will be tracking for the first time this fall.

    Welcome to this forum. I am in northern middle TN - between Nashville, TN and Bowling Green, KY.

    If I can help you in any way, let me know. That would apply to 80% of the guys on this forum - they will be glad to help you.

    Start with short liver drags with a food reward at the end. You want the dog to have fun and find the reward. Eventually switch to blood and then hooves. It's a logical progression making tracks more difficult by aging them and lengthening them. Then this deer season start your pup on a known dead deer.

    Antercrazed -

    Did you get Reese on any blood trails this hunting season? Us dog folks like updates especially when we get snowed in for a week.

    Hope your dog is doing well.

    She is a gorgeous girl. Seeing her sitting in your truck put a smile on my face and reminded me of just how fast puppies grow up.
