I bought a humble cottage near downtown and I'm still hanging out with these two and hoping the oldest one can get a few more months before she has to go. She's been a loyal friend and gotten me through some hard times, but I won't allow her to suffer to ease the pain of her leaving.
I'm still trying to train this one to be steady to wing and shot. Sometimes she will hold and sometimes she won't. She does usually give me time to get to her and get a shot off. She's not where she needs to be and she's a competitive bitch, but I blame the trainer. He has a lot to learn.
After having some fun on the river, I headed home to get some decent chow. I'm grateful for even the days that humble me.
