Happy #ToT friends! We have another double feature today, a couple of good boys: Drake & Achilles 💗 Achilles is the little one and father to Drake. "Well it's been a sad, yet memory filled day. The time has come for the boys and their final retrieves of their awesome bird dog careers. They are officially retired duck dogs, and after this week will be fully retired from hunting anything. They are 12 and 11 years old. And have given me more memories and stories than I can count.
Numerous birds retrieved for first time hunters getting their first birds and starting an addiction. First bird species for hunters that have been hunting their whole lives. Diving to catch wounded ducks. Always making people laugh in the duck blind. Always being there when no one else wanted to hunt.
The drive is still there but their bodies can no longer take the misery that we love to call duck hunting. I'm gonna miss my boys in the duck blind with me and all I can say is thank you for the great memories and the years of always being there with me. Hope I can let you live out your final days in retirement with lots of snacks and fun." 💕🐶🥓🐶💕
