Keys is doing well. Indeed, no sign of porcupines (good for the porcupines!) Key walks well on leash and is quiet in his crate in the basement thru the night. He loves his outdoor kennel in the daytime. We had to take him off Eukanuba awhile back...just did not agree with him. We think he is going to be a big dog...but he is super gentle. We ended up going with the Petsecure Insurance for now. Couple of pictures attached. By all means, please drop in if you have time on your way through to the US.

Attached are a few more photos of Gunny retrieving snowshoe hares..He has 46 game retrieves under his belt as of Dec 9th…He is the best gun dog I have ever owned! He quarters perfectly when hunting upland, he heels perfectly for sneak and shoot and he can sit in a blind for longer than I can! All this at 18 months! I had him in for his booster shots last week, My vet said he is the perfect specimen of a Lab; he is 74 lbs, well muscled out, with a perfect coat..
Thanks and Merry Christmas,

Hi Don .. Yeah I had been just thinking the same thing! Well I have to say that we are totally smitten, head over heals in love with our Daizy!! She is quite a character! Coming along nicely .. Thank goodness as she had taken a shine to my kitchen cupboards and the shingles on the house!!
She is just as smart and pretty as she is stubborn! We turn lots of heads and get lots of compliments (which hopefully you reap the results of). I will get a updated pic to send in the next few days.
How are all your gang doing? Any puppies? Paula & Donnie (Brie's humans) are in touch and we sometimes get together which is nice. All the best to you, Peirette, and family. Hope to talk over the holidays:) cheers,
Lois & Daizy
It has been a long time since I've given you any updates on Bigby and I've been meaning to for some time. Hard to believe he's almost 5 years old.
Bigby's the first dog I've ever owned, and he's been an absolute joy. I've never met a Lab I've didn't like, and I think I'll be a Lab owner for life. He's a great companion and It's become a regular event to go to Rockwood Park or the Nature Park on weekends to go for a stroll and take photos. He's great with children and always eager to please anyone he encounters.
Anyway, I thought I'd send a couple photos from the summer.

it's Benjamin up in Hopedale. Trooper has been an absolute pleasure. We enjoy her tremendously. I have just a quick question with regards to Trooper and swimming. She loves the water and is an amazing retriever - as determined as anything I've ever seen. However, as winter fast approaches and our temperatures dropping with every passing day I was wondering if there is a general rule of thumb with regards to when swimming is done for the season. Will the dog simply not dive in when it's too cold? Her determination says no .... But with air temperature in the minus ten celcius with wind chill in the minus twenty range my wife and I wonder if we should keep her away from water until its frozen. (This is salt water we are talking about too by the way) Any insight on the subject would be great.
