    [​IMG]

    And others could care less

    The ducks are just now quacking and it gets the attention of everyone!

    Sometimes that attention can be bad.....

    "Day-Z May" could care not what they do...she is in a "mood" due to the rain

    It takes a "special" kind of person to think....Hmmm, I've got a beautiful lab, what should I get next? Hmmmm, I think I'll get some DUCKS!

    Just kidding. The pics are great and the intense look on the lab's face is priceless. Thanks for sharing. [​IMG]

    Quote:My two GSDs would rather sit on the banks of some pond somewhere and wait for your labs to bring them lunch. GSDs are smart that way. (Just kiddin' [​IMG] )

    My labs hunt, they just do what Ive trained them to do. They dont miss either...

    We keep them seperated and the birds dont free range until we have the dogs put up, but we do let the dogs out often especially right before dark to scent the coop area up.

    Ive had my boys bring me ducks that were far from dead, they have pretty soft mouths but I know the chickens would get hurt even if they just "brought" them to daddy haha. A little planning and some training should keep the peace.

    Gauge is a special case...he is 110% FULL SPEED ahead!
