Great dogs, not so good to see at night, so think twice if you do any duck shooting. Hence the very fetching harness. Might get one for Mrs buckup, might make her easier to find under the duvet, just switch on the headlamp and........(oh dammit I wasn't supposed to mention the headlamp).
Do I hear right you want one of those ungodly black labs that are born well behaved and pre trained. Where is your sense of adventure
Guy Wallance once said if you want a good shooting dog get a black lab but if he could have only one dog he would get a German wire haired pointer as it would give him something to do.
Buckup - Nice harness, Lolas is a bit mangy at the moment as the blood all over it has reduced its reflective power. we had three follow-up fot hunter friends to do in one day. Great challenge. Two deer were cleanly missed and the third survived with a duelling scar.
