Now that Chance's first duck season is over, I thought I'd let you know how well he did in the field and how pleased we are to have him in our family. Chance had a great season - he hunted 22 days, retrieved 90 ducks and learned something new on every hunt. He saved his best or last, however. On the last day of the season, two of us hunted and killed two limits of mallards. Chance retrieved them all, two of which were double retrieves, and he handled them with perfection.
In addition to having a great first duck season as a young dog (16 months), from the minute he came home with us he has been a great family dog and companion. Chance comes to the office every day with me and behaves as if he's been doing it for years. At home you couldn't ask for a better dog to have around a young family. Most nights he endures my 2 and 4 year olds laying on him, pulling his ears and everything else they can dream up. Through all of this, he pretends as if they aren't even there.
I've had some good dogs, but none like Chance. I appreciate you working with me to find the right dog and getting him ready to come home and be a hunter and a terrific family pet.
