THE NEW LOVE OF MY LIFE

In a few of my past posts, I have mentioned that my husband and I have been without our four legged bird hunting companion for quite some time now.  The wait is over.  Over the past couple of months we have been reaching out to friends and acquaintences in hopes of finding our new hunting partner.  With patience and persistence, we were blessed enough to connect with the right people, and we now have our sweet little girl Kate.  

The adventure now begins.  Everyday there is something new.  Teaching.  Training.  Bonding.  Nothing quite compares with the growing relationship between a new pup and their introduction into their new family.  With my husband having already trained two prior labrador retreivers for bird hunting, this will be my first.  We are both very excited about our new family member.  These past few weeks, she has quickly developed, is changing everyday, and is learning so fast.  We both have a lot of work ahead of us, but hard work always pays off.
