Yep, that's a purebred Labrador. And the popping snuffling thing (which can be really loud!) is an inherited trait that goes back to Field Champion Paha Sapa Chief II (born in 1955), in this case probably down through a Super Powder or FC Trieven Thunderhead line by the look of him. So a well-bred dog. By his body posture he's had some training; he knows what to expect from life, but also expects the human to run the show.

Testing, yep, they do that... they think just like little kids. If mom won't let me have candy before dinner, maybe grandma will!!

My line are mostly a slightly different type, but if you put this guy next to Bouncy, they could pass for brothers.

Here's a series of photos that serves as an overview of the various field types:

Bah, here's the one I was looking for, this is Trieven Thunderhead:

There was a pair of them and they have been well cared for. They show up right at the start of hunting season and they did not have collars on.
Rez I believe you are right, someone may be missing hunting dogs.

I'll hang on to him for the time being and I think I know where his brother or buddy ended up, so if the owner shows up wanting his dogs back I will see that they both get to go back to the home that they belong in.
If the owner never shows back up I think we may keep the old guy. He seems a bit depressed. I would be too if I were him.

Rickers, give Peek a little extra nudge
Maybe he is used to having a job. Got any mice you need to get rid of?
He is a beauty.

Wow look at the broad expanse of the chest. Beautiful!
Nothing more fantastic than seeing these guys do their job.

A little sad note, my dashi mix had to be put down. You know they are prone to the back issue. He got lame a few weeks ago and I kenneled him as much as possible to help him heal up but I wound up having to express him because he could not poop or pee.
He had a heck of a life here in Montana for five years. He ate his weight many times over in grasshoppers.

No Rickers, I do not need a new dog

Hubs is already looking at Britneys Me? I have been in the dog business since my kids were very little and I might just see about doing without for a while.
Now that little donkey the neighbor wants to get rid of....

Default Our guest is on the list for a stay at TRACS.

We found out a bit of info on our house guest. The word on the street is that some lady in a nearby town tried to take the two dogs to TRACS and didn't make arrangements first so she just let them go as the facility is not always accepting animals due to limited capacity. (By the way if anyone wants to help them they always need help of all kinds. They are the only place to take in strays that will not allow them to be put down.)
The two old dogs have been traveling between Thompson Falls to Trout Creek for two weeks. Also from what I hear the lady may be getting into a bit of trouble for just letting the dogs go to fend for themselves.
He is a big sweetheart but he now has focused on our parrot. It's a good thing our dog has a docile temperament as she has had to share our attention with other dog guests many times.
We have participated in many animal rescue actions. I bought a parrot from a bad pet shop and resold it to a good owner and even lost money on the deal but the bird is better off now so it was worth it. I taught it a few words while I was rehabilitating it too.

We were about to keep him but it's not in the cards. Here is his fixed up portrait.

Default The dogs are reunited.

Well a lady came over wanting her dog back and she had it's running buddy with her. (they growled at each other and she seemed exasperated as if she still needs to get rid of them .
It was fun having a house guest for a while.

We finally got some snow, or at least that's what some would call it.
I was walking around the backyard looking for interesting stuff to use my camera on and I found a mushroom growing out of the skirting wall of our little trailer here out in the boonies.
I'll post the mushroom photo then I'll put a few creations on that I whupped up from junk pictures.

Things will grow where they can.

This photo was the tip of a small pine tree.

This was just a leaf.

This one was just a shot out in my backyard of the trees and all.
You can still see a semblance of the trees upside-down.

It was only 5 degrees this morning at my cabin. How did you folks up North fare out?

No snow on the ground, course I live way down South of you folks.
