    Mine FBL is a 70 lber during duck season. The rest of the year she’s anywhere between 60-65lbs. I throw her extra food when during the season because of the work load. We do a lot of hiking in the fuges and my gf takes her hiking and jogging around the neighborhood throughout the week. We drop her intake to keep her lean and conditioned during the off season. 73C8F8B2-FAD0-4368-A56C-C4ABD96B4BBD.jpeg

    I guess if I could choose looks... which I can, I'd go for as Kevin said them big'ol downs syndrome Labs. Either love'um of hate'um it's hard to beat a big'ol block headed tule stomper in my opinion. Field trails don't me spit to me as long as the dog has a good nose and comes when I call them.

    I don't hunt rice fields, which is about as easy as it gets for a dog.
    Give me a good refuge/ tule dog above a robotic rice field dog any day of the week.:yes:yes:yes

    IMG_3324.JPG Just had my pup Mac at the vet for a checkup. Turned 1yr February 1st. Weighed in at 67 lbs. Vet was pleased at weight I have him at. Said she sees way too many fat labs.

    All 3 of my labs have been in the 90+ range. All were great dogs, but like someone said, first 2 have hip issues and the one now has blown out both acls but still getting the job done. Tpol surgery really is a blessing. First two labs lived to be over 15 years old,current lab is 8 almost 9. Hoping he's here for 15yrs.

    I have a female from the previous breeding, January 2018. A dark yellow. At a year old she's 48 pounds. She's lean, wish for Idaho she was a little bigger. But, she got all the "go" that I need in a retriever. She's got an off switch. But, hunting I haven't seen her give up. The fact that there is a repeat breeding from a breeder says they've had positive results from their first go. If someone is looking at a pup from this litter, I'd be willing to show you Alice.
