Nice to Meet Y’all!

Hi Y’all,
We have some new followers who don’t know much about me.  I thought it would be fun to join in the “meet an’ greet” and tell y’all a little about myself.
First, I am a Chesapeake Bay Retriever.  We love to work.  Any job will do.  We love to retrieve…if you don’t give us a job and things to carry, we’ll find something. 
Second, I was originally just keeping a journal for family and close friends, but it has evolved into more as new, unrelated readers joined and started asking me questions. 
Third, I spend my time in the southeastern USA.  In the summer we escape the heat  by adjourning to the mountains.
Fourth, I live indoors with my Humans.  When they are outside, I usually am too.  I’m never outside alone. 
Humans are very confusing to us.  I try to point out how to communicate better with us.
We retrievers want to be helpful to humans.  I’ll show you some things I do to help my humans.
I recently finished a series on the difficulty getting my allergies under control.
I also did a series on learning to respond to a whistle from a distance. 
I recently passed my 5th birthday.  Sigh…
I promised to show y’all some of the things we saw Sunday, so here’s one.
Stay tuned for more pictures

  2. Hawk, you look like you're getting ready to take that golf cart for a joy ride ... perhaps a new part-time job?!
