I must clean my kill.

Jodi says:

So do you really let them eat the pheasants? Wouldn’t that be counter-productive? I mean I could so see Delilah trying to swallow the bird before she brought it back. LOL

I only let them eat the pheasant carcass when I’m not paying attention to them and they run off to who knows where and find the carcass pile. Yes it would be counter-productive and we don’t let them eat them on purpose. If I turn my back on Gambler and don’t take the bird from him right away after a retrieve he will rip it to shreds and that is a no no. I will give them scraps from animals or bones but won’t let them eat a whole fresh killed bird on their own. It creates bad habits at hunt tests. 🙁

FitDog Friday
Remember to join in on mutt-a-thon_final. Sand Spring gang will be joining in on the fun. Thank you PetsMove for putting on this virtual event!
As for fun this past week this is what the gang did for their exercise. We went along with John to help him check his traps in the marsh. I walked and the dogs ran from muskrat house to muskrat house in the snow helping John check for critters.
And were off, checking traps is fun and interesting.

We climb on top of the houses to gain strength in our front shoulders.

We steady ourselves on the houses looking down in the hole.

We go up and down on the house until it is time to move on.

We had all kinds of fun checking the houses and running across with wide open spaces through the snow.

    Running in the snow is so much fun but since it has been below zero for a few days we can only be out for short amounts of time. Sorry to see you have to share your beds with cats, we have to too! Sometimes I sleep in a cat bed (hanging over the sides) just to piss them off and smell up their beds! Happy Friday!

      They have a blast, they are constantly looking into the basket to see what is in there. They are total critter hounds. Gambler even found some muskrat houses that John had missed. I do have to admit thou if it wasn’t for SlimDoggy and PetsMove I wouldn’t be out there taking pictures of their trapping adventures because it is just to darn cold and I hate the cold but I stop using that as an excuse and get out there with my dogs so Thank you.

    Great FUF and thanks for joining the blog hop! I swear I can only keep up because of recaps. 🙂 LOL

    Thanks for answering my question. I could see Delilah stopping on the field trying to swallow the bird as opposed to bringing it back. She loves to water retrieve but I think we need to stick with bumpers. LOL

    Have an awesome weekend and Happy New Year to you and the Sand Spring gang!

    That looks like a fun way to get out and get some exercise in the snow. Something different is always good in my book.
    Love the bed photos….it looks like our house, you never know who’s going to be on what bed, and who gets left on the floor! 🙂
