Angie & Masi

While I was up in Seattle for the holidays I had the chance to go watch my Dad and his friend Jerry put their two dogs through their paces. Angie (my dad's yellow lab) and Masi (Jerry's golden retriever) have both been trained as hunt trial retrievers and they are absolutely amazing to see in action! The dogs know hand signals for right, left, back, forward and can pretty much be directed wherever the owner pleases in order to retrieve fallen birds, or in this case rubber bumpers. The dogs seem to love the challenge, and whine with excitement before their turn!
