Your dog looks awesome! He could build up some chest-muscle, but I really like him.
And I envy you for your time with him. I am without a dog for two years now, but if things work out, I will have my own house next year and then it is time to think about a dog joining us.
Wirehair is high on the list!

Ya, he's been putting on muscle!

Was 53 pounds a month and a bit ago. He's 61 pounds as of last week. I agree, his hindquarters are tremendously strong, but his chest is a little wimpy in comparison. Maybe I can get him to lift weights with me?

We're working on the whole notion of hunting. He hunts all the time - but not with me/for me. Working on that and he's starting to get the idea. :)

Mama and I had decided to not get another dog after Clark passed away last spring... Well, that didn't last long.

Guy

The pup is truly handsome, Guy. No doubt you are enjoying him immensely.

Nice graduation pic! He looks like he's enjoying himself. Amazing a dog can run around in water that cold, shiver like the blazes and still be as "birdy" as all get out. Nice to see that he's working on being a great partner! CL

This afternoon I walked about 5.7 miles, and Maverick did what he does.

We're both getting stronger!

Thank you. My wife told us that the dog and I saved each other. She may have a point.

Sure like that action on that picture, Guy. That pup looks quite determined.

Looks to me like you better work on his retrieve and take up water fowling!!! He'd look darn handsome carrying a spoonbill out of that puddle! Nice pic! CL

Lord...there's a reason you married that girl...Wisdom friend.
