First Puppy Retrieves at Lake Winnepausakee

September 22, 2013

Lake Winnepausakee…Meredith, NH. Who knew our little chocolate Lab would finally WANT to jump into water to retrieve a bumper on a windy day at Winnepausakee.



4 months old. Before this she only went in the water when I carried her out to a spot where she actually had to paddle a few strokes. She headed back to shore pretty fast. I am a proud Mama. I am so happy that she really does have that retrieving instinct in her. BTW…her new friend, Misty, was a great influence on her. Misty fetched long retrieves while Ketli did shorter ones. Misty is an old friend of our two Goldens, Emma and Cabot. This was her first meeting with Ketli.

    Well done! I was nearly 6 months old before my people persuaded me to go swimming… and now they can’t keep me away from water 😉

    • I went to the ocean in RI today and I did not swim but I chased Meg and retrieved a bumper in water up to Meg’s knees.
