When you learn a lot about somebody...

Today for me was top notch and my next two blog entries will be a testament to how well things went.

I had the opportunity to participate in a duck hunt with an old friend, Rod and someone new, Dennis. I always joke about how you can't always make your buddy a good duck hunter, but you can always make a good duck hunter your buddy. Today was nothing short of just that. I've heard a lot about Dennis but never had the opportunity to meet him. Through his effective set up, quality calling, and passion for duck hunting, I realized most of all is his love for a 9 year old retriever named Lexi. After Dennis had said that her days in the blind are few in number, I felt compelled to take the time to photograph the pair sharing a day waterfowling. Here's a video paying tribute to a relationship that I can appreciate but not truly understand. Again I would like to thank Dennis and Rod for inviting me to share a spot in the blind...

Very nice tribute to Dennis and Lexi. That is undoubtedly one of the closest bonds there is. Dog gone it, just wish our four legged friends lived longer!
