Spring training 2014

Today's temperatures provided an opportunity to get outside, shake the cob webs off and do a little retrieving.  This video is of Nugget's 1st marks of 2014.  In places the snow was knee deep and even though we picked places for the marks to land that weren't too deep, the bumpers were torpedoing under the snow making it hard for the dogs to find and impossible for us to see.  For the young dogs we placed an orange bumper where the mark was supposed to fall.  You can see in the video the orange bumper laying above the snow and Nugget has to dig a bit to come up with the thrown bumper.
