Two retrievers attentively watching two fishermen on Lake of the Woods, Ontario. The dogs, particularly the little one, want to go in and retrieve the lures.
The little brown one went along on one fishing trip. As soon as the lure hit the water, she dove out of the boat and started swimming toward the it. Fortunately we were able to pull her back into the boat before she connected with the lure. No more fishing trips for that one!

    LOL – this is awesome! What a great perspective the picture was taken from, and a great story! Ha! Thanks for sharing, and welcome to the Hunting and Fishing the Great Outdoors group! : )

  • Thanks, Ann. I was really afraid the little brown dog was going to dive in after these guys’ lures too!

    Brilliant shot! I love the angles in this capture. The boat cutting across the dock and the way the dock is jutting out into the water. But I especially the point of view which seems to be the exact one for the doggies! Really a great candid!
