Matt & Karen,

I have owned & trained retreivers since 1977 and after looking in many directions to find "That Lab". I decided after talking to Karen for the first time a year ago this month to choose a Yellow Male puppy from a Trooper litter who was a little smaller in stature and weighing in as an adult at between 65 - 70 lbs.

Our male yellow "Tucker" is one of three males & six females from the breeding of Trooper and Larry Hansen's Prairie Marsh Maggie of Tracy, MN.

Tucker was introduced to our home in June of 2013 and brought so much joy and happiness to our entire family (granddaughters included.) Within a few days I introduced him to a lake close to home beginning in June of 2013 and we spent the mornings of everyday there last summer as he instantly became an extremely adept swimmer, consistently and playfully enjoying the retreives with a "Teal" Dead Fowl Trainer.

Afternoons have been full of fun, obedience training, field work on my acreage and introduction to decoys (both field & water). He spent two weeks at Dokkens Oak Ridge Kennels in Northfield, MN for his Intro to Gun & Live Birds the latter part of October 2013 and has been back there a couple times since for live bird work by Harold Nielsen, the Head Trainer and their staff.

He is now 9 months old and to date, I have shot 56 upland birds over him including the 10 Chukars he started out on back in November of 2013 @ 6 months of age where he went into a full "locked" point on his first hunt at Bear Creek Hunting Preserve in Hinckley, MN.

He certainly is Troopers son! So much drive, determination and intelligence! He hunts so hard and absolutely drives the Pheasants right out of their roosts.
In December @ 7 months of age, he flushed a pair of Roosters that he had tracked hard into a strong NW headwind for 75 yards and when they flushed, I knocked down the first bird to my left and I could tell he wasn't hit real well. The bird hit the ground running with Tucker right on him and they both disappeared out of sight and out of sound.

A long 5 minutes elapsed and I hit the whistle 4 -5 times. I waited another four (4) minutes and I looked to my left and here was Tucker, Rooster in his mouth and looking at me exhausted and very proud!!

With all the snow we have had and two (2) feet of it standing on the ground, I have actually witnessed Tucker hunting completely under the snow and putting Roosters in the air.

"Block head."

That's perfectly normal (the loose skin,) and it's normal for him to have a blocky head. Actually...it's preferred. It's known as an "English" Labrador Retriever or a "Blockhead."
As long as you had him checked by a Veterinarian to determine his HW status, then HeartGard is a good chewable HW preventative.
