Taco, Tannerforge Poquito Burrito is a very handsome, people oriented guy. He has very nice conformation with excellent movement and is a solid pup. He also has been examined by a canine ophthalmologist at 7 weeks with no issues.
He lives with our son in Kingston. I am so glad this not so little guy is in the family!!!
Our retriever club had a picnic trial February 15th, 2009, when Taco was a little over a year old. Taco, who has never retrieved a duck in his life had his first taste of the world of hunt test training. He was just amazing! He sat, was fairly steady at the line and waited till I said Taco (as his send word). I had to give him a little encouragement with my left hand to get him to understand I wanted him to go and get the duck. Off he went, stood over the duck for a minute – not really sure he could believe his good fortune that this dead duck was for him! He grabbed it, brought it back to me leaping into the air with the duck in his mouth! He carried the duck for a few seconds more, trying to figure out what to do next and I called him over to me where he let me take it out of his mouth!
He did it 6 times altogether! We see a WC pass as his goal this summer.
