Cork, new camp dog in training

Cork takes his first snowshoe walk today, kangaroo style

Cork, eight weeks and a few days old
We've signed up a new camp dog, Cork, a chocolate Labrador who comes to us through the Captain's Kennels in Lake Shore, Minnesota.
We brought Cork to our home in Nolalu on Saturday evening and since then he has kept me so busy I haven't had a chance to even take photos. His first chore was to bring down all those meddlesome tablecloths to a level where he could see them better. That was followed by installing perforated surfaces to all the lower furniture edges, perhaps to give us better grip, something we hadn't considered before. Once his work was done, he has spent a great deal of time resting.

Sounds like you've got your hands full. Looking forward to meeting him this summer. I'll try to remember not to leave my fishing towel hanging out of my pocket!

Can't wait to meet him. He's a very lucky pup to be raised in your capable, caring hands in two of the most beautiful natural places around. You know he'll be handy, he's already figured out a way to make the furniture more functional.

Congrats on the new camp dog. I have a question that I'm hoping you can answer in a future post. This winter has been particularly harsh. Based on your experience, and the decades of your family running bow narrows, how do you expect it to impact fishing on red lake in 2014?

Thanks everyone for welcoming Cork. I think he is going to be lots of fun at camp. He has provided me with a mid-winter workout, that's for sure. Want to get in better shape? Get a puppy!
Eric, I'll write a blog today with my thoughts about how a bitter winter might affect fishing.
