We brought him home Monday night. His name is Otis. We gave him that name because his litter was born in Otis, Oregon. He weighs 17 1/2 pounds and is 17 weeks old. I'll be training him to accompany me when fishing on foot and also to ride in the canoe and motorized fishing boat. I've had four labs before him so I generally know what to expect. Nice to have a fishing buddy again who can go when I can.
