Her name is Princess. We adopted her at age 5 in 2005. Trained as a special use dog for nursing homes and schools for abused children she had no concept of how a real dog should act. Her role is simply to love and be loved. She won't fetch a thing. We shoot shotguns competitively and take Princess to every shoot. I was concerned about the long term affects this would have on her hearing. We tried foam and cotton in her ears but she would just shake it loose. I searched the Internet and located a photo of lab in the cockpit of a plane wearing ear muffs. I instantly knew this is what I needed. Princess is so agreeable - she never once tried to rub the muffs off. These pictures were taken at the 2007 MO State Sporting Clays Championship this past August. She get's her photo taken a lot. I have also passed your info onto other shooters who like to bring their family pets along for the ride. I recall a fellow shooter showing up the following year with a little bitty pair on a pug -so cute. We have converted our shooting cart to include a platform bed w/ couch, shade cloth and cooling fan for Royal comfort - after all her name is Princess. Enjoy Neva Kay W.
