    We had a family of five babies living under our garage a few years back. They are so cute! They loved sun bathing on the deck.

    Great shots, Rob.
    Don't your dogs chase them away, or they not on your property?

    The are under our front step, we have a electric dog fence so they can not get to the front where they are. One of our dogs stares at them out the window. I have them stay when I open the side door and the noise alerts squirrels, chipmunks, and woodchucks to make to the hills :) So far no issues with them. Also amazingly the dogs and ducks do great together not sure why I have springers which are known for being bird dogs, ours are known as couch dogs.

    They are so cute. I have been trying to get pics of some young beavers in my big pond. Their parents keep them hidden really good. But I see the little foot prints.

    Springers are flushers, not killers. I had labs which are fetchers, not killers either. They arent bred to hate birds, just harrass or retreive them. Your springers are trained well to do your bidding, which is not harrass the birds. No harm in that.

    They are a permanent fixture here. Around our house, out in the fields. Just like rabbits they love it here, I have enough plants I usually don't even notice what they eat up.

    That is cool. I have a very old ground hog back by my shed, I've never seen babies, the squirrel rehabber I know does these as well, she came home one day and found her adult she released dead, it had a walnut in its wind pipe, must have choked to death. Sad. She said they are very friendly.
