Hi, my name is Goose, I was born in the winter of 2015. I live in Montana and spent my last 8 winters retrieving ducks and geese for my waterfowl guide Dad, Mike Bias. I started gun school right away before I was even a year old. But I guess I was a slow learner, as during my second summer I found myself at a different trainer, and…still in school. Then, yep, two more summers in school. I like ducks. I like geese too, but I really like ducks. Mallards are my favorite. I did not pick up my first pintail until I was four, but we don’t have many pintails in Montana, they’re pretty uncommon. And, I did not pick up my first pheasant until I was eight. When I am not working – usually through fall and winter, I like to travel. In summer, I like to float the rivers. I like swimming, I enjoy eating, and I am a big fan of sleeping.

Mona is a 2 year old Llewellin setter. She takes care of her humans, Joe Harris and fiance Hannah, as much as she gets fed. She loves to hunt in the mountains and plains across the United States and has chased many different species of birds each year. Despite the fact that she has four legs and fur, she sternly believes that she is a human not a dog. She just didn’t turn out the same as her other littermates. If she had thumbs and could speak English, we would all be in trouble!

You will often find her snoring in the front seat of her dad’s drift boat not caring about fishing at all, thinking to herself, “Is it duck season yet dad?”
Hey guys Rosalia here. You know La Chica Bonita. My Daaaad, Geoff Johnson, told me to write this in the third person, forgive me guys, I’m a chica dog and I don’t fully grasp all these human grammatical concepts. They tell me I was born in Oklahoma, not Arizona. What does it matter, I wasn’t there too long. I’ve spent most of my life in Idaho sitting in a drift boat licking fish. Every fall I get to go some place my Daaad refers to as the Cosmic Prairie. Thats my favorite time of the whole year! We chase the birds around, I point em, and my Daaaad tries to shoot them. Any way guys I really like to fish, so if you go with my Daaaad tell him you want me to go as well. I’ll help you finish your lunch. If you’re lucky l’II lick a fish or two.
