Well he's gotten a lot bigger since a pup, so he has lost a little distance on his jumps, but his splash makes up for it. Cant wait to get him out hunting this year. His retrieves are a lot better now than they were last year. I chucked a rock into the pond from the yard without realizing he was standing there watching me. He dove for that until I had to pull him outta the pond. Almost 3 feet of water, and he would hold his head completely underwater for at least 15 seconds at a time. He's a ham.
