Shad

Dog of the Day: “Buster”

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Buster

“Buster,” Dave Lardy’s Labrador retriever, was the type of companion every dog owner dreams of. The sharp-looking, hard-hunting Lab passed away this April. “He never growled, mistreated or blew off a single person he ever met. He was an extremely friendly dog, always happy to meet new people. Besides shedding his white hair on a black pair of slacks, there was nothing a person could hold against Buster,” says Dave’s son, Ben Lardy. Buster helped introduce both Dave and Ben to hunting. “He could sniff out a table scrap small enough to be invisible to the human eye, but would also track a downed bird like it was his life’s mission,” says Ben, who is now a Pheasants Forever farm bill biologist.
