Good ol’ Ace

The elderly chocolate lab here at the shop recently had his 13th birthday.  He spends everyday here at Tailwaters Flyfishing Co. and represents it well.  Ace is usually found sleeping due to his old age, but will randomly appear when you are eating lunch.  Shocker, huh?  Ace has a keen sense for all the soft spots in the shop.  If we put a soft product out on the floor, he will be the first to claim it as his sleeping mat.  On Monday we placed a few sale shirts in our mini Hyde drift boats, and sure enough, ol’ Achy was the first to make a bed out of it!!

    Ace was named for David’s granddad. Ace was the self-selected grand-daddy name David’s grandfather picked.
    David’s choice of this name was a complete sympathy ploy as he had been instructed NOT to buy a dog while still at U.T. (How could we tell David he had to give “Ace” away?)
    Anyway, Ace’s AKC papers came along and incredibly, Ace and Ace had both been whelped on the same day, December 1.
