She is becoming a great waterfowl dog. We were excited to hunt the Skagit Valley in Washington. The guides said if she was behaved we could bring her. She is very well behaved. One of the other guys on the hunt shot down a duck that went into a blackberry briar. The guide's dog looked but could not find the bird. Chessie was given a chance and she looked and looked. Then out she came with the duck. At the end of the day the guides were so impressed with her they told us we could bring her hunting anytime we came. So like proud parents we love to brag her up.
