Annie has made a home here. She’s a fabulous addition to our lives. Last week, she was awesome. She retrieved a bird I thought was lost in cattails for sure. Amazing nose. Thanks again for your grace, kindness and friendship. Quotes End

Roy impressed me a ton this weekend. He was finding birds in front of me, to the side and even in places I did not expect him to be. Also, I have yet to see him mishandle a bird he finds. His points are very staunch and he never crowds. Roy even retrieved a bird to hand. That is not to say he wanted to release the bird, but it was fun to see him saunter down the trail (past Barry) with a grouse in his mouth and walk right to me. Quotes End
