    There was some fur in this clump, never found out what it was but she was barking at it so it definitely wasn’t a bird, only barks at furry critters—-lousy pic but check out the whirling dervish tail action  ;D

    She really does blend in sometimes, especially when we’re in the woods…which is why I got her the new day-glo orange hunting collar and the massive cowbell  ;D  Plus the collar is plastic (or something) so it doesn’t end up stinking like her leather ones.

    Open fields are where she’s really in her element but unfortunately farmers aren’t as “generous” with access over here.  🙁

    he will go in up to his ankles and that’s about it  ::) we did get him in up to his elbows once cause he thought there was something interesting in the water.. he soon jumped out when he realised it was just a rock  😀

    Not bad considering he spent most of the first year of his life jumping over puddles and mud  ::)

    Thanks all.  🙂

    Bev, in all seriousness the recall is really very good right now even with high distractions. I’ve been challenging her more but a switch must have gone off in her wee head and all of a sudden she just wants to go where i go. I never could do the “follow me I’m so very interesting”  thing… so I gave up on that, i just tried to relate to her that I would always lead her into some good times and no matter what she’s found in the woods whatever I’ve got is more interesting  🙂  I dunno, that’s the only way i can explain it.  :-\

    The other day she literally chased a duck up the river swimming , jumping through the water when it got shallow until the duck remembered it could fly  ::), she then separated another duck and did the same thing again, then another duck until I whistled for her and mid-chase she turned and swam directly to me on the shore  😮  Like I said, methinks a light bulb went off in her wee Sadie noodle  ;D

    I really have to get a video camera~!
