Update on Autumn : I took her to North Dakota last weekend for their Pheasant opening weekend. She did great. We had six guys and shot our limit 3 days in a row. She retrieved the birds better than any of the other dogs there. The birds were running on the pointing dogs but she would force them in the air. It was great! She was by far the best behaved dog in the group. We shot several that were across the river from us and she came up with the retrieve. Brings them right to my side every time.
