      LEXIE - Update

      Aye Mates,

      Ye may remember me beautiful gundog trainee LEXIE BELLE ON THE COBBLE, nearly white as a ghost with coal black features. Given that she is from primarily show stock lineage there was some initial doubt regarding her potential as a gundog.

      I am pleased to report that LEXIE is enjoying field work and has been a pleasurable companion for her owner Scott whilst bird hunting. LEXIE has been hunting both upland birds and waterfowl with Scott and she just made her first retrieve of a Canada Goose last weekend. :-)


      LEXIE BELLE ON THE COBBLE - First retrieve of a Canada Goose

      LEXIE is currently spending the hunting season with Scott and gaining practical experience in applying the many skills she developed in her early gundog training. LEXIE will continue with more advanced level gundog training in 2017 and will be campaigned in both HRC and AKC licensed hunt test events.

      Grand work by both LEXIE and Scott!

      Cheers,

      Good work, Lexie! I think there have been a number of "show stock" huntin' dawgs on here. Too bad Pete and Satch aren't around to tell their tales of upland bird hunting, too!

      Wow! That is a large bird. How much does a goose like that typically weigh? My dogs will never be gundogs, but I love reading (and seeing photos) about others' adventures. Thanks!

      Canada Geese can range in weight from a little over 6 lbs. to over 19 lbs. and their are several subspecies of varying sizes.

      Good work Lexie! Love seeing a lab doing everything they can do, in the ring or in the field.
