Brian took Mattie on her first (successful) bird hunt last Friday with his friend Jonathan. It took Mattie a little while to catch on to what she was suppose to do, but then she was a fantastic bird-dog! Here are some photos of her first retrieval of a grouse.
Jonthan decided to help her show off in the last photo.
Besides bird hunting there was also jeep adventures (which means getting stuck and being 5 hours late for dinner)...and some riding on a bulldozer left behind for the weekend.
Here's Brian pointing at the jeep (after it broke down) before starting the 8 mile trek back to the truck and trailer. Go figure it wouldn't make the 20 mile round trip...
