Julie was a “project” dog for me.  Wayne Curtis, Fox Hollow Retrievers, asked me if I wanted a dog to train.  He had a connection that had two well-bred female pups, about 6 months of age, that needed to be sold.  I said sure, and boy did I receive a “project.”  Originally, my plan was to train Julie for a short time and sell her as a hunting dog, but after spending only a few minutes with her, I knew that would never happen.  I fell in love with her attitude and energy.  She is small, but explosive.  She runs hard and fast, is tireless, and takes corrections very well.  She loves to train and to hunt.  Being small affords her the opportunity to assume she is a “lap dog” as well and she will take every opportunity to sit upon anyone’s lap who will have her.  In a duck blind, she is as focused and willing as the best dogs I have hunted with.
