This is Ellie, my now 5 month old GSP pup. She had her first duck opening a few weeks ago and has been retrieving very well. I bought her primarily as a deer dog though, when she was a pup I shot a nice fallow with her but last weekend I managed to take my first deer with just her and myself while she was off the lead, a nice menil fallow spiker. She tracked him after the shot. Skun him out for a rug and should be a tasty little bit of meat. A long way to go but she's already my best friend and a pleasure to have by my side in the bush.
