I Would just like to tell you guys a little story. I went out on the youth hunt with a friend and his boy and his boys friend. They did not have a dog and wanted to see Sandy at work. Now ill be the first to admit that sandy is bye no means a champion hunter, however she is well behaved. and always on the leash when she is not getting birds for me. well to make a long story short she was attacked by another dog while we were waiting for our next shots!! This other dog was not leashed had no collar and a very ingorant owner. Sandy now has 32 stitches on her right front leg and shoulder and doesnt get to go hunting for 6 weeks.(oh yeah And a $250 dollar emergency vet bill). what gets me is the owner of this dog literally ran away from us and left the marsh. without even an apolgy.He almost had a dead dog but my friend grabbed his sons gun before he pulled the trigger.(Didnt want me or sandy hurt more.) any way please control your animals out in the field. and not let this happen to you. Thanks for reading this long ol post.
