Eric got Spice as a puppy and has enjoyed training her. As well as retrieving ducks, she has a lot of other tricks too. She is a smart and obedient. This winter when we were dog sitting for Eric and Jo, she would even discipline the other dogs when they tried to get on our sofa. It was cute and a big help. She is a good friend and we all enjoy having her around the ranch and look forward to seeing what caliber of hunting dog she develops into.
