    Teal's (GWP) turn at grouse counting

    Another brilliant day today. Took Teal to give Dotty a rest as it's bloomin' hard work.

    Teal worked her socks off for me, and just kept going and going, even though she must have been tired. I was very pleased with the way she handled the grouse, even though they were a bit wild at times. I was incredibly pleased with her when she pointed a woodock as they are tricky to get the hang of.

    Absolutely knackered, but thoroughly enjoyed the few days up on the moor.

    I don't blame you for wanting one ;-) She isn't as hairy as I would like but she is my Tealy weally so I'll forgive her for that lol. Extremelly biddable and very hard working, with a lot of drive.

    I explained what it was in this thread: http://www.dogsey.com/showthread.php?t=165101

    Really enjoy doing it as it's so nice to see the dogs working how they should be.

    Oh that sounds like too much work - you lost me when you said Co-ordinates - rubbish at Geography and Maths :lol:

    As long as the dogs enjoy it though! Thats all that counts :D

    She is gorgeous - I looked after a GWP today and she was lovely! Wouldn't mind stealing Teal for a day though ;)

    Great pictures Helen, nice to see a dog doing what it was bred to do, especially on wonderful moorland.

    They are such a great breed.

    I will go wherever I get sent lol. That was in the Dales, and I did have another estate over there but the headkeeper decided he was going to do them himself. I possibly have one up in Scotland next month but will see how that pans out.
