That Iza is a force and quite unstoppable when she really put her heart into something was definitely proven yesterday. I took Iza up to the woods for a run, dressed up in her hunting west. And came back with it in pieces, I have had second thoughts about using the west, but of the opposite reason, I've been afraid she might get stuck somewhere in it. But as it was almost dark it was not a choice really.
It's usually a quite uneventful thing and with the sun setting any minute I was a bit surprised to find Iza pointing by the side of the path. As I know it's most mini birds in action in that area and Iza normally ignore those, but in the darkness she was all of a sudden made curious. I walked up slowly, saw two little birds leaving their branch in the small pine to seek higher and safer ground. But Iza was still pointing...
This is where I am supposed to use that short supporting whistle signal, but you know old habits die hard and as I started to praise her; -that's when the black grouse hen decided that we were one to many in the same spot. Iza, she flew too, but it's hard to follow anything at all in that part of the woods, even in broad daylight in the middle of winter ❄️ as it's just evergreen 🌲 and the are growing up on each other. So after 10 meters she had to give up, came back to me got a lot of praise and then the west breaking speeding started. I guess w might need a gps device now that she has discovered the new hunting grounds 😉 and perhaps a new west...
Well all of us write here, both humans and dogs ;) At least that was the plan but it seems it´s mostly me Robyn who´s attached to the keyboard...
