Well I couldn’t be happier with the puppy tonight. He spotted a small squatter about 15 metres away, I could see it had mixy and hadn’t spotted us, so rather than shoot it, I decided it was a good chance for Dida.
This was the first time he’s had a run on a rabbit, and it was an ideal opportunity for him. I was most pleased that it wasn’t just a pick up job, it actually made a run for the bush, and he turned and nailed it with no hesitation.
He’s been funny about bothering to pick up shot rabbits, so my only concern was to let him have a mouthful, and not even think about a retrieve.
The fact that this rabbit had mixy means that we done it a real favour, it’s better to go quickly in a few seconds like this, than to suffer over a long period and eventually die. This was his dinner tonight, minus the head and entrails.
