Tennant "The Man"
Tennant is really "the man" now......on Friday he went on his first proper day at the shoot.
He was so good, we were unimaginably proud of him.....he never ran into shot, he returned on every whistle, he sat at my feet without complaint on the drives we were shooting, and he hunted well on the beating drives. he succesfully pointed a woodcock as well as putting another one up.
Unfortunately his only retrieve, was washed away down the river and so I considered it too tricky for him at this early stage. A bird came down about 20 feet from him (someone elses) and another dog was sent for it....he never flinched!!
he was a true star!
