In 2010 Bodie won the American Chesapeake National
Specialty. An accomplishment that surpassed my widest
dreams. Made even sweeter because he was owner handled
by myself in a ring full of pro's and other well known
Bodie likes to work and be with his special people.
He breezed through his rally obedience titles. And his
CD title was earned quickly and easily. The stress of
competition never seemed to affect him, and he was calm
as could be on the long sits and downs in competition.
However, Bodie really shines when in the field
hunting. Bodie is a quiet working dog, even when he gets
excited when birds or bumpers are about to be thrown for
him to retrieve.
Bodie's personality is what makes him special. A
clown at heart, he does things to make you smile. He
loves to lay on your feet at night, and if he can, he
tries to be in your lap instead. He loves puppies, and
he spends his time showing them the "ropes" around the
house and at the training grounds.
