Have a female, Belle, GREAT for quail and pheasant. However, she shivers in the laundry room let alone out in the water LOL. Wouldnt dream of trying to let her retrieve ducks. This is my first year duck hunting ever...she rides along and we try and hit a few fields on our way home so she doesnt go crazy. Mines the same way Duckaholic, you cant keep her off the bed, and she literally lays right on top of me...hard to sleep with her elbows in my stomach, heh, but I wouldn't have it any other way, especially this time of year.
