"Gretchen" is the “social butterfly” that her name implies. Her playful nature was evident in the puppy box. She tormented her littermates with games of keep-away and quickly learned using them as ladders made for an easy escape route. Yet, when she tumbled out of the box in the middle of the night, she never cried for help but felt completely comfortable entertaining herself. Her devilish spirit was and is easy to be attracted to, not to mention she makes us laugh on a regular basis.
As an adult Gretchen hasn’t lost that spark, but she has grown into an honest and cooperative hunting buddy. She’s learned the ropes on the prairies and in the potholes of North and South Dakota and the ruffed grouse woods of Wisconsin. She’s equally comfortable in all places and when she’s at home she’ll still never pass up a game of tag or “rough and tumble” with the rest of her dog family. The party is always wherever Gretchen is!
