Ode to Creek

March this year marks the passing of my most favorite male GSP – Creek.  I have told all that he was 13 yrs old, but when dating his AKC pedigree, I figured out he had just turned 12.  Sorry Creeker, I was trying to make you older.  H

He was slowing down some, having problems with his ankles. But if the farmer were to say “let’s go duck hunting” he would be ready in a flash.  He loved going hunting in CA, was an amazing retriever both on land and water (which is not the norm for GSPs); there hadn’t been any duck hunting since moving to MO but he was always ready.  

We couldn’t have asked for a more congenial personalty in our collection of canines than Creek.  He will be sorely missed in so many ways.
