She’s a hunter, a tracker, and a pointer, but most definitely not a heeler. Perhaps it was my funny shoes, but she didn’t seem to have any interest in hanging around me for long. We made one lap around the neighborhood in which time she managed to nearly kill me and herself about a dozen times. This is a post-run photo and you can tell she just wants to go out and do it all over again.
