Pete Houser's Rosie

My friend Pete Houser has a fine young setter named Rosie. I hunted with Pete when Rosie was a pup and she was a real handful. But with perseverance and a bit of help from pro trainer Sheldon Twer, Rosie has come along well, and is a fast, wide and stylish bird dog. She shows her style in the photo above, taken last season in Montana, pointing sharp-tail grouse.

Rosie is by Been's Great Day out of Tug Hill Ballerina - both proven producers, and Pete is fortunate to have her. Pete does not trial Rosie - she could be competitive - but she is lots of fun to run and hunt over.
