Issue 47 - Jun/Jul 2015

An era has come to an end. We had to put poor old Elsa down in early May this year, aged 10 and a half years old.

She had been a truly amazing dog for the last ten years, very reliable, capable, obedient, hardworking, and extremely photogenic! I hate to think how many ducks and geese she’s retrieved, and deer she’s tracked over the years. Her wise old head and leading by example has done a great job of teaching young dogs, and it is very sad she didn’t last another year to pass on her wisdom to our new batch of Chessie pups. She was going so strong up until she got cancer early this year that we thought she was going to go on for ever, but alas, it was not to be.

We buried her under the stone fruit trees in the front paddock, where she used to wander down for her breakfast every morning we weren’t in the hills in her latter years. She had earned the right to live on the loose, sleeping on the veranda and never straying from the garden except for her forays after plums for breakfast. Elsa old girl, you were truly one of the family, and will be sadly missed.

The other thing that has come to an end is the first series of our TV Show. The huge amount of positive feedback we’ve received has been truly humbling, and we’re well into filming episodes for series two now. What we would like though is some feedback on which episodes you enjoyed the most, so we know what to concentrate our filming on for the future. Please check back here next week to do the survey here when we have it up and running, and have your say about what hunts we do for series two!
