Chinese students attending the Living Word High School in Jackson were treated to a demonstration of a Labrador retriever that is trained for waterfowl and pheasant hunting in the United States. The demonstration was organized by Doug Haag, who works at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and his 9-year-old daughter, Greta. The dog’s name is Mable and she is 9-months old. She performed a number of retrieving acts on land and in the water. A highlight for the students was watching Mable take a running leap into a pond on the grounds of Living Word School and swimming back with an object representing a duck. After giving over the object, Mable shook off the water on her coat — again to the delight of the students. In this picture, Mable is seated in her personal “blind” that shields her from view of the birds flying overhead.
