Meet Gracie.  According to Gracie, her sole purpose in life is to retrieve.  She will bring back anything, including the remote control if gracie-003.jpgyou drop it. 

 Gracie is a professional retriever at Scattergun Lodge every fall.  gracie-004-2.jpghttp://www.scattergunlodge.com/retrievers.htm  Scattergun Lodge in South Dakota has 30 of the finest retrievers in the country.  Each Fall, Gracie gets on the Labrador Bus and heads  out west to do her job.  She LOVES it.  She spends 2-3 months going out with hunters and retrieving their pheasants and she is very good at her job.  In order to stay in shape during her off season, she spends time swimming and retrieving whenever possible.  She will retrieve for as long as you are willing to throw something.  When she is done, her favorite place to cool off is either the pond, the stock tank or a mud puddle, whichever is closer, she’s not fussy.
