This afternoon

Here's stupe. (A Labrador Retriever retrieving)
Gifted with a perfectly good coat and enough sense to know that a handbag will only slow her down in life, the dog likes to focus on things that are important. One of those things, she'll readily admit, is finding ruffed grouse in the woods. Another is telling you that one is nearby and a third one is flushing it into the air. When I make my feeble contribution to this lopsided team she rewards me by a fine retrieve. When I don't she just stands there and looks at me.
