It was early spring a couple of years ago and I had made every effort to get my big puppy Baron to water retrieve. He wasn't at all keen about diving into fast running trout streams. A local deserted State Park with a nice sandy beach finally did the trick .... sort of. He made some nice retrieves till he got back to shore, whereupon he attacked the stick relentlessly. Pawing, biting and barking at it. As near as I could figure he must have thought it was a snake. GSD's are known for their intellignece. Sure!
