Well, that must have put your heart at it's max BPM. I'm glad everything worked out in the end, and getting a little wet was the biggest problem.
Ice is scary, luckily she went off the edge and didn't break through. I always worry about ice.
Sometimes they just get away from you.
Add in shotguns, snow,sleet ice,deep thick cover, then add a pushed deer or two, and you really have to be on your toes.
Peanut was just following her instincts. Truth be told, she may have worked it out all on her own, but there was no need to risk it.
They can get away so quickly.
Now is definitely too soon, but Peanut will one day be fully capable of deepwater entries and even breaking through a little ice to return.
It takes a lot to nerve yourself up to train her and expose her to it, but in the end she will be safer. You're going to get really wet and cold when you begin to expose her to it, should you decide that as a course.
