Emma (Mrs. Peel) is Spencer's best friend in the whole world, and he loves her dearly. They work and play harmoniously together, quartering in the breeze as GSPs (German Shorthair Pointers) usually do, their elegant noses raised and working furiously to pinpoint the scent of rabbit, deer, wild turkey, grouse or anything else in the woods for that matter. We love watching them together.
The two friends honor each other's point every time, and they hold their points, never giving chase to the wild creatures they sniff out in the woods. When the sun goes down and the day is done, they curl up together on the hearth to sleep and snore in happy unison, and sometimes they continue running together in their dreams.
As the elder in the equation, Mrs. Peel is the boss and no mistake. Her talent for digging holes and unearthing stuff along the trail (as shown here on yesterday's ramble) knows no bounds.The lady is a champ.
