We had to say our final goodbye to Bell on August 16th. She would have been 13 in October on Norm’s birthday. Bell was a wonderful hunting dog earning two Utility Prize 1’s and going to the NAVHDA Invitational in 2004 and 2005. She learned to duck hunt in the Louisiana swamp and her desire to duck search and retrieve was her best attribute. Bell hunted all over the county with Norm and was known to express her displeasure when he missed a shot. Bell was not only a great hunting companion but a great family dog who represented all that is wonderful about the Spinone breed. She was a special dog and we miss her a lot.
