If that isn't an impressive litter of dogs, I don't know what is. Calvin is the only one without a title of some sort, but if they gave awards for hiking or being sweet, he would have a few initials before and after his name too.... :-)

Future Plans: Who knows? Calvin likes to go on hikes as often as possible, chase anything we throw, and he loves to swim after ducks and geese or just to cool off. He "hunts" all the time, whether in his back yard searching for the evil squirrels or out on hikes looking for birds and other wildlife, so he may someday do some form of field trials or more formal hunting.
