Shih-tzu as a hunting dog?

Maybe there's another way to get a little white & black motion in the spread?

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

I was lavishing some attention on Schatzie, the family duck dog, when the little Maltese/Shih-tzu mix puppy Abby intruded into our moment. Pet me! Aren’t I cute? Rub my belly! She demanded. Yeah, cute…but mostly useless. I was thinking of what a live wire she is, always wiggling and bouncing around, streaking around the yard, back and forth, never seeming to tire. She’s easy to spot out back, even in the dark, the bright white fur, contrasted with the rich black of her ears and mask…

And then it hit me.

A field of lifeless plastic goose decoys. Wary birds approaching. And then Abby, launched like an out of control rocket as soon as I pull the flap on a little camo kennel. And in my mind I could see those geese diving into the inviting sight of a decoy spread filled with white and black commotion!

C’mere little dog…how’d you like to go hunting with daddy and your big sis Schatzie?
