Chesapeake Bay Retriever= this board and post is in memory of my friends dog blue who died doing what he does best getting into trouble... He was only two and I had so many positive memories with him involved. He got into something poisonous and that caused some type of blockage in his brain he died yesterday... -Halle
The Spinone Italiano was developed in medieval Italy for retrieving game. It is a prodigious drooler. Some claim the dog has a tendency to stink- others insist this only happens in unusual circumstances. The Spinone is an efficient hunter, good with children, suited to urban life, able to handle any weather, and obedient. The thick, rough coat requires regular maintenance.
