Grady was mischievous and Keith was known to chase him down to retrieve a steak out of his mouth. He had an excellent nose, good hunting instincts and desire for birds and a strong, independent run in the field. He loved to swim and retrieving a bird in the water was his favorite. He was willing to try anything we asked of him. He loved the show ring, visiting with people and enjoyed a good howl with everyone joining in. Most of all, he was an amazing dog who brought so much joy to those who were closest to him. There were few like him and he is missed to this day.
