Camille

The origin of the name Camille is French and the meaning of the name Camille is Perfect

Camilla, in Roman mythology, legendary Volscian maiden who became a warrior and was a favourite of the goddess Diana. According to the Roman poet Virgil her father, Metabus, was fleeing from his enemies with the infant Camilla when he encountered the Amisenus River. He fastened the child to a javelin, dedicated her to Diana, and hurled her across the river. He then swam to the opposite bank, where he rejoined Camilla. Living among shepherds and in the woods, Camilla became a skilled hunter and resolute warrior through her father's tutelage in the rustic arts. Virgil claimed that Camilla once ran so swiftly she could run over a field of wheat without breaking the tops of the plants or across the seas without wetting her feet. Camilla became the leader of a band of warriors that included a number of maidens, and fought in a battle against the Roman hero Aeneas; but she was killed by Arruns, an Etruscan, as she was chasing a retreating soldier.

At only 15 weeks Camille handled great around the shotgun and is retrieving pheasants after they were shot. Camille accelerated through milestones in training that a pup must be at before attempting to shoot birds around it. Please do not attempt this as Camille is an exceptional pup. Any pup or young dog must have successfully completed certain milestones in training before exposing them to hunting situations.

5 1/2 month old Camille with some of the results from her efforts. Camille did flush her own pheasants and did find downed birds even some difficult ones. We got into some sharp tail grouse and Camille's nose quickly adjusted to them making another solo find & retrieve. Camille is on her way to becoming a top bird dog.

In another picture Camille is in the brush her tail in rapid motion and she finds and flushes another pheasants, she is a solid gundog and when she hears the shotguns she knows a bird is going be on the ground for her to get. After the bird is flushed and shot it fell onto the ice making a quick and easy find for Camille, at only six months old now she is a good looking and performing pheasant dog.

Camille at Ohio Pheasants Forever 2016 State Hunt Challenge. Camille's performance was in the top three but unfortunately we had a poor shooting on the last bird. Camille did get the last bird but since it was poorly hit it didn't drop and flew a long ways. The extra time time get that bird cost us a top three spot for Camille.
