|Now deceased, Aleeta was the first "blue hen" as a producer for our kennel (see genetics). It was only years later that this was realized. She produced Cedarwoods Amadeus and Cedarwoods Calendar Girl which are the 2 most significant dogs in our line breeding program. She was an alpha female true to the core and it was her water retrieving that allowed me to discontinue housing a chesapeake for January waterfowling needs. She attacked the water like a freight train and there wasnt a crippled goose she would quite on in the Snake River's current.
