THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE O National Geographic Society Painting by Edward Herbert Miner "AMPHIBIOUS" RETRIEVERS FETCH GAME THEIR MASTERS SHOOT OVER WATER A duck in its mouth, a LABRADOR RETRIEVER trots up the beach, while another sits near a yellow specimen of this breed, introduced into England by fishermen from Newfoundland. The CIHESAPEAKE BAY RETRIEVER (left center and wading) is a native American. Its ancestors were two Newfoundland puppies, landed in Maryland from a wrecked English brig in 1807 and bred to local nondescript retrievers. These water dogs brave rough, icy waters, their coats resisting moisture like a duck's feathers.
