I had a Maine **** that was a better retriever than my black lab! He had a mouse toy and I tossed it across the room one day and he ran over, picked it up, and brought it back to me. I was floored! I tossed it again, and damned if he didn't retrieve it again. At some point the toy was lost/destroyed, and I could never get him to retrieve anything else. He was more like a dog than a cat, and would come running if I called him from another room. The only thing I couldn't do was get him to walk on a leash. I tried a few times, but he wasn't having any of it. Great cat...I miss him.
