Brittany For Waterfowl

I had a Brittany while growing up and I believe that when I can finally get dogs I want a lab and a brittany. Now I know that I would have the waterfowl hunting covered by the lab but has anyone ever heard of using a Brittany for waterfowl? My Brittany loved water but a hunter she was not. We got her way too late to train her.

Have had Brits for over 20

Have had Brits for over 20 years and while most were natural retreivers and could do water retreives,  they can't take the cold like a lab would.  Fine for early season waterfowl but I wouldn't send mine in the water in late Nov here in Wis.  Would be totally cool to have a Brit that was steady to wing and shot and have the lab retreive on land.  I have seen them work together and it is ....well....priceless
