On the last hunt of the season, Trip and I waited at the top of a hill for the rest of the group.
You may now make admiring comments on how handsome my dog is and reflect on his fantastic behavior that he was actually waiting with me at the top of a hill.
Don’t worry, there’s time to let all the beauty of it sink it, plenty of time to expounded on his greatness. We’ve months of waiting before it’s time to walk the fields again.
Now that is one GORGEOUS pup!
Ahhh – just exactly what we wanted to hear, thanks Barb! 🙂
My, what a handsome beast (with an astounding array of collars).
Why thank you. He does have quite the “jewelry” on. I swap out his everyday collar for his blaze hunting one that has extra phone numbers of family members we hunt with for just in case. And the top is an e-collar that is mostly used for the locator that is the black thing sticking off of it. I can set it to either beep every few seconds so I can hear where he is running and then it will beep faster when he locks on point. Or just to beep on point.
He’s a big running dog who is good at checking back in with me. Without him beeping I’d spend more time yelling for him only to have him fly by and give me a disgusted look because he was doing what he was supposed to be all along and I just couldn’t see him through the tall grass and cover. I know this because in the photo he is also wearing a bell because the locator on the collar died and while the bell helps in the wind the sound just floats away!
And of course if I touch any of those things ever he bounces off the walls because he knows we are going out! 🙂
And you didn’t even ask… 😉
Just a bit independent minded, is he? 🙂
That’s what makes him a fantastic hunter… when he’s not being fantastically difficult!
But I suspect you already knew that! 😉
Pretty dog. I hope he is a pet as well as a hunter!
The dog that naps on my bed and rests his head on my leg while I’m on the computer? Yup, he’s a family pet too. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
