I’ve got a dog with drive.
In pointing dog speak that means that when I take him out looking for birds, he is willing to hunt every bit of the cover we are in and beyond.
It means that when he is out in the field with his nose to the wind, it doesn’t matter how tired he is or how long we’ve been out. He still flies over the ground with enthusiasm.
It means that when a bird goes down running, he runs after it.
It means he never quits.
In everyday-life-speak that means that he digs holes like he means to go to China.
And it means that when his paws don’t work, he uses his teeth.
Yup, I’ve got a dog with drive.
