    I have a GSP and GWP. My GSP is a little over a year old my GWP is about 8 months. I'm looking forward to seeing what they can do. I talked to the trainer about my GSP, he was sceptical about about what I said about his drive. After he got him and worked with him, he agreed that he was a special dog. He is a black and white and said he was not a fan of that coloring but he changed his mind.

    I look forward to working him this year.

    Fire ants destroyed our bobwhite population, I haven’t heard one in years.
    For ducks.. heck my ponds are small enough that a johnboat works just as well on the rare occasions they don’t land on dirt.

    Now for squirrels, working on that. The current bitch has them halfway eaten before you can flip the safety off. She is a gem purpose farm dog, not a natural pointer. Anything bigger than her gets herded into a tight pack. Anything smaller than her gets consumed. Minus chickens, she shows no interest in them, to the point she will ignore them walking on her while she stares at a mouse hole waiting on one to suicide itself.

    I’ve owned some good pointers through the decades-gsp’s, brittany’s And a couple great English setters. Have even taken white tailed ptarmigan here in the states with them. Currently have a pointing black lab but I don’t like her much! Young and dumb. . .

    I am a fan of the European versatile breeds. I currently hunt with a Pudelpointer, and training a Picardy spaniel. Grouse in the forest and on the prairie, partridge, pheasant, and more rarely ptarmigan, snipe, ducks, geese, and cranes in the marshes and fields. I wish we could use our dogs for leashed blood tracking big game big but it is not legal in Saskatchewan . I am working to change that law.

    As a dog lover and one who hunts with dogs this thread makes me all warm and fuzzy inside !

    Thanks to Tokkie for starting this thread and to all who have posted pics of adventures outdoors with their "buds".

    Here's my two down at the beach having fun. IMG_1383.JPG

    Just spent the week in Cyprus and thanks to the kind folks at the Cyprus Kurzhaar Club I got to see some dogs and meet some great people who share the same passion. IMG_20190704_070218_242.jpg IMG-20190704-WA0033.jpg IMG-20190703-WA0000.jpg

    Ridgewalker, my two also have their own couch in the lounge room !

    Brace yourself for the oncoming inevitable pain associated with the loss of a best mate.
    I recently went through it and despite all of the trajedies, accidents, illnesses and human berievements I have suffered in my life nothing compares to the loss of one's dog.

    Started our 15 month old GSP in her first water and tracking tests last week, decided to start her in all 3 classes although she is still a young dog and this would be her first official tests. She managed to score full marks in young dog, open class and Elite class for both water and tracking. This is the first time in Swedish history for our breeds that any dog has accomplished this. Started her mother in Elite class too and happy to say full scores there too, so 80 out of a possible 80 points for two dogs with the pup doing 60 of those. IMG-20190710-WA0002.jpg

    Had a great season last year. Hunted hard, lots of wild birds. This female GSP is unbelievable, she’s got it all. She swam a swollen creek and 4 inches of snow for one of those winter birds and did it right now. We were bowled over. Can’t wait for November.
