Kirby on his 2nd field hunt. I keep him on a short check cord (1.5 ft rope staked into the ground) just incase he decides to break for safety reasons but he's done pretty well. Picked up 11 of 13 ducks on this hunt but couldn't quite figure out how to pick up a big ol' Canada goose yet.
Working with a teal and pointing a quail the following day. Gonna try to get her out on her first real hunt this week if the weather cooperates. She's healed up from her spay, and her adult teeth are almost all the way in. I think I'm gonna wait on force fetching her for a little bit, until after hunting season slows down.
I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in.
Got back from Montana yesterday, this trip is the reason I like the wirehair breeds. Nothing better than a true versatile in action. 70 degrees chasing sharptails on the first day, in the teens breaking ice for ducks on the last day. Ripped his leg open on a fence on day 3, didn't slow him down, a good reason to keep a good first aid kit on hand.
Jax on a retrieve tonight. We haven't gotten much this year so I get photos when I can. :) He is a three year old rescue so I don't know a thing about his parents. I got him far too young but he was headed to a bad place so I snatched him up. He is a timid dog who doesn't mind the water but the entry part he still gives me fits. Once we are in the water he does the retrieves. He also loves to pheasant hunt so all in all he is a good dog.
