daaaamn look at that lil badass. Awesome pics.quackadikt said:I hunt a field-bred Springer. She's about 45-ish lbs of pure hell on a bird. She has been the easiest, most biddable dog I have ever seen. She's broken skim ice and caught cripples in open water. She's not quite 3 and has picked up somewhere around 350-400 birds(ducks and doves). She's steady as a rock, although she does whine when things get slow, but I've learned to live with it. My only complaint with them is their coat. We have A LOT of cockleburs in New Mexico around water, and I have to leave her at home sometimes becuase they're so bad in some places I hunt.
Never seen a dog with a nose like hers, love her size, and a Springer will keep you laughing. I love them, just wish they had a coat more like a labs. I'm actually putting out some feelers for a lab or chessie so that I'll be able to hunt with a dog even when the cockleburs are awful.
