hunting or not

If I could chose only one for everything I need in life?  A pure Old Southern White English Bulldog. An old and rare breed almost extinct because they were the base breed used for the creation of more common dogs like the American Pitbull Terrier, American Bulldog, Boxer, and deformed into the English Bulldog.  Mostly breeders in the backwoods deep south are the only ones still keeping this amazing work dog alive.

Grouse in Wisconsin.  Have owned Brits, Gsp, Gwp, and Gordons.  If I had to get another dog it would be a field Gordon Setter.  They don't mature as fast as the continental breeds,  but they  can do anything any of the pointing breeds do.  Pain in the butt cleaning them up after a hunt , but I believe worth it.

Though here first love is by far and away...those rascally long tails!

So distracted by the m in fact, that even in the duck blind, when she hears one cackle it is on! I could hardly get her to focus on the ducks! She kept going to the door every time he made a sound

My first love is pheasant

My first love is pheasant hunting with my English cocker. But I have to admit for versatility including waterfowl I'd want a lab. But those days in the field when the ecs is staying tight, watching him flush, me occasionally knocking it down, and then watching the dog dig out a tough find and retrieve......as the commercial says....priceless.

 Seldom hear of someone hunting a cocker. You got a photo of it? They are bigger than the American Cocker aren't they?
