Pretty dog Still you should bring her out to eastern Montana for huns and sharptail!
Yeah, I'd love to. Something tells me she would like it out there in the open looking for them, instead of the swamp and brush around here looking for ruffed grouse! Maybe it's the fact that I can't get her to stick close!

shes probably bred to cover ground just like my springer,ever since he was a pup if you let him run he would stay about 30-40 feet out in front of me and cast back and forth with his nose on the ground,thats good breeding!I know people with labs that work hard to train thier dogs to hunt pheasents and cut like that and then brag about how well thier dogs "cut" or "work" lol all i have to do is say getdabird and hes off,the value of breeding in a bird dog is often overlooked these days in favor of new training meathods and breed preference,pay more and get a dog bred to hunt!

I must admit, she is not purebred, but the mother was. We got her from a local shelter. I just didn't have the money at the time to spend on a bred dog. They think the father was a chocolate lab. I can see she has two different colors of brown, one liver, like shorthairs, and a couple patches of lighter "chocolate" brown. Other than that she is ALL shorthair. Nonstop, high-energy, and she has a good nose, but she is raw since I am not much of a trainer. We only have ruffed grouse and a few woodcock for gamebirds here, and the grouse have been WAY down, even though the bottom of the cycle was supposed to be five years ago! We just go out and have fun most times.
