Life lessons

Shine thinking she can chase down a pheasant, and learning it's not going to happen.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.

It's still fun to try! Charlie hasn't caught a rabbit, but he still loves to chase them. Or maybe he's just a slow learner. <G>

She has a lot of chase in her. But its a lesson she needs to learn. As a birddog she has to figure out, she can't get the bird without me.

One that she held point, and was shot over her today.
Her first rooster.

Ruby has just this year realised that she can't run down a hare, rabbits are no problem, but hares are just too fast so I think she's quite relieved when I blow the stop whistle, (hare coursing with dogs is illegal in UK)

These aren't wild. They are just unshot birds from a earlier tower shoot. Pheasant are just stronger fliers than some of your other birds.

That and they need to flush, if she tries to crowd them by taking that extra step.

Where are you guys shooting at? This the place down in Ennis?

Our 7month old is off at bird camp for three months. Been looking for some options for off season work.

Excited to get him back come May.
