If I do this right...and that is a long shot.
First one is right after we got Blue...too bad the idiot taking the picture (me) wasn't a better shot...would have been nice to have her whole body in the picture.
Second one - if you look directly up from Blue's neck, you can actually see the pheasant (white ring on neck stands out)
Third one - she is a serious hunter! No laughing at the bandanna - it was some added protection as she was healing from a couple staples on her chest.
Fourth one - Mac...nice honor for Blue (who you can barely see in the bush).
Last one - Mac on point. He is really coming into his own now...at first we thought he was gun shy, but now we realize he just becomes overwhelmed if there were too many other dominant dogs around.
He was amazing this last season. They both just turned five on May 10th.
I too had trouble choosing just a few point pics...
I am really enjoying this thread!! I just want to click the "Like" button on every picture! Found an older one of Sophie pointing.... and couldn't resist to share another one of Pacsirta pointing that her breeder sent me Sorry if I get carried away ;D

Had some fun today with Finn. We've been working on water confidence and water retrieval slowly since late April, and today we had some bold entries and and retrieves from shore. Prior to this I had been in the water with him, but he was more than ready to put some lessons together.
Is anyone using any of the goggles for dogs currently on the market?
Yesterday I had an incident with Finn, when both of his eyes got inflamed and were swollen. His eyes ere red and puffy, swollen shut, and the Nictitating Membrane was covering half of his each eye.
I irrigated each of the eyes...
I decided to post a pic of Finn working a quail. This is a nice point from an 8 month old on free released birds. Not planted.
We'd been working on released quail for most of May, and Finn really started to understand "the game".
He's got a bird under that scrub to the left.
I've been working with Finn the past 6 weeks or so, on raised quail, and he's been doing excellent with them.
I release them in an area that they have the ability to survive in, that allows me to work the same birds for a couple of weeks in a more "natural" manner, until the predators, or...
