Well the wife came home and said she had seen the cutist Smooth choclate mini dachshund and I could get the kids one if I wanted. So after a bit of research which included this site sent her to see a standard wire Teckel pup which needless to say she came home with. Ive had a working Springer and lab and done a fair bit of rough shooting +25/06 for deer&fox. but let my fac & cert go some time back. hope to get this pup tracking and maybe get another gun dog next year and get back into it.
