IMG_2367.jpgA days shooting. A bit squeaky when being a peg dog, but came into her own when I worked her as a walking gun. A couple of good retrieves. And then flight pond - three mallard down - two in bullrushes and one in the middle of the pond - she found and brought back all three. And yesterday morning tracked down a doe in the woods - shoulder / heart shot and still made 50 yds. But now too tired to get to her bed - fleece lined gunslip makes a comfy bed.

My HWV has done 6 days in the past 2 weeks, much more than usual. Half have been on the peg and retrieving, one stalking and a couple of walked up. Yesterday was on the North Yorks moors, a full day of walked up pheasant and woodcock around the borders of a grouse moor. I walked a long way, he obviously ran a lot further. He's now in a similar state, but very happy. Lots of sighs and grunts this evening as he dreams of pointing woodcock and retrieving teal.

Her father, mother and two brothers have been sweeping today, worked some very difficult slopes with heavy cover and returned with plenty

The keeper yesterday was running a WHV cross ESS. Awesome little dog. The Arnold Schwartzenegger of spaniels with a beard and the temperament and mannerisms of a WHV. Loved him.

What a lovely pic

Having a dog out with you makes the day even better, when they arrive home, they're home with you, mans best friend, there isn't another animal close to what pleasure they give.
