A lot of hunting dogs find birds, point, and retrieve. Keep trails clear of debris for other hunters? This is my pointer, Sky, last fall at 8 months old.

My pointer, Sky, loves chewing up shoes and slippers. Since October, she has chewed, chomped, and torn her way through 4 pairs. Now when I catch her doing it, this is her reaction. This shows she has a conscious and she knows that if she’s super cute, no one can get mad at her.
Sky and I headed up to northern NH on Saturday to say “hello” to Lexi and Craig Doherty. Craig runs Wild Apple Kennel, and this is the second season he has worked with Lexi. Lexi left for training camp at the end of June, and this was the first time the Sky has seen her since […]
You hear all sorts of “truths” about Pointers: They’re not personable; they make lousy house dogs; they don’t retrieve (not naturally, anyway). Sky is my third pointer, and just like my first two, she has shown me that all these “truths” are total BS. Watch this video to see her dispel the third.

Lexi and I headed down to Cape Cod on Sat to check out the Setter Club of New England’s spring field trial. I entered Lexi in two stakes: the Amateur Derby and Gundog. She took 3rd in both. Here are some pics from the day.
Warmer weather has come early to New England, and Lexi and I have been out taking advantage of it. Here are some shots from the weekend.

If you’re into bird dogs, you should make time to watch the whole thing. And if you don’t know much about Pointers, this short video is a nice introduction to the breed. It also features […]
Lexi and I made it down to Addieville East Game Farm yesterday to chase some chukars along with some friends of this sight. Lexi had never seen a chukar. She’s hasn’t done much hunting in fields, either. So I was a little worried about how she would handle things. She bumped two, but overall, she handled […]
