Pointing, retrieving, tracking game – sure some versatile gun dogs can do all that. But Jess springer spaniel goes one step further. Watch as she feeds an orphaned lamb from a bottle.

I didn’t know English Pointers spoke Swedish. But this orange-and-white female does (hahaha). Check out these videos to see how much control this guy has over his dogs. He’s running up to four at once: Britta the Pointer plus a trio of Drahthaars. The relationship between them and the trainer is amazing to see. Find […]

What would you do to save your dog? Last January, my vet discovered a tumor on Puck’s lip. Further examination confirmed my fears: cancer. I also discovered that this cancer had spread to Puck’s lymph nodes. At eleven, Puck isn’t  young. But she doesn’t look her age, either. Other than a little more white in […]

Back before I got Puck, I had a thing for the less popular sporting breeds – Vizlas, Griffons, French Spaniels, etc. I also liked Clumber Spaniels. From what I’ve been told, Clumbers used to be popular in the UK. Today, there numbers are extremely low – according to The Working Clumber Spaniel Society, there are […]

Here’s an OK deal on a real nice over-under shotgun. These Orvis/Beretta Uplander are 686s with fancy wood, and most of the ones I see have 26″ bbls. This one has that extra 2″ so many guys want these days. Even though the gun is a bit pricey (and the online description is lousy), I […]

Here’s a double you rarely see. It’s a sxs 20ga Beretta 626 Onyx, and it’s up for auction now, with the listing ending tomorrow, 12/24/2013, @ 6:22:43 PM ET. From the info I’ve found, it looks like Beretta offered 20 gauge 626s from 1985-1987. I can’t imagine the company made many of them. 20ga Beretta […]

I don’t like to sell my shotguns, especially if it’s one I’ve had for a while. Once I’ve had a double for a few seasons, we’ve been places together and shared time. I remember slipping it out of its case at the beginning of hope-filled October days and breaking it down as I remember the […]
