After a huge disappointment in my last dog from another breeder, I’ve found my guy! RADAR is from Caesar and Josie and man I couldn’t be happier with his progress. He’s wonderful in the home and at 6 months he’s showing signs of being a great hunter. He retrieves to hand, he’s healing, he’s pointing game, and he has a ton of drive in the field. I can’t wait to hunt him next season Thanks Idaho shorthairs!
Haven’t posted an update in awhile so we figured we would share some exciting news. Luna won first place this past weekend in a US Complete Amateur Gun Dog Stake. There were dogs competing from several states. Luna had three clean finds (steady through the shot) and a nice back to win. I have received more compliments on Luna than you can imagine. The pro trainer I train with said “He doesn’t recall seeing a more athletic dog than Luna, to see her working in the field is really something special”. Looking forward to more field trials and tests in the near future. As high powered as she is in the field, Luna is also the best snuggle partner on the couch.. We will keep you posted as I know Luna’s resume will be growing.
I grabbed hold of her and removed bundles of quills as quickly as possible to prevent her from driving any of them any deeper.
Is wasn’t until after I had removed dozens of quills from her nose, muzzle, tongue, mount & gums, and chin that I paused to snap a couple of pictures. She went into that porcupine with her mouth wide open and had the damage to prove it. No other dogs suffered the same fate and we avoided Kota’s loop completely on our way out
