Re: Let’s talk about registration

Glad I'm a shorthair guy. There are lots of nice litters to choose from. I don't have to buy a pup without full registration. Breeders can choose to provide only limited registration papers until they are satisfied. And I can choose to find another litter. Pretty simple.

Re: Gun dog for a guy in early 60's

The older I get the more I appreciate a pointing breed. They cover a lot of ground. When they go on point I catch up. It just takes longer to catch up now. All the pointing breeds have lines that are easily 1000 yd dogs, Definitely not for the faint of heart. They also have lines that are 100 yd dog...

Re: dog's paws and ice water

One other thing. If you hunt in extreme weather you need to watch for hypothermia. Especially if it is wet. Don't get too far from some source of heat.

Re: What am I?

Head looks like gsp. Heads vary a bit with gsp's. Typical patch at the base of the tail also. A lot of the white gsp's have a really soft fine coat. Quite a bit of leg and neck. Looks young with not much chest yet. Most happy shorthairs don't spend much time with their tail hanging like that though....

We're talking about a fair amount of run in the dogs being mentioned. I personally think it's better to get a 300 yard dog than getting a 800 yard dog and reel them back in to 300. You and the dog will be much happier.
