Yes, those are the best. Got one last week while Whip was trotting along a field edge. He just spun sideways and LOCKED!

The sun that had just risen above the treeline opposite this end shown on him and it was a truly exceptional sight. I'd inde...

I had two Britts before my current setter. In my experience, the setter is the much better dog in every regard including house manners. My Britts would chew things up, get into garbage and bark crazy when someone pulled down the driveway. With my setter, I could leave a bag of garbage with food scra...

When I follow my Alpha 100 and find Whip's tail straight up on point, I read him. It's clear as a bell. If he makes the slightest move to look my way, the bird is either still some distance off, or was just there moments ago but it's not right there. When the bird is pinned 10ft away, not one hair m...
