Re: New Beginnings

God bless you and what a beautiful pup. I got my first setter 4 years ago and it is a special breed. I wish I had only ever had setters.

Best of luck to all of you for years to come.

Re: how is that deadbirds sometimes seem invisible

My setter locked up solid on a dead bird this weekend. It's something he's never done so I'm still wondering if the point wasn't a live bird that was a runner.

Re: Help on pup

It really doesn't matter to me personally how much of a "deal" this pup is. A really well bred prospect with a pedigree that has an inherent value might cost you $500.
