You can't blame a bird dog

You can't blame a bird dog

Postby Sharon » Thu May 31, 2018 5:05 pm

My setter and I often sit on the porch together enjoying a coffee. Yesterday a blue winged teal + 15 chicks walked by the porch . The setter was gone! The duck flew low down the highway with the setter chasing. Fortunately the cars stopped and and a pedestrian grabbed the dog. Could have easily had a dead dog to pick up.

(Mom returned and after an hour and a half we were able to net Mom and the 15 chicks and take them to a nearby pond. )

Sharon, surely you meant the JRT did that, not your setter :)

We all know the setter would have staunchly pointed and stayed put for a stop to flush until released as Mom Duck flew off :D


(so glad to know that the whole escapade ended well, whichever dog was naughty).

Winston Churchill (who knew) said that "Nothing in life is so exhilarating as to be shot at without result." Right behind that, though, you'd have to rank thinking your dog may be a goner and then finding he isn't.

LOL No not the JRT. I'd never let the JRT sit out with me off leash. That setter probably never saw a duck before so said, "What the heck is that??!"

Learned my lesson though. She sat out with me today, leashed to her chair. :)

Reminds me of a jolt my old Tiah did me years ago. Skunk was walking out the drive way and Tiah spotted it. Took off and the skunk took off best it could. No match for Tiah, she was really fast! About the time she caught up, the skunk stopped and lifted it's tail. Tieh landed next to the think spun around and left all in one motion. She headed straight for the house and got behing the couch. Had a terrible time for a few days!
