I'm in the 1 - 5 range. My goal is to have about 6 dogs within the next two to three years, so hopefully I'll gain more experience with different temperaments, etc. However, I'll stick with the best breed. =)
Ha! If you want the best of both worlds, you go with a Vizsla.
I'm at 1 still. I hope to be on 2 by this time next year. My goal is 4 over the next 4 - 8 years. Well, I say 4 and Danyelle says 2. I think eventually I'll get my way though. All I gotta do is show her puppies.
Something about a hard headed, bird crazy rocket, aka ep excites me. =) Maybe it’s just a phase? Not sure. I saw a wire in a mag. today. It looked like a big hairy gorilla. Maybe I could add one of those too? Might be too hot down here… Just thinking aloud. =)
Kevin when you breed her I would be interested in a pup, I really like your bitch. I like Earl's dog Cowboy too and heard that you might breed to him.... Is that right? Hope ya'll have a great Christmas.
Could you define trained? If you are talking full Borke that is one thing and if you mean started/hunting dogs that is something entirely different. With all of the opinion in dog training everyone's version of trained is different so this maybe tuff to answer.
Maurice I was thinking about breeding to cowboy. But he keeps getting sick for no reason and they can't figure out what is wrong with him. So I don't think he will be an option. But I will find a good stud dog for her. And thank you for your complement's on gunner that means a lot to me coming from you. If you want a pup I think we could work something out
I am in the 6-10 range. 2 shorthairs, a brit, a gordon, a english setter, 2 redbones, a black and tan and a walker and 1 lab..whew. And 1 toy fox terrier that I was trained by, and he was a "bleep" good squirrel dog.
That's about how I got Otis. We were at a trial and some people had a litter there. Pork Roll on top and Rail's Buck on bottom. I thought about it a bit and entered a pact with the people. Here's the line. Otis was so ugly that they didn't think they'd be able to sell him because everybody avoided him. so if they didn't sell him that weekend, they were putting him down. Told her with a straight face and walked away. Little latter here she come's with Otis! That was 15 yrs ago. He's still hanging on and she's gone!
