They have great personalities and most enjoyable to hang with away from the field. One of the only breeds that can go from hunting to trialing, then home....with a different personality for each. To not love the gsp, is to never had the pleasure of owning 2.
After my 1st gsp, the 2nd was a no brainer. I can't wait for number 3 in the fall. It should be entertaining watching all 3 mixing it up.

Broke the ice getting there, had to chase the pheasant across the ice, had to swim several times, then back on frozen ice. Yep, a good GSP will do a little water work.
Only reason I own shorthairs...uncle had 30 pointers, granddad had ONE GSP. 1960, trial lineage, John Merrell bred, dog could outhunt any of the EPs. Cal was a great dog. First hunting dog I had. Will never own anything but a shorthair.
Sorry everyone but, we are talking about gundogs here.
I chose Brittanys because of their hunting ability. Sure, trials are fun but, I have seen too many trial dogs that make hunting unworthwhile. Too many big running dogs refuse to hunt within gun range. My Britts know when I am on a horse and when I am walking.
I don't know if it can be done but you could send Grant a private message and see if he can change your vote for you. There must be at least three or four Musterlander owners that are active on this site but the poll has zero votes registered.

She's got it all, awesome in the field, water and home. NAVHDA UT Prize I, VHDF AHAE 177 Points. Loves nothing more than to be out hunting pheasants here in South Dakota.
Hi Dennmore--I made sure I got my vote in right spot!
