    Fence... possibly I guess as there were some in the area.

    Stitches... none needed, I cleaned and treated it in the field and multiple times again at home and it is healing nicely.

    He did get into a serious fight with a winged rooster although I did not notice anything at that time and thought the scuffed areas looked kind of wide for spur damage.

    Use his head..... we have had that conversation many times in the past.

    I guess he was lucky it hit him between the eyes and on his hard head as it could have been worse. It turned out to be pretty superficial when it was all said and done. Of course it wasn't my head either.

    Good looking dog. Reminds me of my first wirehair.

    Thanks he has turned out to be a great dog thanks to help from some of our fellow MI-sportsman members and time well spent with NAVHDA.

    Amazing how tough these dogs are. He probably was wondering what all the fuss was about.

    Running with his nose to the ground most likely did it. lol
