I'll be at that tree every year for the opener that's the spot she pointed my banded woodcock forever the holy grailVery sorry for your loss Brien. I know it's weird but I think about that day almost every time I pet my 5 year old bird dog thinking that it will better prepare me for the day, but I know it won't. Nothing does. Even when they live to old age, they're never with us long enough. Just know you gave her the best life, and she returned the favor with the memories and love--and nothing can take those things away, they live on forever that way.
She was a great all around bird dog and my sons best bud hope our little pointer can live up to her high standardsThanks Brien. From your postings on here she looked like a hell of a grouse dog and a very good girl. My condolences. Happy new year to you as well!
