After out little adventure to So Dak this winter I think Northslope is finally tired of finding, pointing, and retrieving his own birds. :?

He's going to Filmore tomorrow to pick up his new GWP(what else would a smart guy get) pup form a guy out of Vegas. :p

I've seen a picture of the little squirt and hes gonna be a tank! Hopefully he'll post some pics when he gets him home. :D

Good job buddy, rooster killin will never be the same again. 8)

Zim you are as guilty as Tex on this one. Posting all these cool road trips with dead birds and cool dogs. I am not stupid I spent 20 minutes with Tex's dogs and I knew that is what I wanted. It doesn't take a team of experts to see those dogs are the shiz. So any way I will post some pictures of the little beast when I get him. Oh ya Zim get busy raising up some chuckars, cause he is going to tear up a bunch of them! :D

In reallity I never do see him at work. He says that he gets there, loads up and leaves, all before sunrise. Me, I'm not much of a morning person. The only reason to get up before dawn is to go kill something.

That's right get up before sunrise so you can kill the day, and have the other half to play. :wink:

Well, It's a done deal.

He texted me yesterday while I was in Cal. and showed me a "post puke in the truck on the ride home" pic of the litle stinker. He's a snappy looking little boy. Can't wait to get him out on some birds.

Zim, we'll be coming over Saturday morning to get some pigions for a little puppy/pigion action. :p I' might bring the whirlwind Patches for a little bird action too.

Ya wanna train??? :D

I'll take this one...

Nose like a bloodhound, Retrieves like a lab, Swims like a chessie, busts the brush like a springer, points like a Pointer,(minus the tail) and is a wonderful family dog with lots of personality. To me, they are the perfect close to medium range dog that will hunt anything, anywhere. (I don't sound to bias do I? :eek: )

Thay don't range like pointers (like that's a bad thing) and they don't tolorate the heat as well as other breeds. (the ONLY drawback)

Some clowns say they dont have style... :roll: I say they have plenty of style! 8)

Thanks Tex! I would like to hunt over one. I have had a lot of GSP's over the years and loved them because of their temperment,especially with kids but absolutely love the sight of an English on point (love the tail). But I do not like a long ranging dog and am constantly trying to fight my dogs instinct to run. Sounds like this dog could be an option in the future. As far as style I would say that dog definately has style.

She looks all bad and hard-core but she's a big puss. :oops: Never been in a **** fight,(thank GOD!) and lets a 12 inch Jack Russell Terrier bully her around. :lol: You should see it, It's kinda funny when the Jack Russell beats her to a retrieve. Heidi will come over posturing like she's gonna open a can and Phantom will eat her face off. :twisted: She's a mean little bizatch!
