Pasture pointing

The guys remind me of the stampede from the movie Jumanji when I let them run in the pasture, with 13 year-old Sophie trailing behind like the rhinoceros.

While running in the pasture this last Friday, they kicked up a flock of partridge and when Doc went on point where the birds had been roosting, I whoa’d Mia and Elettra to honor.

On Saturday morning, Mia went on a nice point and a moment later three rooster Pheasants flushed. I was glad to see all the Spinone steady-to-wing until I released them.

A few minutes later, Doc crossed the ditch and went on point. Mia and Elettra couldn’t see him so I called them over; Elvis was running with the Labs. Dakota did come over to see what was going on however.

When Mia and Elettra came over and saw him on point, they did a very nice job of honoring – although Elettra was just as interested in the pictures I was taking. Maybe she was asking why I was taking pictures instead of getting my shotgun.

  1. LOL I am sure the brown dawgs also wonder why I take pictures of them instead of helping hubby to shoot the birds. In case I do not make it back here before (trying to get and stay caught up but you know)…have a Merry Christmas.
