It may have been rainy yesterday, but that didn't stop our fun. We joined our friend Rich and his dog, Strange, for an afternoon of bird hunting. Rich is starting up a bird range, so we took a test drive out there for some bird hunting. It's ideal for bird training because we planted some farm raised pheasants for the dogs to hunt. Now, it may not sound entirely sporting to plant the birds you are planning to shoot. Let me just say, it's a lot harder to refind the birds, as evidenced by only coming home with 3 of the 7 birds we planted.
Schatzi proved to be the star of the show, tracking and flushing more birds than any other dog. As a dog who hates to pee in the rain, abhors baths, and would rather die than go swimming, I have to say this is the happiest I've ever seen her being so wet.
