It's Wed. again...just thinking

It is supposed to be really nice if a bit cool this afternoon. Should be nice for our walk/run. As I was watching Gunner point a little bird in the bushes, I was thinking. It was just a few short months ago that he started pointing stuff. Having never had a pointing dog at first I thought that he has something wrong with his front leg. I know it sounds dumb now but at the time after losing a dog to cancer and being so careful to get a healthy puppy. I was worried, so I mentioned to to my Hubby. He has had exposure to bird dogs, but he was sweet about it and asked when he was doing it and were there any birds or things around..well, yes there were usually some sort of bird close by. Ah Ha..then and there I got it. As he got a bit older and pointed more I loved to see him point and be intense on the bird. So now we are training to me actually because he is hard wired to do so. It is amazing how things come to be. Now we are all about birds and Hunter orange. Like I said it is going to be a nice day.
We just got back from our socialization time. Our good friend Sonie and her Mollie couldn't make it so we went by ourselves. Gunner met a Momma Pug and her 10 week old baby. He was great and very gentle with them. They look so little next to him. He even let the pugs owners pet him. They said he was very velvety. It was sunny and nice. He was great about the bikes and runners. What a good boy.


  1. We hope you can get a photo of Gunner pointing - that would be so cool to say. Sorry to say it, but if we see a bird, we don't bother to point - we just pull Mom and try to get it.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder,and Ciara

  2. We would love to see a picture of Gunner pointing at a bird!! That is cool!! I just run after it, I never point. I try and sneak up on them sometimes too but apparently I'm not a bird dog because I don't point and I never catch them either. I just chase them!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  3. Fur sure!

    We have to see a pointing pikh!
