    That's not nice Sharon. Was raised on Brits back than they were little bigger than cats. Lost my taste for them when they got bigger than shorthairs. Hence why though love my Stella really would like to down size the next generation. Really want to see if there are other hunters out there that would rather pick the runt of the litter.

    Oooh Sharon
    I remember you being at a field trial at Hullet 3 years ago when my Britt spanked a few Setters in the gundog class. A well bred Britt will hold its own in our Eastern covers no problem.
    The reason I'm going with a Setter this time is the stars just lined up with this pup I'm getting. I wanted a started female and a local Pro trainer I know had a litter on the ground with great breeding. This pup was hunted quite a bit on grouse and woodcock and shows promise. She's the runt of the litter but that means nothing. I saw her work on planted quail and Chuckars and this little girl has the right stuff. She will be coming home in January after her first heat cycle as my Britt is intact and I don't want to spay until she has had 2 cycles. Then again I'm not completely writing off the idea of having a litter from her. We have a fabulous male in mind if she turns out to be what we think she will be.
    As for smaller sized dogs, absolutely. No need for a ridge running cheetah in my world. Smaller ones take less room on the couch and bed

    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    I hope you know I was kidding Terry. I forgot humor doesn't come across very well on the internet. I apologize.

    (I don't remember your Brittany ever beating a setter.

    I am sure he knows, we all do. It's all good fun.
    WRT size - FNF how small do you want to go? What size is Stella?

    Stella is 22" at the shoulder. To my eye she is huge so smaller than her would be the goal.

    When you cut your teeth on these guys



    (sorry about the quality its a pic of a pic)

    Hard to get use to anything bigger.

    Are you getting your pup from Spencer, as I think you might be(I think I read something about that in another thread). If so congratulations, great dog. I hunted over her up north at the grouse camp with them. They were exposed to a lot of birds, and we dropped quite a few over her. I was there for a few days with my BF who was also getting trained by Spencer, All I can say is he isquite the dedicated trainer, I am so happy I went to him. I think Sharon had some influence with me picking him. But then again when are her words not wise!!!
