    Hard to believe but today my buddy Jake aka black dog turns 6 years old. Hopefully we've got a lot more seasons of chasing birds ahead of us, he's certainly not slowing down any. It's been quite a ride so far. Not sure why the one picture is rotated...

    Time sure flies when having fun. No thoughts of slowing down he should be at the peak of his game. Soon should thinking of bring up a junior

    Happy Birthday Jake! From what I have heard you don't need a lot of encouragement to party!

    Glad things turned out so well for you Nick. Buy that setter.

    LOL Jake has a LOT of slowing down to do before we add a third dog to the household. I do have the itch pretty bad though. Been looking at setters and DDs. I love the classic look of a setter but just wonder if I'd be better served by a DD since I do a fair amount of waterfowl as well.

    Life is a sequence of pickup trucks and dogs.
    My lab turns 7 this year. Many more birds to find.

    Setters & waterfowl are two things that are rarely mentioned together. Gotta say, Setters are great “indoor” dogs. Mine definitely has an off switch, in fact by 9:00 pm if nobody is in bed she just goes by herself.
    I’m suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    Definitely. Grouse is my biggest passion even though I duck/ goose hunt just as much if not more. And although I do love labs I do not find them stylish when upland hunting. I think it will be tough to go from watching a close working stylish spaniel to anything else but I know a pointing dog of some sort probably makes the most sense with low bird numbers here in the south. A versatile dog is the ticket I think. A drahthaar seems to check all the boxes. That being said I'm probably still 2 years out so I'll probably change my mind 10 more times.
