Where I used to keep my horse we'd get inundated with pheasants when it was shooting season. They must have known that it was safe with the horses as people couldn't shoot there.
Are you sure that your Avatar is you, and not your grandchild ?!
This is my Bella - then and now. Found her dumped at the road side back in 2008 - just a 5 month old pup! Took to local dog pound, she wasn't claimed & we were lucky to be able to adopt her. She is now 12 yrs old and just brilliant. Mind you at 40kg she is big even for a german shepherd but has a lovely nature.
Agree - if I meet Mort and Joe on their way to the field we don't chat - if they stop Joe cries to keep going. If they are on their way home we get a quick chat.This is my dog, pointer Joe. I have had an English Pointer before, but this one is very energetic. He does not do slow.
