Sophie's first points on live birds!

Dad got some birds and I got to hunt real birds for the very first time. Here we go to the field.

Here birdy birdy birdy.

Where the heck is that birdy??

Ah ha....I smell you. Made me stop on a dime and stick my tail straight out. Pretty sporty point for my first live bird don't ya think.

and from the front side so you get all of my fine lines and angles.

I held the point for a few seconds then the bird moved and I pounced and flushed him out.

OK. Taking a break with mom while dad goes and plants another surprise for me.

and we're off again. Huntem' up, huntem' up.

and BAM!....another drop-dead gorgeous, stop on a dime point by smell only on a live bird.

I pointed a loooong time on this one. Dad even came up to flush the bird because I didn't even see it.

Holy quail batman....its a bird, it's a bird!

I just couldn't resist chasing this one for awhile. But I eventually came back to the old man. Man, he sure did have a big grin on his face.

I did good, didn't I!!!.....Cheese!!

Sophie and Ethan to the Dove Field to look for birds.

We didn't see any birds, but I did point and retrieve every pigeon carcass I ran across and brought back to dad.

Ethan...over here over here!

Well,  this bird field didn't pan out to well.  I did get to do alot of runnin and sniffin though.

Well, enough for one day.  Back to camp to snuggle up with Jack-Jack.  Nighty night folks.

Sophie in action.

It is battle of the toddlers....ding, ding!

Sophie at 11 weeks holding point. She held a point for 2 minutes this past week on a quail wing and held point on a dove sitting on the fence for over a minute.

An afternoon in the bird field.

The whole family goes out to the field to play and have fun.

Ready set.....GO!
They think I am slower with this checkcord on.  Huh, huh.  You just wait and see.
Here birdy, birdy, Heeeerreee birdy, birdy.
There you are........
and get ready for it.....POUNCE...("Daddy soooo doesn't like me to pounce, but I do anyways.")
Nah-nah-na-nah-nahhh, I pointed the birdwing, and your on a leash.  Nah-nah-na-nah-nah.

Baadd Chicken

Up the stairs, over the couch and sneak up on the sqwackin chicken.
Rar, rar, nom, nom, die chicken die.
He's down for the count...How did I do Dad?

A night in the bird field. Tryin to learn to hold a point.

I held it for a whole 5 seconds...then pounced.
Here are a few good points....
Then, no matter how many times I am told to hold it, I pounce anyways.
OK, if you aren't going to let me pounce, then I am taking my quail wing and going home!  Talk to the paw!


Daddy recliner.  Ahhhhh!
Wow, what a dog bed.
This kid ain't as good a snuggler as my litter-mates, but he will do.
