I've got two dogs now. They aren't hunting dogs at all just family pets. We like them a little smaller than the hunting dogs. You can see a picture of my female on the Photo brag board under ATH photo 6-24. They are both registered smooth fox terriers. Could probably train them to hunt fox like their ancestors but since I don't hunt them why should they?
Currently hunting with a female chessie (she will be three this fall). Prior to her, I hunted with an American Water Spaniel. That pigheaded SOB was probably the best dog I ever had the pleasure to hunt over......ripped my heart out when I had to have him put down in 2000.

I too, am "owned" by my dogs -- Cinnamon and Sage, my two Chesapeake Bay retrievers. Both are upland hunting machines! Although we do hunt waterfowl, their true "home" are grasslands and upland coverts. Just don't tell them they are duck dogs!!!
Well, though my dog isn't a hunting dog, I still love her with all my heart. She's a 4-pound cream pomeranian named Blondie-- yes, I know, very girly. But she's very loyal, and unlike most small dogs-- she rarely barks...what a blessing.
My best friend, is my Lemon English, swear the dog is almost human, you know that once in a lifetime dog, Huckelberry is it. Never is more than 5 feet from me, hunts and points like nothing you have ever seen, thinks hes human, spoiled rotten, sleeps with me, Grits is a Plantation Dog, found him in a peanut field in Ga. obviously abused and hunted everyday. Not much hair left on him. I've had him for 4 years and still is skiddish, but never a health, skin or bad habit problem with that dog, I should have 5 of him. The chocolate is a good duck dog, but heis mean towards my pointers. Took a bite out of my Lemon today in the pool, usually the ear area. I'm still pissed about that. Looking to breed Huck but what I really want is a liver GSH puppy. We are big hunters and spend the whole season usually on the dirt. Thats my story.
Nothing like the smell of Chanel and gunpowder in the morning
You know I have 2 dogs, neither of which hunt. 1- 240 lb rotty named Brutis. Actually he is the kids dog. Anywhere they go he goes. He is the greatest companion the kids could ever have. I will tell you that all the comments that I have herd about rottys are not true. My young kids can do what they want to brutis and he will do nothing but wag his stump.
My second dog- Hershey is a mix cayote and lab. Thats what the vet tells me anyway. I found her half dead in the woods from starvation. After nursing her for months, and a full recovery, she shadows me everywhere I go. She has a natural hunting instinct but will not kill. The best hunt she went on was when she brought home a Red Tailed Hawk, that she had not injured but wanted as a trophy.
Both dogts are spoiled rotten and they let me inside to feed them.
;D i have a 5 month of golden retriever . doesn't have impressive lines but she is working better than a 14 month old lab thats pro trained. figure that one out my friends lab has good blood lines. i plan on running Gizmo in the East TN Retriever Clubs puppy contest at this falls hunt test and running her in the hunt tests next spring. since i have to learn what is expected of the dog and myself as the trainer/handler in running of these tests to get her a title. Also what to give her a hunting season before we try running the hunt tests, so maybe she wont bring in a decoy instead of the bird. this is my first go at training a pup to do both ducks and upland birds but she sure seems to love her work.
nahc du gun contol means hitting your target GOD,GUNS,&ROCK'N'ROLL
Well here is finally a picture of my 7yr old Airedale. Sad thing is, its off to the vet's today as she pulled a muscle or something last night in her leg while out Groundhog hunting.
If that wasn't enough, when she came back limping, I had a "mental lapse" and closed the truck door on my hand. Other than one slightly swelled and sore knuckle, I'm fine. I just wish she was feeling better !!
