Dog on Point! (Hunting Dog Pictures)

The best laid plans of mice and men...

Well, I was going to post some of the coolest photos of MLH & our friends Steve & Mr. Fussell while they were installing Bob and Cherie’s oven, but, alas, that isn’t happening now. I was inserting the disk, somehow mis-seated it, and when the drawer closed, the cd slotted inbetween the disk tray and the metal housing that holds the DVD/Rewrite.

Lovely - another Janie-disaster for my IT guys. Well, hey, at least, with me, they have great job security.

Here are some cool pix of my shooting buddy Steve and his dog Cash hunting yesterday morning. I had to stay right with the hunter while he was going so I could get these close-ups. They turned out pretty good!

Here, Steve is signaling to Cash - saying "I got ya, buddy, I see you're on point. Hold."

And, Cash up close, on point.
Bird is flushed, shot, and Cash goes after it.

And Cash, retrieving bird.

Cash delivers the bird to hand.Well, folks, that's your Labor Day weekend hunting diary for this year!

Oh, you mean there's actual killing involved? I thought you were just shooting clay pigeons. ;-)

Great shots!

I love to watch a bird dog in action...we used to raise pointers.

Smart, smart dogs. Great photo shots, Janie!

Bob said...

You want the pictures you took with my camera?

Rach said...

The dog is cute - Hunting dogs probably aren't supposed to be cute but regardless...cute!

Janie said...

Gwynne - you know, we do that, too!Thanks!

Pattie - thanks, so much!

Bob - I'm good. I think I'll recover these, I mostly wanted them for you & Cherie.

Sandy - it is neat, isn't it?

Rach - no, they're cute - they're just like regular dogs - but they have a job. Cash is too cute! He's got a funky little smile.

I don't think I'll ever be able to see a picture of your hubs in a field without thinking of him in a field, balanced on a camp pot.

Nice pics. It's a joy to watch a good dog work.

Janie said...

Foo - I know, huh? That is a funny story.

Poet - thanks! Steve (my hunting friend) thought they were awesome. Due to timing conflicts, y'all all got to see them before he did. He was well pleased.
