Yup, any animal that can live that well down at my ranch can have the vote....besides, I didn't see Jack Russells on the list..... ;D
Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines "Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day; give him a religion................ and he'll starve to death while praying for a fish."
Ok... if you're going to be satyrical, you have to add my favorite show breeds, i.e. Bulldogs and Wolfhounds. Why did you leave out GWPs??? PLUS, I think there may be something Freudian about your inclussion of the goat
OK!! I've read all i can read! I'm about half crazed with this dog thing! There are entirely to many opinions out there!! I have narrowed it down to a GSP, Brittany, Springer or a Lab. I'm going to buy the first one available that comes out of fair to good hunting stock. Let the chips fall where they may!!
Hey Bob can I add to the confusion (more for my own entertainment ;D) Have you cross referranced the type of dog with the type of bird and quarry you hope to hunt. Dogs that cover a lot of field tend to do better under falcons than broad wing and short wings as they tend to take point at slips that are too far away for those flying from the fist.
Alex, most of the information on what birds fly well over what dogs is very idiosyncratic. I haven't heard the same story twice. If there is something in writing, i haven't found it. The falconry dog website has more opinions in it than a political convention. It seems to me that it's all a matter of the bond you make with your dog, and your abilities as a trainer.
