That is one good looking setter.
You're doing right by the boy. Hunt with him while he's young and you won't have to hunt for him when he's older. I shot my first quail when I was about his age and that was 58 years ago. I still love it.
I can make 'em go! and I can make 'em whoa!
God makes 'em DO!
I carry the gun and blow the whistle.
