After a lot of research on the breed I came to the decision to get a smooth coat pudelpointer. After even more research on breeders then a good wait, we finally brought her home two weeks ago.

In the rent car on the way back to the airport.



I can't believe how good she did in a little soft sided carrier. After waiting an hour in the check in line then another getting through security I knew there would be trouble. She made it, then made the whole flight from Florida.

A couple of days ago I got out some panhandle bob wings and an old fishin' pole. I've read a bit about this breed charging in and failing to point, so I'd rather deal with sight instead of scent pointing later on. She is already using her nose a lot and it's cool to see such a little one getting birdy. Took her about a minute to start pointing.



Then something happened that I never expected. It turned into a family affair. The bird is just outside the bottom of this pic. roflmao



I think the cat might be the birdiest animal in the house.

Great looking pup. What Breeder did you get her from?

Donít worry about the sight pointing. I think the wing on a string encouraging only sight pointing is a myth. There are a lot of dogs that could use a lesson on sight pointing. Iíve seen some awesome dogs bust coveys when they see birds running in front of them when they should creep up and hold em or stay where there at. But I like a dog to creep on moving bird.

Thanks! I got her from Pan American (Leo Perez) in Miami. Good guy.

I agree, Iíve always used the wing on a string and never have had it backfire.

Iím pretty sure sheís part honey badger. Tuff as nails and absolutely fearless. I took her over to a friendís house last weekend to get some exposure to another dog that is more her speed, a 6 month old lab that will be her future hunting buddy. Luckily he is very easy going and took it easy on her. They had a blast for two hours straight. She slept like a log that night!

Larry, good luck with the pup! I hunt a Pudelpointer too. Not a lot of them around these parts. I hope yours works out as well as mine has. The versatility of the breed brings a lot to the field. Here is a pic of mine pointing a planted pigeon when he was 7 weeks old.

Hope this isn't a dumb question but, is it just the pictures or do PPs have some pups with short pointer type coats and others with coats like a poodle?. Both are sure cute.

Thank ya! Versatility is why I was so interested. How old is your pup now? I might have some questions for ya...

Not dumb at all, you're right. Smoky and I have smooth coat variations, but there are a lot of them that are wire haired like this one.
