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