I like watching the dog shows but a hunting dog needs to win for me to be happy! A Golden Retriever winning suits me fine.
My bird dog will pick up his water bowl when empty and walk over and stand by the sink. He knows what I am thinking before I think it. He ain't quite show quality though. His physique is near perfect, however the dead, cats, racoons and even a coyote that he has under his belt makes him look like a barroom brawler....he's got a scar or two!
Over the years we have had several of those high dollar ankle biters. A couple of them met their demise while trying to piss on moving car tires, at least that's what it appeared happened to me. My bird dogs both know that they can't step off the curb or cross the drive and they adhere to it. Them little dogs never could get that through their heads. Another died while chewing on a power cord while mother trimmed the hedges. Yup it tripped the breaker so he got it good!
The last little dog was a Yorkie Poo named Crickett. He was the exception to the rule for little dogs. He was very smart and lived to a ripe old age of 14. I spoiled him rotten. He was put to rest 3 feet deep under the big oak behind the garage. Even though he only stayed there for a couple of weeks.....Roy was a 6 month old pup then and he dug Crickett up. Mother dearest walked in on that even about the time Roy started to roll in what was left of Crickett ..NOT GOOD......If I'm lyin I'm dyin!
I wonder what them judges would think if I entered Roy into one of them dog shows. Everytime he did something good I'd drag out a pheasant head from my pocket for him to gnaw on and when he did bad I'd push the button with a lightning bolt next to it and he'd jump in the air a little bit but quit doing whatever it was he was doing and listen for a command. I might get tossed........
