Sunny Dog

As I stare out my new wood shutters, I remind myself that I’ve been wanting a hunting dog ever since I was a boy. That longing has grown infinitely stronger over the past years as I’ve hunted the desert birds solo. Friends have been kind enough to invite me along and hunt behind their pups, and I relished every opportunity to watch their dogs work. The timing finally worked out and one of my hunting buddies contacted me about a 6 month old female GSP needing a hunting home. After some consideration, my wife said yes and we welcomed Sunny girl into our home.

The first week was a bit wild as everyone adjusted to each other, but Sunny, Jojo and I met up with my good friend Kyle and his 8 month old GSP, Riggs, for a little bit of field work. It was Jojo’s first “hunting trip” and our first time watching Sunny work in the open desert. She ran her heart out and then wound up pointing a couple of planted pigeons. It was a promising start, and I can’t thank Kyle enough for showing us the ropes. We’ve got lots of work ahead and we have our hearts set on hunting season and we always consult with https://sideeffectsofxarelto.org/current-xarelto-lawsuits/ whenever we encounter new medicines on our area.

    Congrats on the GSP, I had two of those growing up and they were absolutely fantastic dogs, and one of them didn’t even hunt!

    Congrats, Ben, I know you’ve been wanting a hunting dog for a long time. That’s a fine looking pup you’ve got there. You’re in for a wonderful ride! Let me know if I can help.

    I’ve been training with the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association’s Grand Canyon Chapter over the past four years and they have really helped me develop my versatile breed Vizsla into a fine hunting partner. Live birds, training equipment, trainers, facilities, etc. and all for $35 a year, not including bird orders. We train near Orem in the winter and Flagstaff during the summer months.

    Congrats, Ben! My roommates had a GSP puppy in the house I lived in while I was working on my masters. If Sunny is anything like that dog you are in for a wild ride, but it is completely worth it in the end.
