>There are a lot of great posts out there in Blogger Land I’d like to share with you. The first is Dale’s from LoBank (CLICK HERE). Dale is writing a series on Great Dogs and Good Men…I’m really enjoying his stories! His latest post is of interest for any Elhew Pointer Fan!
Andy and Walter have made wonderful contributions on Upland Equations (CLICK HERE)…Walter has written about Pride’s Progress, and we’re both really excited to meet up in a few weeks for a sage grouse hunt here in Colorado! Andy’s post is about a great GSP named Upland Rooster…Rooty was a bird dog! Great posts by both!
Brad at For Love of Dogs and Birds (CLICK HERE) has written recently about puppies…there’s nothing better than puppy breath! Great site to visit!
Andrew from the Regal Vizsla (CLICK HERE) finally got his VIZSLAMOBILE! Now his bird dogs will be traveling in STYLE! Andrew has a fabulous blog!
Pete Houser from Living with Birddogs (CLICK HERE) posted a delicious hunters’ feast! I can’t wait to try out his Chile Verde recipe! Pete, thanks for sharing!
Another great post can be found at The Black & Tan Bombshell (CLICK HERE)about proper conditioning of your canine partner before hunting them! I agree that swimming is an excellent way to condition a dog…and it’s good for those arthritic dogs too!
On the home front…a bit of discouraging news! My Elhew pointer (Gep) had a gland on her tail that grew enormous! It’s a condition I’ve only seen a handful of times in my career…the condition is called Hyperplasia of the gland of the tail! I’ve only seen this condition in non-castrated male dogs (very rarely) and it usually regresses with castration! I removed the gland 18 months ago, but it came back with a vengeance! I removed Gep’s tail on Monday…it’s been a hard thing for me to swallow!
Gep is recovering well…in fact, she seems no worse for wear! I think that I’m taking it much harder! She’ll have to be on the injured reserve list opening weekend of grouse season…but watch out sage grouse!
