    Of course, you must realize that if you had worked the pup into the Ruger essay(and pic) you would have won, Right?

    Don't remind me... :bang:

    **PUPdate!** - April 28, 2012

    He finally came home yesterday at 8 weeks old. His name is Bolt. Talk about a wonderfully spoiled dog (and I mean that in the best way possible). I can't imagine a more caring breeder. The pup got to play with caged quail a few days before he was flown in - on a private jet to a private airport - in San Diego where we met her and her husband, and received the puppy. They were incredibly nice people and I can't imagine a more positive dog buying experience. My daughter is in love with this puppy and it looks like I have a REALLY good hunting dog. I had him stalking and pointing a pheasant wing within 20 minutes of training him on a fishing rod/line setup. He are some clips and pics of him in action. A video of him hunting the pheasant wing is in the following post since you can only include one per post.

    Yes, they do! My buddy and I were just talking about how you can take your chances on any old breeder or you can pay a few buck more and go with proven, champion stock. We both di the latter and it worked out nicely so far. Of course, nothing in life is a garauntee. Even the best parents can still turn out a dud, but you improve your chances of getting a winner by looking for a strong pedigree.

    There's no such thing as having too much ammo, unless you're on fire or trying to swim!

    She loves him a bunch. She was teaching him how to "dance" on his hind legs with her today. He didn't seem to mind one bit.
