    If you're going to hunt him/her, find a local field trial training group. We now have two springers and you don't need to field trial to train. Our group has provided invaluable advice and assistance.

    Good for you, best buddy I ever had and I miss him so bad.

    Gentle soul and never screwed up never once right to the end of his 14yrs.

    I wish you many many days of happy hunting and companionship.
    I love bird dogs ( I have five) and a German Shepherd, that's a sweetheart unless you try to come in my yard.

    Made me bust out crying, looks so much like the guy I had to put down just over a week ago. He made 14yrs.

    He is a real beauty, love that boy it will be returned umpty 1000 times.

    Very impressed with Otis so far... The breeder John Hunter hunts all kinds waterfowl and upland birds with his springers and they do a fine job raising them.
    They don't have a big kennel just a loving family that's very passionate about their dogs and the outdoors.
    I couldn't be happier right now!

    Hey Tom, beautiful little guy! If you want a place to run Otis, bring him down! I didn't know you raced pigeons. There is another guy near Sackets gun club that brings his here to release for short warm up flights. Feel free to do the same.

    Thanks Bob!!..
    I was into racing pigeons before I became addicted to shotguns and clay targets.

    See you next weekend!

    Handsome pup! Had my springer put down at 14, he lost control of his rear legs, broke my heart. Looks like the bonding is going well; he'll have you trained in no time. Thanks for bringing back memories. Enjoy your new hunting partner!
