Two Gun has been on the move with a myriad of comings and goings these past several months. It seems some things are beginning to settle and things are getting to their new normal. First we have relocated, still in Spokane, and still on the esteemed South Hill, we are near Hamblen Park in a tastefully restored 1950's rancher with a larger yard. Paxson just celebrated his twelfth birthday yesterday. He continues to soldier on despite what father time has had to say. Also yesterday, we took Fowler and Powder to participate in Spokane Bird Dog Association's annual Chukar Challenge where 28 dogs ran in braces and had a maximum of 15 minutes to find and retrieve 2 birds. The 8 fastest times from Round 1 moved onto Round 2 where the final dogs battled it out for bragging rights and a big jar of pickles. Fowler qualified in 3rd and Powder qualified 6th, he finished 2nd and she ended up 5th in the final round! He won a jar of pickles and both won a small Buck Knife. We had a great time despite the terrible conditions and we couldn't be more proud of them both!
I'm just a guy suffering with an infatuation with gundogs since childhood. Fifty some years later this is what you get.
