No Pheasants… No Problem!

It’s July. Almost as far from pheasant season as you can get. But don’t tell that to Indie, my Llewellin Setter. For her, this is the summer hunting season. And while she may not be pointing pheasants and quail in the CRP fields, she is busy striking stylish points on doves at the feeder, robins on our daily walks, and maybe her favorite off-season game of all… houseflies on the porch.

I know it sound silly, but she loves it. And while I’m hesitant to admit it, seeing those points gets my heart beating a little bit faster too.  Yep, it’s safe to say that in the dog days of summer, there’s nothing better than a good bird dog on a solid point… even if it’s on a fly.
