Owner: Irvin Moran, Green Bay, Virginia
Dog: Dixie, German shorthaired pointer
Puppy – 2012: Showing birdiness and style at 6 weeks of age. My wife and I selected her from seven females in the litter. We could have closed our eyes and picked a puppy from this litter, but our eyes and dreams went with Dixie.
Owner: Doug Ziegler, Champlin, Minnesota
Dog: Sovereign’s Cu Later Copper, Brittany
Puppy – 2015: Introduction to birds at a club hunt test in September 2015. Given a recovered quail to play with, 3-month-old Copper proudly held it and proved he was a real bird dog.
Adult – 2017: During a training session in January, Copper retrieves a quail. Note he has the same look as he did at 3 months of age.
