Default Saw a working GSP this weekend

Hubby and I decided to hike up a nearby mountain on Sunday. It was a clear, cold autumn day and perfect for a hike.

Partway up the mountain we saw a hunter wearing a dayglo orange vest and a brown dog also wearing an orange vest and what sounded like a cowbell. Even from a distance I recognized the breed, it was a GSP! We called to each other and made sure our dogs were friendly and seince they were, we let them romp a little. Turns out the guy was hunting grouse and his GSP was doing exactly what they were bred to do. Zircon forgot his manners briefly (he -um - found the GSP attractive) and she gave him what-for. He got the message, also since I chewed him out for it.

All in all it was a nice encounter though on a fall day.

That must be nice seeing a dog do what it was bred for, I would of loved to see that, Zircon must of had a shock though when she told him off.
