    My daughter and her boyfriend were out with Opal for the grouse opener last fall and she snapped this photo. A couple of coveys hung around their fishing campsite all summer long and they had a heck of a time keeping the old dog from scooping a chick. Needless to say, she was ready to go opening day and it didn't take her long to score. Until Opal got sick she spent more time with them and my grandson than she did here at home. Tom was away working out of town when she passed on Thursday and he's taking it pretty hard. For whatever reason my daughter decided to save the fan on that grouse. I framed the photo for Tom for Christmas. She brought them both over today to see if I could make something for him for Father's Day. I threw this together after church. Turned out okay. What do you think?

    I am sure it will bring a tear to his eye for a few days, but in the long run, it will be a wonderful remembrance OHH ! Good job, looks very nice ! You appear to have a ‘good eye’ for putting things together. Hope you are starting to feel a bit better about things now. When my lab Bo left my life, I wish I would have had someone to do that for me !!

      I think it turned out more than just ok.

      Nice work indeed.

      You may have a Son in Law in your future. Sounds like you’d be good with that.

          I once had a very good short-haired pointer that came down with epilepsy, and had an occasional grand mal seizure while hunting in the field.
          For reasons I won't go into here, I found it necessary one day to euthanize him there in one of our pheasant covers in the back field.
          Now, whenever I look at that shotgun, all I remember is that it was the gun I used to put my buddy Schuyler to sleep.
          Your memorial brought back sad memories for me.

                      Well, not too sporty of late. He is suffering from laryngeal paralysis and the onset of neurological deterioration manifesting is loss of muscle in the hind end. He does ok when it’s cooler than 70F. He can still go a mile and a half when it’s cooler. It takes him a while to cool down due to the obstructed breathing. He pointed and flushed 4 grouse last week in E. WA! So he still has the “want to”! I doubt we’ll do the September early goose since it’s usually pretty warm. Sadly, I think this will be his last season in the field if he makes it that long. The little girl is in her prime at 7 yo. Happy Trails
