    Living in the wilds of northwest Iowa, I mostly hunt pheasant. I'm pretty much addicted to having Labs. Here's Deacon, my first Lab, who sadly passed on April 2. He's lounging after a training session.

    And here's his protege, Diesel, getting ready to go swimming last summer.

    This is Roscoe, my Jack Russell terrorist/Fox terrier mix. He is a deer tracking machine.

    He likes chasing deer best from his perch on the motorcycle.

    He also likes hunting up good deals on gunbroker, while watching soap operas on tv

    Do not let Roscoe hear any talk about him getting 'fixed' at the Vet's...

    Lovely thread. I'd love to own a dog, but we travel a little too much to properly care for one. We do have cats.

    This one we took in to help her heal (she was very sick) so she would not be put down. When she got well, she started killing bugs in the house, and we decided she could stay. She's a bug hunter.

    The other two don't hunt anything. They'll watch a bug though.

    No Black Mouth Curs? I don't have a picture of mine handy, but she has been the darnedest hunting dog I have ever had. Absolutely fearless. On our last rabbit hunt she got into it with a mountain lion over a wounded rabbit that I winged with my pistol. She had a 18" cut across her side to the ribs. She killed that mountain lion and rabbit. I had to sow her shut on the spot, thank goodness for combat gauze and expired sutures off ebay.

    Steve, I'm sorry to hear that you lost Daisy. Losing a dog is losing a best friend, and while you can have more dogs, forgetting your past hunting buddies will never happen.

    My first dog was named Daisy. She was a rabbit-hunting fool. I got her when I was 7 and my folks put her down when I was off at college. I had issues with my folks for decades over that. I still miss her.

    Had to put my Roscoe down

    His tumor returned with a vengeance, spawning more tumors. Fortunately, we had a chance to get him out for a few good days of hunting.

    If it's true that all good dogs go to Heaven, then surely ol' Roscoe has earned a place. Goodbye buddy. Hunt 'em up. :(

    Guys,

    I want to thank all of you for posting pics of your family members, your hunting pals and beloved friends. To those who've had to sadly part with their closest buddies, my heart aches right along side you. My wife and I had to put down 2 of our favorite family members within 5 months of each other, we've replaced both of them, but one never ever forgets the passings. One little dog, a Klee Kai female Snow Flake was put down about 8 years ago, this little dog was always at my side, always had to look before I stepped anywhere, 8 years and my heart aches like she was put down yesterday. Dogs can't speak, but God allows them to see into our very souls with their eyes, don't believe me? Just look at them and you'll see what I mean. Thanks again, take care of those puppies!

    Great looking dogs... not much patience for training.

    Rocky doing his Peter Lorre impression.

    Lily looking regal.

    Both chase squirrels and rabbits but lack focus. They steal things, dig holes and excel at howling. Cute dogs tho.

    Roscoe caught a raccoon outside the front door to the house last night. Caught that sucker flat-footed stealing pecans from our tree!

    I had no sooner opened the door before a black and white streak blew past me and instantly had a mouthful of raccoon butt.

    I don't know who was more surprised, me, the coon, or Roscoe? lol

    Sadly Harley died in August, I wish I had a pic of him on point or retrieving. Best dog I ever had and handsome too.

    This is Tasha, German Shepard of which finds all the deer we shoot. Just show her the blood trail, and say "Go Find" and she has never missed finding a downed deer. I love this faithfull companion of which she obeys every command I give her.

    Maybe not the best possible angle and the photo is phone quality, but here's my long-haired weimaraner, pointing a black grouse (looking directly at it, on the right under a small spruce 20ft away).

    Her predecessor, a gordon setter, was way too fast for action photos. I really miss him, though.

    Excuse the picture, it was taken with a cell phone. But today was the first time that Bruiser went hunting with me. He had a great time. We only saw one quail (and I missed it), but I'll get one for him next time. I was worried about hunting with him. He is not the best listener, but he stayed close and came back to me when I called him. I thought he'd be a little more gun shy when I shot, but he was right next to me for the two shots at the quail that I missed. He didn't even flinch, and it didn't bother him one bit.

    Unfortunately today was the last day of quail seaons. He will have to wait about 8 months to get his first quail in his mouth.

    Lucy, B&W German Shorthair. No formal training, but she does frequently show her breeding.

    He'd evidently seen something go under our side deck that he didn't think should be there.
    Going in, the corner of the house worked with him.
    Coming out.. Not so much.We were all gone for the day and don't know how long he was stuck.
    We had to remove two boards to get him out.
    That pic taken Nov 09.
    He's been gone a year and a half, and I still miss him every day.
