Is it possible to have a Sporting breed that is good around birds?

    Hey I know a fair number of people who actually bring a couple birds or bumpers along when dove hunting, because with dove hunting there are a LOT of misses and their dogs get down right p***** off after enough misses in a row...lol

    LMFAO. I just snorted my drink. It hurt.

    That is Enzo, prefectly, btw.

    She didn't used to care about birds. Then she caught one. :p

    To be fair, it was probably a rather stupid bird, as she was running through a field and it sort of flew into her mouth. I think it was surprise that made her bite down on it, but it was a little thing and it died, and now she watches all birds very carefully, just in case another one wants to fly into her mouth.

    She'll be ready for it, lol

    I'm pretty sure that's what Willow is dreaming about when she sleep runs, barks, and full body twitches, stupid birds which fly into her mouth. Just like I'm sure Jacks dream of catching the goddamn Squirrels which mock them just outside of the sliding glass door.

    Omg, ^ that's hysterical! I know several birds which would fly in to walls, and buildings...so it's plausible that they could fly into her mouth, lmfao:rofl1:

    A guy I grew up with, and also worked with TJ, has 2 huskies, a husky mix puppy, a pit mix, and a beagle.
    They also have 4 geese, about 10 genies, and 2 chickens. None of their dogs mess the birds. And they have adopted all the dogs in the last 2 years except the Pix mix, and he is only 8 months old. The pittie was raised not to mess with the birds and the others were taught not to.
    Their white Husky will kind of stalk the geese, but she has never actually went after one.

    I want a genie...I'd give him a nice roomy lamp and everything.
