Sherman's First Hunt
DH took Sherman pheasant hunting this weekend. He was 8 mths old on the 26th, retrieves well and is rather obedient, but we were still unsure how he'd do on a hunt. FIL brought along his three pointers and DH and I wondered if Sherman would just try to play w/the pointers the whole time.
Our boy must have some field dog in his bloodlines b/c DH just called and Sherman retrieved his first bird. DH is thrilled that he's got a hunting buddy and I'm tickled pink that we just proved that FIL's theory that inside dogs can't be hunting dogs is dead wrong.
Since I've never had a dog hunt before--what should I expect when he gets home tomorrow? I'm guessing he's going to be rather worn out?
