"I smell a bird somewhere..."

My friend Daniel's new pup Bailey:

Daniel is blessed or cursed with pointers, falcons, double guns, good books, and even Spanish pouters, lives in wine country, hunts in Montana.

"This would be a man who has ruined his life for sport..."-- Tom McGuane of Russ Chatham, on his announcing he was going duck hunting AND trout fishing...

I love that line by McGuane, but I always feel a bit uncomfortable with it. Perhaps Tom would accept a slight edit...

"This would be a man who has LIVED his life for sport..." Same thing.

Those of us addicted to bird dogs may wonder how you could fail to have as many as you can.

If I only had the balls to ruin my life for sport. As it is, I feel like a sandpiper running right to the edge of the water, then beating a hasty retreat.

Mmmmmm. Lives in wine country and hunts in Montana. That sounds pretty nice, too. (Though, yeah, that pup is ADORABLE.)

A bit of topic but if you haven't seen this news item on the BBC take a look.
