What's your favorite bird dog? Mine was a German Shorthair Pointer. Her name was Kristi. I just put her down on 1/19. She was 13 years old. That had to be the worst day of my life so far. It was so hard. But man was she a great dog. She would hold point forever. She was a bit of a runner but GSP are known for that. But man she was awesome. We would come up on a spot and i can see a couple of dogs go through it already and find nothing but we'ld come in and she would always find a bird. The wife wants to get another dog for the kids and all but i can't do it yet. I know she's chasing all the birds now.
