I’m not much of a hunter. OK, I don’t hunt. At the tender age of 57, I’m looking at entering the hunting fraternity, courtesy members of TTAG’s Texas crew. One good reason to do it: owning a hunting dog. Is there anything more wonderful than watching a canine bred for the job doing its job? Can’t think of anything right now. Meanwhile . . .
Schnauzers. Miniature schnauzers. Hey, I didn’t choose them. But I love them and they’re pretty good alarm dogs. Rosie and Maggie bark at all visitors — even if they’ve know them for years or the two-legged types leave the room for 30 seconds. That said, if they’re asleep at night, they’re about as good at responding to strange sounds as my rugs.
Got dog? How does your canine companion(s) help you as a gun owner? And please, ID the breed and name names.
