I will say that one of my training buddies has a Bonepoint dog that runs big and is what most would consider to be a fast, high desire dog. It is a nice dog both in the field and water. It is also an easy 4 in duck search anytime he is turned loose. You should have seen him at the UT test during his duck search!

To hear some people tell it, the GWP breeders have taken the dog down the same road as the golden retriever, and its darn near impossible to find a good one if you're a hunter.

The truth is it isn't any harder to find a good wirehair pointer than it is to find a good Pointer, GSP, Lab, etc...

I also think its interesting that you don't see the same flame wars or aspersions cast about GSP's vs DK's.

Just curious as at first glance at your picture, it looked like he had his left foot up.....and I can't cay as I can recall ever seeing a dog raising the left foot. Looking at the picture closer, it was the right foot raised. Anyone that has taught many dogs to heel can tell the difference right away.

My pup turned 9 months old 4 days ago. Here he is this morning on a wild covey of Bobwhites. He had 3 more points on singles shortly after. Lots more ahead to see how he ultimately turns out but there have been a lot of positives with the pup so far.

Right on schedule!!!! Nice!!! What kennel?

I'm retired, with a truck and a sore foot. Plantar Fasciitis, had it for months. Bad stuff. Trying different therapy, seem to be making progress.

I get it too. Arch supports get rid of it immediately. I used the ones by WAlk Fit.n

Have you tried different boots or shoes?

Had a buddy get a pair of Russells and performed a miracle. Red Wing work boots and hunting boots did the same for me.

JTracyII,
Thanks for the note on Gunner. It sounds like you guys have a nice training group there, evident by your UT results. I told Lance that just because he got a UT prize I with his first dog as a 2 year old, he can't expect it every time :wink: I am sending him a nice little black female on Friday.

AverageGuy,
Spud looks great!

Orhunter,
Aggie is waiting for you........

Plantar Fasciitis: Have done the shoe inserts, stretching, changing shoes, going without inserts, more stretching, taping, heel cushion, sitting on my butt doing nothing.

A fellow on the local outdoor website suggested I get something to roll my foot on for a deep massage. Bought a hard little ball covered with knobs, put a water bottle in the freezer, dug out a dog training dummy covered with knobs. Been rolling my foot around on these things for four days now and this morning is the first time I've gotten out of bed and been pain free when I put my foot on the floor. It hurts a little bit now after walking around for a while but there is light at the end of the long dark tunnel.

Heck, I might go deer hunting this afternoon? Have a bunch of meat to vacuum pack and toss in the freezer which I need to get done.

KJ needs to post some photos of the elk he got a few days ago. Pretty lame of him not to....... Start buggin' him folks.

Orhunter,

I am a distance runner and the condition you are plagued with causes problems for distance runners frequently. Rolling your foot on a hard ball is one of the best treatments for PF. You have to stretch back out what is tight in there and break up any scare tissue. I am glad your getting some relief. Sounds like what your doing is working. Do more of the same. Golf balls and tennis balls are also good. There is also a boot one can get from a doctor that you wear when you sleep which keeps your foot somewhat stretched throughout the night, which does not allow the tendons, etc. to tighten up over night. He is a serious marathoner and said it allowed him to keep running as the injury healed. Good luck.
