If you guys are interested Bob Farris was on the hunting dog podcast back in March. I haven't listened yet but listen to a lot of his anyway just to past time at work.

I listened to the podcast and some of his ideas about dogs and picking up a pupp left me surprised.
one of his points was something as fallows (can't quote him exactly tho):
He takes his puppies out in a open field and watches them. the ones that stay around him, basically by his legs, he considers to be the best ones. But the ones that go farther away he kinda reconsiders them.
I always thought otherwise...

Well, if he is like me, this is what he sees. The pups that take right off are very bold but not very bright. Intelligent dog's are cautious of the unknown. Bold dog's charge in and get in trouble. As long as the pups stay around my legs and wander out 20-30 yards or so, I'm fine. If they show fear and won't go anywhere they're gone. I hate shy pups. Anyhow, with out knowing the man or who he is, that would be my guess.
I just hate seeing birds die of natural causes unless I'm that natural cause.

I love the Bold puppies that go exploring on their own. Mine have been a handful, but none lacked for smarts.

I'm about half way through this book and I'm really enjoying it. As someone new to versatile dogs this book has been helpful and informative. Bob does an excellent job providing a high level of information in a way that's easy to understand.
