Flushing Dogs - Mattie the English Springer Spaniel
Mattie is my first flushing dog, and I named her after Mattie Ross from True Grit. I got her last year, and prior to that time, I had always hunted with pointing breeds. My opinion of flushers was not very good back then, because I thought that flushers just "busted" birds all over the field. Wow, has my opinion ever changed. If you've never hunted with a flushing dog, please keep an open mind and give it a try. I can't think of much I'd rather do than hunt quail with Mattie.
