Spencer at Play

Throw it again, Mum!

Is that a grouse I hear?

Lately, our little guy has been doing what he loves to do best - cavorting in the woodland, kicking up the fallen leaves with his dancing feet, pointing grouse, partridge and wild turkeys, excavating sticks and chasing them when they are thrown for him. The secondary orange collar is a concession to the deer season which has been in progress here for the last few weeks.

Our fond and constant companion, he would be here more often, if only he would slow down once in a while - most of the images I snap of him are only a blur when uploaded here (the first one here just a tad so). Spence loves his bosky freedoms and expresses the opinion that is he is only young once and should make the most of it.

What soulful and wise eyes he has...so handsome with his markings! My sister has a GSP named Rose and she is all aquiver when she spies any bird - her entire body is taut yet trembling.

Wow, what a handsome fellow he is! Just beautiful. Don't let him run out too far, I am always overprotecting, my girls give me the look about that. I would probably have Spencer wearing those orange and yellow vests the cyclers wear.
Wow, you can be very proud of him.

He is a beauty. My little Callie runs through the woods at a speed that is unbelievable. Hope she is not mistaken for a Fox.
