Default My newest Parker

I know itís probably a cliche to name her Parker, but my daughter chose and I considered anything that wasnít Anna, Elsa or any other Disney princess a victory. Sheís my first bird dog and I am excited about this new adventure!

Congrats Jacob,

That's a beautiful pup, and I'm sure everyone loves the name.

Jacob, Parker is a great name, and for more reasons unique to you and your family than I could list here. I hope you have many great days afield with Parker, and that your family comes to cherish this pup (like I'm sure they will).

Keep us posted on Parker's progress, and thanks for posting.

Thats a fine looking pup and your daughter did well. I've been a fan of shorthairs for close to 40 years, their great dogs excellent companions and good hunters.

My daughter Perry is a new owner of a Brit she named Parker . He and Dessa will have a blast this season. Opens on 14 Sept maybe I can get her to post a pic of him he is a looker. Your GSHP is fine looking. Jacob That looks like west Tx where do you live?

We live in Colorado Springs, but southern Colorado has a lot of that rimrock desert full of yucca, cholla and prickly pear. The trail where that picture was taken is called the yucca loop. If we rotated 90 degrees left though, you would be looking at Pikes Peak.

It’s good luck to name your gun dog after your favorite gun. My Boykin is named Parker, and she loves everyone, and everyone loves her. I’ve also had A Remmy, a Colt and a Dan. It’s good luck to combine the two.
