John,

Welcome. I'd be suspect of a guy who didn't love the breed he owned, bred and trained...no matter what the breed. Brits are wonderful dogs (and that's from a dedicated Gordon Setter owner/hunter of over 30 years). There's nothing quite like taking a bird over your own dog with a Parker.

John, you have certainly landed at the right spot if you appreciate Parkers. The most friendly, knowledgable, and dedicated group of guys( and gals) you will ever find. We all love pics of guns and dogs, and hearing of your exploits. Welcome

From age 3 to age 73, I have always had a bird dog. ln order, Irish Setter, Irish Setter, English Setter, English Pointer, English Setter, Springer Spaniel, Springer Spaniel, German Wirehaired Pointer. Guess which is the best retriever, bird finder, most loyal, most lovable? Yup, you got it, the last one. Of course the next one will surpass all of them in all categories. However, let me tell you, retirement will change everything. My Wirehair, Eva, was with me 24 hours a day for her entire life. That is a real change, one that we all should experience. Don't enter retirement without a bird dog.
