I've had two Britts...

IF I get another dog it will be a Twombly English Setter from Coronation Kennels and hopefully one of Gracie's grandpups.

And this is the boy they’re holding for me.

Indeed he is! He's truly the image of Grace... in fact, that's what I'll name him - IF I get him...
"Image of Grace"

No brainer... He's gorgeous... Yeah I know but you won't be sorry.... Unless maybe you want to travel extensively?

Yep, that's the only reason we're holding back...

I could leave him with my daughters if we travel but they both said "No thanks." They each have territorial dogs,

But there's more than one way to accomplish the feat.

I always felt like I knew Gracie and enjoyed your stories. I hope you go for it.Do you have a shooting friend for the 16 I heard you talking about few months ago with a lake house. Hope you do and you could raise that beauty of a dog together. Hope you are well Drue and I plug along missed my Mearns hunt in Jan Drues mom at98 too much risk for us to go very far. But my Raven is locked and loaded and keeping us on our toes! Turkey almost here and you and I shared some of my hunts with the Parker Pages articles you published for me. Take care and stay well> Do I hear the food bell ringing????

I'd sure go with the granddaughter. Well bred dogs cost more at the beginning, but the probability that he/she will work out is higher than a rescue dog, In our family, once a dog come thru the front door, it's ours for a lifetime. I want to improve my odds of not living with a loser for a long time

I turned 74 and just bought a Lab pup, Miss Mollie. She came from South Carolina both parents are UKC champions and both are AKC master hunters. Good genes are cheap in the long run in my opinion. I agonized about getting a pup at my age but so glad i did. I enjoy training and handling in hunt tests. I plan on duck hunting into my 80's god willing. I lost my wife in Dec 2022 and my dogs and my son keep me going.
