Only 3 More Days of Grouse Season for Montana

December 15TH is the last day of Grouse Season for Montana. That gives us 3 more days and my husband says it's never enough. I suspect the Gordons feel the same way.  Happy is still in "hunting mode". Every time Dan walks through the house, Happy is watching. Sometimes he even gets up and follows him about. He doesn't want Dan to leave the house without him. Once it gets dark, which is about 5:00 these days, he settles in for a nap before dinner. Until then, he is always on the guard ready to go.

If  9 months is a long time to us, imagine how long it must seem to our bird dogs, waiting for next season to roll around. A very long time I bet! It's been really cold here, minus 8 one night, and Dan hasn't really been out much, but I'm sure he'll want to make the most of these last few days. I hope you guys do too.......before you settle in for that long winter's nap!


  1. I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you I absolutely love your Gordon Setter passion! We have had three and they all were very special to us. The picture you posted reminded me of My Parker. As a pup he was always getting into trouble, but he was by far the sweetest boy we have ever had. When I was pregnant with my first child he would never leave my side, and when he didnt want me to go some where, he would simply back up and sit on my feet. I miss my Ol' boy. Those deep dark eyes (in your gorddys pic) made me nostalgic! :)

  2. Thanks Leigh! You're going to really enjoy this coming year. If things go well, we will be having 2 litters of puppies. They are always so much fun and I'm looking forward to posting puppy pics. I can tell by the way you talk about Parker, that you know Gordons. They are such wonderful dogs. Glad you like my site and thanks for stopping by!
