We're in the July issue of Gun Dog Magazine, a respected upland bird and waterfowl dog publication. The image is of my friend Kyle Miller's little Springer spaniel Lilly with a ruffed grouse during our annual Bird Camp hunting trip down in Dickinson County.
Lilly's photo accompanies an article about care for senior hunting dogs, which is appropriate because she is getting up there in years. But it's also funny to me, because she still acts like a spoiled little puppy. If I had a dollar for every time we've shooed her smelly, muddy and wet doggy butt off our sleeping bags, clothes and cots at bird camp, well then I wouldn't have to sell pictures of her to make a living!
Anyway, it was nice to work with Gun Dog, and thanks Kyle and Lilly.
Here's the shot in the mag, as well as a few others from bird camp.
