The article presents a narrative of the author's recollections about sharing the enjoyment of field hunting with his hunting dogs. According to the author, his dogs were, and still are, Brittanys. For 22 years the pride and pleasure of working his own dog was worth whatever it cost for vet bills, food, and toll on the backyard landscape. He introduced a number of others into the fold.
