    Overslept, eh? Well, it happens. 'Course the dog doesn't understand, but she still loves you. She doesn't know what you kept her from...probably. She is unlikely to think that she might have caught on to some essential bit of training and experience that would completely fulfill her genetic inheritance, her drive, her entire being. She still loves you, even while you were sleeping...unaware of the beating canine heart that races at the very scent of your gun and gear being loaded. She still loves you, dependent as she is for all things in her life. So, the sleep you got is probably a good thing, no matter what the near or short term effects on her life, training, natural reactions to wind, weather and game. Well, fine. Just fine.

    Question

    Terribly windy today in the grasslands, 30-40mph sustained. The springers were dropped first and quickly put up two roosters, the first got up into tge sun and by the time I was able to identify it I had to let it go. That would prove to ve the only rooster in range. Lady pointed three covies of quail and a few snipe, one I decided to shoot for her. Total for the day was 4 roosters, 4 hens, and 4 covies.

    That's because she's a fine sports car and he's a bulldozer.
