I will try reposting here. Did not work very well under the general discussion forum. Somebody was offended.
We picked up our new German Shorthair Pointer.
Which by the way is a GUN DOG and we intend to hunt with her as with our other 3 German Shorthair Pointer hunting dogs:)
As the rule of this forum state it must fly, lope, or charge.
This puppy does not have much lope in her but she does seem to fly at times, and just rattle the food bowl and she comes charging. :)
Now I hope that this meets all of the criteria of The Hunt forum.
That being said, here is our new pup.
No name yet, but will accept any suggestions.

Brandy, and don't sweat the other thread.

March 2, 2008, 02:57 PM
Thanks Don
The pup came out of Sharpshooters Kennel, so we are considering a registered name of.
Sharpshooters Ask Em to Dance
Nick name Sadie
Kinda catchy don't ya think?

I like it.................to quote an old movie favorite of mine "it sings"

Beautiful dog. I love the ticking on the coat. I have hunted behind a similarly marked GSP and she needed an orange vest so we could see her.

Hogan's Hero.

Hogan's Hero
Great idea, but we are trying to get away from the theme.
We have a GSP named Hogan, and we had an old GSP named Schultz.

March 2, 2008, 03:31 PM
Hogan, I hope you read my reply "over dare" on the other thread....
No matter the name I love it when a dog fulfills the meaning of the name...
My dog Deadly is one mean Gyp on a hog kinda dopey lookin' mug but catches like a freight train and wags that tail the whole time!
I can't post a thread of my dogs cuz we don't use nor allow guns on the hunt... It is all mano y piggo:D But they do charge good!

Aaaaaawwwww! As far as a name - because her life is just going to get better and better (as a hunting dog) - Cinderella And because she looks like she has been playing (working) in the ashes of a fireplace - Cinder for short.

March 2, 2008, 04:15 PM
She is too cute! Sadie sounds good to me, whatever, just get her out to hunt. I just love pointing dogs!

March 2, 2008, 04:53 PM

Never, ever spoil your bird dog. ;)

Never, ever spoil your bird dog.

Sorry the damage is done. But they still hunt.

March 2, 2008, 06:38 PM
Ah I gotta get out of apartments I miss dogs! Have fun with 'em. Just stinks that utility has to vary inversely with cuteness in most animals, but it'll be a good time either way.

March 2, 2008, 07:05 PM
Skadi or Ull both are Germanic hunting gods.

A name with a long E sound is easier to yell. Beast, Freddy, Braggi.

We have a GSP named Hogan, and we had an old GSP named Schultz.So I guess "Klink" is out? ;)

The first name that came to mind after seeing those eyes peering out of what looks like a black hood is Caspar.

Congrats on the puppy, nice looking dog.

Every single one of them are beautiful. Thank you all.
So are my three; a stinking Bearded Collie (12 yo), a mellow Sheppard (20 mo), and an extremely hyper Boxer (3 yo). As were my previous various hounds (RIP).

No pics because I'm too lazy to use an additional service to post them thru.

He's a vacuum cleaner-attacking, cat chasing, leg-humping machine, but I love him anyways. How could you not with a sweet face like that. :rolleyes:

Here's my alert hunter with prey .

It's not fully appreciated and recognized but Mastiffs go after the big & dangerous game -


Charley IV with captured tiger, largely just skin only after his carnivorous tendencies are satisfied.

Ignore the guy with the T-shirt promoting machine guns - he's harmless -;)

Man, look at the paws on that guy. OJ- I knew your dogs were big, but that picture puts things into perspective.

Man, look at the paws on that guy. OJ- I knew your dogs were big, but that picture puts things into perspective.

Yep - he is the largest one we've ever had over nearly three decades of Mastiffs. The funny thing is - his breeder initially just "placed" him with us as free and we were buying his litter-mate sister for show quality price - he was the runt of the litter and was nicknamed "Danny Di Vito". He wasn't even registered so we registered him as "Farpoint's Charley O'King".

Turned out he was one of a litter of ten and his attitude is to be non aggressive - 10 pups vs 8 nipples. He now is the largest of the litter at 202# - "little" sis is only 199#. We finally prevailed on the breeder to accept pay for him - we couldn't live with the fact he developed into such a superb example of a "Gentle Giant" as Mastiffs are described. We got them at 11 weeks old and she was 31# and he was 30#


And now -




We got tired of the show game and just allow ourselves to be owned by them. ;)

His sis carries the registered name of "Farpoint's Fallon In Charge" given by the breeder and she does pick on him but, he is smarter and bides his time and just "gets even" in very subtle ways. We've never had litter mates before and it's been an experience.

Great looking brindle Mastiff but - He doesn't look too happy as a Cornhusker Fan- Maybe he'd rather be a Buffalo fan.;)
