I have written about my hunting dogs before in This Is My Bird Dog. I can pretty much sum up that I don't have a bird dog anymore since my old dog, Maddux, is too old to hunt. That doesn't mean he is too old to retrieve. Maddux has a passion for stuffed animals. He can sniff one out anywhere regardless of well we hide them. Here is a short video of Maddux in his old age still retrieving - never quit Maddux.
