West Siberian East Kentucky Laika goes ermine hunting in Alberta:
You don’t see the ermine, but he’s from old sable hunting stock.
Dave has had Pavel out “bark-pointing” ruffed grouse in Alberta.
The other dog is Riley, a
Swedish vallhund gnome wolf.
Pavel treed two grouse, and Dave shot both.
But one wound up falling into a deep hole where the only thing that could get it would be a little terrier or maybe a ferret.
Dave reports that Pavel bark treed his first ruffed grouse yesterday. He treed a second one but stopped barking, so Dave let that one live.
The Turtledog is making it in Soviet Canuckistan!
Dave’s taken Pavel out after ruffed grouse this year. This is the result of their first successful hunt together. Photos by Dave Parsons.
Pavel’s pretty much grown up.
Yes. This is the same puppy I sent to Canada!
Pavel’s spend most of the winter in Finland, but he’s going back to Canada next week.
