: Harry, got obe'd, but the copy is in the mail.
Yep, arrived yesterday. I note that Shelly advises that one hunt 5 or 6 Cockers. Kinda difficult to keep track of that many. I mostly hunted one, sometimes two but never more than that. Little buggers could really find birds. I remember once hunting a big field behind a guy running a brace of pointers. My little bow legged grandson of a Sandspring bench champion flushed a bunch of pheasants that they missed. His front legs were bowed but his head was as broad as I've ever seen on a Cocker Spaniel. And full of brains! :-) Harry PS That was in the late '40s.
