Snow Day with Scout

We got some significant snow over the weekend. Yesterday my 6 month old Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, Scout, and I were able to get out in it and play. Here she is sporting a snow beard.

She is challenging to get photos with crisp, sharp eye shots because of all the hair in front of her eyes. The scruffy hair acts to protect them in the brush when hunting so I won’t be trimming it. The scruff is called furniture.

She really enjoyed running through the fresh powder.

I know I am prejudiced, but I think she is a beautiful dog and such a clown. We are working on her hunt training and I am looking forward to hunting chukar and quail with her next year.

  1. That first shot just sums up the joy and fun she’s experiencing in the snow. I miss seeing that sheer abandonment to romping. So much.
    Thanks for the smile… πŸ™πŸ€—

    1. Yes they are outstanding hunting dogs. This is my 2nd Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. Lost my first one in February to a catastrophic spine injury. They are wonderful dogs. πŸ™‚

  2. Scout is a lovely Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, and she certainly appears to be having the most fun possible in the snow! Thanks for sharing, dear Alison ~ have a great Friday! πŸ™‚
