Bird dogs are truly happy when they are in the field doing what they were born to do.

More: Fiocchi (Daredevil Baron Von Vader) is his name. He was born on May the Fourth and he is my first bird dog. I am an adult onset hunter. He is a wonderful family dog and excellent hunting partner. This picture was taken on his first wild bird hunt. We were in Iowa chasing late season roosters and he got some.
