Spike is an eleven year old German Shorthaired Pointer or GSP for short. The GSP was bred for hunting but I also think they were bred to teach patience to their owners. They are smart and stubborn...a deadly combination when you are trying to teach them who's Top Dog! We have finally come to an understanding I'm the boss, when he let's me. ;)
So today we went out to the dam, one of the places I take him to run. In the winter they lock the gates but plow the laneway so it's easy walking. The only problem is that they don't let you park in front of the gates. We only go here if the roads are clear ot else we'll end up putting the truck in the ditch.
We ran into a new dog and his owner stole Spike's ball. He claimed that his dog would think it was his. When he tried to throw it for Spike the dog growled at Spike. Spike was offended so the guy handed the ball to me and all was right with the world again.
We don't have a lot of snow around here right now but here's some pics from last year to show that we do indeed have snow!
Needless to say.....Spike LOVES the snow!
