My 12 year old, now blind, dog named “I’m Lucky 2″ aka Deuce and his sister Rosa shown here pointing ring-necks this March. This training field is groomed short broom grass planted and groomed by my friend Bob Montler at nearby Marymount Kennel. At this training field, Deuce can just run to his nose and instincts and it’s beautiful to see. No obstacles, just running and searching with his nose needing no sight! Then a majestic point and then also retrieves most of them following the sounds of the flush, the bird flight sounds, and the shots. He then searches from my call of “dead”! He finds it and fetches most of them back to me following my voice. I’m amazed. He is happy even being blind, just to be home and be rubbed on with love every day. Soon he’s going to the place where he can still run and find them and live our dream… Buck

    Great Story, Buck! My last and best Beagle, “Bess”, was also blind the last season she was able to hunt. She could still chase rabbits like she always did. It’s amazing to see our hunting pals cope with adversity like this and still seem to really enjoy being out there with us.
