Dog of the Day: “Mallie”
Brandon Decker’s 10-year-old “Mallie” rounded up these pheasants and partridge on a South Dakota hunt last autumn. “Mallie” also gets upland work in near their home in western Kansas. “She’s an excellent bird dog and has incredible drive. She never wants to stop hunting,” Decker said, “She’s starting to show some age, and after a day of hunting, she has some trouble getting around. However, the next time I grab the keys and reach for my shotgun, she beats me to the door and though she doesn’t jump as high as she used to, the enthusiasm is still there. We have shared a lot of fond memories in the field.”
