Well I am not sure how or why, but I adopted a new dog that was in need of a home. She is a 1.5 year old Wire haired Griffon (Korthals Griffon) named Ember.
I was not looking for a dog at all, but she needed a home that would hunt her. My wife saw her and said "she is cute, lets keep her", I took her to the field with chukar and pigeons and she passed the test. I have some yard work to do, but she has the credentials and the instincts.
She has hit it off very well with the rest of the gang, especially the mini dachshund.
I hope to put her on some ptarmigan this weekend.
