Springer Spaniels: Poppy the Hunter

Taking the Victory Lap - Poppy, with the Late Mr. Pheasant.

Unfortunately, Mr. Pheasant didn't stand a chance. He was dozing in the hedgerow, and Poppy was faster than his wake-up call. :-(

Springer Spaniels: Poppy the Hunter

Prancing round with her “trophy” - the Victory Lap - a bit further round the circuit.

Poppy has also caught a squirrel, several other pheasants, and rabbits, some of which I was able to retrieve and return to the wild before she frightened them to death.

She also caught a mouse, which I tried to retrieve, but the mouse bit me! A fatal move on the mouse's part, as I might have tried a bit harder to save it otherwise!
