I was looking on The German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue site and I found this and thought it would interest you!!

It's painted hands!! Really incredible!

Here's the site but it doesn't have any info on the artist! I was just looking at the puppies than need homes!! I've fallen in love with pointers! At the bottom of the page is a little brown puppy called Megan that I fell in love with! My neighbour has one the same!!

if i were adopting a pointer, and i didn't want to spend the rest of my life trying to figure out how to wear one out, i would look at a mix. Bronki was a labrador pointer cross, he had all the intelligence plus those beautiful eyes that the german shorthair has, but not the spikey fur. Bronki's grandfather's fur would set me up in hives from the pokey hair, Victor's is as soft as a new born baby. They are a high breed..and if they are mixed with a more reasonable breed (like the labrador) you get something a bit more calm. (not that i am advocating cross breeds) but if i were looking to adopt..i would go for a lab/pointer. I thought Mary's daddy was a speed demon but oh my..Victor is something else. I Love all the hunting class, i don't know why pointers pull my heart strings but they do. I will always want a really smart dog..and Victor IS all of that. I wondered why u were looking at the gsh site..i guessed but did'nt say anything. I wish u could have met my Bronki. He was so calm, and wise, and loving. Victor is smart, and active and more active on top of that, and loving..sometimes i would like to turn him down just a notch or too, but he is doing better much better than even a few months ago. The figure 8's in front of the door were ..oh my..it was as if he was going to walk himself right there if i wasn't willing to come along.I think Mary's tired of the figure 8's in the back of the car..and she has for the first time in her life..moved tot the front of the bus. I am pretty sure that is why. Meagan's a beauty..they grow up to be such graceful dogs..Ny neighbor said she loved to watch Bin run back and forth for he looked like a walking horse..he picked his feet up high and had quite a handsome gait.

My dad retires from his desk job next year so he will be on full time call out for the humane disposal of injured animals like Deer etc. Also he will be working with the Rangers who help villages who are under siege from Wild Boar! They move in and take over villages as they are so nasty people are afraid to leave their houses!! Seriously it gets that bad!! Last year they moved into a Bus shelter! And Dad's Springer Barley is perfectly trained for Phesants and Game birds but he is not a Pointer! He won't alert Dad to a Wild Boar until it is too late!! So I was thinking that I may get a Pointer this year and start it's training so it will be good to go by next year! I was only a thought though!

sounds like a grand one! wild boar wow..i wonder what Vic would do if he saw one of those..the instinct is strong to freeze first..the pic of him and MAry at the tarp..was actually a point and honor point..they stood there for a very long time. Any other dogs would have given ol Eddie the nudge he so deserved..pointers are polite.

that is my all time favorite art..what is made in the moment..for fun! At the tute one fall the students raked up the leaves (all a brilliant yellow from the hundred year old ginko trees) and formed a very long arrow that went right up to financial aid..it must have been done in the night, but when i saw it not one leaf was out of line, and the line coiled around..it was beautiful.
