Happy Birthday Siler

The Bird Dog is 4 today! We rescued a German Shorthaired Pointer almost four years ago from Canada. She was found in a bad situation among a litter of 14 puppies, only 3 of which lived.

This is the rescue photo that made me fall in love with her in the first place.

I flew to Montreal {which just so happens to be where I was born} and picked her up. Honoring our southern upbringing, we named her Whiskey Siler after Silers Bald on the Appalachian Trail, and you can probably guess the Whiskey part, "Moonshine" didn't flow as well.

She sure is sprightly and action packed. Loves to run, swim and especially fetch!
