An un­likely gun­dog

The Field - - #THEFIELD -

There’s not long left to claim eter­nal gun­dog glory as en­tries to The Field Gun­dog Awards close on 1 Au­gust. Hotly con­tested on­line this month is the best non-gun­dog breed gun­dog cat­e­gory. We wanted the weird and won­der­ful but French bull­dog Otto was a sur­prise. “Otto loved to go lamp­ing and would find foxes in the

stub­ble. His favourite out­ing was to re­trieve rab­bits I’d shoot over fer­rets. His keen­ness for

game would ri­val the best field dogs.”
