RIP Copper

Evitts Mountain Copper passed away earlier this week.  Although she was my "back-up" dog and always lived in the shadow of Hattie she gave me some wonderful memories of our days afield.
Her first solid woodcock point.
She always hunted "on the fly".

Some of her points that I was able to "capture" over the years.

She was always a "camera shy" dog and never liked to pose for pics with birds so I have only a few.

The last bird I shot over her was this grouse that she handled like a true veteran.
She's resting now beside Hattie at the top of the Home Orchard where I can visit with them both daily.

Rick, it is a tough thing losing a dog. It sounds like she has an ideal resting spot. I am sure a part of her is buried in your heart as well. Gil
