Very cute. Is this a French Brittany? I'm getting very serious about getting another dog and a French Brit is what I'd like to get? Are you happy with him/her? It will be a family dog and hunted very little. My wife insists on a light shedder and I've been told these are fairly light, is that true?

Negative on the shedding...

My last Britt (French) shedded as much as my current (American)....which is quite a bit. But hands down, they're awesome family dogs! Just keep them brushed.

Thanks for the info Slowfinger. Curious why you had a French and now have a American? I'm leaning toward the French just because the size is a little smaller and I'm told maybe a little less "hyper". What's your opinion? Thanks!

My French was 15 when I put her down. She was a hunting machine and was constantly by my side. I told myself I'd wait a year before getting a new pup. I waited 2 months before I couldn't take it any longer. I went to the same breeder, Jessi is a great niece of Kelli. The breeder got sick of all the wacko's who said the French Britt wasn't as good as the American Britts and so he quit breeding them. So I went with an American. My French was all black with white and my American is a typical looker. It was a hard decision to make, but I don't regret it a bit. My French was tougher, but I haven't found out how well this one hunts yet - things look good. They're the same in terms of hyperness. And size is switched, the French was bigger. Be sure not to settle tho if you want a French...I personally don't care what kind, I just love them Britts.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
