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.

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
