When I was growing up, my Dad, popaw and uncle all had bird dogs. They always let me name them. Dad's English Setter was Rascal, Popaw had Irish setters named Red, Ruffy and Copper. The best was Dad's Brittney, Samantha who we nicknamed Sowbelly. I hunted with them from the late 80s when I was little through the early 2000s when about all the grouse disappeared from here in Southwest Virginia.
