This guy takes a prospective buyer of his dog hunting to demonstrate what a great bird dog he is. He puts the dog down in the field. It runs around the entire field and comes back to the owner. The dog immediately paws the ground three times. The owner says great he has found three birds, so the two of them go out in the field with the dog, it points them and they get the three birds. The guy does the same thing in another field and dog runs the field and comes back and paws four times. They get the four birds. The buyer can’t believe how great this dog is and immediately buys him. He can’t wait to go show off his new dog to his hunting buddies. They all go out to large field and turn the dog loose. The dog runs the entire field and comes back to him with a stick in his month. The guy is totally frustrated and sends the dog out in the field again. The dog still brings back a stick and is moving its head profusely from side to side this time. He is so embarrassed in front of his friends he shoots the dog. He then goes back to the person that sold him the dog to get his money back. Upon telling the former owner the story of the dog bringing a stick back and moving his head side to side and how he finally got so frustrated he shot the dog in disquest. The man replied back to him. “Are you crazy, that dog was telling you there were more birds in that field than you can shake a stick at”.
