Excerpt from The American Hunting Dog: Modern Strains of Bird Dogs and Hounds, and Their Field Training
This little volume is written to furnish an up-to-date book confined exclusively to the breeds of American hunting dogs in use to-day. Without a dog, sports afield nowadays are apt to prove rather barren in results in the game bag. Never before have American sportsmen relied so much on the dog as a finder of game. Our coverts, while holding their own and somewhat increasing, are far depleted compared to the abundance that obtained thirty years ago. It takes the fine, sensitive gift of a dog's instinct to locate game nowadays. Without him the day is likely to be one of exasperation, due to game flushing without warning or good covers hunted without starting anything. With him a satisfactory day's bag can be had in any part of our country where there is wild land, even quite near the great cities.
The love of a dog is a fine and noble thing. There is no quid pro quo in his affection. He has no thought of service for hire, nor reward for his invaluable aid, save that you love him as he loves you.
