“Most of all, a great dog never stops teaching its owner. And if an owner is wise, he’ll never stop learning. A synchrony exists between an old dog and its owner, a synergy that builds with time spent together communicating in voice tones and body language. Birds might have first drawn us to the sport of wingshooting, but it’s likely that our dogs have kept us in brush pants and double guns.”
