Sherlock went home!

Sherlock went home to his new family and is settling in well.

Sherlock LOVES Pheasants!

Sherlock was grinning from ear to ear once the pheasant game started.
this boy got all excited at the sight and smell of the pheasant wing.
He held back nicely...
...and gave us just one beautiful point after the other.
Look at that smiling face!!!

House Guest for a week

Sherlock went as a house guest to Indianapolis for a week until his new dad and skin brother could pick him up.
Sherlock made himself at home immediately and loved to snooze on the doggie bed.
He also loved to go and explore the house.
This was more of a rare moment of him resting by our feet---he's absolutely a lab boy!
...which you can see here.

Letter from Watson to Sherlock

My dearest friend Sherlock,
It seems like it has been a very long time since we have been investigating together. I have had a great time on my own and have met a lot of wonderful people in the weeks since our separation.

I want you to know that I have traveled extensively and I am now in St Paul, MN, with a wonderful, caring lady named Debbie whose back yard reminds me so much of Scotland Yard. It has been quite a journey to get to this point, I must say, but it has been worth it. We did make a stop yesterday at Burr Oak Winery in New Lisbon, WI and during my brief investigation of the area, I heard several gun shots. Boy did that make my tail stand up. It reminded me of our trips together in Indiana.

I hope all is well with you my good friend and that together we may solve the case of the missing adopters. I will always remember what you told me in “The Adventure of Black Peter” and that was “There can be no question, my dear Watson, of the value of exercise before breakfast.”

So Holmes, until we meet again.

Your dear friend Dr Watson

Sherlock at a visit...

Over the weekend at my brothers I found out that he is NOT a fence jumper, he loves tennis balls and squeaky toys.

Perfect timing!

Sherlock arrived at his foster home just in time for Halloween and he took his being dressed up as batman quite in stride. After all---famous detectives have to wear disguises all the time...don't they?

Sherlock rescued just in time!!!

Sherlock was found as a stray in Delaware County, Indiana---probably lost during a hunting trip. His owner never showed up and a likely brother (Watson) arrived a few days later at the same shelter.

Thanks to a shelter employee with a heart for rescue, who didn't give up and spread the word about these two little guys, Illinois Birddog Rescue was finally able to take them in, when foster homes became available.
