The Labrador retriever has epitomized the term "versatile gun dog" for decades -- long before it became North America's most popular pet breed. Whether launching themselves from a duck blind into the skim ice of a winter marsh or rooting a gaudy, cackling ring-necked pheasant out of a tangle of honeysuckle, working Labs consistently display courage, persistence, and style.
The twenty-one stories in this anthology, put together by Gun Dog magazine field editor Joe Arnette, celebrate these qualities in stories that inspire joy, sadness, admiration, and remembrance. Contributors include the best-known writers in the gun-dog business, including E. Donnall Thomas, Robert F. Jones, the late Gene Hill, Ted Lundrigan, Michael McIntosh, the late Richard Wolters, and Arnette himself.
