The Run of a Field Trial Dog

StartFragment"There is no one word to describe the hunt and race of a shooting dog, like you might say of a horse that it gallops or of an eagle that it soars. The shooting dog's race is seldom sufficiently described even by combining those images or by adding any number of adjectives or adverbs. You may often hear such colorful descriptions as "hell bent for leather" or "wing footed" or "sizzling afire." Such metaphors aid your imaginings. The shooting dog's race is swift, agile, and nimble, yet not like a jazz riff, because it is predatory. It is like sword fencing, like a rapier cutting the air in a purposeful attack on the field trial course."EndFragment
