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.

You may often hear such colorful descriptions as "hell bent for leather" or "wing footed" or "sizzling afire." Such metaphors aid your imaginings.
