A Picture Can Say Only So Many Words
Sometimes the field grasses are so tall that they will tickle a short man's chin. His bird dog will get lost in those grasses, and its whereabouts will be known only by the tinkling of its collar bell. When the bell goes silent, the whole world goes silent, and the hunter silently moves in to flush. Then the silence is broken by the cawcacklescreetch and the shot and the tinkling of the collar bell rushing to the fall.
The story of the bird dog is told as fable in Rooster, a Field Trial Fable.
