Which is Which? Guess the Breed, Win a Training Gear Bag from Tri-Tronics

By Chad Love

One of the really cool things about attending a gundog-centric event like Pheasant Fest is that you get the chance to see so many different gundog breeds under one roof. It really is a unique opportunity, and I can't think of any other venue where you can see such a diversity of working gundog breeds from, literally, all over the world. Some of them look familiar enough to where you can at least take a guess at what they are, and some of them you simply don't have a clue.

Here are two of the many breeds represented at this year's show. I'd like to do something a little different from the usual caption contest, so what you have to do is figure out what they are. One of them might be an easy guess for some of you, as the breed -- while still very much a novelty -- is gaining in popularity. The other one will be a little more difficult to identify, and even harder to pronounce correctly.

Which is which? I 'aint sayin, but I'm gonna bet against the collective wisdom and predict that none of you identify both breeds correctly. Yep, that's a challenge...

Put your guesses in the comments section and I'll announce the winner (or winners) next Monday. The winner receives a super-sweet nylon training gear bag, courtesy of Tri-Tronics.

In the event of a tie or multiple correct guesses I'll go with the first person who got it right. And in the event that no one guesses correctly, I get to keep the bag myself. So good luck. Or perhaps, not...

I'm going to go with a German Spaniel for the first one or Deutscher Wachtelhund and for the second Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.

I don't really want a prize if I'm right, I had to do some research (surfing) to get the first one, the second one I'm pretty sure on without any help.

Or maybe a Deutsch Langhaar or Boykin Spaniel and a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. Definitely the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever though.

First one is blue picardy spaniel, some have brown coat instead of grey/black.

And the other one is Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.

Gordon Setter my big old butt, ain't no Boykin for sure, maybe on of the Hitler dawgs the fellerz was talking about, I ain't got a clue. But the second is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling retriever, and a fine example of one to boot.
Gordon Setter, please,,,

On second thought I'll go with American Water Spaniel with "marcel coat" and NS Duck Tolling Retriever. Solid colored Gordon Retrievers are uncommon but the other physical features match up pretty well. I think it's unlikely that this dog is a Gordon.

Im pretty sure its a German Long Haired Pointer, considering i have that looks just like it....BUT Wachtelhunds look similar to them so it could be one of these too.
the Second is absolutely a Novia Scotia Duck Trolling Retriever & a beautiful one at that !!
