In the past,George and Pete Holthe have owned many Spaniels and other "Bird dogs."George and Pete knew Thunder was Birdie. So Pete decided to take Thunder out Bird Hunting this year. He took Thunder on opening day (10/18/03) with no prior training. Thunder did fantastic. Pete and his partner, Khary both got there limit the first day (3Birds each) and the second day Pete limited and Khary got two Birds. Thunders job was to track the Pheasant and flush them out, and after the Bird is shot Thunder had to retrieve it. The first Bird that Thunder retrieved was only winged so it was still alive and Thunder manhandled it a bit. However with the other Birds Pete and Khary shot, Thunder was very soft mouthed and retrieved the Birds and dropped them at Pete's feet. Pete is now thinking about taking Thunder Duck hunting some time this year, because not only is Thunder one of the best bird dogs they have owned, he is the fastest swimmer that they have ever seen, and he loves the water.

During the weekend several other Hunters stopped Pete and asked....
"Hay, is that a Pit Bull?"
"Are you Hunting with it?"
When Pete showed them what Thunder had done, one Hunter could only reply...
"That's the Damndest thing, I think I have ever seen!"
Pete say's "you get some funny looks when you show up at a field to Bird Hunt with a Pit Bull." The funniest thing about it though is "most everyone that is there picks up their dog's and goes somewhere else."
