If we can have a thread on the trad car, why not a thread on the trad dog?

My vote would be for the English Bulldog as a clear number one. Others for consideration would be a Springer Spaniel, an Irish Setter, and a Basset Hound.

Other thoughts?

Definitely a tie between a Labrador Retriever and a Golden Retriever. Or do as I've done and have both at the same time. They're awesome!

A black or yellow lab, of course. Although a terrier is acceptable too. ;)

I think we had a "Trad Dog" thread before this.

I think the most Trad Dog would probably be an English Setter as you hunted the coverts for grouse and woodcock with your grandfather's (or great-grandfather's) side-by-side Parker, Fox or L.C. Smith.

For Southern Trad, make that a Pointer and the quarry bobwhite.

Folks back home in the states just got this little guy, my Dad's Christmas present. His name is Duke:



I'm not sure we Quakers will put him to his original hunting use, but he will be the traddest dog yet and retrieve cigars and books when he's older if I have any say in the matter.

Curator,

Duke is the cutest dog I've ever seen! Love his nose. What breed?
