He is my 3rd pointing dog, he is Orca Celtick's (my first
Griffon Korthals) great-grandson, like Celtick and Ranger primarily
for hunting, but as an everyday's companion. He began his pointing
dog career differently from Celtick and Ranger because from an early
age I brought him to ruffed grouse and woodcock woods, he was 3.5
months old, then the first outing in hunting season he was 4 months
old when at the time Celtick was 7 months old and Ranger
was 5 months and 1 week old.

Bobcat Celtick he first did 3 outings before the hunting season,
where once (3 September 2013) he became aware of the smell of the
ruffed grouse after the fly-up and he run to where the ruffed grouse
fly and another time (6 September 2013) he became aware of the smell
of the American Woodcock after the fly-up where he went to lick the
woodcock's dropping and then roll on that site. I photographed these
moments of pure happiness.

And I will never forget that at his first hunting outing of his career
in hunting season on September 15, 2013, when he was 4 months old,
in 30 minutes in the woods, on the 5 woodcocks and 1 ruffed grouse
they were there, he located 1 woodcock and did an pointing on 1
other American woodcock. I took in photo that very first pointing
of Bobcat Celtick and then the woodcock in-flight.

Another difference I made this first season, while at the time with
Celtick and Ranger when they were puppies all the outings were
with the hunting shotgun, with Bobcat Celtick its first season
we mainly did photographic hunting because he was too puppy
to come out with the shotgun, on the 21 outings we did with
Bobcat Celtick it is only the last 4 from November 8, 2013
which were with the shotshotgun. His first hunting season
Bobcat Celtick was 4 months old (15 semprembre 2013) to
6 months old (21 semprembre 2013). I did many hunting action
photos of Bobcat Celtick in the woods and few photos of the woodcock
and ruffed grouse in-flight, located or/and pointed by Bobcat Celtick.

He has no evidence of hip dysplasia, for his hips he had
X-rayed by the method of Penhipp and hips are very good,
Penhipp R.0.30-L.0.33, right hip 0.30, left hip 0.33.

He passed his three FDJ (field dog junior) tests of the
Canadian Kennel Club with a score of 97% in Saint-Canut,
93% in Saint-Jean-de-Matha in the morning, and 96% in
Saint-Jean-de-Matha in the afternoon, all three in Québec.
