  1. You remind me a lot of my Father! You live the way my Father always talked about. My Mom, not so much. I appreciate all your knowledge and amazing strength to live with Adele and enjoy peace. I’m on 20 acres in Montana and I will never live in a city again. Anyway, thx for Mountain Men. I enjoy😊

  2. He loves his dog Adele! Heard she was hurt by a bear! Shame he doesn’t have a backup dog that Adele could train!

  3. Adele is a beautiful dog and looks more like a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon than a German Wirehaired Pointer. Similar dogs, but yet different. Really have to believe Adele is a Griff. Both are excellent bird dogs. Best wishes for Adele and hope she is okay. From both me and Emery, my Griff.
