In a post entitled Spring Loaded, PDN posted this fabulous image above of an English Springer Spaniel coming up near some birds and flushing them out of the bush for a hunter to shoot at.

The Springer Spaniel is well adapted to hunting as it is known to have an excellent nose. So good is its nose that the dog has been used to sniff out bombs, illegal immigrants, bumblebee nests, and even mobile phones in prisons. If you’ve got a nose that can smell a mobile phone, you win.
