My family got our dog Goose in 2008 when he was 6 months old. He was named after the pilot Goose in the movie Top Gun. My dad's nickname is Maverick so Goose is like his "co-pilot". We got him from a farm in Pennsylvania and our family friend got a puppy too. Goose and his sister Stella go hunting together all the time now. He is a brittany spaniel and started hunting when he was only one. He was a natural when he started and has the most beautiful point. He is very, very well trained and can even throw up in the toilet. Something funny about my dog is that he actually talks to you. You can howl at him and he will answer. One time when we were backpacking, he went way into the woods and came back with uman feces all over his body. He is a very special member of our family and my dad's best friend. He even goes to work with my dad everyday. We bring him everywhere just like another member of our family.
