Bird Dogs Lightly Done

July 2nd, 2020 in Arts & Photography by April Michelle Davis 0

Local cartoonist Bob Schweikhardt’s Bird Dogs Lightly Done is 108 pages of cartoons, quirks, and stories of hunting dogs and more. Back in the 1940s, a boy who liked to draw rode his bike down to the Gambles store, plunked down a hard-earned forty-seven cents, and bought a box of 16-gauge shotgun shells. He borrowed his older brother’s English Setter (and his double barrel) and went bird hunting. He was hooked.
