It started somewhere on a field no doubt, spoken by a man with gray in his hair and a limit of birds in his vest.
While it was probably first spoken literally, it’s evolved into slang and buried itself in country culture like a rooster pheasant in a tuft of switchgrass.
Nowadays when a man bites into a good burger he says, “That dog will hunt.” Or, when a woman is test-driving a new Chevy, she looks at her husband and says, “That dog will hunt.”
The meaning has evolved, but one thing has remained the same: that dog will. The will of a dog is the reason they have the ability to raise our blood pressure when they disobey, raise our cheeks into a grin when they make their first retrieve, and bring us to tears when they breathe their last breath. A dog’s will is the reason we love them.
That dog will always be special
That dog will listen … sometimes
That dog will point me in the right direction
That dog will hunt, and so much more
