James Johnson doesn't hunt.
"My dog hunts. I just shoot," the Chattanooga sportsman says of his German shorthaired pointer, Bolivar Axl Lemondrop Fluffy -- "Bo" for short.
Bo is a bird dog, also known as a gundog, which is specially trained to find, flush or retrieve game birds in the field. It's common for registered hunting dogs like Bo to have long names, a practice that helps separate them from the pack, so to speak.
"When I got him [three years ago], I let each of my granddaughters give him a name," Johnson says. "The 8-year-old chose 'Axl' because she loves rock music; the 6-year-old chose 'Lemondrop' because she loves Harry Potter. The 4-year-old took it the most seriously. She prayed about it for days before choosing 'Fluffy.'"
Johnson chose Bolivar after the Cuban cigar.
