The Puppies Going For A Swim!

The puppies had such a long run in the grasses they needed a drink. It was so great to see all of them have so much fun somewhere in Iowa.

 

The Puppies and Dixie

This was an awesome run for the puppies and Dixie. The puppies were-Alice, The Ferg, Bonnie, Clover, Trigger and Maggie. Todd was walking to me and Dixie was up front pushing a pheasant with the puppies right behind her. Watch the video and listen to what Todd is saying. Many more photos and videos to come. #spanielsinthefield #uplandhunting

First Day In The Field Somewhere In Iowa!

No photos as Christina organized the house after we did food shopping this morning, and it was low 40s today. There is a lot of water and a lot of crops in the fields but we still pounded cover today and found some birds.

Here are a couple of highlights…

Gracie worked a moving bird in the grasses for about 25 yards and then the bird lined out. I saw her in a dead run about 80 yards away going over a hill. She returned in about two minutes soaking wet but I never saw the the bird.

Georgia worked a bird in the canary grass for about 25 yards before it ran into some woods for about 25 more yards. She pressured it back into the canary grass and put up a rooster another 25 yards out…pretty cool.

Dexter ran tight in canary grass through some woods and brush along a water way. He put up a woodcock and gave good chase until it finally flew across the water.

Whaley, Bailee, and Gunner ran well in various cover but the birds won.

Alice, Maggie, The Ferg, Trigger, Bonnie and Clover all ran together and missed out on pheasants but did jump about a dozen ducks!

Old dogs get to work tomorrow.

Scott & Dibbs got their AFC title today at the Northern Colorado field trial. Scott has been working hard since he started field trialing one year ago and titled Dibbs with two wins. Dibbs was developed here at Craney Hill Kennel and we cannot express our excitement for Scott, Jennifer, Bailee, Carley and of course Dibbs. Well done!
