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.

 

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.

Pigeon Fun Day For The Pups!

Bonnie, Dixie & Ferg had some pigeon fun this morning in the field.

Owners from South Carolina came over one day to see their English Springer Spaniel Whaley that has been here for training. Along for the ride, were their two young daughters. Our English Springer Spaniel puppies Alice and Maggie had a fun play day with the two young girls. Lots of treats and hugs! Thank you girls for doing a great job with the puppies.

Introducing Our New Springer Alice

Fresh on the Craney Hill Farm – Miss Alice!

Alice is enjoying the nice GA weather, she is chasing leaves, chewing on everything in sight, loving the soft sand that she runs in, and she has her own playpen. What more can a puppy ask for?!

Our New Year Puppy Dexter!

Welcome to Georgia Dexter!

Dexter had a fun plane ride from TX, and he is already running the house. Dexter has been very interested in the Christmas tree, I hope the tree holds up just a little bit longer. Dexter is very busy training with Todd already. One must get an early start on a young puppies training, plus they get tired and take little naps. Enjoy a few photos of Dexter!
