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.

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!

I love getting updates about my girl Clair.

Here are some notes from Grier and Camille about their morning dove hunt with Clair down in TX. Thank you so much for the notes and for taking such great care of Clair. Y'all look like you are having so much fun. Keep the notes and photos coming.

Notes from the field - Opening weekend of dove season in Texas. We shot our limit and Clair retrieved them all even in 90degree plus weather. Clair was such a big hit on the hunt, and was admired by all the hunters. She also helped the other hunters find their birds. What a Fun day! We love Clair so much!

Sully Goes Dove Hunting!

The Dove season has started and we really enjoy the notes from the field on our dogs. Sully from KY had a great day in the field and his owner Steve is very pleased as to how Sully was working during the hunt. As you can see Steve used the place board with Sully in the field. Great thinking Steve. Why not help the dog with place during the hunt.

Thank you for sharing and keep the stories coming we love them.

Gracie Getting Ready For The Season
