A Weekend of Fr Brit Field Titles

This weekend Mike attended the Midwest Epagneul Breton Gun Dog Wild Bird trial in Iowa and came home with two new titles on the dogs.  The trial was held in CRP fields with wild pheasants which are Jack's favorites.  Jack's talent and experience showed in his run and his handling of the birds and impressed the judge enough to earn him 1st place in his stake.  This win completes Jack's Gun Dog title; not bad for having run in only 4 trials.

Mike also entered his puppy, Rip, in the TAN which is a natural ability test for Fr Brits.  She quickly showed her bird finding ability and pointed with style to earn her TAN title.

All in all a fun and successful weekend.  Thank you to the breeder - judges for considering our dogs.

Photo fest, part 2

Our season continued in November.

I still need a good dose of ruffed grouse hunting every year, again this year it was in MN.

Due to spring rains, the habitat in KS was great this year.

Even as we closed out the season we were already talking about and planning next year.  But in the months in-between we will be busy.  We are planning two litters, one Setter litter and a Fr Brit litter not too far behind that.    As winter begins to break our produce operation will be revving up with  Farmer's Markets and bread baking beginning in April.

A little photo fest

It has been way too long since I have made a post, my apologies.  If a picture says a thousand words, how about I post a bunch of photos as a way of getting caught up?  I'll start with Montana in this post.

As we walked into our favorite local watering hole in MT for the first time since last year we were greeted with "welcome home."   Yep.  

A rare foggy day.  There is actually a dog on point up in the middle of that fence row.

We had an unusual amount of rain and mud this year.
