: Thanks Everyone,
: I am really enjoying this young dog.
: She has been knocking at the door since she
: was a derby, and I was fully expecting to
: win one this season, her 1st year broke
: But we haven't been getting the breaks. You
: know how it is, every field trial it was
: another unexpected thing to work on, and I
: was starting to think next year might be her
: What I really enjoy is working her on horse
: back on wild birds. To find her ahead on
: point and flush a covey of valley quail or
: find her over the hill and still have her
: birds is the most fun. The field trials
: cant compete with that with the planted
: birds etc, but you have to do it to see
: where the breeding and individuals stand.
: Nice to hear a young man that what he really enjoys is horseback running on wild birds.To find her far ahead on point and flush a real wild covey is just hard to beat. Some folks will never know this thrill.This type dog is good for the breed.
More good luck with her.
: I saw a good write up of her sister,
: Southwind Jetset Drifter, at the 2012 Hobart
: Ames Memorial field trail, but you cant
: compare the level of competition she is
: competing at. I was really impressed with
: her write up in that competition with 50
: Also, I am hearing really good things about
: Mike Spies Cody, from the second litter, I
: know Jerry has some good ones he speaks
: highly of and I am really enjoying their
: younger brother Jag from the third litter. I
: know there are a couple more out there that
: are doing well.
: The other thing is it has been a
: collaborative effort, help from grandpa
: (Jerry Lewis - my mentor), Hal Meyer scouts
: and does all the stuff Hal does, broken
: toes, training grounds, Sheldon Twer has
: helped me sharing his home and training
: grounds and teaching me and my dogs and
: Katie Quarton supports me in training and
: from the gallery.
