Been a tough summer on us here with losing two of our absolute best dogs and having to finally retire 13 year old Abbie to the couch.
So it's been a summer of running young ones 2 and 3 times a week solo and in pairs.
The only seasoned hounds that we have left is Mag's younger sister Molly at 4yo and my big male Luke at 3 yo. Molly has had a really nice summer and will be taking the lead role in our hunting pack.
Cinder Mag's dauhter is 2 now and will get a ton of work too, but she's running a bit rough right now.
Been really happy with this young guy,
Duke is looking just super at only 10 months old. Can solo a bunny for hours and will make some seasoned dogs look silly at times in a pack.
Meet "Lackawanna Put up your Dukes"
He is out out FC.HBCH Snotop's Blazin Butch and 3XFW Snotop's Lackawanna Jezynowka (another younger sister to Maggie)
This guy appears like he is going to be special.
Most talented pup we have had here since Mag.
Well anyway, after all that happened Janie and I needed a pick me up, so it's on an airplane tomorrow first thing and off to Colorado to hunt elk for a week.
This is my second favorite this to do in life.
Wish us luck and we'll see our fellow houndsmen in about a week.
