We've got a couple of pups here around 10 weeks old out of Yank and Angel and I'm starting to like them a bit. The male is a spittin' image of Yank when he was a pup and the female is a little dickens and into everything. When I came home today, they had a pair of boots, sweat pants, two plastic planters, a dust brush, a ripped up plastic bag and two small empty boxes piled up by the kennel. When I got to cleaning it all up, I uncovered a dead ground squirrel that they must have found somewhere and when I picked it up, they started treeing on it like it was alive...what a hoot...I closed the shed door so they can't get in anymore so we'll see what they're able to round up and pile up tomorrow. I've seen this before...they'll be getting with the program young...just like those that came before them did. The female goes to southern Iowa at some point and the male will stay home for training until I see what I'm looking for and then maybe on to someone who'll like him and give him his chances or back into the program...we'll see. I'll get some photos of these little monkeys...they're nice pups.
Corey...Rock is looking good, I'd bet he'll keep you busy for a long time to come and that you're going to spend some good nights in the woods this fall. Nothing better than seeing your own young hound learn his business...nothing better.
Thanks Dave...we'll see if Lucky makes the cut but...he sure started off on the right foot and he's a likeable little cuss too. He hasn't shown me anything to make me think he won't be worth the effort and I'm looking forward to the next few weeks and months.
Unrealistic expectations are a roadblock to success, judge your dogs by what they are ready to give not by what you wish they'd do.
