    Default Proud of my son

    I am so proud of my son Gray. He handled his dog El to 2 Seasoned passes at South Mississippi and added an HR title to her name. This weekend he participated in the AKC Junior Handler program & passed Annie in Junior at North Alabama. He showed more composure than his Dad at the line.

    Line up with whistle in mouth. Annie is ready!



    Ready to handle if needed


    Gray with El & 2 weekends worth of ribbons.


    The future of our sport. I couldn't be any prouder!

    Awesome! Congratulations to Gray. I suspect there are many more titles in his future.

    It is so great to see young folks in this sport. I was at a hunt this past weekend and at the Master test there was a little fellow dressed in camo about 6 or 7 yrs old taking the ducks from the judges and hanging them up.
    Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

    What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?
