    Default Boykins uber alles (and uber Alabama, too)

    Right there in the newspaper next to the article about "Saban to Become Bama's Longest-Tenured Coach Since The Bear" was another story that my 13-year-old Boykin sho' 'nuff enjoyed having read aloud to her: "Special Spaniels." That's for sure - and bravo to a mighty strong case made on the Boykin's behalf by Butch Herb.

    Great article. Butch is a serious trainer that has done a fantastic job with his Boykins. Stoney even broke his leg and came back to win a National championship!

    I haven't seen him for about 10 years but there was a pro from NE Alabama that specialized in training Boykins. Can't remeber his name but I can picture him ...slender with a goatee, used to drive with a 12 hole box on his truck.

    Also for Michael ... did you know that Pat Dye is a Boykin owner?

    The gentleman's name is Joe Migliore. Joe passed away in 2010, he was my dog training mentor and friend. Thanks for the kind words concerning the article, LBD's rock.
