I wanted to give a public thank you to Mike Perry of Townley, Alabama for the work he has done with my BLM. I carried Trey to Mike the second to last week in May. I explained what my expectations were with short and long term goals. Mike said that he would keep the dog for two weeks to determine if the dog had the tempermant and work ethic he desired in a client dog.
Long story short, he has taken a dog with multiple ghosts in his head and laid the foundation such that Trey should be a very solid hunting dog, and with a little bit of luck we might have some success in a HT or two. We have been lucky enough so far to have gotten two started passes at the Central La HRC hunt test. Trey has also retrieved a mess of teal on three different hunts. :P
