    Luke is a Bubba grandson with Bubba being on the top side. Luke is just about handling land blinds as well as most Finished dogs, and able to hack through some very long cold blinds pretty well for a dog that just turned a year old in January.

    Luke has an unbelievable bottom on him and he's built like a tank. He's pretty quiet at the line but has this unnerving desire to squeal his wheels out of the gate when running blinds. If this is what Bubba was like all I can say is WOW!

    I judged at "Bubbaland", which is John Pease's beautiful training property, reportedly earned from Bubba's popular stud duties.

    The dog in the picture below is my dog Major, Bubba's grandson by NFC Drake. He's fun.

Hatch is a large, athletic dog with nice style & big water entry. And he was 3rd in the SW GA Am last weekend along with an open JAM. Hatch is a fox red.
    The reason for the thread was to learn more about my dogs pedigree. My dog Ely is a Bubba Grandson as well. Sounds alot like your guy David. He has never required much pressure or attrition.

    Mike I did not realize your new guy was a Hayseed grandson. Hes been a good one so far hasnt he?

    Thanks for the pic Greg. Yes Bubba throws some good ones.

    I remember judging Bubba at Mid Illinois. He was pretty young then & was running the Open. We had a pretty tough quad with a bird that was just giving dogs fits to find in a marshy area. He had a pretty good hunt on that one bird, but was called back for the land blind.

    John brought him up to line & spent a few seconds getting him pointed just so & then kicked him off. That dog could take a line like few dogs I've ever watched--especially because he continued on that line until John decided to move him a skosh to the right or left. As I recall, he lined the blind that day. When he was on his way back from the blind, I congratulated John on such a nice blind. His reply: "He knew I was mad at him over that mark in the first, so he just had to make it up to me by lining the blind!"

    Is that the trial when he broke his leg?

    Those two were a team!

    I don't believe he was injured in any way. It was just funny to hear John talk to him like he was another human! Probably spring 1996-7.

    It's often funny to hear John talk, period. Bubba understood him and John understood Bubba.

    Bubba broke his leg at Mecco Mines one trial. Had trouble with it on and off the rest of his life, though he lived a long and thoroughly loved one. He had a special place in the back seat of the truck (rarely riding in the dog box) or living room sofa.
