About that upcoming litter - they going to be more of them "triple-threat Boykins" - flush, cap-R Retrieve and that other great Boykin trait you enlightened us about?

    Robt., 'fraid this is one o' them "lost in translations" - Honkin being amongst the Hawkeyes which is another name for denizens of the fine state of Iowa, not a lot of hawks' eyes drawing a bead on him. Don't know if I would cotton to falconing over a li'lo Boykin, as the hawk's eyes - the goshawk's eyes - might light up with anticipation of its next meal. - Have had bald eagles give mine a 25-foot flyover with that prurient thought in mind.

    On the other hand...the Boykin's retriever outlook is finder's keepers, as with this mallard drake



    that fell out of an eagle's nest shorn of its neck plumage (but got delivered "cleanly" for table fare, instead of going back to what vanquished it as bird feed).

    Tell more about your falconry wannabe-ing.

    EIC is about as prevalent as it is in Labs. I know of three that are Affected, as well as a couple of carriers.

    Not sure. Many Boykin owners aren't testing for it yet, but I had Reese tested, & he was clear.

    Eic statics are just about the same in Boykins as labs. Most are testing now.
