    Heave a great weekend Gregg! I don't get much training in during Dec and Jan. I'm currently in Crested Butte Colorado enjoying a bunch of new snow! We'll be here through Christmas skiing everyday. January is full of hunting trips. Look forward to the spring field trial season. I cant wait to see Reese run in the big leagues. See you in a few months.

    Merry Christmas Gregg! I took a week off to hunt pheasants in South Dakota week before last. We had a great time and gave the dogs a really good workout. Sounds like a great training weekend you have planned in GA. Weather has been beautiful here in NC also until today. We will get some training in this weekend as well.....less the 85 flyers.

    That sounds good Russ, very nice of Patti to volunteer her holiday time.
    Will the temps. be ok for water work?
    Have fun and be safe.

    Will be running the critters tomorrow, followed by a couple of days of Christmas obligations. Still recovering from training three days with a crew and Pat Burns last weekend.

    I know its gotta be rough skiing in that 2 feet of new snow.
    Don't break anything, you need all extremities to shoot ducks and run your dogs in January.
    Maybe I'll see you in Arkansas.

    Hey John, Did Sam get to hunt with Bill?
    I have a friend in SD hunting this week, sounds like fun.
    I'll see you in January when the dogs go back to training camp.
    Merry Chrismas,

    Gregg

    I think Easter will be full of Tune-up drills. By July 4th we'll probably be doing lots of water blinds...maybe some poison bird work. Water marks too, of course. And I love indented triples on Veteran's Day, don't you?

    Now I'm looking for a "tongue-in-cheek" emoticon! Oh well, this one will do...

    Evan...BTW, Merry Christmas to you too!

    Taking a bit of a breather.

    Now I'm down to two dogs, the work load has been a bit much; we've just done three big days on the trot and it's enough. We won't be out now until the 29th so we can all rest and recover. January's schedule looks pretty manic so some recharging of the batteries will be welcome. Until then our recovery plans will be discussed here ..... http://www.bullandheifer.co.uk/gallery




    We have a new training ground lined up for the Spring; free, gratis and fer nuttin', so there is the opportunity to get a few new boy pups rolling along.

    Have a nice Christmas all, and stay safe,

    from Eug, The Management, Jacko and Louis.
