    First Pic is Idgy, owned by me, and Roux, owned by Frank Price (and me)

    Next pics are Arcadia's Senor Jefe, QAA, 10 AA points

    Choco dog is QAA Bleu owned by me (and Frank) in several different hunts

    Last one is AFC Gracie, now deceased, in a water hunt.

    Since I'm a guide, my trial dogs have gotta hunt, and they do it well.

    Little Didi, daughter of Jefe and Idgy, performed well in the field as a one year old. Didn't get any pics of her!

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Yes I know Howard that is what they seem to say. I was/am never very good at following rules though.

    Feared by ducks, envied by hunters and loved by dogs.

    Thank you Justin he was truely comical to watch and would swim for hours "fishing", when he was tired and had enough he would get out of the water. He was truely my special dog and probably my dog of a lifetime. He truely amazed me in all facets of his life and on a daily basis. He was such a joy to be around. Even the folks that don't like dogs, enjoyed him. I took him everywhere with me and the only place that I couldn't take him was to work. When he was 9 or 10 he was diagnosed with Arthritis in one of his elbows, the Vet said to swim him as much as possible VS. Roading him(which was a daily thing with him in his younger years). I figured at his age at the time it wouldn't hurt a thing with letting him "fish", he knew the difference of when to fish and when not to fish. The Asian carp, silver carp, whatever you may choose to call them are litterally lousy around this area on the river. I have to admit, I had nothing to do with him fishing, he adopted that all on his own and got his exercise all at the same time.

    Troy,

    Those are great photos. Really cool when you see the dogs with their handlers and the pride and joy they bring to their owners.

    Thank-you Rich, Pearl has been a true joy. I've owned many hunting dogs before, all beagles, LOL. Pearl is my first lab, so needless to say she looks like einstein compared to the beagles, although they were very good at what they did. Yes, lots of pride, we trained all summer and she started hunting at 7-1/2 months, we still have lots to cover and learn but she exceeded all my expectations and ended the season with 118 retrieves, 6 bands, and I gave her my own blue ribbon,

    From this...



    to this, in 6 months...
