Finished pass and greenheads,...
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

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

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,
to this, in 6 months...
