    Talking My New Buddy

    Finally got to pick my lab pup up on Sunday. His call name is Jackson.

    Parents are GMPR Sauk River's Weekend Warrior "Gunner" x Stosh's Red Piper Point "Piper"

    The Sire is a Jake pup and the Dam is out of Rooster Smasher, so I'm excited about his potential. Even though I'm sure he'll out perform my training by leaps and bounds.

    As of now, we'll be following Hillmann and then transitioning into Lardy eventually. Right now we're working on some basics but he's mostly just getting to be a pup. He's a smart dog and a blast to be around. I've been reading on here pretty regularly since I decided to get my first gun dog, and I'm sure I'll pick up more from you guys along the way. He's mostly going to be a gun dog, but I'm also interested in the APLA events and possibly some hunt tests.

    As a side note, any ideas for a registered name to go along with Jackson? Something to do with the parents name would be cool. Like something with "Action Jackson" too, but maybe that's too common.

    what a widdle cutie!!!!

    reg name - "Gunner on a Stonewall" call name Jackson.
    Yes Stonewall Jackson was in the Army of Southern Agression.
    But he was a good one and worthy. Handed Pope his a$$ at manassas once or twice.
    May have been when he lost an arm.

    Why didn't you get a cute one? just kidding that is a great looking pup. Looks like he is a very active little pup, so if your into MMA call him Rampage Jackson. lol
