Miriam, you should come down for our HRC hunt Sept. 24-25 and say hi to them yourselves! yes Ferrous is a very nice dog; he and Puffin are half sibs, same sire (CHestnut Hills Ironwood Oak MH***). Ferrous has a new little brother Eider 10 mos. that's doing pretty well also.

Last year in our open div. goldens were 1, 2 and 4, but we only had one run in the open this year (she was 4th).
