Been watching a few of his pups. Several of them have made GREAT hunting dogs. A couple are in hunt tests and the obvious few in field trials have done OK I guess. Just kidding. Seen good enoughstuff to breed to him this fall.
As far as Ricky, he's alive & well. He still needs (I think) 3.5 pts. to finish his FC and a few more than that for AFC. He ran well this spring and was there at the end on several trials, but no placements (just JAMs) due to the dreaded "Last Bird". We'll keep our fingers crossed for Fall.
Your best bet is to contact Cliff and Jeanne. They are really nice people and were able to give me Ricky's trial dates so I could keep an eye on him last summer. We have a Ricky daughter and are pleased with her.
Hope things are going well for Molly, Jim & Kristine!
