Peaches passed away on Friday- a good, solid dog.

Here is Peaches (Julias Southern Peach) with a limit of Blue Quail in NM last year and nailing a sharpie in MT. She was known as a "deliberate lady" and was just a solid bird dog. Not a lot of flash, but I could put her on the ground and she would go about her business in a determined and focused manner. She died way too soon of kidney failure last Friday at 10 years old- young, I think, for a dog.

Not long now!!

This time of year, I count down the time by grass cuttings. 4 weeks to go means 4 times strapped to the lawn mower cutting grass. Hunting buddies want to go even earlier, around 4 Sept. That's really tempting. The temperature in MT is hot enough, but we can break in the heat of the day....maybe 4 Sept doesn't sound so bad.
