Five covies huns, five covies sharptails, 20 pheasant and some darn fine dogwork marked this perfect day! My puppies are handling the birds with not only technical correctness, but also a type of grace. I can read them so much better now. I know when Ruby's tails starts that little wag, you may as well cock the gun. And when Cap starts and stops a.few times with his head high and moving back and forth, he'll be locking down in a matter of seconds. And Ace was his usual typically outstanding self. When my pups get 24 hunting trips under them (as Ace does) I hope they have the attitude, intelligence and class he has.
On to Minnesota and Ruffled Grouse.
