Already the summer is dragging on. Cutting grass has already started! I'm working through pictures of this season. Maybe I need to not do this. Trial season is over, too. It's a sad thing to see bird dogs after the season is closed.
Ruby is just now coming out of heat. It's been 17 days since I first saw her spotting. I think I'll give it another week and then do the "stud dog" test on her to make sure she's back up. I really wanted another puppy or two out of Ace, but I figured it would be nice to go a whole season with three solid broke dogs. Now, I may be getting "no breeding remorse". Well, it's a done deal now. Might as well just look forward.
