Pepper

Dear Bill & Terry,
Thank you for your yearly letters. We enjoy reading them & keeping up w/pepper’s Mum. I’m a little sad that she is retired but totally think it is well deserving. It is my selfishness that makes me sad as I love pepper so much. She has & continues to give our family so much love & joy.  Enjoy the picture.Pepper

Our grand kids Bailey and Bennett class’s got to visit with Sage’s pups.  Lots of smiles and tail wagging.  Hard to tell if the teachers or the students enjoyed it more.  Puppies loved it!DSC03033 DSC03036 DSC03037 DSC03038 DSC03039

PF Pheasant hunt

It was a great afternoon for a great pheasant hunt w/the Pres. of our PF chapter.  Pres. and Vice Pres. need to hunt together more often than we have!  9 birds.  Mr. Bill Schallers English Cockers were very impressive and I got pictures with two of the pups from the new litter!  A really good day overall.  Ericunnamed (3) unnamed (4) unnamed (5)

Roscoe 11/24/17

Hi, Bill:
Just wanted to give you an update on Roscoe, who is 18 months now.
He’s developed in a really strong hunting dog. He did a great job on woodcock earlier this year. (He loves woodcock—he’s a cocker, after all!) Grouse were scarce, but he flushed and retrieved a couple of those, too.
A couple days ago I was hunting pheasants in southern Minnesota. In about four hours of hunting, flushed five hens and two rooster. The first rooster went down hard and Roscoe was on it right away. The second, however, was a different story. We were working a sorghum food plot. I could see the plants thrashing wildly as Roscoe worked something about 10 yards to my left. Suddenly, up jumps a rooster without a tail! Kind of freaked me out at first, which is my excuse for whiffing on the first shot. I shot a second time and felt that sickening feeling as the bird sailed away, dropping about as fast as the setting sun. A runner for sure, I thought. Roscoe was over there immediately, but we couldn’t come up with the bird. I let him work the area about 20 minutes, but we found nothing. So we worked the field over again—it was big, about 150 yards by 1500 yards. Finally, at the very end of the field—about 120 yards from where the bird dropped, I saw Roscoe wrestling with something in the sorghum.
It was a rooster without a tail.
Cheers,
Greg Breining

Two weeks old today

Sage’s pups are two weeks old today.  They have really grown, just eat and sleep.  This is soon to change.  Their eyes will be opening later this week.  Yes the white male has orange on his head.DSC02670 DSC02671 DSC02672 DSC02673 DSC02674 DSC02675 DSC02676

Milo 2

HI Bill,

Its Jess, just thought I would send a quick update on Milo who is nearly 6 months now.  He is doing well and fitted right into our family and won everyone’s heart over.  He follows me everywhere and loves to play fetch and retrieves very well. He also loves going for calf cart rides with the wind blowing his ears.

 He is fully crate trained and likes to have alone time in his crate sometimes. He is very easy to train and picks up on new tricks within 1-2 days. The only one that took a while to master was potty training but he has got it now.

He has a high bird instinct and whenever he is let out of the house he sprints for the chickens and has successfully caught several, luckily not killing them. However, he has caught a wild bird in our garden when he was younger.

Thank you for bringing such a happy and loving dog into our family, he never ceases to bring a smile to our faces. Hope all is doing well with your new puppies and all your other English Cockers.

Reggie

Bill,
I thought I would drop you a quick note.  I hope all is well.  I wanted to let you know that Reggie is an amazing pup with such hunting drive and wonderful personality.  Reggie and I go everywhere together and I just love spending time with him.  We have been working on his training and going out and practicing bird hunting.  You would be pleased to know today Reggie got his first grouse and did an amazing job.  Last week he flushed a pheasant and we are just beginning. 1-IMG_2611 1-IMG_2615 (1) I am truly blessed to have such a great companion.  Thank you so much for introducing us.  I hope all is well with you and your family and wonderful English Cockers.  Take care. Sincerely,
Corey and Reggie
