Hi Bill

Thought I would let you know that Cubbie (born March 30, 2014) has now passed his AKC “Good Citizen Test” and is now involved along with Wrigley in Reading Programs with kids at two elementary schools.  Plus pet therapy at a local retirement home.  He now truly has a job and is doing very well.

Cheers Stan & Kathy

Chief 2016

Chief (my mom’s dog) went with me to North Dakota this year and did really well.  He has a nice nose, a little goofy (he is obsessed with chasing shadows and light reflections), but a nice boy nonetheless.  I am attaching a picture of him with a limit of pheasants we got in 45 minutes of hunting.

Han Solo

Hey Bill,
Just wanted to give you an update on Han Solo.  I was looking at your wesite tonight and I saw a picture you have of Duke laying down and I thought “Wow, that is exactly how Han Solo lays down with his back legs straight behind him.”  I guess he takes after his grandfather.  Solo’s second season had gone very well.  He is excited and high energy, but this year had more focus as he has matured.  He is a sweet guy who loves pets and to play with our older ECS.  Hope you are making it through winter well.  (Offspring of Sage & Max)

He looks just like his Dad Max. And I recall I said “I’d love a dog just like him” when I met Max. And look what happened. He’s perfect. Fabulous in every way. So easy going and such a loving and fun dog. Thanks for trusting me with him!  AllisonBilly

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

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.

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.
