Where to begin? First off I would like to thank Bill for being such a good and loving person toward his dogs. I consider Bill as someone that I can now call a friend. My Schaller cocker is named Rex. Boy he is everything that I expected and some. I bought him as a started dog (hunting)and a family pet (for the Wife). When I say started dog I mean Bill had him practically trained and he has been a pleasure to have on hunting trips and at home. He is the most loving and affectionate dog I have ever had. The one down side for me is that he is a lap dog and I love him for that. He is always trying to please, and does not have to try as hard as he does but we will keep that to ourselves. He is extremely smart and knows all that he is doing. He is a pleasure to be around, and is quite social butterfly. Meaning he has yet to meet someone or some dog that he does not like. I would recommend that anyone looking for a good dog that is both active and loving, should talk to Bill. He is a great man and a great breeder. Bill, thank you again.
Hope you had a wonderful holiday period. I imagine that you are counting days till retirement, if you are not using vacation time yet. Hope you are staying warm. Rex had a great Christmas we went for a trip down south into southern Missouri. When we left Iowa it was teens to twenties and in MO it was 50’s and 60’s till about Christmas we got a dusting of snow. We went out twice for chucker and quail on the family farm. It was a blast and he did a better job than me. (The lead tip helped to keep him in close, thank you). My dad was very impressed with how well Rex hunted as young as Rex was. We hunted on my birthday the day after Christmas and boy he did the best job. We had three dogs out which kind of worried me because I had never hunted with one of the dogs and did not know how Rex would handle it. He handled it great and showed the other two up. Rex flushed almost all the birds up and was phenomenal. We bagged 29 out of 35 chucker between the 6 of us. Our shooting was more disappointing than anything else. We did split the hunt into two, two hour hunts. With about a 2.5 hour break for lunch and to let the dogs rest. It was great to show off my Rex to my dad and he was very impressed.
Pheasant season is winding down here in Iowa we have till the 10th. The temps are almost too cold to take Rex out to go to the bathroom let alone hunt. But he loves the snow and loves to run and jump into the drifts around the area, like a little kid in the snow.
Hope everything is going good for you and your family. Take care.
Aaron got Rex as a hunt trained started puppy on Nov 13th, 2009. He was just 5 months old. Rex is 6 months old in this story. Yes I am retired now. -Bill
