Bird work with friends!

Gunner on Point

Yesterday we drove to Sussex County, NJ to get Cleo out on some birds with Bob C. We are hoping to run Cleo in an AKC Hunt test in the next couple of weeks. Not sure if that is going to happen now. We think she may be coming into season. I'll guess we will know for sure in the next few days. But she had a good day in the field. For me, one of the best parts about training yesterday was my dear friend Jackie Secan came to train with us and brought her GSP Gunny. Below are some pics of him in action.

I Love that face!

On Point - hit the bird from quite a distance!

Gunny has such an expressive face and eyes

Gunner ran in and placed in a few field trials last year. He will be two years old next month and he will be running in a field trail next weekend down in Maryland.  He has a great nose and hopefully Gun Boy will bring home some ribbon bling for Jackie.

Cleo on point

It was fun as always to get Cleo out on some birds. She stayed steady through the shot and had a perfect duck drag. I personally haven't seen her do a duck drag since last year but it was great to see she had no issues.

Delivery to hand

We have a busy couple of weeks ahead of us. If Cleo does not come into season we will be gearing up for her hunt test. Cleo's litter sister will be here Easter weekend and pretty soon we have to start preparing and working towards her Utility Test and then her new little sisters Natural Ability Test. It's gonna be a crazy summer!
