Lady 2003-2017

Mr. and Mrs. Renfroe,

It is with an extremely saddened heart I am sharing Lady is no longer with us - May 28, 2003 to November 10, 2017.  She was the smartest and greatest dog I have ever owned.  As I was looking back at some of her puppy pictures, I was reminded of how you had moved us from the bottom of a long waiting list to the very top and even gave us pick of the litter when there were only two pups (Maybeline and Lady). 

Attached is one of the last pictures I took as she enjoyed some time in my lap.

Thank you again so much for affording us the opportunity to have Lady become such a large part of our family's life.

God's blessings,
David

LOVING friend, the gift of one, 
Who, her own true faith, hath run, 
Through thy lower nature ; 
Be my benediction said 
With my hand upon thy head, 
Gentle fellow-creature !

Lady to the Max

David Shinn is always so kind to share a photo of Lady on her birthday.  She is a pup out of our Pris Wilkerson.  Her Grandmother is our angel, Belle Starr.  Her father ole Max.  Little Lady is 14 and still going strong running the squirrels up the tall trees and singing her treeing song.

Thanks, David Shinn, for sharing with us!

Spud Saving On Dog Food Bill

 Been letting Spud run loose.  Yesterday, he caught a squirrel and this morning he had this coon treed.  He is trying to keep me from having to buy as much dog food!

RIP Galla Creek Oliver

Galla Creek Oliver--Tie
September 6, 2008--February 15, 2017
 Born, raised, and buried on Galla Creek!

Here is an old video of Tie treeing made by my friend, Matt Howell.  I can hear Matt saying, "good, boy, good boy!"  That was Tie a good boy.  He was easy on the eyes and easy to love.  I am proud to say he never went a day without his supper.  He was part of our family and we will remember him forever.  Last July, he had a cancer removed and Doc Davis told me when it returned he would go quickly and he did.  He ate his food this morning and was gone by afternoon.

Staying Busy

 Spud is staying busy in his retirement.  Yesterday when I looked out the back door.  I saw this field rat he had left for me.  He goes swimming in the pond and Galla Lake several times a day and stays on the move almost all day and much of the night.  I hear him treed everyday back at a big wild Cherry tree at the edge of Galla Meadow.  July 22, he will be 11 and I say..."Spud, do whatever you want to".  He has earned his days to roam free.
