Wayne Hawkins and Hard Tack

Wayne Hawkins came to Galla Creek to go hunting
and let Hard Tack see his birth place again. I enjoyed
the fellowship not just the squirrel hunt and hope he
enjoyed his stay.

Ozark Mts.

Our friend here (Wayne Hawkins) said he
really wanted to see the Ozarks. Here is the
view we showed him. He said it was as pretty as
he thought it would be.

Getting an Added Bonus!

Squirrel hunting is a great enjoyment in itself,
but as you hunt the country side you get an added
bonus of seeing the most beautiful scenery in
the entire world.

Hunting on Christmas Eve

We are going on a little squirrel hunt
today...taking Spud, Ohio Lia, Brown
Sugar and one more dog. I never hunt
a 'pack' of dogs together. Two is
all I like to hunt at a time. I
like to take four dogs and hunt
two and then rotate them. My picture
today is from Wayne Hawkins and is of
his friend, Jerry, and the small mouth
bass they caught. I am dreaming a little
today of summer and fishing Galla Lake.
Merry Christmas to all my Feist Friends!
I hope this next year is a good one for
all of us.

Fred Allen in OK sent a new photo of
Jessie-out of Carolina Crossfire and
Spud. She's a looker. Fred wants another
pup just like is his part of his
email to us!
Hello Larry and Family
Just a note to wish you and the family a very
Merry Christmas and a HappyHealthy New Year.
Jessie is growing like a weed and doing just
great. She is a live wire that loves to run
and play. When I turn the pointers out in the
evenings to run, Jessie tries to keep up but
she is a little short in the legs. Ha! I have
a squirrel in the freezer that I thaw out and
let Jessietrail it in the backyard. She will
try to chew the tail off of it when she
finds it. Jessie also gives our outside cat
fits at times, she got a little too close a
couple of times and the cat (Whiskey) swatted
her nose for her.I read on your website that
you were going to have some spring litters. I'm
thinking that I would like to get another female
from Carolina Crossfire ifit works out that she
has enough females. Jessie will need a buddy to help
corral these Fox squirrels.

Opal is just a year and a half. If
I had gotten all the squirrels she
treed and I saw, we would have
had eight.

Miss Pitty Pat's Brother & Sister

Here are Miss Prissy and Mister Wilkes.
We will have them until next Saturday.
Wilkes is going to LA and Prissy to
Kansas. Wilkes has a Pontiac emblem
on his head and maybe we should have
named him Turbo. Jim E had one more
pup but I did not get a good photo of
him before Danny Huffmaster picked him
up. He was black with white trim. We
called him Rhett Butler. Butler is at
Mamouth Springs, AR.

Dean's Whelping Box!

Rain, rain, what weather
we are having. Dean bought this
whelping box and I would like to
build one similar. I will have to
find a place to buy that coated
wire. My whelping pens have
served their purpose well...but they are
cold, hard to keep clean, and ugly. I want
to build some new ones more like this one
Dean Wright has bought.

This buck was hit by a truck between
Little Rock and Pine Bluff recently.
I bet it scared the driver to death
thinking he had seen a ghost.

Galla Feist Up North!

Amy Sawdoski sent a new photo of Tweek
with the message that she would like
another Feist. Having a Feist does
that to you ...makes you want another
one. We will hope that Carolina and
Spud will have a small male next litter
and he can move up to Minnesota with
Tweek. Tweek is a fly ball performer
and we are proud she came from out

Here is Amy's message:
Hello Larry,

Amy, Tweek’s owner here. Well, as you
know I just absolutely love Tweek
(Kate Freeman x Max). Tweek is 3.5
years old and doing just great. I’m
thinking that I may get another pup
from you in 2008. What I want tho,
is another small one like Tweek.
Tweek measures 12-13 inches at the
withers. I know that someone mentioned
that Feists on the smaller size aren’t
really bred for anymore. Do you ever
produce pups that small anymore? Tweek
is fixed, so she won’t be having any puppies.
I’m thinking about a male and I just love
Spud. I’d especially love to get a pup with
similar marking as Spud. What do you think?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Amy and Tweek!

Well, we would be a great cross!
Spud is out of Max and a pup of his would
really go good with Tweek!

pure McAndrews Feist.

Olive Oyl is trying out the new dog house I
made from my old truck dog box. She thinks
it feels pretty good.

Little Galla Creek Button decided that
what a big dog can do...a little one
can do too!!

Quiet and Still Game!

If I am very still ...maybe they will
not see me...
well, they may see me for they are
looking right at me....

This is better ....I am out of sight...well, they
are still looking.

I will lay down here and then they
will not see me for sure!
