Button and Stitch

These are Brown Sugar's half sisters, Button

and Stitch (larger pup). Fred Allen took

Stitch home to Ardmore, Ok. Sunday. We are

keeping little Button. She looks just like her

Momma, Carolina Crossfire.

Brown Sugar

I had Brown Sugar out two days. She needs
some weight on her and I was trying to give
her all the food she wanted, but she stayed
treed all the time. Below is how you get her
off the tree. Even an old dog can not pull
her away when she trees. Bell treed down the
hill from her on another squirrel but little
Sugar held her tree. I had to put her back in
the Kennel as there are not many squirrels
here on Galla Creek and if I had left her out.
There would not be any! I hope my new
pups out of Carolina and Spud turn out
like this, too!

Seattle Slew

Brown Sugar and Slew are running out. Sugar
treed several times yesterday. Slew did not
actually tree but she was there and I let her
carry this squirrel back to the house. I think
she will be treeing this week. She is a little
behind Tack, Wayne.

Be glad when the leaves are gone

It is hard to find a squirrel in the leaves.

Won't be long until we only have bare limbs.

Tweek~ Far Out Fly Ball Feist

Tweek is what we call a Kemmer Feist. Her
ancestors go back to the Kemmer Feist that
Robert Kemmer raised. She also has Old
Mountain Feist blood in her veins. We could
name her ancestors 10 to 15 generations back.

Her mother's name is Kate Freeman. We gave
Kate to our friend Dennis Freeman, who did
heat and air conditioning work with Galla Creek
Arky. Dennis had a heart condition and died
before he reached the age of 50. His widow gave
Kate back to us. She is owned by a nurse at
Morrilton, AR now. We raised a litter of pups
from Kate. We sold a male to the nurse. The
yard man left the chain link gate open and her
Feist was ran over. She came back wanting the
same line. The only one we had was Kate Freeman,
but we could see that Kate would be loved and cared
for like a queen and we sold Kate to her. She had the
litter of pups that included Tweet! Tweet went north
to live and chase the fly ball. She is good at it too!

We are proud of all our Feists and are so glad to have
folks that will still share their lives with us. Kate is
a nationally recognized fly baller! When she runs her
master says "WHERE'S THAT SQUIRREL?" and she
takes off. In these photos she is searching for an old
varmit in the wood pile. You can tell she is persistent!

Hello Renfroes!
Here is just a little hello from your Most Northern Feist, Tweek!
Tweek just turned 3 this year and she is ALL that I could have

ever wanted in a “daughter”!Tweek has grown into a Far-Out
Flyball dog and is now ranked as the #3 Treeing Feist playing
Flyball in the Nation (but the #2 is actually a mix that has been
called a Feist so we don’t really count her). Her fastest time
so far is 5.34 seconds but I know she’ll speed up. She has stayed
a tidy size; 13.5 inches at the withers and has a Super Wonderful
personality. She tries in earnest to get the neighborhood squirrels.
In fact, when we are racing, all I have to say is “Where’s the Squirrel?!”
and she gets super fired up!

Any hoo here are some recent pics of our trek to my Uncles home
in Western Wisconsin. Tweek was non-stop running around all day.
Thank you again for bringing such a wonderful girl into the world!
Take Care – I visit your website often so I’m always excited to see

new puppies!
Amy and Tweek Tweek!

Mississippi Saddie Bell

Lee Moore sent us a peak at Saddie (we called her
Sweetie). She is out of Opal/Spud. He sent along
this email. We want to thank Lee for letting us see
her again! Hopefully she will be helping him find
the squirrels soon! She is still a little small for that.
Hi this is Lee just wanted to drop you a line and let you
know that Sadie is doing fine. She is really growing and as
I type she's under the computer desk at my feet sleeping.
Something has bit her on her bottom jaw one day while in
her pen. I'm thinking maybe it was a non poisonous snake,
she hasn't felt bad at all but it did swell some and has been
draining. I think she will be fine and hopefully learned a
valuable lesson. Maybe she will leave the bad ones alone.
My sister emailed yall some old pics right after I got Sadie
she will be home next weekend and hopefully take some
new ones. Went squirrel hunting last Saturday and killed 4
that morning and 4 that evening not to bad since I was using
22 and so many leaves, accidently shot a black one I like to
leave them. I really enjoy your blog page. Well better go, hope
all is well with yall. God Bless,
Lee Moore

It will always remind us of him and his kind

Galla Creek Remington Treed!

Remington is out of Nogo Nell and Baby Face Nelson.
Steve Roark owns him. The man we sold Remington to
lost his house in a fire and because of the disaster he
got rid of most of his dogs. This photo from Roark looks
like Rem is treed in a Louisiana swamp to me...I bet
there are some big snakes down there!

Steve McAndrews & Carl Harris

This Carl Harris (older) and Steve McAndrews.
Carl lives in Ellis Grove, ILL. and Steve is from
Stuart, Iowa. Ellis Grove is 7 hours from me and
Steve is 7 hours north of there. I drove the 7
hours and got my new pup Stuart. He was born
on my birthday, June 16...which is Steve McAndrews
birthday too!

Galla Creek Stuart

I worked with the young male pup I
picked up in Illinois this week. Steve
McAndrews raised this pup out of
Raider and Pain. Raider is a half
brother to Spook and Max. Pain is
out of Pete. Pete is a half brother to
Radio Flyer. I named my pup, Stuart
after the town McAndrews lives in.
Anyway, I am proud of the way this
young pup is doing. I was working
him on a squirrel tail on a fishing pole.

West Virginia Jack & Dixie Diamond

Jean Shrewbury emailed us from Virginia that they
made it home just fine with Dixie Diamond. I was
worried about the long car ride she was going to
take. Dixie and Jack are getting to know each
other. I predict that within two months Dixie
will be bossing West Virginia Jack around!!
Here's are her first installment of photos of
Jack and Dixie. The other picture is of Jean with
Jack and his brother, who belongs to her father.
Jean's Dad lives in West Virginia and that is where
her Jack came from. We call Jack a Blue Ticked
Feist and have always wanted one to call our own.
When Dixie and Jack start to have a family...in 2
or 3 years, maybe our wish will come true and we
will get a little Feist from Virginia, Shenandoah Valley
area. We are hopin'!
Hello Betty & Larry,

We are back home in Virginia and settling in with
Dixie. Jack did not immediately take to the idea of
having another dog share his territory. They have
settled down now and play constantly. We are
keeping a close eye on them.

Dixie traveled like a dream. We never had a
minute of trouble either in the car during the drive
or when we stopped for bathroom breaks. She
really surprised us by staying in the travel
kennel and not crying. I will send you some
pictures of her and Jack as soon as I can get
some good ones. They are constantly in motion
so it is hard to get a clear shot.

I can’t thank you enough for allowing us to
purchase one of your pups......
I will periodically send you pictures of our two dogs
and let you know when they breed.
We are holding Jean to her promise for
pictures of the dogs and excited about the
Dixie blood going home to Virginia!

Carolina's Pups

Here are Carolina's pups. They were born Sept. 15.
The Buck family gets the one with the little star on
her back. We are keeping the one with the most
white on her head and one of the other two. A
man from OK called and we are letting him pick
between the two solid color pups. We think he will
take the bigger solid one and we will get to keep
the little one that looks exactly like Carolina Crossfire.
Carolina is out of Charlie Cross' Grand Sq. Champion,
Brownie. This line of Bench legged Feist originated
in North Carolina near the Tennessee border. The
names of the pups are Snap (most white), Ziggie (ZigZag
star on her back), Stitch (larger solid one), and little
Button! All four were females! Our luck is turning
The bottom two photos are of Brown Sugar (Tuskegee)
out of Carolina and Peanut. She just turned a year
old and all she thinks about is hitting the woods.

Pups from McAndrews in Iowa!

Siggie loves the new pups from Iowa. She was
carrying one around by the neck and finally we
told her to put it down. She went over to sit and
pout and here they came to console her! Dogs
love her and we do too!

Grand Sq. Champion Raider

Raider is out of Otis and Dummy. He is
a half brother to Max and also on the
other side he is a half brother to Spook.

Our Own~Judge Roy Bean & Lily Langtry!

Roy Bean, the "Hangin' Judge", (c. 1825 – March 16, 1903)
was an eccentric U.S. saloon-keeper and Justice of the Peace
who called himself "The Law West of the Pecos". According to
legend, Judge Roy Bean held court in his saloon along the
Rio Grande in a desolate stretch of the Chihuahuan Desert of
west Texas.

Throughout the 1870s, Roy supported his family of 5 children
by peddling stolen firewood and selling watered-down milk.
His notorious business practices eventually earned his
San Antonio neighborhood the nickname Beanville.

County commissioners, eager to establish some sort of local law
enforcement, appointed him as the justice of the peace for
Pecos County. Roy packed up and moved north from Vinegaroon
to a small tent city on a bluff above the Rio Grande named
Langtry (in honor of George Langtry, a railroad boss who
had run the Southern Pacific Railroad's tracks through it).

The name also happened to belong to a beautiful British
actress, Lillie Langtry. Roy had read about her and
became enchanted with her. Roy built a saloon he named
the Jersey Lily (her nickname) that also served as his home.
He hung a tattered picture of Miss Langtry behind the bar.
Above the door he posted signs proclaiming "ICE COLD BEER"
and "LAW WEST OF THE PECOS." From there, Roy Bean
dispensed liquor, justice and tall tales, including that he himself
had named the town in honor of the actress. He was elected
to office in 1884 and re-elected many times.

His court methods were arbitrary and comical and inspired
many outrageous tales. His court paraphernalia included only
one revolver, one law book and a pet bear. One story has him
finding a dead Chinese man with a gun and $40 in his pocket;
since he purportedly knew of no law against killing a "Chinaman",
he proceeded to fine the dead man $40 for carrying a concealed
weapon. He also knew next to nothing about the law; he reputedly
thought habeas corpus was a profanity. It is said that, when
performing marriage ceremonies, he always ended the service
by saying "And may God have mercy on your soul."
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Troy's Judge Roy Bean

and Lily Langtry!!!

These two young dogs belong to Troy Vance...they
are out of Zipper and Radio Flyer. Here in Sept.
2007, they are treed in Troy's squirrel pen. Troy
lives in Hawkins TX. Zipper is a half sister to
Spook. Radio is a brother to Dummy, Zipper and
Spook's mother.

Remington and Sparky!

This is Remington and Sparky when they were just pups.
Steve Roark owns Remington~out of Nell/Nelson. He bought
him from the guy we sold Rem to as a pup. He emailed us
yesterday about old Remington....here is what he says:

Got up this morning and Remington was treed in woods, 2
housecats, came in at lunch and he was treed in thewoods
on a huge den tree, a little cooler weather and he will
be ready to go out on his own hunting.
