Patsy Montana~Singing!




Rodney Porter sent us new photos of
Patsy Montana. First she was singing
at his wife's cat...but now she is
singing at all the squirrels. Patsy
is out of a daughter of Nogo Nell and
Amos Moses. She has the look of the Old-
Time Mountain Feist, as Nogo Nell was a
daughter of Old Rowdy.

Snickers

Craig Adams sent this update on Snickers.
Snickers is out of All Cranked Up and Spud.
She is trailing a scent and looking good.
here is part of Craig's email:
I had Snickers in the back yard this afternoon and thought I would see how her nose would work. I made a drag on the ground about 20 feet long and then pulled it up in the tree about 4 feet; I played with her over that way and when she got a nose full off she went. Guess that nose is pretty strong, cause when she got up on that tree that made my day. lol I petted her up real good. I might have fainted if she had of barked. well i'll quite bragging on her.lol Thanks again, Craig

Buckeye Dog Haulers



Mary Ann with Buckeye Dog Haulers came
and picked up Galla Creek Austin. She
is taking him to Lowell, Mass. This is
a first time for me to use a transport.
I think it will be a good way to send
a pup. Austin was going to be riding
in the air-conditioned van.

Lucas Parks and Hawkins

Sq. Dog Central had an essay contest about
squirrel hunting. The winner was to receive a
pup of his choice and Lonetree was going to
buy him the pup. We were thrilled that Lucas
Parks won and wanted a pup from Galla Creek.
We donated the pup and he is going to have the
money to help with the feed and care of his Feist.

Today I met Lucas Parks' family at Harrison, Ar. He claimed
his pup and I loaned him Belle Starr (my old Mt. Feist that
stays in the house) to assist him and Hawk in their
squirrel hunting. I am anxious to hear how their
hunts go and hope Lucas will write another story
about hunting with an old Feist and hisyoung pup.
Lucas sister's are Allison and Lauren.
Lauren (the younger sister) said "I really like Hawk".
And Hawk loved all of them. Belle seemed excited
like she was going on a vacation!

a cabin in the Ozarks and are vacationing
there. Hawk is going to Harrison, AR
and will be picked up there by Lucas
Parks and then will travel to MO. Belle
is going to stay with the Parks family
a few months...I hope we survive until she
returns. She will be 11 in August. She is
going to help Lucas get his pup, Prissie
and Hawk hunting and treeing.

Few Squirrels Moving In

Red squirrel has been coming to my front
yard feeder and a few are in the Galla woods
behind my house, but not too many. Stuart
was treeing and I put him up as I hated to
shoot one of the few squirrels I have.

Lia and Spud~6 pups~July 9



Lia and Spud have litter of 6 pups--3 females
and 3 males. Lia is the best momma of all the
dogs I have. Today we took the litter to the
vet and he docked the tails and removed the
dew claws. I don't mind docking the tails that
much but I don't have the blood stop stick for
the dew claws and some of these pups had double
dew claws. Grandpa always said that made them
double good dogs.

him to his promise of sending photos

is show me and we hope he will
show us photos of Mellie as she matures.

Intruder

video

Today an intruder ventured into my yard on Galla Creek. The Kennel dogs really were upset. I can pick out the barks. Dobs is a high pitch. Stuart's is deep. The first Kennel has Stuart; then All Cranked up is in the next one; then Jim E Sue, Dobs, Shammy, Opal and Bonnie Sue. Bonnie Sue is like her mother, Spook, she is not wasting her breath when she is in the Kennel. Spook is in the same Kennel as Stuart and I doubt she ever stepped out. Let Bonnie or Spook out and you will see them go....and bark.

Carolina Crossfire

Carolina is out of Charlie Cross' Brownie.
She is from as far east Tennessee as you can
get. Her mother's ancestors came to Tennessee
from North Carolina. I named her in honor of
Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox. He would get
the Red Coats in a crossfire in the Rev. War.
He fought like the Cherokees. Carolina is a
very nice little benchlegged Mountain Feist.
Benchlegged refers to the way her front legs
are formed. Looks like she is standing over
a bench from the front like an Old English
Bulldog. I have bred Carolina to Spud, but I
do not think the breeding took.



Gomer



Stephen Cagle sent pictures of Galla Creek Heath.
He is calling him Gomer. I think the name fits.
He says Gomer is settling into his new life
very nicely. Thanks, Stephen for sharing the
pictures. Gomer is out of Cranky and Spud.

Keeping An Eye on the Target


Once a pup running loose starts treein' good.
You need to kennel him...then when you let him
out he is rearing to go and you are too. I have
put Stuart in the Kennel. He was treed all the
time.

When Will Keen came to pick up Allie~Alamo, Dobs was treed
in the woods of Galla Creek. He went up and tried to
locate the squirrel but the woods were too deep and green
to spot bushy tail.
