I wanted to send a update on cedar. This week I decided to hunt him for an hour or 2 every morning before Deer season. Oh also I laid hands on him and prayed for him Monday. Well after that we treed over 20 times and I came home with my limit. Then every other morning we went out and came home with at least 5 everyday. He is still pretty loose on the tree but I could not be happier. On wednesday he also treed a fox and he was solid on him but of course he could see him. Total squirrels taken on him is 29 and we are fired up. Let everyone know that God hears our prayers and he can even bless these little dogs.

Another update on Cedar we went out this morning and had our limit in 2 hours just this week he has brought down 16 bringing his total to 45 since last monday 1 1/2 weeks!! Go Cedar!!! I am so proud I can't contain myself. Now he is still loose but getting better every day. I hate that we are going to have to take off 3 weeks for deer season but I guess we will make it. That will give Sadie time to get to know us. Yea she is now a preacher's dog can't wait to get them out together. Thank you for letting me brag.

Rev. James Lybrand's Cedar
Cedar is out of a Old Rowdy daughter and Shooter. Rev. James Lybrand of Mena bought Cedar from a man in Yell County, Ar. The Rev. grew up hunting with his grandfather and a Feist squirrel dog. He prayed that Cedar would make a good squirrel dog for him. He has had Cedar about a month I believe. Well, Cedar is living up to theReverand's dream. Here is part of two of his emails. The Rev. has bought a 6 month old female from Matt Howell, Sadie, out of Rosco and Dot. So now he has a pair. Seems it is hard to have just one squirrel dog!
