The Vine and Branches!
I guess if I had to have a 'vine' for the dogs in my present Kennel. Spook is the vine. Opal, Spud, Lia, Dobs, Tie, Viper, Cor A Vett, Patch, Sassy--they are branches. My Kennel is putting on growth each season. The young Feist below is Dan--named for his sire, who you see pictured below him. The first video is his great grandmother and the second is of his mother, Lia. Good fruit comes from a good vine. Hope that makes sense to you as it does to me! Dan is not a year old and look what he is doing! Here is the email message I received from Tony Marshall with his photo.
Betty and Larry hope you are both well, Dan and I had a really good hunt this morning. He treed 7 times and we got six. One got in a hole. Our best hunt yet. His best treeing hunt overall too. Dan's biggest problem is not wanting to range out from me very far. He also comes back to me to often I think. A couple of trees today were far enough away I could not see him through the timber, but most of the time he stays well under 100 yards from me. I am really proud of the way he is progressing so far.
