For the Love of My Galla Mountain Feist

Since I moved to Galla Meadow, I have had to haul water to all my dogs and it is just not the same as having water on tap. I have been working on my old well for three weeks. Bought a deep well pump off Craig's List. Said a little prayer as I put new pipe in my well and hooked it up. Had to run new electric to it. Now I have 4 freeze proof hydrants I am installing. One by one corner of the corner of the garden and near Tie's run. One will be by my old garage and by the two big pup pens I built out of chain link. I will put new whelping kennels in by next spring. One near Betty's chicken pen so she will not have to carry water and one way back by my big training pen and near Spud. I will build a fish cleaning stand back there.

I am well on my stopping me now. Pump worked and I have lots of pressure!

My dogs are going to love it as well as Betty's chickens!

Hagar Goes Fishing

Hagar belongs to the Rutledge family of LA. Marc sent this photo of Hagar with his son, her master. When our pups get here one will be named Ishmael (hopefully and black and white male from Dobs and Spud), Ish will belong to another of Marc's sons! Most families get a Feist and then they want another one.
Here is what Marc had to say--
I sent you a picture of Hagar and my oldest son. We was fishing at night. She just loves to go anywhere with me. Marc

Eleazar IS Clicking!

Wade Granberry posted this photo of Elie on Facebook. She trailed up a squirrel and treed it. Wow! She is out of Patch and Tie. Patch's second litter is due the end of March. Here's what Wade said:
The little girl trailed this squirrel 200 yards by herself. She really coming along!

Feist Size Dog House For Sale

I have some good Feist Dog houses for sale. These have an overhang so water does not get into the house. Also, they are made of WOOD not plastic! So much warmer and cooler. Better than an igloo by oodles!

Galla Creek Romeo

This Romeo out of Old Belle and Max. He has been gone several years. Romy was killed by a pack of dogs.

Zipper and Jack's Three Pups

Zipper and Jack had 3 pups, two girls and one male. We get a little female called Zippo. Sherry and Troy's little girl is Ziggie. Troy says he will sell the little black male. He looks a lot like Jack is out of Spook and Shooter. Zipper is closely related to Spook but I actually forget her sire and dam. Can't wait to get Zippo!

Steve Granberry's Eleazar--Elie

Elie is coming along. She is owned by Steve Granberry and is out of Tie and Patch. I am pretty sure that litter was born last August! She is a sister to Marc Rutledge's Hagar.

Chaney ~~ Tie Pups

We get three of these pups...yippity, skippity. Two females and one male.

Generation to Generation

Below are three generations of Galla Feist pups. The photo below is Opal's litter. Now I don't know which of the four pups is actually Opal. We named the 4 Diamond, Crystal, Opal, and Pearl.
The pups on the patch work quilt are Chaney's brothers and sister. Opal was the mother of this litter.
This litter is from Chaney. Born just a few days ago. Not much difference in looks to the other two litters. Traits are passed from generation to generation. When using line breeding most of the pups will look alike. You can see this by just looking at the 3 litters they are all similar.

Tiger and Rusty

Tiger and Rusty are half Cur/Feist squirrel dogs that were trained by my cousin, Rick. He sold Tiger over a year ago and this week Ronnie Abels sent me a photo of a great hunt with Tiger. The picture below is of Rusty. Rusty was bought by a retired State Trooper from MS. He also owns my beloved Sparky. Great to hear about dogs that came from here! Thanks for sharing.
