Hello Galla Creek,
I could not be more pleased with our Hagen. The picture I am including shows the results of today's 2 hour hunt (3 squirrels). We should have had 2 more but that was my fault not his. We have had very few hunts where he did not tree at least once. We are working on consistency and staying on the tree longer each time. Hagen is also such a people dog that everyone who meets him falls in love with him.
Maggie is also doing well. I do not have any pictures of her that are not a blur because she is always moving, (fast). She trails some and has located a tree with a squirrel in it but she only reared up on the tree and would not bark. She just needs more woods time.

Another good one gone!
Tim Pennington of Kentucky sent word that Pepper had passed away. She was a fine Mountain Feist squirrel dog--born and bred in the Ozarks! Here is Tim's email:
Hello from Kentucky
Hope this email finds you all doing good. Wanted to let you know that one of the best squirrel dogs ever has passed away. I went to feed the dogs Christmas day and found Pepper dead. She was a really great squirrel dog and we had a very good time hunting with her. My two sons were able to
grow up hunting with her. I want to thank you again for selling her to me she was the real deal. Best I can tell she was 13 years old.
Pepper made squirrel champion in three hunts. I raised one litter of pups from her and am not sure what ever happened to them some did start treeing at an early age. A good friend has gone on but will never be forgotten. I still have two dogs but don't get to hunt them as much as I use to. If I ever need another dog or pup you will be the first man I call. Thanks again for a great dog and great memories.

Max ("Fat Bob" Lia X Spud) and some of my Grandchildren after a Squirrel hunt on 12-22-2012. This hunt lasted about an hour. We were treeing so fast we didn't have time to stop and take a break. It caused one of us to have an accident!!

Here is Zack's email--
Roxy really set the woods on fire this morning! She treed one by herself with no help. I heard her whining and found on a tree. I saw the squirrel and waited for her to bark then shot it for her. She's whined at a few already but this was her first good bark, and at 6 months I couldn't be more proud. We have some refining to do, she also jumped a deer, some wood ducks, birds and lots more. Pretty much everything living in the woods felt her presence, we had a lot of fun. Buster treed a few more but we couldn't find them.

God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling.
Psalm 46: 1-3

Renfroes--We stayed up in Sulfur bottom last week and the squirrels were ugly to us but the crappie was hungry. Caught these in two trips and they sure fried up good in the ole black pot Troy Vance

My name is Rodney Fontaine. I bought a little from you a few years ago. Right after I bought her I became disabled and had to give up hunting all together. I sold Tressie to a man in Texas. He hunted her the first year he got her with his other dog. The second year he hunted her as the lead dog and killed over 100 squirrels over her. I got her treeing and won bench champion with her the first year I had her before she was a year old.
I was thinking about you and wanted to send you and your wife a Merry Christmas.
God bless you. Owning that little girl was one of my favorite times. I have had one knee replaced and will be getting the other one next year.
