Zeke and Zoey Pups

Heath Thomas of LA owns Zeke and Zoey and he has a new litter of pups.  Heath is working off shore and is anxious to get home to see the pups.  Zeke and Zoey are a great line breeding so these pups should be awesome Feists.    Zoey is out of Dobs and Shooter.  She is the exact breeding as our Tie.  Zeke is from Patch and Tie.

 Dan Allee shared these piictures of Piper. Piper is Clues littermate and went to the Porters who only live a short jump from Dan.  Dan is hoping that the Porters and he might try a little squirrel hunting together.  Hope it works out!

Looks Like Fall is Over

It is winter, not by the calendar but the weather has made the choice.  Don't know if I am ready to be this cold.

 Patrick Porter picked up Clue and took him home yesterday.  Looks like Eli and Clue will make good partners in crime!

Clue and Sissie

Clue and Sissie went on one last romp along Galla Lake yesterday.  Clue left today for Gary, TX with Patrick Porter.  Sissie looked for him all over when we turned her out of her kennel after he had left.  We sure hope the Porters will send us pictures of Clue as he grows up.

 Sissie is "full of it".  We really love her.  She is head strong.  I put this check cord on her when she is running loose and she minds like a dream.  Check cord off and she thinks she is the boss.  All dogs need a master.  They will never be the best they could be if they are not disciplined.  Not whipped but made to follow commands.

 Clue is packing up to move to Texas.  Today he went to Galla Lake and ran the beach.

All In

I will try anything once.  I have rebuilt a toyota engine, restored tractors, motor cycles, cars, trucks, built a couple of houses, plumbed a house, wired a few, invented a few gadgets so now I am going to try my hand at wood working.  I am redoing the cabinets in this old farmhouse.  You can see what they look like below and how they are turning out above.  They don't have a much a red tint as it shows.

Oh something else I have done--trained a bunch of squirrel dogs!

Spook is the mother or grandmother of nearly all of our Feists.

Spud and Sparky

Spud and his sister, Sparky, and another pup we had in 2005. Spud was treeing at 6 months.  I am happy if a pup will tree by over a year.  Spud is special.

Happy Veteran's Day

In 2011, we had a huge rain in November.

One Less Critter

One less critter is waiting to eat our garden next year.

Squirrels Are Happy

 Why are the squirrels scampering?  Because it is modern deer season in Arkansas and the hunters are pointing their guns near the ground not up in the trees.

Zip Lines at Work

 Viper's zip line
 Tie's Zip Line
 Spud's zip line

Varmit Dog

 Dobs treed this possum by the zip line.  We like zip lines a lot better than pens.  The Feists have more freedom.  They can see and get more exercise than in a small pen.  This possum vertured to close to Dobs.  She was proud of her prize.

Gum Trees

The Gum trees are the prettiest in the fall.

Pups Need Toys

Sissy and Clue found this old wash cloth I had been cleaning my tractor parts with.  Immediately they had a toy to entertain them.  November 21st Clue will be moving to Texas if everything works out.  We will sure miss him, but Sissy will miss him even more.

Galla Creek Opal

Opal is living up in my big chain link pen.  She even has a dog house with a covered porch.  She is a great squirrel dog.

 I got the top of the crop in trick or treaters.  She came earlier and picked up the walnuts from the ground and loaded them in the bucket of the tractor.  She is a flapper and her Momma made the outfit.   The other girls were too big to join in, but I have them a bag of treats for when they do come over.

Happy Halloween

 Fall is here.  Folks all over drive to see the leaves in the fall. I sit on my porch with this view!
