Early this morn, I heard the most horrible noise.  Thought maybe my new heating unit was going haywire...but no we were being attacked!

In A Hole



You will hear me ask Betty if she sees the hole in the tree. At first we don't spot it but then it is spied and we had to lead Tie away!

Finding North

Moss grows more prolifically on the north side of rocks and trees.  You can sure tell north looking at this Oak.

Sissie's First Road Hunt

I took Sissie yesterday and let her hunt with Tie.  I road hunt (drive down a forest road and have the dogs run in front of my truck.  Sissie hunted like a big dog.  Lots of dogs will fall behind and follow the truck if they are used to the long run, but Sissie stayed out front like she knew what to do!

Roxy and Buster


Zack Kraft sent this little video and message about Roxy and Buster.  Zack said he got so excited after vine adventure and the squirrel diving out that he missed the kill.  Buster was right on and Roxy was excited to say the least.
Read Zack's play by play--
Had a lot of fun yesterday. They found a squirrel and treed right out of the dog box. The squirrel went in a nest about fifteen feet up. I shook a vine and the squirrel bailed out landing beside Roxy. She nipped his tail and he went up another tree, bailed out of it and sprinted to the hole in the video. A pile of vines and limbs saved his life as Roxy got hung up and still almost caught him before he made it to his den. Great experience for a young dog and made my day. I was so excited about her I didn't shoot like I should have and missed the squirrel. Zack

More Phillips Family Photos

Of Zeke and Siggie and their pups, who are now all grown up!  Zeke sure looks like his father Spud!!
 Here is Regina's email--

More Hunting Pictures! We still didn't see any squirrels. These are Zeke and Siggie's pups. The Black and White one is Tate (short for Spud's Little Tater Tot,lol) The white bigger one with red coller is Murphy,and the other white one is Cruz. As you can see they are very loved and very spoiled! Colton is sitting on the log with Tate taking a break and Caiden is sitting alone taking a break. A BIG wild sow with piglets got about ten ft from Tate and Murphy! Clif shot and they ran thank goodness! Don't want that momma getting hold of my dogs. We love our Mountain Feist!  Regina
