Dennis, I wanted to thank you for your generous donation
and pass on some of the comments I heard about the free subscription
cards we put on the banquet tables.
One lady was quite excited when she saw the cards. She told her
friend to be certain to take the card and subscribe - that this
was one of the best magazines she had seen regarding hunting
One lady said she hadn't subscribed after her six month subscription
stopped and wished she had. I told her to e-mail you or take
a card and I was sure you would fix her up with a subscription.
I heard several men moving the cards from their tables so there
were enough cards at the next table for their buddies. They said
they get the magazine and told their buddies to order this.
I just wanted to pass on some positive comments I heard.
We are having an event this fall. I kept half of the cards back
for that event and have asked anyone on the committee who receives
the magazine to keep them to show people.
Thank you again. Marcia Battey Cinnamon Teal DU Muscatine, Iowa
Glad the donation was well received. DG
My husband and I met Charlie Whitehurst in the parking lot at
Pit Memorial Hospital a week or so ago and he gave us your website.
We are looking for a yellow lab. We like the looks of the block
head and the lightest shades of the yellow. We actually prefer
a mature dog, but a puppy is not out of the question. Help me
understand what you mean by a started dog. I think I know but
it might be best if I heard it from you. We live on the sound
in Kill Devil Hills and have a 39 acre farm on the Meherrin River
in Murfreesboro that we visit each weekend. Both are Lab paradises.
Could you please let me know what our options might be with you
and what you have available. We are both in our fifties and really
do not plan to hunt this dog, just have and be a friend for life.
Thank you for any help you can offer. Charlotte W
A started dog is one that is an older dog, perhaps a year old,
not a puppy. Usually you would pay a premium for such a dog because
of feeding, boarding and vet bills for the year. But you don't
need to buy new furniture and carpet.
Most people want a dog like this to get a dog ready to hunt that
already has been trained. But what you want is a field trial
washout dog. A dog that can be a companion but is not necessarily
a good hunter. Go to a few websites and explain like you did
with me what you are looking for, as in a companion not a hunting
dog. You are a breeders dream for a great dog that may not just
have the gusto for the trial circuit. Thanks, DG
Dennis, Where can you get on the phone call a publisher and talk
to him? I have the answer- Bird-Dog News. Thank you, Mr. and
Mrs. Jordan at Kojac Kennels are what you said and more. You
can tell right away that Mr. Jordan love's to be with and train
dog's. When I talk to Mr. Jordan on the phone he ask me about
my self and what I wanted in a GSP. When I told him he said I
have a pup in one litter that's a real match for you. He could
not have been more right. I'll keep you up to date on my pup.
THANK'S Dennis you were very help full. Jim Meyers Sun Prairie
Hey Jim, that's one of the reason I make the trips to the breeders
so we all can be better informed. I just got back from a weekend
in Missouri and I did two on Saturday and made it home that evening.
Melrose we'll talk about in this issue... Nitro in the near future.
And I thought everyone liked me.
One of the Mooney brothers of L'escarbot French Brittany Kennels
of Hampton, MN called up and was pissed at my use of FREEDOM
BRITS just before my listing of French Brits... he demanded his
money back for his advertising.. a check was gladly sent.
As an ex Air Force, god & country kinda guy, I did not spill
a tear... good riddens. My feelings was best summed up by another
French Brittany breeder Bill Dillion from Armour, SD who I did
an article on last issue... he laughed when I told him about
Mr Mooney... and said, well I'm and American first a French Brittany
breeder second... enough said. DG

received by the new puppy owners... from a dozen breeders.
