New pics of the pup's

Squirt is 16 wks now and Bo 14 wks. At the present rate of decay I believe I'll have to shoot both tomorrow! Big smile Last week they ate two pairs of my shoes, My three best pipes and scattered a half pound of pipe tobacco all over the living room. Today was much better, they only ate my cell phone holder, the TV remote and the DVD remote. Couple days ago they ate the power cord off my computer and the wire that hooks the DVD to the TV. Puppies, ya gotta love'em! It's the law!

They both got a new collar yesterday, their first. Bo promptly ate Squirts off. Squirt got two new collars! They also got new check cords but they stink. Can't find good rope to make them out of here. here's a few new photo of my little angles! Evil! Taken out happy timing behind the house.

Both of them and some deer:

I think this is Bo if I remember right.

This has got to be Squirt.

Squirt out next to the house

Both of my little Evil! in the old creek bed next to the house

I have discussed the possibility of a lobotomy for both them with my vet and he agrees it may make them smarter!

Squirt likes to sleep under the covers on my belly; Bo sleeps under there also but on my feet! Otis sleeps on the couch and has washed his hands of the whole thing! A dog with brains! Yes

These are Elhew pups from OK and TX. I know of the fellows you speak of in Coolidge but don't know them personally. Have run into them in the field down around Oracle Junction chasing Gambles and Scales. I hunt with only a few friends because most land here is public and you cannot give away your favorite spots. I am also very careful about hunting with new people because of saftey. Two of these pups are for my closest partner because he gave me their mom when I lost their grandpa due to a lightning strike while hunting a few years back. I'm keeping a male and the other is for the Sire's owner. Here is a pic of me hunting with Snow and JJ. She had this litter and JJ is my 2 year old. He is a real star!

If we don't get some rain this winter, I fear the birding will be poor next year. I might have to take thes guys up to Montana to visit with my brother and get after some huns and sharp tails.

Boy you got some good lookin dogs there! Love those pointer's. My last one turned 15 last spring and spends most his time on the couch. Pork Roll grandson on top and Rails Buck grandson on the bottom. Brfore him I had several Mississippi Rifle dog's. Needed to run them off horses, boy did they go. Had a Doublecross Slim dog that was really nice and a magnificent Elhew that I trained for another guy.

Here's my old Rex and two of his kids, Kate and Pete. Rex center, Kate left, Pete right.

Tell me how you handle the cactus down there? I ran Otis down in So Cal a couple years ago and couldn't keep the stuff off of him.

When they are young they learn fast about the cactus but there is really no way to keep them out of it. Snowflake has torn her pads up so many times now that she wears rubber boots every time out. Otherwise, she would only make it a few miles. JJ learned the hard way by trying to clear a 20 foot patch of prickly pear. He only made it about 15 feet. I had to pull needles out of him in places you don't want to think about. He is older and smarter now. The biggest problem comes when a hit bird lands in some cactus. The dogs will try to go right in after them. My wife usually spends about an hour on each dog when I get home removing needles with bright light and tweezers. They think she is just making over them and they love it. The worst thing about these pointers is the long tails get torn up at the tip in the cactus then come home and sling blood all over the furniture and walls. Sometimes I have to tape the ends of the tails for a few days.

I worry more about the snakes than the cactus. One of my partner's dog got hit last year and while the dog was OK, it cost him over $3000.

I can't believe how tough hunting dogs are. Wish I was so tough.

That gun is driving me nut's. What is it? Not a Parker re-production is it? Friend had one in 16 years ago and I loved it. Not much of a friend tho. Wanted to trade him a fine Rem 870 Special Field and he wanted money to boot. Laugh

Been shooting AyA Matadors for a lot of years now. Presently my 16 ga but hoping to get my 28 restocked one of these days. Also had a 12 and a 410 that were stolen.

The gun in the photo of the pups is a guild gun from Germany. 12 ga. with some really great engraving of a hawk chasing a rabbit on one side and a couple of ducks cupped and ready to come in on the other. It was a gift from a really great man. I will always have it. Swings like a dream and very tight. Wish I knew who the maker was. It has the feel of a Merkle.
