New Puppy

Today, upland hunting friend Bobby, told me he placed a deposit on a male English Springer Spaniel puppy from Springers Forever. If all goes as planned, we'll have two pointers and a flusher to keep busy next fall. Stay tuned for more pictures. Congrats Bobby! ...

SMWC Picnic

Kay and I recently attended the 2009 Southern Michigan Weimaraner Club Hunt Test and Picnic last Saturday. I've never been around so many Weimaraners in one place and at one time. It was a great opportunity to meet a number of Weim owners, specifically Stuka's...

First Point

When Elsa was around 12 weeks old I purchased a couple of grouse wings at the local Gander Mountain. After tying one to a fishing pole we tried to see if we could get Elsa to show us a few points. At first, it was...

How Fast They Grow

Here's a few images of Elsa during her first 6 months. 7 weeks: 10 weeks: 17 weeks (celebrating Halloween in her own unique way): 23 weeks: ...
