Of course, we'd be delighted to respond to questions and be a contact person for Shelby's future litters. Our little Peach is still just the best. She hunts grouse very, very well. Doesn't get out of range and hunts best with two people so she doesn't have to quarter so far. Kind of funny, when ever we get to some long grass she wants to hunt Roosters. That pheasant thing is sure in their blood. Good lord, whenever we are driving down the road and she sees a pheasant she comes unglued and her tail about flies off her butt. The other thing I find is that she has lots of stamina. When I'm whipped, bloodied from busting brush, and out of gas, she's still got 3/4 tank left. What a dog.
Might pheasant hunt South Dakota late. We'll see how the weather and snow shape up. Otherwise it's pheasant hunting around here and Ruffs of course.

Sorry we haven't responded sooner, it's been a crazy week. Anyway, Bogey graduated from puppy school with flying colors, head of the class! His first 2 weeks of Canine Good Citizen Class have gone well. Most of the dogs are older so he has to work hard. He learns so quickly. We're working on "shake" now. He seems to be going through a bit of teen age behavior lately, wants to do things his way more often than before but for the most part, he wants to please. He has the sweetest, most gentle personality. Those big brown eyes are full of love when he looks at you. He loves to play fetch now and is doing a great job returning the ball. I attached a few more pictures taken on Sunday.
Hope you get some rest with all your new puppies!!

We had a great time today! Harley is really an incredible dog. You should have seen her work. We went to some private property in Le Sueur County today for a half day of hunting. Harley got her first Pheasant on her own. I shot it at about 100 yards. Long shot. HUUUUUGE Rooster. It's going to taste great tomorrow and then going deer hunting on Friday in Taylors Falls. I've never shot a deer but had a chance to smoke a baby one last year on the last day of the season. No way Hos'e. My first dear is going to have a nice rack on it. Hopefully a mounter. We'll see. There is a big boy in those woods. My buddies got a glimpse of him last fall.
Let me know if the image I attached came through. If not, I will figure out another way to send it to you. Keep up the great work. When I hunt with others......they are very impressed with Harley's incredible work ethic, obedience and kind demeanor. It's really fun to watch. We had 4 guys hunting today. Too bad the other ones didn't get anything ;) LOL.....I drove and brought the dogs. So that bird I shot was solely mine. Tracker and Harley perfectly compliment each other in the field. Fun to watch. You should have seen Harley Grouse hunting a few weeks ago. You cannot teach what she was doing. You can help but nothing like how she works the field and the woods. Hard to explain via email.
Have a great weekend,

Tom & Nancy have done such a great job with Doc and love him to death
Tom & Doc returned to Whispering Pines this summer for a visit. It is always great to see how our pups have matured into beautiful adults. Thanks Tom for stopping in.
Sorry it took so long to respond. I have been sick and haven't checked this email for awhile. I would love to be a contact person. We love our little guy...he is just the best dog we ever had. I would love to brag about your dogs. Feel free to have people contact me. You can use email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
