We were expecting a litter in January 2021, but the breeding wasn’t successful. We are hoping for our next litter to arrive late this spring or early this summer. We don’t take any deposits until the puppies are born and we don’t maintain a callback list or a waiting list so each litter is reserved first-come-first-served.
I grabbed hold of her and removed bundles of quills as quickly as possible to prevent her from driving any of them any deeper.
Is wasn’t until after I had removed dozens of quills from her nose, muzzle, tongue, mount & gums, and chin that I paused to snap a couple of pictures. She went into that porcupine with her mouth wide open and had the damage to prove it. No other dogs suffered the same fate and we avoided Kota’s loop completely on our way out
Jack is a Tick X Zack pup I kept from last spring with the intention of bringing him into our breeding program. He is off to a fantastic start on chukar. He seems to have a great nose, ranges well, pointed the first covey he pointed, and has eagerly retrieved the birds I have shot. With other dogs he is also backing naturally. I am really excited to see him develop into a mature hunting companion. I haven’t had him out for ducks and geese yet but he loves water retrieves, so cold, icy conditions may be the only thing that could put a damper on those festivities.
