I wanted to send you a report on Gracee de Plum Creek. She has become a bit of a star hunting dog around these parts over the 7 years of her life. In early December she was the hunting dog for a 4 day quail hunt that was a fund raiser for St Jude's Children's hospital. Two gentlemen from Seattle had the winning bid in the hunt auction and flew here for the hunt.
Gracie was flawless. Since this was a preserve hunt there were no bag limits. Gracie pointed and retrieved 70 quail. The two guest hunters made a very generous donation to the children's hospital and took home a cooler of frozen quail.
Because she is a very spirited hunter with a great nose and great bird sense, who is steady to wing and shot and retrieves to hand, the guests called her "Gracie the Wonder Dog" - and I am thankful I can use her talents to raise lots of money for the kids at St Jude's hospital. This was her third charity hunt for St Jude's.
In a year or two it will be puppy time again. In the past I have thought of 9 years old as the time to start tapering down an older dog so that they can still enjoy hunting a little bit at 11 or 12 and have a bit of a semi-retirement in those older years. So it won't be long until we are in tough about reserving a new puppy. All the best!

Time sure has flown by! Roxi is now 2 1/2 years old and is doing very well. She is extremely birdy and is constantly on the watch for birds. She even watches tv when I have pbs nature shows on. I trained with a pointer group last sumer but she would never lock up when she hit scent and wanted to encroach on the birds. Boy how that changed on wild birds!
She is very driven and determined in everything she does. She is an amazing dog and my best buddy. She runs like the wind and loves horseback riding, cross country skiing, hiking etc. Many people have asked where she came from and I can't say enough about her. If I ever decide to have another I'll be coming your way!

Lori and I wanted to let you know Livie is doing very well and will be 9 months this Friday. We have been having a good time watching her grow and progress with obedience and field training.
She's such a pretty dog and we love her very much. She pointed her first rooster last week and to me she is a natural and casts back and forth searching for scent from the time I started her. Your book has been very helpful.

Gracie is doing great. Had her out, 4 birds pointed, locked up on them like a vault. Thanks for taking such good care of her this summer!

I wanted to say hi, stay in touch and thank you for your help and assistance in everything from my purchase of Kaina de Plum Creek to being there for me with the questions I have had after the purchase. Kaina is a truly special dog. Very smart, great with people and other pets and has matured into a trustworthy house dog. Her field ability is coming along really well also. Thanks again.

Dear Kathy and Bill
Nibs is a great hunter with outstanding nose. He will find wounded birds that other good dogs give up on.
I shot a dozen pheasant and sharptail and only killed two. He found all the other wounded birds! Happy Thanksgiving, Dennis

This will be Bob's last season hunting grouse and woodcock. We just returned from Virginia, we didn't hunt hard. Bob is 14 now and at 76 I too feel a bit worn down. We have not lost our enthusiasm for the hunt. We will still go afield together but we'll leave the hunting to the younger and more capable.
Bob will be impossible to replace but all my bird dog friends tell me that I should prepare for that eventually.
