    She was lucky to draw you as her master. A lot of folks would have given up on her, considering all you’ve been through with health issues, not to mention the expense. You hung in there and didn’t give up, and now you have a really nice dog to show for it. It was fun to see her run in Dec. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dog cover ground that fast. I’ll get in touch when I’m out after Thanksgiving and maybe we can meet up again.

    Thanks guys. I sure hope it's all worth it in the end. I've spent more money on vet bills, special dog food and training for this dog than any dog I've ever owned. I really believe she has what it takes to be an awesome field trial and hunting dog, and in the house she's just a big lover. I'm really anxious to get her back and run some NSTRA trials with her the end of April and in May. But I've got to get that tail trimmed up!

    She’s a beautiful dog! Well worth the extra expense.

    I'm getting Bree back from the trainer on Wednesday and will be headed back to SD on Thursday. I was out training with them twice this week. Every time I talk to the trainer he says how well she is progressing and what a powerhouse dog she is. Now I'm really anxious to get her back and run some trials. The pic below was taken today of her honoring another dog. Not a great pic but it was all the trainer took of her today.

    My wife has been back in Watertown since the 5th so I'm well aware what's been going on back there. I'll try and bring some Arizona warmth with me!

    Good looking dog there! Maybe I'll be able to make it out and see her hunt this season.

    Bree ran her first NSTRA trial up here in the Mid-North region last weekend. She did a good job of running the fields and was rock steady on her points. Her retrieves needed a little cleaning up and I've been working on that with her this week. She also blew a back so honoring needs some more training. But overall I was very encouraged with what I saw. She needs some more trials to figure out the game and I think she will be competitive. Below is a pic I took of her while doing some training this week. I brought some dead quail home from last weekend trial to use for training. Heading to another trial by Mobridge, SD this weekend and then to Williston, ND the following weekend.
