Work maketh the Man!
Well not much bloodhound news Im afraid......still unsure about Barvičkas pregnancy but will know more in a week or so.
They are loving the cold icy wether and Ive lost count of the number of times they have skidded and crashed on the ice!
Tennants been having a heck of a good time over the holidays, with 4 shoots to attend!!!
Each day hes been more and more confident in his role and his work, and did the most amazing blind retrieve in 5 foot high gorse, on a bird shot by Andrew,which landed at a distance of about 80 yards. I nearly cried with pride!!
His steadyness is unbelievable and hell sit through anything without a murmur or twitch of a muscle.....even when some rather badly trained (actually they are UNTRAINED!) unruly "other" dogs are running into every shot and generally behaving badly.
We felt todays shoot day really was the one that made all his training pay off. here he is on the first drive of the day, in the frosty gorse, watching his "Dad" and waiting for a bird.
