Funny thing happened last night at about 12:30 am when my dog Jetta woke me and decided she needed to go outside. I put her into the dog yard and was going back inside when I heard this god awful sound of a rabbit in distress. When I returned I saw that Jetta had caught a full sized rabbit. Just then the rabbit escaped and made a run for it. As this rabbit was running at mach 2, and attempting to go down an escape hole near our deck, Jetta caught him again and it was over. I can’t believe how quick that dog was moving! We live in a rural area and there aren’t alot of neighbors around. It was a quiet night though and my parents window isn’t far from where this melee took place. I’m curious to find out how hard they were sleeping. Thankfully it’s getting cold at night and their window was closed.
Fall is here. Although it’s been mild in the Midwest we’ve had some beautiful days. We’re getting a nice long Fall season. As the rut hits its peak more dogs will be called on to track. Here’s a few new pictures I’ve gotten. One is Vimy, whom has sired some of our recent litters. I also attached a picture of a dog from Illinois who came out of our Vimy x Scout litter. His name is Chapek. He resembles Vimy quite a bit. Good luck this tracking season!
