Yesterday we celebrated three years with Sailor with a nice pheasant hunt. He was joined by Bliss and Phanny. Tasha stayed home with the puppies. We’ll have to make it up to her.

The entire pack when we returned home. Tasha is on maternity leave so she wasn’t at the club with us. She enjoyed the birds once we got home.
Today marked a milestone for our Golden Retriever pup, Phanny –
Saturday Night Redtail Phantom. We took her for her first pheasant hunt. Initially, she thought we were just out for a stroll, enjoying a pleasant December day. To her surprise, there was a nice rooster pheasant in the grassy cover.
A nice day for coming of age. Well done Phanny!
