On the Hunt

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.

Phanny’s First Pheasant

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!
