    New addition to our family!

    Ch Cherrystone Clams Casino JH X Ch Castaway Wilcin Von Harwil..........and we are the proud owner of Cherrystone Fujian Baroque.(Tea was the litter theme) . He`ll be home in Feb. I`m going to be spending more time enjoying my first love, which was horses and dogs. And a little less time with koi for awhile. Louisville in May will be my last show.
    He`s 5 weeks old and already on birds......

    Not actually Troy! We have friends to board the horses, and they are not going to be the Saddlebreds I used to ride!! Just nice field hunting horses.

    The biggest expense with the dogs will be trainers and handlers. But you only need those for awhile. Then I`ll do all the work!

    Actually.....that MIGHT be his butt sticking up.......LOL

    Now that's a dog that could come in handy around the farm.....

    $5000?

    Probably save ten times that in fish.

    Hate birds (other than Charlie Macaw) love dogs.

    Brett,
    Weims were originally bred to hunt and take down large game. Now they mostly point/flush/retrieve.
    Alot of breeders are focusing on breeding the "hunt" back into them , and taking out some of those cuddly William Wegman traits that have made them into the neurotic house dogs people own now.

    There are some amazing bird dogs out there......I`m surprised more koi breeders don`t use them.

    Nice looking pup congratulations I have always had bird dogs my best hunting dog was a
    Brittany spaniel Used to shoot 40 pheasants a year but that was 45 years
    ago . Now just 2 lazy lay arounds that share the cauch with me a yellow lab and a golden retriver. I bring my pups home at 6 weeks and give them 1/2 asprin if they howl at night. I prefer to train my own dogs but always
    send wife with them for obedience training.
    Regards
    Eugene

    Eugene,
    Weims aren`t the favorite of alot of bird dog enthusiasts. They prefer Brittanys and GSP. But I just love the breed , we have an 11 year old now. But never did much hunting with him.
    I`ll work the dog with my mentor for awhile, and see what they think about sending him out for training. It may be that he doesn`t need it. I am going to show him myself in his first few conformation shows, after that he may need to go to a handler depending on what shows he needs to go to.
    I care much more about hunt tests and field trials than conformation shows. I love being outside and watching a dog do what it was bred to do!
