It's cutting them loose and having the pack run the rabbit until it gives up and goes in a hole or gets caught. And although the dogs usually don't catch it, they run like they want to. Just me and my pack of hounds, in any condition, on any day, in the roughest places I can find . . .

Welcome Back Gypsy!

The dogs jumped a rabbit out in front of the house and made a small circle.  They got up in the field and had a check.  I heard Gypsy let out a bawl and away they went.  They headed through the big woods and across the fence.  They had a check crossing the fence and Gypsy hardly slowed down, going through the dogs and down the hill.

After being out of play for a while raising pups, I took Gypsy out for the first time in a few months.  All I can say is it sure sounded good to hear her back in the race.  She wasn't really sharp.  She didn't run that much of the front.  She only jumped one rabbit.  Her bark wasn't that loud. But I got to run Gypsy again last night.  

When you haven't been able to run your best dog for a few months, it sure feels good to hear her back in there.  I just know the races will be a little better, lasting a little longer with fewer checks.  And the best part is I can run her again tomorrow and the day after and the day after.  

Welcome back Gypsy.  I hope you are ready to run.  :)

I ran Gypsy, Butcher, Dixie, and Rep.  It was 32 degrees with clear skies and no snow.
