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 . . .

It's Always Better With Friends

We ran over five hours this morning and the dogs ran great. We were in a huge area with several clearcuts of different ages. It was a beautiful summer morning with a temperature of 50° when we started. We were running a bunch of dogs (I think 16) and I heard a lot of them have a moment of stardom. 

Mike Vigar and Chris Hopkins came down to join me running dogs this morning. Both are regulars and make running dogs a good time. The dogs are important and we all listen and pay attention (at least some of the time). Most important though is just having a good time. As much as I like field trials, nothing beats a morning like today--three guys out enjoying the running just having fun.

I ran Butcher, Kurly, Cole, Gypsy, Chip and Dennis.
