I'm sitting here trying to not look out the window. There's a little rain today. I know running conditions would be great. I am sure rabbits would be out. Scent would be high and dogs would be smoking the rabbits.
For a minute, I start to think about the guys that aren't working. I imagine Vigar is once again enjoying his retirement out with his dogs. Sunday at the OHBC Hunt, I was talking to Klaiber about how he has more time to run now and that came to mind. I started making a list of all the retired guys I know that run dogs, The Old Man, Klaiber, Vigar, Dennis Kennedy, John Sexton . . .
Then my mind wondered down to the clearcut that I am going to run tonight. Where to start? I think I will just turn them loose on top of the hill at the waterhole. Although, up on the next hill I saw a lot of rabbit sign when the snow was still on. I haven't cut them loose there for a while. Maybe I should . . .
I wonder how the dogs will run after while. Dennis jumped four rabbits the last time out. He sure was rough at the hunt Sunday. He thought he was still in Wisconson running hare. He started to settle down some though. Cole has sounded good lately. I'll bet he will be cranking tonight. I wonder how DK . . .
I just got Jimmy back. I wonder if I should take him tonight. Silly has been running pretty well, so throwing his brother in the pack should be good. Plus, he hunts like crazy and I always want another jump dog. Jimmy will probably . . .
OK, it's time to get back to work. I have wasted enough time on dogs for today. In just a few hours . . .
