Today the local paper had an article on the front page about one of my puppies. Anja was adopted by a man who wanted to train her to blood track here in New Hampshire. Legislation was passed on January 1st that allows the use of tracking dogs to find wounded deer, moose or bear. Paul has worked so hard and Anja loves what she is doing. To date she has successfully found 3 deer. Finding downed deer is part of the ethic of hunting. One I truly approve of.
If you have high speed internet access you can read the entire article here but I must warn you that the site downloads very slowly.
Meanwhile, I am feeling so thrilled. I have wanted to breed not just beautiful dogs, but dogs with good health and the ability to serve, whether that service is in the field or in the home.
So congratulations to Paul and his Anja on a job well done and service to the community!
