It is a stunning Autumnal day and we have just got back from a cracking session with Jay jay, Tinks and Ellie on the shoot ground.
Jay Jay is such a fast hunting dog and yet even though she covers the ground with such speed, one knows with confidence that the ground she has covered will no longer hold any birds as she would have found and flushed them.
She not only does a fantastic job but also looks stunning whilst doing so and one certainly has ones adrenaline pumped up after working her as she is like a thoroughbred, just wonderfully on the edge :)
But unless we can repeat this performance at a trial, it won't mean a thing.
So fingers crossed she and myself get it right on our second trial of the season as we got it wrong on the first.
Though give her her due she still came away with a COM, bless her!
Tinks and Ellie keep amazing us and proving that you can keep two pups out of the same litter and they will take note of what you ask of them and focus on you just as well as one puppy would.
We still have yet to get cracking on their training, hardly touched them and yet today we had Gary with Ellie hunting next to Tinks and myself, and they took no notice of one another. We really do need to start training them though!
Extra delight was watching the Ospreys circling above, their wing span is huge and yet they fly with so much grace.
A perfect end would have been to work Mia, but she has a lump on her leg and so we have to rest her, vets orders :(
