I Litter 7 weeks old

The I litter turned 7 weeks old and has been lucky to spend a lot of time outside. Their favorite game is to play keep away with a plastic bottle. Here’s a couple short videos of the fun.

7 week old puppy pictures have also been posted on the I litter page.

Congrats to Hunter’s Moon Alder

It was a beautiful 60+ degree spring day in Michigan Sunday, and nothing better than running a couple dogs in the Michigan Amateur Hunting Dog Classic field trial. Only grouse and woodcock trial run for hunting dogs, so they don’t have to be fully broke through the flush like the traditional coverdog trials. Alder had 2 solid woodcock finds on his brace, and took 3rd place out of a field of 22 dogs entered. Very proud of our boy.
