Missi's lil Branko Jyp opened Saturday morning for the first time!!!! I took the whole clan to Watensaw, this was the first time Missi was able to join me with Ki-Ki (her hound). CHase, hunter, Twister were in race and took the bunny down and back in between two fields, then accross th road (dern near ran under the truck). When they hit the big woods on the other side of the road Ki-Ki opened. I have to tell ya, it was not pretty, sounded like somebodyt had her strung up ut there!!! But she was doing it!!! Of course I was not on top of them (too fast for me) but I will say that she was tonguing correctly, or when she scented... she told the rest about it. SHe was not just out there barking. We had a cpl more races, she sounded out on them as well. Then we had the oppertunity to get a swamper going, was real wet when they struck, took about 5 minutes to get him moving... then out of hearing (except for that schreek of a bark :thumb:. Then back toward me... they had a breakdown... I am guessing about 75-100 yards away... and be damned if Ki-Ki did not get the check... she barked twice... then the whole clan joined in and they were off again. I told Missi that I would have to give that to her, even though I did not see it, I could tell what happened. I believe Missi is a bit more excited about running the hounds now that hers is out there with them!!!!
