    I picked up my 6 month old pup from the running pen this morning and took her to the woods this afternoon along with 3 other bc females and I cant tell you how impressed I was with her. Ive never in my life owned a dog with as much hunt as she's got at her age and with no more experience than she has.

    I like everything about her. She can run the heck out of a rabbit and do it the way I like for it to be done.

    She didnt get a whole lot of the front because the other dogs have alot more experience than she does but when she did get it she ran it like she was supposed to and when she didnt have it she slotted up just as pretty as you could ask for.

    I tried to watch as much as I could and I only saw her mess up twice. She backtracked one time for about 20 or so yards and she gave an extra bark or two a couple of times on a loss. I know its earlyand I dont want to get my hopes built up too much just yet but if thats all I can find wrong with her on her first trip to the woods, I wish I had some more just like her. :up:

    Im a little worried about her foot speed right now. She runs at or near the back most of time.

    The good part is that it doesnt seem to bother her so she doesnt fight or cut to get to the front. She just slots up and runs the line and for me, thats a good thing. She will pop off every and now and then on a check but nothing major and nothing I cant live with. She might grow out of that with a little more experience and Im hoping that might make her pick up a step or two also.

    I know I need to run her by herself some but dadgum thats hard to do when youve got a job and a kennel full of dogs.
