Byam's Fun Monday

Byam is very tired, as 3.5 hours of pheasant hunting took a bit of energy off. Byam had six points. Byam was in the creek holding a bird steady after it ran. And then she was talking as the bird took off running.

Penny 5 got her 1st senior pass on with 3 quail and 1 hen finds (they didn't plant the hen), 1 good retreive (they couldn't hit the other quail),and a back of a shorthair...she left a little early before the gun went off on her 2nd quail so she didn't pass yesterday.

Happy 2nd Birthday!!!!

Happy Birthday to You Dear Byam!
Happy Birthday to Your Sister Penny Too!

Byam looked enjoyed her cake from April's store.

Birthday Birds!

Byam had four points this morning but I did not get photos today. She held the birds great was so tight that I was in front of her nose before it flew and I could not even see the bird on ground. Very windy here today some birds took off as soon as we entered the field out the other end. Good day but every field was full at the hunt club. Byam worked well with the three other dogs two GSP and one griffon. Byam was one of three dogs on point in heavy cover each dog came into the cover from each side. The other three birds she ponted she was the first dog to find the bird and the other dogs backed her on two points. The last point was her point only.
For a photo, see January 2nd photo.
