Hi Phyllis! I just wanted to thank you for breeding such a great dog! We adore Scout. He is so smart and has been very easy to train! He picks most things up in just one 10-15 minute training session! He learned hold and displayed it on command in 5 minutes and 2-3 corrections. His force fetching has been real easy too. I've done all the training myself and it has been awesome! I am very excited to get him in the dove field and duck blind soon. As you can see from the pic he still goes to the office everyday too. A real working dog! Thanks again!

Subject: Hatteras (Mad Hatter x Samantha, August 2014)
I just wanted to give an update on Hatteras. He is a pup from Mad Hatter and Samantha, born in August 2014. Hatteras has a wonderfully goofy and playful personality. He loves playing games of any kind but somehow manages to stay out of trouble. He and I very much enjoy our runs in the mornings and playing fetch every evening. He loves going to the beach to play in the sand and retrieve in the water. Within the last year we decided to let him try dock diving and this has quickly become his most favorite thing to do. He participates in all three disciplines within DockDogs. He has recently earned his Senior title with DockDogs (meaning that he consistently jumps between 15' 0" and 19' 11") and has a personal best jump of 19' 3"! Thank you so much to everyone who had a hand in matching Hatteras with our family! We look forward to getting him a little brother soon!

Hi Deep Run,
I meant to send a pic of Kali on her 13th birthday, but here are a couple from this past weekend. She is still doing well, has lost some hearing, but can still find those bumpers, her favorite activity. A little weak in her rear too, but she is still a happy girl. We just came home from two weeks on the road in the RV, and she did great.

Harper is doing great!! She is the easiest dog I have ever trained and I have had great ones. You can see her thinking, trying to figure out exactly what I'm trying to teach her. Sit, stay (sit means stay) heel, come, kennel, place and force fetch are done and we had fun at the same time! Marking and lining now and looking forward to yet another AWESOME partner from Deep Run to hunt with this Fall. I hope six years from now to get another!!!
Have a nice summer!

Sage (Deep Run Sierra Sage) out of Haze and Gypsy 5-24-16 passed both Junior Hunt Qualifiers at the SNRC doubleheader this last weekend. Both sets of judges complimented her as "a really fine dog".
Thanks again for such an outstanding dog! Picture attached.

This is Billie from the Casey/Dahlia litter. She's such a hit in NYC and is loving every moment in CT too with her two pack mates, a spaniel and terrier. Everyone that meets her comments on her calm and sweet demeanour. They can't believe she's only 5 months old. She's as good as she's beautiful!
Thank you Phyllis!

Subject: Our Sweet Baby
Dear Friends @ Deep Run,
I can only imagine how it must feel to watch these beautiful creatures come into this world, take great care of them until they are 8 weeks old, then say goodbye, so I wanted to let you know that our baby 'Huck' is doing very well.
He has been introduced to all of our family, been hugged & snuggled & kissed all day, and now in his kennel with sweet dreams.
We are grateful for the new addition to our family, and promise to always take great care of him.
I've attached a few photos for you to see. Our Huck is home, and for that we are forever grateful. Huck picture 2

We wanted to send you a few updated pics of Melody !!

She graduated from the intermediate training class few weeks ago, she was the top dog of the class!! The trainer was very impressed with how well she did in both the puppy and intermediate classes!! She is so smart that she would be bored and the trainer would challenge her more, lol !
She loves playing ball in the snow and meeting her BFF, "Kona", at the soccer field every morning !!!
We just have a quick question, we used to give our other labs a multivitamin along with cosequin. Should we be doing that with Melody or is the glyco flex and missing link sufficient.
Thank you in advance for your advice and a SINCERE THANK YOU for giving us such an awesome dog !!
We love Melody more than words can say!

I wanted to reach out and let you know how wonderful Daisy is doing and how much we love her! She gets along very well with our other dog and the two of them play constantly. Daisy has enjoyed a trip to the ocean on a dog beach and swims in my in-law's pool. She has made many neighborhood dog friends and they come over frequently for play dates in our yard. We also have dog park in the neighborhood where Daisy can run free and play. I take her for many long walks daily and she is so well behaved. Daisy sleeps in her cage and takes a few naps per day. She loves the fenced yard and likes to chew on cow hooves in the shade. My children adore her and she plays so well with them. We have taken her to the Vet and she has received her rabies shot, as well as heart worm and flea medications. We wanted to thank you so much for raising such a wonderful pup! I will send you some photos of her experiences. Thanks again!
Subj: Rupert from a Casey-Tutti Litter
I do not know why it took me so long to write to you about how much I love my dog from one of your Casey-Tutti litters, but I am in love with Rupert.
Rupert loves everyone and everyone loves Rupert. He is such a wonderful companion to me. He loves to play with other dogs and with old soccer balls. He loves the water and the snow. He came to live in Germany with me as of Oct 2015 and he is doing very well here, too.
Thank you for this wonderful animal. Here are some pics.

Subject: Update on Moose
Just wanted to share some pictures, and a little update on Moose (Hatter and Lailaís pup). He is doing great, and growing very fast! He is already over 40lbs, and climbing quickly. He has also been hard at work learning to become a hunting dog. Moose has got some great drive and is obsessed with birds. From the day I brought him home he has been training. I started by dragging pheasant wings around the yard and then hiding them, and he always found them very quickly. I trapped some pigeons that he learned to flush eventually. Then I broke him into gunfire while he was doing his retriever trainingÖ First by smacking wood blocks together to simulate a gunshot, then (all in one week) I went from a .22 rifle to a 20 gauge shotgun and then to a 12 gauge shotgun. He is not gun-shy at ALL. In fact he never once reacted to the wooden blocks or any of the guns. I have built up his drive quite a bit, so he is too focused on birds or retrieving to notice.
This week he got his first retrieve of a wild bird. Little did I know it would be a GIANT goose. (I made sure it was completely done moving before allowing him to go see what it was). I didnít expect him to retrieve it, but before I knew it he had grabbed onto one of the wings and dragged it back to me. It was awesome, but I am going to avoid letting him carry geese for now. I donít want to develop a hard mouth.
Yesterday I stocked some hen pheasants to take him on his first official pheasant hunt. He did great! After he flushed the pheasants, he sat there watching them fly until I shot themÖ Then he ran to where they fell and brought them right to meÖ Perfect! He is a very smart dog and definitely way ahead of his age as far as training goes. I canít wait to hunt with him more seriously next year.
My only question at the moment is about food. I have been feeding him 1 cup, 3 times a day. I read your instructions saying as the pup gets older I should be feeding him more, less frequently. When do I make the switch? He is almost 4.5 months old, and seems to be in great shape physically. I definitely want to keep him lean and healthy. At the moment he looks like he may be just slightly heavier than where he needs to be.
Thanks again, and I hope you enjoy the pictures!
