We have been getting good reports on the other three pups.
A couple of days ago Woody wrote about Tarah: Five hours ago we did a deer skin drag for Tarah, about a hundred yards. We went down a hill side across a little creek the water, which was about 12 inches deep and about 4 yards across. I used deer skin that I had poured blood on, 30 yards after crossing the creek I hid the deer skin under a big pile of brush. I put Tarah on the trail it took her 9min and 5sec my son and I were so proud of our little Tarah.
Darren Doran reports that things are going well with Theo: Theo is doing good. Karl and Theo have really bonded well. Karl has always liked other dogs and these two play all day together. I make sure Karl gets equal attention and they were both sleeping in my lap in the recliner last night. It's been hot here but its supposed to break Saturday, I might try a short line Sunday night. I have my vet appointment Wednesday.

Bob Yax had Thor on his first training line:
Just a note about our first training line tonight - Thor did great ! - I definitely have to challenge him more on the next one. We did a 40 yard liver drag with a 90 deg turn after 20 yards. It was aged for two and a half hours. We did it about 8:30 tonight. It took about a minute in total. He spent about 10 seconds sniffing and licking at the start point where I smeared a little liver blood, then he took off on the line at a good pace. At 1 point he circled back a few feet and then continued back on the line. When he got to the turn, he didn't even slow down, he made the turn and then went directly to the tail and small chunk of liver I left there. He couldn't have done better - he was never more than 2ft from the line.
Looks very promising - can't wait till the next line !
