Gone But Not Forgotten
This page is dedicated to those wonderful companions that we have been so blessed to have in ours lives.
It is with great sorrow that I add to this page our precious dog, Harlie. She was such a part of our family. Her sweet mature and keen intelligence will be missed. Harlie taught us how a handler is suppose to handle a dog. Even when we did not know what to do, she did, and she made David look good. Harlie brought home many ribbons for us. We will miss her always.

Harlie is UKC and AKC
registered and earned her HR title at 13 months of age. She earned her
HRCH at 20 months of age.
Harlie's work attitude is excellent. She lives to retrieve and please. She quietly waits in the hunting blind,
but comes to life in the field when sent. This past season, she retrieved
over 200 ducks. She is steady in the blind and an excellent marker. She is very easy to
extremely agile. When she is not hunting, she becomes the family companion and
makes an excellent house dog. We love having her as a
part of our family. She is very
social with people and other dogs.

Indy was very much a part of our family. My wife, Teresa, traveled with her dad to Indiana and picked her out when the litter was only 5 weeks of age. Teresa was fortunate enough to have "first pick" of the litter. Indy caught Teresa's attention because she showed an interest in people more than her litter mates even at that young age. On her drive back to Georgia, Indy sleep at her feet or either played with my feet all the way back. It was a long drive and they stopped at a hotel for the night. This was Indy's first time away from her litter mates and Teresa and her dad feared that it would a long night with little sleep, but Teresa had a small wire crate with her and she put it on the bed with her so that Indy could see her. She took off the t-shirt that she had been wearing that day and placed it in the crate with her. The only time Indy whimpered that night was to let Teresa know that she needed to go "potty". Indy bonded with Teresa that night and as far as she was concerned, she was just an official member of our family. Indy was a great companion and will be missed. Indy passed away due to complications brought on by pregnancy.
HRCH UH Big Creek Gotta Try Cajun Roux (click on name for pedigree)
Indy has spent most of her youth as a constant companion to our youngest son, Zane. She also spent most of the hunting seasons as an excellent partner for David. She is such a great dog, we decided it was only right to send her to a trainer to further her education. Then after only being with professional trainer, Stephen Durrence, for 3 months, she went 3 for 3 to earn her HR. Indy is a beautiful rich dark chocolate that is pure energy and drive. Like her father, GRHRCH UH Dakota's Cajun Roux MH, she runs hard in the field and lives to retrieve. Indy is a marking machine and is running straight lines to 200 yard blinds.
Indy's work attitude makes it so much fun to watch her retrieve. When Indy is not hunting, she makes a wonderful house dog. Her favorite spot to sleep is with her youngest hunting buddy, our son Zane.
