Rogue is in Virginia

So I got it wrong... I thought the stud dog owner said West Virginia, but it turns out that he said "Western" Virginia, near Kentucky. Aaagghh! An easy mistake though! :) Dave drove part way and met up with Blake's owner Danny in Barbourville, KY at Tommy Bay's place. (I had to work.) Tommy is the owner of FC Goersch's Red Bull, the sire of DeeDee's first litter (5/06). Danny had brought Blake along so that Dave could check him out. Dave thought that Blake was a very nice looking dog, and with reports that Blake is producing smaller pups who are placing well in field trials, we are excited about the potential for some great running pups who have Mom & Dad's good looks & great personalities. Keep your fingers crossed!

Taking Rogue to meet FC Willie's Bad Boy Blake on Wednesday!

This is my first blog entry to update everyone on our anticipated litter out of Westside Rip Roarin' Rogue. We'll be taking Rogue to West Virginia on Wednesday to be bred to Blake, a handsome tri-color male who has produced some excellent beagle pups with good conformation and running ability. Rogue will stay over until Sunday so that she can be bred 2 or 3 times. Then the wait begins! Check back in here and we'll let you know how things are going and hopefully share some pics of Rogue's first journey into motherhood. Til then!
