I thought you might like this video link below I took today (Jan 25). Angus flushed a hare, flushed a second hare which I miss and then returns to track and flush a second time so I can finish it. It is Great bit of dog work!
While you sent me some lovely photos of the snow in your area, we have been frying over here. Last week we had five days of burning hot weather; 43 - 46 deg Cel. The countryside has dried out to a tinder dry state with everywhere now a fire risk.
Last Friday 17th Jan 2014, everyone in my area was ordered to leave our homes due to a large out of control bushfire just 1.5 km down the road. The 90-100 km an hour winds were causing great havoc for the firefighters sending ember attacks everywhere. John Stott came and took the dogs, Graeme and his son came and took the cars, cats and personal items and I stayed for as long as I could before leaving.
This fire and many others were started by huge lightning strikes late Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. Luckily for our area the wind changed direction 180 degrees and sent the fire back on itself. We were given permission to return to our homes on Saturday about 11.00 am.
Reports are that no homes were lost, no animals affected, but there was about twenty kilometers of farm fencing destroyed, and some six hundred acres of bush, plantations and farmland burnt.
We are receiving light gentle rain at this moment, 40 points [10 mls] predicted, we need every ml of it.
Must go and give my two pups their midday meal, they are twelve weeks old and doing great.
Talk again soon
Regards to you both

It was so nice to hear from you tonight, funny I was just saying to Corey this morning we should stop out over the holidays because he never gets to come with me he's always working. Gibbs is such a wonderful dog we love him so much he's perfect, I've attached a few pictures of Gibbs, he just turned 8 months old on Dec 26th, he loves the snow and playing outside, Gibbs on his birthday weighted 75.2lbs he's getting pretty big. He's been sleeping out of his kennel at night now for about 4months and doing very well, he's so smart tends to forget his manners when company comes over but we are working on it. Hope to come by soon hope all is well
