bell , the rat terrier
« on: October 12, 2006, 04:28:45 PM »
ok just a brief summary of bells progress to date.
she's ten months old today.
she has tree'd 4 squirrels, a racoon, a possum and many chip monks.
last weekend she barked on tree for the first time.
she is now covering three times the area she did when we started. and we can cover about six to ten acres in a couple hours.
the leaves are still very thick , but starting to fall. and the squirrels are still cutting nuts in the top of the trees.  another week or so and they should be on the ground. i think bell will be able to find them a lot easier then. and i'll be able to find them better to knock them down.
all in all im pretty happy with what she is doing in the woods. and on top of that she's the nicest dog around the house. real protective of my grandkids. just about gnawed my son's arm off when he was wrestling with them.

Cool, i dont have any dogs. And the only dog in the family is my dads and she is a crack head. The nephew is scared to death of her. She won't hurt him just likes to jump to much. She is a black lab.
I don't have bad english you just don't listen.

What did you learn?

Traded you I got a redtick that thinks we are squirrel hunting >:( cause they are easier to get at night I just got the wrong hound with me
It takes patience to break a good hound. Ya gotta be persistent and it helps to be a lil smarter then the dog.

every night when i take bell out for her last time, about 9 o'clock, theres a rabbit sitting out by the back fence.
bell always chases it and gets withing ten feet befor it slips her in the rose bushes.
last night she was off like a shot , almost had him. after he got away she went over to my appple tree and got up on it and started looking for the rabbit.

ok,, coon, possum i can accept. but now the goofy mut is treeing rabbit!
