So I crawl out of bed every morning and release the hounds. The puppies anyway. Everyone's leashed up while I clean the house and kennel, and then we're off on our morning walk. There are 9 dogs here this morn.
And in unrelated news, I was elected as a board member for the hunting dog department of our regional hunting association. They sprang that one on me, but I'm thinking it'll be a good learning experience. The hunting dogs trials are mostly for bird dogs, so a chance to gain some knowledge in that area of hunting.
