But let's go back to Randy's fantastic season:
"Our tracking season was busy and went well. No major injuries or health issues. Annie got hit while on the lead by a flailing doe, but she shook it off and recovered quickly. As this season ends here for Georgia, Florida and Alabama, I have logged 38 recoveries out of 95 legitimate tracks taken. That's about 40% success. We conformed another 9 misses and had 36 calls that we referred to others or were unable to attend.
I was able to handle J.J. Scarborough's Rosie on 9 tracks of which 3 were recoveries. I love that dog! My Drahthaar, Pepper, was able to find 1 deer in a heavy rain, when Annie was on strike because of the storm. In a storm Annie will bed down and refuse to work.
I posted here only a sample of pictures that Randy sent me. First 9 pictures show Annie and her handler Randy.
