JUNE 2001

Photo of the day we picked you up at the airport. You were all legs and so clumsy. We thought about naming you Jughead because you were such a little putz.

Summer Vacation 2012
Oh how Reggie loved riding in
that motor home, going on
family vacations and heading
to dog hunting tournaments
with mom behind the wheel.

Deion and Deb in the 2019 BDC Nationals Ladies Division.

Not too shabby for an old dog two months shy of being 13 years old at the time!! :)

This good old boy is turning into a big softy. He says the cats aren't so bad after all! ;)

Deion turned 15 years young May
2021! He is enjoying retirement in the
house and can't complain about the
extra treats and pampering. He looks
forward to his daily walks in the woods
with Morgan and riding shotgun in the
side by side with Bernie.
