October 2002 Newsletter
This last month has been very busy. With Montana and Micah back in school, and now Hunter taking a class three days a week, Montana in Football five days a week, Micah’s 4-H and after school activities, like computer class,and homework club. In addition to training and bathing and feeding setters. I am just running around all day.

You can view them on our site www.englishsetter.com under litters. I am still so thrilled that Zion is finished with his Dual. Thank you Terry. He will be headed to California in November for more trials to try to finish his Amateur Field Championship as well. He has earned five out of ten points already.
