This has been another busy month at Setter Ridge. Montana plays baseball, so that means either a baseball game or a practice five days a week for two and a half months. I love to watch his games. Micah is busy with 4-H and training her horse. Hunter is just busy.
We have several litters of puppies right now. We have blues, tris and oranges. We have puppies out of Hector, Emanuel, Joshua and Hadji. Some really neat puppies. Write if you would like more information about them.
There are new photos of Hector, Joshua, Emanuel and Sahara on the web site. They are out of order. When I get time, I will try to put them in order.
