    3.92 FS Jessie Bates
    4.120 RB Royce Freeman
    5.148 DT Ken Norton
    5.165 TE Chris Herndon

    Yeah, the wife and I have taken it pretty hard RB. Bulldoggers can be tricky with the whole pregnancy thingy. They were water pups, a phenomenon that effects bullies and some other similar breeds sometimes. Basically, they gain a bunch of water weight sub-cutaneously towards the end of the pregnancy. As their bodies try to shed the water, it starts to get into their vital organs, like their lungs and brains and they drown. We fought like hell and kept some of them alive for a while, but it's an uphill battle. This is our first litter effected by this and we're still a little rattled. All of our breeder friends assure us it's nothing we did wrong, just bad luck this time (but we still feel so darn guilty). I'll be trying to breed my other female in the the fall, hopefully with better results.

    Joos,

    I haven't tied poppers, and I'm just getting into using foam for hoppers and wing casing on spinners and duns.

    If you need any help let me know. I just tied about one dozen or so for a buddy who owns an outdoors shop here in town. He wants me to stock my flies in his store, so that is cool.

    Where do you live?

    Hey DJ, good for you. That's awesome, stock the heck outa those suckers. I'm in WV, so we don't have the luxury of wide open streams. We're up in the mountains and a good side cast is definitely an asset here. I use store bought poppers for bass and pan fish on the lakes. They're absolutely deadly in the morning and especially at sunset. It's hard to beat a pan fish fry!

    That sux...

    What type of bulldogs?

    I'm a sucker for the french ones and not just cause some people call them clowns. I think it's cause their ears sticking straight up cracks me up. It's cute.

    Jooser,

    That sucks about your pups. I am crazy about my dogs. The relentless compassion they give you without judgement is something special.

    Djfan,

    That Bass is impressive. I am here in Connecticut and anything over 8lbs is considered ellite. What is the record in your state? Thats great you practice CPR (catch, photo, release)

    Hey JJ, I know what you mean. My bullies are a whole other job unto themselves. They require a lot of attention in so many different ways. So far my remaining pup is looking good, hasn't opened his eyes yet so it's hard to judge if he'll be show material or not at this point though.

    You guys can check them out at my website: [url="http://www.hezzbullies.net"]http://www.hezzbullies.net[/url]

    Just checked that out. Nice site. Beautiful dogs. I did not know that you competed professionally. I always thought those shows were based on who you knew to place.
