The devastating conditions in Houston brought to mind erstwhile field trialer Joe Coleman, who successfully campaigned setters several years ago. Joe was also a charter member of the Top Shooting Dog Award Committee for several seasons.

Dale Bush conveyed that Joe and Kathy were out of town, “but all is well at their house. Their son John had to go get all their dogs and get them kenneled at a different location,” Dale Bush informed.

“We got twenty-two inches of rain in College Station, but other than that we are fine. Mail is becoming a problem, nothing coming in and nothing going out. No telling when that will be corrected.”

In a similar vein, Executive Director Tonya Brotherton reported from the Bird Dog Foundation (August 30) that BDF Director and CFO Bob Inverson informed that nearly forty inches of rain had fallen in Huntsville, Tex., also just north of Houston.

“Bob said the water is receding,” Tonya informed, “and the cattle are starting to come off the higher ground.”

The Grand Junction (Tennessee)  area is bracing for six-seven inches of rain in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
