some of these game dogs are straight archaic.. ya know? I think with alot of these greats maybe it was the mentality you carried around the dog.. ^^^^ Zebo for instance.. Bull and what not.. they were fine with some people and other people totally aloof. ... Hog dog has some of that dam quality he just checks people with his eyes so to speak.. like .. you afraid?? chump.. .. I can tell no one could own him unless they handled game dogs on a regular basis.. he listens to me with perfection .. OH! he doesnt like striking of any kind so I used a stick and struck at him and he automatically said lets do it.. LOL I was havin fun so was he but the wrong person... :roll: not so much.. You know how them old men did in those days not all that owned or handled the dogs were true dog men as they were glory hounds or along for bus fare ya know what I mean? Alot guys strike dogs.. alot of game dog dont like to be struck... I've knoticed that with alot of these Halls dogs is that they will cur YOU out ... LOL if they dont they're rarely toppled.. Hog dog requires wolf logic hands on treatment pressure points and hand grabs all I ever physically do beside chunkin rocks to let him know I can reach him 50yds away.. LOL All voice and frame of mind with this dog and I think that most of them probably were.. thus theWhen Bobby Hall owned Bully he was attacked, when he walked his run. Bobby had a large mouth shovel in his hand and he went upside Bully's head and put Bully on his backside, then was just able to get out of Bully's run before he came to his feet and came for him again. This occured numerous times until the last when Bobby put the shovel in one hand and held it beside him and said "Come here Son." "Bully son come to me" and Bully then walked over to Bobby's feet and waged his tail. Bobby said he stuck out his hand to him and he licked his hand, then Bobby walked over and shoveled up his dung. From that day Bobby changed his name from Bully to Bullyson.

:goodpost::woof::woof::goodpost:Here is a little piece on Garret's Jeep ROM
Some of the crosses which are well known where Jeep created some great dogs and the blood seems to click the best with are Jeep/Red Boy and Jeep/Rascal.
I think its that fired up colby stock that clicks together with redboy/jeep JMOONLINE PEDIGREES ::  :: FINLEY'S BOONLINE PEDIGREES ::  :: TEAL'S JEFF (1XW)
on that rascal ... well pure  stock boudreaux dogs never hurt anyones lines.. LOL
and while we are talking about Crenshaw, and old dogs.. Gotta give a SHOUT out to Ed Crenshaw, Earl Tudors, and Maurice Carver for the great Alligator
James Crenshaw has stated publicly that he never liked Jeeps style personally, as Jeep was never a finisher in his eyes. This however severely contradicts Crenshaw's choice off dogs that he's personally based his yard on, as they were primarily off of Jeep, and crosses that he made with Ch. Rascal for the most part, and in later life he was well known for using Jeep/Red Boy dogs.
I've read that before it seems, I can understand not liking the dog as well as you do its brother/sister inwhich you've sold.. LOL but have to utilize the genetics in the dog you have while looking for the traits of the bellymate rather than the sire.. hahahaha.. I agree about that statement to some extent, in the right hands the other dog would have been better than jeep but he wasnt was he? he was pushed and campaigned as much as jeep rather in jeeps place, (chuckles to self) I agree with you about the influence and numbers of time used.. I would say genetically tants miss jocko cant be far from that.. almost every Jocko/redboy dog or STP buck/J/R has miss jocko and there are a of Jocko dogs from here bred this way or that way I see some pure Chavis mostly in the islands; theres some out in the phillipines and japans southern island, some out in indonesia.. but I dunno maybe she still has a ways to go but shes got to be the most influencial bitch since honeybunch.. maybe we should put it like that?? instead of comparing to jeep
CH. Jeep is believed by many to be one of the best match dogs of his time.
the dog makes the papers
And, for his fourth and final match we went into Ozzie Stevens' Ch. Homer, at 43 pounds and won in 3:45. This was one of those classic matches, that history is made from. Two great game dogs met, and only one could win. One created a legacy and the other a dynasty.
Garrett's Ch. Jeep ROM died in the fall of 1989.R.I.P.
