SO 10 Shotgun Donated by Beretta
Seventy years from the first modern Beretta over-and-under (the model S1 that was launched in 1933), a new true sidelock shotgun is born. The SO10 over-and-under: The deserving successor of the famous Beretta SO series hunting and competition shotguns that have earned their reputation, on the Olympic podium and on the most exclusive hunts in the world, from Europe to America to Africa, for being the most functional, elegant and exclusive over-and-unders in the world.
Drawing from this very long experience, and under the dedicated guidance of the Beretta family, the most gifted designers and gunsmiths of the company have created the new SO10 over-and-under, a synthesis of aesthetic refinement, function and performance that place it at the peak of the world’s prestigious over-and-under offerings.

Exclusive Legacy Labrador Puppy from Robert Milner of Duckhill Kennels
In the 1830's, the 5th Duke of Buccleuch imported the first ancestral Labradors from Newfoundland and developed the beginnings of the Labrador breed. The Dukes of Buccleuch have subsequently maintained this original strain of Labrador Retriever and have bred over many years a superb game finding dog to supply the needs of their gamekeepers for their vast estates in Scotland. The Duke of Buccleuch's kennels are the only Labrador breeding kennel which has been in continuous operation since the introduction of Labradors to England in early 1800's. Today, the original strain of Labrador continues in FTW Buccleuch Oak, a handsome and talented black labrador dog who resides in Scotland with the 10th Duke of Buccleuch. World-renowned dog trainer, breeder and author, Robert Milner of Duckhill Kennels, has bred bitches to Buccluech Oak and has retained and trained a number of the puppies. They are characteristically high in hunt drive and easy to train.

Eukanuba has donated a one-year supply of dog food to accompany this excellent Labrador puppy.

The high quality ingredients found in Eukanuba are selected based on the nutritional benefits they provide for your dog. The success of any sporting dog is only as good as genetics, training and diet can support. If nutrition is used properly, it provides a foundation for effective training and performance. If abused, it will handicap the benefits derived from training and ultimately affect performance.

DHA - A ground breaking study of mothers and puppies that were fed Eukanuba showed increased levels of DHA to promote smarter and more trainable puppies. Eukanuba puppy food contains 10 times more DHA and brain building Omega-3 fatty acids than other leading puppy food brands.

Fountain Pen Made from James Madison's Cedar of Lebanon Tree Donated by Historical Woods of America, Inc.
At the etrance to the Montpelier garden is the largest of three remaining Cedars of Lebanon. They were certainly planted during James Madison’s lifetime, as he was known to have planted four Cedars of Lebanon on the grounds. One of these trees fell from the weight of ice and high winds during a 1995 ice storm. This tree had a circumference one inch larger than the largest remaining tree and was found to have 173 annual rings on one side of the trunk. Subtracting 173 from 1995 suggests that the trees were planted in the early 1820s or about fifteen years before Madison’s death. A local tradition says these four Cedars of Lebanon were a gift from France to James Madison presented by Lafayette during his visit to Montpelier in 1824. The wood from the tree that fell in 1995 was used in the creation of this hand crafter item.

Original Art Painting by John Seerey Lester
John's images have a mysterious and mystical appeal, directly related to his ability to paint the unusual. His skill in painting mist and snow, as evidenced in Polar Lookout, and wildlife in subdued light, such as Out of the Darkness Into the Light, or Dark Presence, has created a demand for his ability as a painter that has few rivals. Not many artists display the ability to paint wildlife in all the natural elements. Seerey-Lester's imaginative designs are always an anticipated aspect, as experienced in a recent release of Full Moon Rising - Leopard. Where else, but through his art, could you see such a brilliant occurrence.

The Years of George Montgomery, is a limited edition book that chronicles the history of actor George Montgomery’s film career and his work as an artist. It includes photographs of movie actor Ronald Reagan as well as a letter to George Montgomery from President Reagan.
