Ellison just got a major on her MH, Tiger, this weekend. May be another CH/MH this year....
Also, don't forget about those dogs that may have JH or SH or may just be personal hunting dogs. There are a few CHs out there that could do the work, but their owners don't have the experience or time to do it themselves or the money to send them off. You would be surprised whats out there once you start digging and asking questions.
My young girl has 8 points, a JH, 3 legs of her SH and hopefully will be running master this fall. Her sire is a personal gun dog.
I will definitely keep you posted! I plan on taking my Goose girl out to some small shows and show her myself.
And in addition to all the above dogs/breeders mentioned, the age of frozen semen opens up the possiblity of sires that are no longer with us. I have 2 pups out of Ch/Mh Ruthless Blazing Brentley and he's been dead for years.
She looks great Kathleen!
upcoming breeding of a stud with 3 of 4 Grandparents are CH/MH's and the sire of the bitch was a CH and a CAFC
