    Looks like Grady had one litter that is about 6 and among the rest the oldest are about 5 now. Looks like the majority are 3 or younger though. Of 394 dogs, 100 are QAA. I count 1 NAFC, 7 FCs and 5 AFCs. Total points: 155.5 Open, 139 Amateur and 1439 Derby

    The HT numbers don't seem to tie since they show for example in a column labeled "Master Passes" no more than one but many of those dogs have MH in their names, so Master Passes may mean MH title. However some don't but that could be failure to update the name on the entries. So either there are 82 MH dogs out of this or jsut a bunch.

    It is a pretty cool report.
    We're making some updates to the report which you'll see in a couple of days. we're going to include the number of passes for each HT stake and let the titles show up in the dog's name (where they belong).

    Comments on the report are more than welcome. Based on the number of orders we've received from stud dog owners, I suspect you'll be seeing quite a few of them!

    First of all you can polish a Turd but in the end you just have a polished Turd.

    Second there are lots more unpolished turds than polished turds

    Third you could could spend 3000 $ and have no more talent than a $275 back yard breeding

    Forth I have one of those $275 back yard dogs that hasn't failed a HT since she turned 2. She is QAIA and had AA points as a 3 yr old.

    Fifth that $275 dog was much like winning the powerball after buying my first lottery ticket.

    6th if I wouldn't have asked for help training her when I knew I needed it I wouldn't have the same dog that I have today.

    BTW all my dogs since have cost a lot more because i believe any one man can only have so much luck in one lifetime. Now I know how to stack the deck.
    Dog, Training, luck. IMO

    Nice looking dog; who looked to throw talent to his offspring; however I do hope he had more offspring than those listed on Huntinglabped. I could only follow him for a couple generations and then he seems to disappear...It'd be pretty tragic if such a dog was lost to time, however I bet this happens to many talented studs who are not the current Wow.

    I know that I sure like my Grady sired pup and would take 10 more just like him if I could. I do not know much about Emmitt but I have heard great things about his offspring as well but then again it depends on the female both are being bred to, like has been stated already.

    Gonzo, Have you gotten this pup? If yes just wondering what you think. I have a Grady Cha pup that is about 9 months now. BTW Cha is QAA.

    Resurrecting this thread to see if any more feedback available now that Emmitt pups are a bit older (knowing of course the role of the bitch). Thanks.
