    Default Finn and his offspring

    I've seen a lot of past threads on Finn (FC blackwaters last resort) and it seems everyone really likes him as a competitor and stud dog. My question is, is he still competing? It doesn't seem like he is accumulating any points in the last few years, or competed in any nationals? Don't get me wrong I think he's a great dog and I'm considering getting a pup sired by him. I'm just wondering why the drop off? Also does anyone know if he has sired any field champions or even a master hunter? I haven't been able to find any. Any info would be great!

    Finn's offspring are all young but I do know of 1 QAA dog. Finn still is competing in trials and has had some Jams and places. I don't believe he has won in the past year. he is an excellent dog and will only get better with age. Remember he won at an early age and is still not in his prime.

    No reflection on the dog but what age do you consider "prime", according to EE he will be 8 next month?

    Roper,
    Shoot a pm to RTFer Drbobsd. He owns Finn and can tell you all about him. Bob is a great guy!!!
    My sister in law has owned 3 Finn pups and has liked them all. She presently owns a 2 yr old Finn daughter out of a QAA Patton bitch.

    Have seen Finn ran at several trials. He is a nice looking dog and marks really well...definitely a competitor

    Some we can talk about, some we can't.
    Some we're proud of, some not so proud of.
    Doesn't matter which. They're still our firsts.

    2 QAA (Ruby & Cooper) that I've seen to date. Find Retrievers shows 8 with Derby points. I personally know of several that should SH/or MH by end of 2014.
