I posted on this thread three years ago. The pup I posted about was sold to a Don Remein client and is in training there. She was on the derby list with 22 derby points. It is running opens now and has one jam in one. Her owner will be running her in amateurs also.
That was my litter to my bitch Missy. Out of that litter of 5, 4 made the US derby list and the other one made the Canadian Junior list. All of the pups in that litter are QAA'd. One is an FTCH in Canada at 3 years old, has US open and amateur placements. Another has an amateur placement. It was a small but nice litter.
Gordy Powers from California has one, I told Gordy when I sold him to him that I wanted to see Gordy handling that dog when Gordy was 100 years old. Looks like it's going to come true. Go Gordy!!

You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

I sure like the Shaq pup I have. At 25 months old she won a 50 dog Qual and will run all age stakes this summer after having puppies this winter/spring.
Anyone on here happen to have a pup out of the Shaq x Ruby breeding?
End of October, 9 pups of the litter had Derby points. Two pups did not run in any Derbies. One went to a hunt test owner. He will run his first hunt test in February (will start out in either Senior or Master).
Of the 9 pups with Derby points, as of the end of October...
2 are on the Derby list
3 had 9 points
1 had 8 points
1 had 6 points
1 had 3 or 4 points, could have been 5 (I have to check again)
1 had 2 points
We regret not keeping a pup from the breeding. It was not the right time for Don to start training a new pup. He wanted to focus on getting Ruby back into training after puppies and he wanted to focus on running her daughter Sally in the Open and Amateur.
Sally is now close to her AFC title. We will be breeding Sally to Nike (AFC Rockliff's Justdoit) in January or Feb when she comes into season. We will keep a pup from that breeding.
Proud breeder of the Shaq-Ruby puppies,

AFC Flyway's Long Tall Sally - Ruby's daughter. Bred to FC AFC Nike which produced Maggie.
