    Default 1984 Nafc-Fc Trumarcs Zip Code

    Have been reading some great threads on some of the more famous dogs that have blessed the sport. Lean Mac, Cosmo, Gates etc. Was wondering if anyone had any personal information or had heard anything special about 1984 Nafc-Fc Trumarcs Zip Code. Would love to hear them.

    I believe we have a resident expert that frequents this board. Maybe he can post a word or two (hopefully not in installments).

    Speaking of which, did I miss Honcho III?

    NAFC-FC Trumarc's Zip Code was sired by Honcho out of Misty, Seymour's Windjammers Mist, owned by Merlyn Lane. Jerry Patopea leased Misty for the breeding and I took Misty right after she was bred and raised the litter. At that time I raised litters for Rex as well.

    Cody was my pick, destined to be Judy Weikel Aycock's stud fee puppy. I started him and Judy came and picked him up at Rex's after the National Amateur that year, which took place in California.

    Instead of changing his puppy call name of Cody, Judy (I thought it was Judy) created his registered name, Zip Code, from it. Later I found out on this board that the clever person who named him Zip Code was not Judy, but Dr. Ed.

    Cody was not a super crazy lunatic high drive retriever. He had plenty enough desire and was super intelligent, a problem solver and a great marker from the git go. The rest is history.

    I asked the same question of the author and got a no comment....but the first two installments are a must read..I happened to live in the DFW during the Cody years,was out of the game at the time without a dog but Team Cody was as formidable as there was. I still frequented trials and you always figured that the field was competing for three spots because Cody was going to finish somewhere "in the money" in every stake entered.

    I am fortunate to have his line running through Kona. I have read a little about him but can't wait to hear more

    He was a VERY GOOD producer. If you study pedigrees, he is in there on some very interesting crosses.

    I'd love to see his stats.

    Wish there was a database like the American Field Stud Book for pointing dogs that kept track of any given dogs breeding info, male or female. It is a very simple formula.... 0-0-0.

    The first 0 is for their personal placements, the second 0 is for progeny with placements and the last 0 is for total placements of all progeny.

    Ex. 12-22-250....would be a dog with 12 placements, 22 progeny with a total of 250 placements. Simplified breeding analysis...these numbers don't lie.
    Train the dog, the ribbons will take care of themselves.

    I would also like to know the number of times bred. But this brings up a real frustration I have with AKC relative to statistical data. They don't accumulate breeding data such that it can be easily analyzed and they certainly don't make it available to others easily so that an outside source can do it. I think AKC really misses the boat on a revenue opportunity in this regard. But this is a digression, back to Cody - he's prominent in the pedigrees of many of our dogs, he, Honcho & Super Chief seem to be as prevalent in field pedigrees as LM.

    I will happily post about Cody soon when I have the time to do it properly, as anyone who knows me will tell you I enjoy remembering the wonderful dogs who I was blessed to have had them share their lives with me

    He was the most intelligent dog I have ever known in a lifetime of dog ownership and as a veterinarian
