    Default Hilltops Hayseed "Bubba"

    I am looking for info, stories about Bubba (the dog) and his offspring. Anyone who saw him run or trained with him I would love to hear about him and what he was like.

    Thanks

    I saw Sylvia McClure and her dog Gracie, who is a Bubba daughter run last fall at RRiver FT and was very impressed with the dog, very nice marking dog

    Wow, it was a long time ago. When Bubba was a pup, John would stop here to run a few tests. I remember one day when he had been to Des Moines for something and stopped to run a real technical single (or blind - aren't they the same for FT training?). It was the third place he trained that day. Bubba smashed it.

    Bubba won a derby and open before he was 2. I attended his second birthday party for a while, but had a litter of pups whelping, so didn't stay long.

    John has since build a wonderful training place of his own. Makes my little back yard seem like a postage stamp.

    John is a good trainer. I usually don't understand what he tells me, but he gets results. Bubba and he were a team. Match made in heaven.

    There's still semen if you want a Bubba pup.

    I own a female out of one of the last breedings of Bubba and she is very nice. She is anything I have ever wanted in a dog. She will train all day 7 days a week is intelligent can take pressure but does not need it, has a big motor, calm in the house, handles like a dream, and best of all lights out marker!! Her only limitation is her trainer , Her pups from her one litter seem to have the goods as well.

    I would take another Bubba pup in a heartbeat!

    I have a male out of Bubba, he will be 11 in June. Good looking dog (yes I'm prejudiced, but it's the truth). good marker and has the best nose I've ever seen on a lab. Slowing down but still has ALL his drive. HRCH Hunters' Way Guns of Autumn (Gunnar).

    I own a Bubba grandson out of Drake. My Hatch is a good marking dog, was slow to mature mentally but has really come on in the last 6 mos. Responds better to low pressure and consistent insistance to doing things right through attrition when appropriate rather than heavy collar pressure. Hatch is a large, athletic dog with nice style & big water entry. And he was 3rd in the SW GA Am last weekend along with an open JAM. Hatch is a fox red.
