    Check out the "Top Stud" thread. You will find lots and lots of pages giving good information.

    Fen wizard, nick of time lone ranger, and Shaq are a few. Emmitt has only been bred a few times and his pups have never seen competition, so when you ask "what pups are hot" mentioning him would be jumping the gun. Not to say he won't produce, time will tell.

    Fargo II is deceased. I do not know of any recent Fargo breedings. You would have to contact Jane Patopea to see if she has sold any straws and to whom she has sold them.

    Well there have been two Cosmo litters born since February, a Ford litter, a Ford breeding coming up and I know of an Ali breeding with a really nice Chopper bitch that is in the oven now, so they are out there, you just never hear about most of them.

    Add to your "hot" puppy sellers pups by Gary Zellner's Pirate and Jim Harvey's Juice. If you are in the market for a pup, contact the owner of the stud dog for upcoming breedings. Same is true of the dam... find one you like and contact the owner for info on when she will be bred and to whom... then get on the waiting list.

    Watch for the winner of the upcoming National Amateur. If it is won by a male, he will be the next popular stud dog.

    If you are asking what sires are being bred the most right now, I'd have to say:

    Grady
    Pirate

    Others quality sires that are getting bred:

    Willie
    Aero
    Fen
    Merlyn
    Juice
    Ali
    Emmitt
    Boo
    Pow (as in Powder My Buns)

    And the "Old School" breedings that you see every once in awhile:

    Ford
    Cosmo
    Creek Robber
    Pow (as in Esprit's Power Play)

    Guess I'm "old school" since I have three out of four of those.

    I have seen a lot of Pirate pups and they look very good. Grady is top of the list so far with younger pups making the"grade" . Either one depending on who they were bred to would sell well. If that's what you mean by "hot".
