    Default Bonnie & Clyde of... Ireland

    Two new additions to my house! 13 wks. I'd post the AKC pedigree, but it won't mean squat to any of ya... So I'll try to post both sire & dam pedigrees from UK. That way Eug will be excited!

    We're excited about seeing how these two wind up doing. Had to post pics, bc the yellow ones are so cute!

    Nice looking dogs Barton! What are your plans for them and where did you get them?

    My pro mentor has the sire and be imported the dam for a client several years ago. The guy was going to keep 2 pups but his wife thought better... My offer for them was on the table so I snatched em up around 12 weeks.

    I really just want to see how these move along because my girl has a very similar pedigree to his, and I'm considering a breeding with the same stud. I think I'll try to sell one as started and keep the other until finished then who knows?

    They should have a little more "go" than most British dogs, even dogs with that level ped.

    Bit puzzled by that one, but they do look very nice wee pups.

    What I'm not saying is that the dogs from your side are slow, sluggish, or lacking in any way. But we do get calls from trainers/breeders who say "we have one who is just a bit much to handle" when it comes to your trials, especially trainers who don't use an e-collar. These pups usually require a bit of stronger reinforcement to get the steadiness required to be successful over there.

    That being said, both sire & dam of these pups are that way. And both are extremely athletic, compared to any dogs.

    Both get the job done. The female ( 7yrs) loves to hunt and retrieve, and is a quick learner. The male ( 5 yrs ) loves to hunt and retrieve, quick learner but neither are hard charging. Both are extremely quiet and that's a plus.
