    Living really narrows the choices, plus the fact that not all their owners allow natural..but I will take a stab at it

    1. AFC Rockcliff's Just Do It (Nike).....I am hoping he is going to be the sire of our future puppy, so its a biased pick....Nike has SIX Amateur wins THIS year with Dr. Foster....Nike is the littermate to FC AFC World Famous Rosa Barks

    1A.FC AFC Bayou Teche Eye on the Ball( Slider) - Clubmead's Road Warrior son

    2. CNAFC FC Flatlands Sledgehammer(Sledge)- always will like him, has Honest Abe on both sides

    3. CNFC CNAFC FC AFC Nightwings Marsh Leader (Guide)-

    4. FC AFC Fen Wizzard (Fen)

    5. FC AFC Wood River's Franchise (Shaq)

    my list might look different if you included ALL sires that were available

    I'm not a breeder but have watched some of these dogs and/or their offspring run that I have kept my eye on for a future pup. My boy's breeder bred to Magic last year and also has a Howdy pup, both of which I really like in terms of temperament and team players. In terms of FC's/ AFC's these are my picks:

    FC AFC CFC CAFC to Adams Acres Muddy Creek "Cree"
    FC AFC Lane's Let's Get Ready to Rumble "Ali"
    FC AFC Coolwaters Knockout "Punch"
    FC AFC Hardscrabble's Storm Warning "Twister"
    FC AFC CFC CAFC GMPR Jazztime Last Chance v Pekisko "Chance"
    FC Watermark's Texas Welcome MH "Howdy"
    FC AFC Wood River's Franchise "Shaq"
    FC CFC CAFC Taylorslab Magic Trick CD MH "Magic"

    and though not FC/AFC, without a doubt Tyler is on my short list:

    NOC OTCH Count Tyler Show MeThe Money UDX7 OM6 MH QAA "Tyler" (FC AFC High Tech CEO x FC AFC Countess Olenska MH)
    Chelsey
    The rescue who started it all...
    "Hailey" USJ SHR Havasu's Hollywood Heartache RE (7 RAE) JH CGC WC (Retired)
    and the youngster
    "Ryder" UUJ HR Nog's Knightly Trek to Hollywood CD RAE SH NAJ THD CGC WC CC

    If you are talking about Seaside's Pelican Pete--He has no offspring at present.

    Actually the most impressive pups I've seen recently were out of a HT breeding, crossing some very old school lines together. I have watched a few pups last season, with a few names on those lists, all I can say is the juries still out. All pretty good pups with definite characteristic that can be traced back to particular studs, but Just nothing I really like. Still I got a few friends investing in some heavy hitting sires and nice dams this year. So maybe next year I'll be better able to comment.
