    My link actually is actually on a search which was for any 'AFC' chocolate males on FR. FC NAN-DOOL ELWOOD BLUES is listed on FR as an FC only.

    I am sure there may be more we've missed, so please let me know of any.

    Damn ya'll are hard to please. I believe a 'complete' dog database is nonexistent.

    So tell me how you would go about finding the sire of this year's high point male and female chocolate derby dog.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    I'm interested to hear peoples thinking on this also. I see a lot of Chocolates running hunt tests, but have only seen 1 chocolate running at trials I've been at and it's been my trianing partners dog.
    When I started this tread I would of thought there would have been at least 10+ FC male chocolates.
    I'm finding this very interesting and am currently working on data for a spread sheet that would show dogs competing by percentage the sex color and breed.

    I think the vast majority of FT'ers share Henry Ford's philosophy on color selection - you can have any color you want . . . so long as its black. I've talked to several very good breeders and they say its often hard to place chocolates into competitive FT homes as everyone wants black, at which point it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy more or less.
