    Default '78 NAFC-FC Kannonball Kate

    Anyone have any information on this dog? Richard Halstead's book lists her as a 5x Doubleheader Winner. She's out of an FC sister to '75 NFC-'76 NAFC - '76,'77 CNFC Wanapum Dart's Dandy.

    Kate (I assume that was her call name) must have been a heck of a dog too..

    Thanks for buying the book. See http://www.working-retriever.com/retrpast/kbkate.html

    Charlie Hill says there were 5 double headers but he counted it as 6 six since she won a National and National Amateur in the same year.

    I got to know her personally, but it was in a time that I didn't have a clue about dog work.

    I can tell you this -- in an era of pigs (because of early e-collars and their misuse), she was a high-drive/high-desire dog. This alone was impressive and made her standout. As a novice, I wanted to see her win. I wanted to see the dog that wanted to be there, the dog that wanted to work, to be the one who won.

    Did she know the collar? Of course. And her owner Pete Lane had a temper. But she took it in stride.

    She was a little ball of fire, maybe fifty-five pounds soaking wet.

    Drive is the manifestation of Desire, and measured in Style.

    Kate was never bred, her sibling Seymour's Windjammer Mist when bred to NFC San Joaquin Honcho produced:
    NAFC-FC Trumarc's Zip Code
    FC-AFC Earthquake Ethel
    FC-AFC Jumpin' Black Flash

    Kate was a great bitch, all time high point female
