    I see one of the Willie x Flipper pups in training almost every day & she is really nice. Wish I owned her!

    There is another Willie X Flip pup that at 28 months of age this past September went 7 series in the CDN National Open. She was the youngest dog there. "Jiggy Down With It" is a pretty incredible pup too!!

    NFC AFC Clubmead's Road Warrior X FC AFC Tequila Sunrise, I train with one of the dogs from that breeding pretty regularly and I'd say that is an epic breeding that unfortunately cannot be repeated.
    Field Trials are competitions....not everyone gets a "participation ribbon" and they do "keep score"

    Epic, outstanding, great, awesome etc. all good adjectives used to sell puppies, no breeding is truly epic until the pups it produces pass mustard, and then the off springs of those pups pass mustard, and we look at it later and say WOW. Lean Mac x Hattie Mcbunn EPIC

    Yea that one.
    Nearly all of the puppies from that litter became FC-AFC except for Bob Kennon's Trippy and Simonds's Annie who did QAA.
    When I got started Doc, Tiger, Dice, Gates and Bunns were tearing up the circuit.
    Then they all went on to produce good puppies, even Annie who didn't title.
    That's an Epic breeding.

    "Smoke" Smokin Auggies Menace, QAA (2003- )(retired nut case, ask Rando)
    "Simba" Humewood Simba (1999-2014)(my 1st dog)

    Per favore, non mi rompere i coglioni.
    Grazie

    Hmm! My FC/AFC Mioaks Criquet Pas produced FC/AFC and a FC plus pointed dogs. Let's see I think Flipper was her granddaughter. Criquet was National Open Finalist out of Tank. The genes are there, but, maybe The Flipper pups need a little age.

    That'd be a British EPIC breeding or the proper English word equivalent, can't say I'm qualified to commit on Poupon breedings, just USA Yellow mustard breedings, and very few of those

    That'd be an eggcorn. You know, those nuts that deer and turkeys like to eat.

    Passing muster, and passing mustard, are two very different things.

    Epic?

    How about Malmesbury's Tramp x Malmesbury Juno? Not sure they even had Grey Poupon back then!

    If that's too dated how about Raffles of Earlsmoor x Decoy of Arden?

    Grangemead Precocious x Grangemead Sharon?
