    I think the two breedings between Maxx and John Darling's Dust Devil's Desert Duk could be classified as epic. Produced some pretty nice dogs, many of whom have been producers themselves. And she was "just" a hunt test dog.

    It takes as long as it takes. Sometimes longer.

    "And she was "just" a hunt test dog" QAA I believe. So not "just" a hunt test dog. A lot of good breeding behind her too.Jazztime x a Cody daughter.Thunder back there too,bred to another "Epic" breeding Powder x Nakai Annie.They don't fall far from the tree .

    Passing muster, and passing mustard, are two very different things.
    EggCorn and Mustard, doesn't sound like a bad b-fast come-bin-nation, might be on Mickey D's men-you Seems like passing the mustard has always been more appetizing 2 me, than any ole muster but it had better be Frenchs

    IMO for a breeding to be epic you have to look at more than just the immediate litter

    case in point : the Super Powder x FC AFC Nakai Anny breeding was done 4 times and produced 11 Titled offspring, one of them became NFC AFC Risky Business Ruby who was subsequently bred to NFC AFC San Joaquin Honcho and produced a pup who became FC AFC Trumarc's Hot Pursuit...Percy was the sire of 37 Titled offspring and a recent induction into the Retriever Hall of Fame

    Hmm.. I am new here and am sure I will be slammed, but. Seems like titles are the only determination in the definition of "epic". Is that what it is? Are there no other attributes for consideration?

    im not saying she hasnt thrown some good pups. Just was told by someone very close to her that she generally didnt throw that well thats all, i think expections are set so high due to the fact she was national winner.

    I don't know what an epic breeding is, but I do know that the Kweezy/Willie breeding sure has proven to be a smashing success. I'm going out on a limb & saying that the dogs from that litter will be very good producers. I suspect time will prove me right.
