    Thank you Marvin. From the pics I've been able to find he looks like a big dog. My girl is a smaller, intense, fast and extremely athletic build. She hits the water 100 MPH lol.

And you might also find the guy who whelped, raised, and trained his mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-grandfather!

    I sent you a PM with my contact information in case you'd like some of that history.

    See, no such thing as a stupid question, unless you're the mainstream media, then it's questionable.
    Lol. True.

    You have Hiwood Piper and Piper's Pacer confused. Hiwoood Piper would have been 12 in 1982. Piper's Pacer won both Canadian National Championship stakes as well as the US National Amateur Championship in 1982. That was my first National Amateur stake to compete in.

    I've heard that as well. The Hiwood dogs I"ve seen come down from that lineage, very handsome and attractive. I had an AFC Hiwood Apache son (patch was a son of Clincher-). Very handsome large yellow male with the most gorgeous field dog head I've ever seen. He (Kick) was a tremendous marker. Most of my dogs now are all descendants of him. And I can say that some traits that HE himself had are still strong in these dogs now, that are two and three generations from him.

    I watched a jag daughter (very nice looking and big for a bitch - 70lb I would guess) absolutley step on a flyer that had landed in 2.5 foot tall barley field. The mark wasnt long (75 yd) but had challenging factors (longish angle entry into the barley). This was after several birds had already been shot.

    The few times I trained with Roy his dogs did great and were good natural lining dogs.. a trait he sought highly. (And lining was also trained for).

    Roy often told Clint "straight lines win field trials"...

    Maybe the question is: How many can still remember? ;-0

    how much do you think a dog 6-7 generations back really plays in to your dog? how much alike are you to your relatives from the 1500's?
