    I turned down 125 when Gman was really young and I said no! The guy said name your price and said no again and don't regret it one bit! Sounds like there is several amazing young dogs running today, that's great for the sport I hope the owners enjoy the ride!

    I think it is clear now that you made the right choice. i am sure you have probable doubled that in stud fees.

    Heck - I could afford 125!
    The way I look at it, every dog is an opportunity to be a better trainer, and every day is a new day to be a better trainer to the same dog we trained yesterday.

    Funny thing is a $85K dog most likely isn't worth much to someone who doesn't actually own it and have AKC papers, My feeling would be the owners would have reported the dog stolen to AKC and froze his paperwork. Can't run a dog with Frozen paperwork; so HT and FT are out; also no breeding. The only possible market would be a hunter, then your buying a dog FC MH AFC NFC (whatever) without papers; who can only be hunted. Watching the market you can get a finished dog for maybe 6k; but even that would be a hard sell without official documentation including health certs.

    I'm guessing the incredible journey with Grady is more special to him than the money ever could be... But the stud fees aren't bad either...

    According to Brian Parks math they would[IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.retrievertraining.net/forums/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif[/IMG]

    He apparently knows of some dog with a hunt test title that's could be worth more than that though [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.retrievertraining.net/forums/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif[/IMG]
    How much did Larry sell for? $60k?

    I recently saw an ad for a dog with 19 derby points asking $20k.

    Not sure what they got though.

    Do you think Rain would sell for $85k?

    If there was a way to and I had the means I can think of a couple of my dogs I would spend some stupid amount of money to have back, if only for one more hunt. But, as Grandma said if wishes were horses we could all get on and ride.
    ENJOY THE JOURNEY!!!

    When applying for a loan,, is it possible to list an 85k dog as an asset? What proof of the value, would you be required to give? Would it be pro rated based on age?

    I have guns, that people tell me the value is somewhat high.. Its one thing to get an opinion, its quite another to get a wad a cash.. I look at my guns, like my dogs..neither are for sale..

    It takes only one person to whom $85,000 to them is the equivalent of the $200 I carry in my front pocket wallet. I can’t imagine spending $50,000 for a boat or $10,000 for a cruise but everyone has their own guilty pleasure. That $85 single malt Scotch on my bar is worth every penny😉
