First I'd like to thank everybody for the PM's and responses to my questions over the last several months. The folks at RTF sure made my endeavor of finding a pup a lot easier and faster. I have not ran a field trial since the 1990"s and can't wait to get started.
RTF's very own MR. Atkinson knew what I was trying to do and was on the lookout for me. One day a few weeks ago I get a call. "Randy I think you need to talk to this lady"
The rest is history. Thank you, Chris
The pup I ended up with is sired by: Pirate. Nothing needs to be said there.
The dam is: QAA and MNH. Sired by FC Running With The Devil. Dams name: "Walensis' Devil's Food"
I have talked to several breeders in the last year. Some have stated that they would repeat one breeding or another that I liked but that would have set me back another 9 months to a year. So I decided to take the bird in the hand. If one of those breeding's does happen I guess I'll have two dogs to train.
The above pic was taken yesterday on the way home. 1300 miles round trip. She slept in my wife's arms all the way, no crying, no accidents. ( Yes we stopped to feed, water, and air)
For those that may want to know how I picked a puppy out of a litter that was 650 miles away?? It was easy.
I picked a breeding. I Wanted a chocolate female. There were two chocolates in the litter, one male, one female. Doesn't get much easier than that.
This is NOT a request for names. I'm trying to work in "Pirate" and "Devil" Thinking "Pirates She Devil" or "She Devil Pirate" call name "Calypso"
