If you visit us, you'll find Ty in the house with us. He's a
huge couch potato and a real snuggler. Although he's very
laid back in the house, he's a real dynamo on a dove field.
These pictures will give you an idea of how long their hair
gets. And it doesn't require a lot of upkeep either. They
"blow" their coat twice a year, spring and fall. The rest of
the year they don't shed much at all.
The breeder pedigree shows as many generations as possible, as well as all of the titles in their background that don't appear on their
AKC pedigree. AKC doesn't show field trial champions from outside the United States. When you look at a pedigree and see "FC" or
"FTC" or "F.T. CH," all of those designations mean Field Trial Champion. FTW means Field Trial Winner. Whether you intend to hunt
a dog or not, having a strong pedigree with a lot of FTC's in its background ensures your dog is from excellent stock with all of the great
characteristics you want to look for in a great pet and/or hunting dog.
Cody is our only male not from England.
We were so impressed with his pedigree,
we were very excited to bring him into our
breeding program. His dad held the
nationals the year before we got him.
Cody is a great dog. Great in the field and
great with people and other animals.
We imported Andy from England when he was a puppy. He was a
wild child. When he was 18 months old he started calming down --
a little. But he was still too rambunctious to be a house dog and
was looking like he would be a kennel dog. But Christopher was
insistent he wanted to give him a chance to calm down. I didn't
think he'd ever be able to sit on the couch and watch TV with us
like Ty does. Andy was always so busy and excited all of the time,
he didn't seem capable of relaxing.
The trainer said to wait and see how he did after he worked with
him this last time. He was right! Now Andy's very well-behaved.
He is older now, too, which has a lot to do with it. But he is quite
the character! He entertains himself for hours with his Kong.
Andy's the first dog we've had run in a hunt contest and he got two
ribbons his first time out. He is so unbelievably fast! We hope to
see him run in upcoming hunt contests.
Billy is the newest male imported from England. We're waiting for his paperwork before
taking pictures and adding him to the website. He's gorgeous and is the sweetest, happiest
The breeder said he's fantastic in the field. It was our good fortune that he ranged a little bit
farther than they liked. He's exactly what we've been looking for.
I took these pictures with an phone and didn't realize they'd turn out so small and they can't
be enlarged without getting blurry. I'll take some better pictures this weekend.
