Pictures and Videos of the Litter:
We have not been born yet, but as soon as we are pictures will be posted.
Details on this Litter
This litter will be born between Christmas and New Year’s 2015. The puppies will be chocolate in color. The dogs will be compact, stocky, and strong. We look forward to great things from this litter, as it is a repeat of a very successful breeding.
Griz our pointing lab and Dove our pointing lab have proven to throw one heck of a nice pup. They will be easy going around the house and very aggressive in the field. Customers should be able to plan on these dogs doing double duty as field dogs and family dogs. Note the following:
- Dove is the only chocolate female that we are aware of sired by 4XGMPR, HRCH Black Forest’s “Bear” Grits MH
- The scheduled pick-up weekend for the puppies will 8 weeks after the puppies are born. We look forward to seeing you all.
- Please Mark it on your calendar.
- If you are unable to be at the kennel for the scheduled pick-up alternative arrangements will need to be made prior to the pick-up date.
- As per FAA regulations all puppies shipped via Delta Airlines can leave the kennel after the 8 week old date.
Learn More About Griz
Griz is a record setting dog in the APLA by becoming the first 4X GMPR at less than 2 years of age. At 23 months of age he broke the previous record of his half brother by over 6 months. Griz also went 5/5 in AKC senior 1 year of age! Griz will compete for his AKC Master title in the spring of 2012. I also ran Griz in his and my first shoot to retrieve event and finished a very respectable third (it would have been 2<sup>nd</sup> if I shot better). This finish was over 28 traditional pointing breed dogs in the pointing division. The event was the Pheasants Forever National Quail Championship in Kansas City and put on by Bird Hunters United. We plan to run more of these events next year!
Griz is one of those special dogs that has a huge motor in the field, but is very controllable and wants nothing more than to be a team player. Griz has an unbelievable demeanor for a dog with his power. He is truly a gentleman that is extremely intelligent & confident, but doesn’t have a dominate bone in his body. He is an excellent marking dog and is rock solid steady at the line. Griz has been a natural pointing dog from day 1 and point’s way off birds. He is extremely reliable and is allowed to run big in the CRP fields of South Dakota or comes in close for the heavy cover sloughs of Iowa.
Griz has a loaded pedigree including 6-Grand Master Pointing Retrievers, 7-Master Hunters, 8-Amateur Field Champions, 5-Field Champions,1-Qualified All Age, 1- 2xNational Amateur Field Champion, and 4- APLA Hall of Fame dogs! Some of the biggest names in the Pointing lab world and the Field Trial world have come together to create a truly exceptional animal!
Learn More About Dove
Dove comes to us from our friends Dale and Brenda Merritt with a pedigree that is extremely unique and unmatched in any Chocolate pointing line. She is a daughter of the great 4X GMPR HRCH Bear Grits MH and Grand daughter to GMPR Grits of Black Forest SH. On the other side both of her grand parents are 4x GMPR’s with lines back to MPR Brook’s Golden Nugget and some of Tiger Mountains great original lines. Dove is living up to her rich pedigree with a gorgeous natural point. The term that comes to mind when describing Dove is “Pointing Machine”.
Dove loves affection and has a very pleasing personality. She is everything we look for in a dog at this kennel and we look forward to improving the breed through her future offspring. Dove is a certified pointing lab and will continue to work towards her master pointing lab title and also some advanced titles in the AKC world. For now we are enjoying a wonderfull season of pheasant hunting with her.
