Kate is new to our ranks.  She is the daughter of HPK’s Corky’s Sky Raider (Casey) and a big black pointing dog named Trojan.  Trojan had roots to Corky and had show quality good looks.  We took a chance on the breeding and are very pleased with the results

Kate is a medium sized female that has a really nice level of prey drive, and a SOLID point.  Interesting story here — we originally had toyed with selling Kate early in 2013 because at the time we simply had too many dogs.  A customer came out to look at Kate and another female we had on the property.  The customer actually ran a hunting preserve over in Illinois and wanted a started dog.  As it turned out we took this other pup and Kate out to the field and put out some birds.  Kate started SLAMMING points, and the other pup did an OK job too — but Kate was clearly the better dog.  The gentleman’s family eventually convinced him to buy the other dog, because they preferred the other pups name.  I know she turned out well….but man did we keep a good dog!

Kate has a pleasing personality.  She has the characteristic HPK off switch.  The dog is a hunting machine but is relaxed and eager for a pat on the head when not in the field.  Kate has a thick shiny coat, and penetrating lab eyes.
