Ripley is an excellent natural hunter with a great nose and search. She loves her people, and is a great companion, relaxing in the house when the hunt collar is put away. Ripley is out of Maddy, who is a NAVHDA Prize II, with lots of drive and biddability. Her sire is Jacque, a NAVHDA Versatile Champion, lovely easy going personality that turns it on when in the field or water. We had five pups in this litter NAVHDA Natural Ability tested, and all five prized with scores over 100 out of a possible 112! Two pups had perfect scores. The quality of Ripley and her littermates has been exceptional, and they haven’t reached their prime, as they won’t be 2 years old until April of this year.

Jethro is our youngest male, who I feel is going to be an outstanding hunter. He is only 15 months old, but achieved a NAVHDA NA Prize I at only 9 months. He has a great natural search, and natural retrieve. Jethro received his AKC Bench Championship at only 13 months old. He is 23 inches tall, with lots of muscle and a beautiful easy-going gait. He is driven for birds, and we can’t wait to get him out this coming fall. Jethro is out of our foundation female, Ch. North Lake’s Bit O’Honey and our Swedish Import, Ch. Griffinorr Chewbagga. He has a thick harsh coat, excellent for the field. This litter is being co-bred with Cindy and Phillip Wilt, Ripley’s owners, located in Alabama.

Glacier's "Lucy"

Originally Gidget - Owner Mike Zimmerman - At 14 weeks, she's pointing and retrieiving!

Lucy had her best day this year. 5 months old. She searched and pointed a covey of 6.. I shot 3 out of the 6. 2 birds were down with one wounded.. Lucy took off after the wounded and brought back.. You will see in the picture prey drive is big right now.. We are starting to work as a team... Amazing the work she is doing at such a young age... This was such a great memory I have taken birds in to have them mounted.....
Thank you!
