Litter Announcement

All yellow pointing litter born August 20, 2017. 6 females and 3 males.  This is a repeat breeding that produced exactly what we were looking for in a pointing lab the first time.  This litter will provide all the drive, looks, natural instinct, and athleticism you're looking for.  My last year's started dog "Gunner" is out of this same breeding and he did not disappoint!  I have been around a lot of great dogs in my life, but his demeanor, temperament, drive, and point top the list.  Click on link to see more about him:  

Rylee is an all around great female that matches up perfectly with Eli.  She is a 60 pound female an athletic build that can go strong all day.  She possesses a strong will to please and that drive everyone is looking for but knows when to turn it off.   She is out of one of my last Belle breedings and her pedigree is loaded and includes dogs like 4xGMPR Cashman's Groovy Little Trooper MH, GMPR Duke's True Grit SH, GMPR Grits of Black Forest SH, GMPR MHR Rik's Risky Raider, and many more.  She has all the right look, and passes on that same great look, temperament and drive into her offspring.  

Eli is an APR titled male out of 4xGMPR parents.  You won't find too many males that have his look and pedigree all rolled into one package.  He is 78 pound male that is a lean, mean hunting machine. He is the type of dog that can cover a lot of ground, and make his way through the toughest of cover. He'll go strong all day long, and is the type of dog that knows how to shut it down at the end of the day. His pedigree includes notables such as 4XGMPR MHR Baier's Lady Legacy of Tru Point MH,  4X GMPR HR Sams Creek High Priest of Israel SH, GMPR Sauk River's Featherstorm MH, GMPR Sir Hershey of Surrey, GMPR MHR Rik's Risky Raider MH, and many more.  

Both Eli and Rylee come with all the health clearances and the pups will come with a 28 month health guarantee on hips, elbows, and eyes.

6 Weeks

It's hard to believe 6 weeks has gone by so quickly.  This rambunctious little group starts heading home this week already, and its safe to say that this litter will be missed!  They are full of energy, intuitive, and extremely playful.  Not a minute goes by where we're not counting heads to make sure they're all accounted for and double checking to make sure they are dragging something they shouldn't out in the yard.  Even though they are a lively bunch, they did cooperate pretty well for pictures tonight.  After all these years we're starting to figure out what works when taking pictures of 6 week old puppies! Hey it only took about 11 years!

Finally the names....

A couple nights ago we finally got a chance to sit down and pick names.  Some of them have meaning behind them, others of them are what the kids picked, but now at least you can put a face with the name.  It started to rain toward the end so a few of the pics are just ok, and not to mention some of them don't have a lot of sit at this stage in the game.  I guess that's what makes it fun and interesting all at the same time.  As a family we all decided it would be fun to name our own pups. Seeings how the youngest members of the family always choose their favorites we thought we'd all get in on the action and claim one as our own.  With the recent wedding our family is now 8 strong, plus a significant other which makes 9.   However KK assures us that she can have 2 pups we worked together to come up with the last name.  Here is the list of family members and the names/pups they chose.
Shalee- Nala
Devon- Reggie
Family Pup-Lizzy

4 weeks old!

4 weeks old and so many exciting things happening in their little lives so far.  The weather has been outstanding, so the time outside has been great.  For only being 4 weeks old, I don't know if I've ever had a litter as active as they are already!   This weekend started out with them celebrating their first wedding on Friday. My oldest son Austin, who "technically" owns Maggie married his high school sweetheart so having the puppies a part of the festivities seemed like a good idea!  I say technically because, in a few weeks when they move to their new house, I'm going to have a tough time letting Mags move in with them!  She has become such a big part of my life. From the morning runs, to the endless hunting trips, and everywhere in between Mags has been a part of my daily routine for 2.5 years now.  Fortunately they are only moving a couple minutes away!   Along with the wedding festivities the pups also started eating wet food this weekend.  In only a days time they've figured out that when they hear the pans start to make noise that the food is coming, and most certainly let me know that they are hungry.   Below are a few pics I was able to capture from the wedding shoot, but there will be more to come later.  I can't wait to see what the professional photographer has to show!  You can see that the pups played pretty hard this weekend.  When they all find a place to snuggle up in the green grass for a nap, you know it's been a great day!
