New Pups are Here!
Golds, Chocs, and Blacks... pan all the way to the bottom!


On 10/22/11, we struck gold! Lucy and Ocho blessed our kennel with six beautiful little yellow gems, five females and one male. Lucy, a yellow daughter of Royal, one of my chocolate Master Hunters, is compact, athletic and very sweet. I bred her last year to one of my own yellow studs, with excellent results, but this summer I had opportunity to train a gorgeous yellow male belonging to Connie Cramer of Harvest Moon Kennels. I was so impressed with his looks, personality and working ability that I negotiated a deal with Connie to breed him to Lucy. Connie and I are both thrilled with the outcome of this breeding and excited to see the pups growing and developing so well. These little dolls won't be quite old enough to go to new homes by Christmas but should be ready to go about the second week of January. For anyone wanting to give the gift of a yellow puppy for Christmas, I will make up a little booklet of pictures and information on the pup that can be wrapped up and opened on Christmas, or families could make a visit to the farm and surprise the recipient with a preplacement visit to the new pup.



Piddle Creek's Birdy Babe SH and Palmer's Duces Wild MH QAA produced a Baker's Dozen of yummy dark chocolate pups on 11/29. Despite the large size of the litter, the five females and eight males are thriving. Babe, a titled Senior Hunter who I hope will accomplish her Master Hunter title this summer, is one of my top dogs, both for guiding and competition. She now is a great house dog, as well, although it awhile for her to learn that just because she is athletic to get up there, standing on tables isn't okay. Babe spent most of her pregnancy supervising the office when she wasn't in South Dakota pheasant hunting or guiding on the farm, which she did right up to 16 days before her pups were born. Duces is a dark, handsome titled Master Hunter who is Qualified All Age in the field trial circuit. He really tears up the field when hunting and competing, but when "off duty," he's a house dog and couch potato who loves taking walks on his owner's treadmill if the weather doesn't permit him to get outside. Pups out of this breeding in the past have done very well including one in Minnesota belonging to the Bally family who are campaigning her. Pedigrees for Babe and Duces may be seen under the pedigrees tab. These pups will be ready for their new homes during the second half of January. To see more of this litter, click here!
