Craig Doherty sent me an email the other day announcing a new litter of English Pointer pups.
This litter is a repeat breeding of Wynot Ace X Elhew Liebotschaner, the same breeding that produced Craig’s fantastic dog Wild Apple Jack – the 2007 Grand National Grouse Champion.
There are 10 puppies there. I wonder if one of them is a future Grand National Grouse Champion? They certainly have the breeding.
Ace won the National Amateur Grouse Championsip and the International Amateur Woodcock Championships in 2003 as a derby. Leibotschaner has both derby and shooting dog placements. Together, those parents have the potential to turn out some fantastic bird dogs.
BTW: Craig Doherty is the publisher and editor of Field Trial Magazine. If you’re into bird dogs and field trials, it’s a must read. Check it out.
Here’s a place where you can find out more about Coverdog Field Trials.
