The love of my life!
He was renowned for his great personality, he was a gentleman - and a big clown. With a strong will of his own - but still soft and so willing to please.
A super gundog, 1st prize winning Tracking dog, sledgedog and a fabulous showdog!!

He won his first CC at 9 months and his last CACIB at 11 years.

He sired more than 16 Champions in 3 different countries,
6 Tracking Champions, many prize-winning FT. dogs, drug dogs
for the Police and Avalanche Rescue Dogs.
