  • Charm’s Pedigree

Charm is Ace’s very naughty, very talented sister.  Perfectly named, Charm charms everyone she meets even when she is being bad.  Talented in the field, Charm earned her SH in October, 2006, then spent that December and January with our good friend and talented handler Lisa Bettis, where she quickly and easily finished her show championship.  Charm resumed her field training, CharmsLootWPcompleted her HR in April, 2007 and went on to earn her Master Hunter title in October of 2007.

Charm was bred to Milo (CH Gamekeepers Time and The Bell CD CGC) and then to Ajax (CH Grousemoor Double Trouble JH WCX) and those two litters have already produced the 2015 National Specialty HIT winner, multiple MACH’s, several GCH’s and numerous field title holders.  When her motherhood duties ended, she went back to the field where she qualified for and passed the 2011 Master National becoming the first bitch in breed history to earn this award.  Charm continued to compete and qualifed for two additional Master Nationals (2012 and 2013)

She is retired from the field now, but the old girl has still got it.  She won the 11+ Veteran Bitch Regular Class and got 2nd in 11+ Sweepstakes at the 2015 National Specialty where she was also inducted into the FCRSA Hall of Fame.  Charm is still as sassy as ever and her impact on the breed will be felt for generations.

  • Prince Charming’s Pedigree

Prince Charming is everything a Prince should be…handsome, sweet natured, outgoing and fun.  We never doubted that he was something special from day time he was born.  Like his Grandmother Charm, Prince Charming “charmed” his way into Maria’s heart.  The only male pup born in the Purdey x Diggor litter, he was supposed to go to another home, but his actions made it very clear that he needed to stay right here at Gamekeepers.

PCBISGroup1WPPrince Charming, easily earned his JH as a youngster as well as earning a Rally Novice title for some fun.  When he was ready, PC went to his best buddy Lisa Bettis and together they had a remarkable show career.  PC quickly and easily finished his Championship by winning Best of Breed at every show and earning all but 3 of his points by taking the Breed over multiple specials and picking up a Group 2 from the classes along the way.  PC immediately sailed through to his Grand Championship, winning Best of Breed at the FCRCI supported Entry and picking up another Group 2 and a Group 4.

PCBISSeatedWPIn November 2014, Prince Charming came home for a break to grow up some more and work on his Senior Hunter.  However, that plan changed, when after 6 months PC went back to his buddy, Lisa Bettis to get ready for the 2015 National.  In one month, PC earned enough breed points to take over as the #1 male Flat-coat while picking up several more group placements and earning his Bronze Grand Championship.

Lisa and Prince Charming

By the end of their 3rd month together, Lisa and PC had amassed 16 group placements including back to back Group 1’s in Fort Dodge, Iowa.  April 9, 2016, Prince Charming made all of our dreams come true by winning his first All Breed Best In Show at the Saginaw Valley Kennel Club show and then following it up by winning Reserve Best In Show on Sunday.  Since then PC has added many more Group wins and placements to his record, earned his place in the FCRSA Hall of Fame and ended his show career by winning Best of Opposite Sex at the 2017 FCRSA National Specialty.  It’s time for Prince Charming to head back to the field, help socialize our puppies and generally be spoiled by Maria.

Prince Charming is showing promise as a sire.  His first three litters have proven that he throws his head and he is improving fronts.  His offspring have his good natured temperament, several have field titles already and he has Champion offspring.  In fact, the litter he sired with our bitch Chick (Gamekeepers) already has 6 pups pointed in the show ring at 16 months old – 4 of them with majors!  His daughter Kate (Windy Hill) was awarded WB/BOW at the 2017 FCRSA National Specialty and his daughter Scrabble (Artic Sun) is major pointed and went Best Puppy in Show in January of 2017.  We are looking forward to hearing more about their accomplishments.

  • Chick’s Pedigree

Chick is Mitch’s new little Rock Star!  ChickWithBrushWPShe is out of the breeding of two Master National Qualifying Flat-coats; Dazzle (CH Gamekeepers Black Diamond CD MH WCX) and Ruff (GCH Flatford Ruffles and Flourishes MH WC) and her pedigree contains generations of Hall of Fame Flat-coats that have excelled in dual purpose endeavors.  There are Group winners, Westminster Winners and Master Hunters galore in her background.

Chick is proving to be a very talented and pretty little girl in her own right.  Breezed through her JH and she tore it up in the show ring.  Chick finished her Championship in just 1 month.  She was “in the purple” every weekend she was out showing.  At the 2015 FCRSA National Specialty, Chick won the highly competitive Working Bitch Class, JAM’d in the Unsteady Singles and earned her WC.  When she completed her time in the show ring, Chick was back in the field earning her SH and WCX.

Chick took some time off to have puppies and had a lovely litter of puppies with Prince Charming.  They turned two years old Jan. 3, 2018 and so far 3 of them are finished Champions, 1 has GCH points, 3 more are pointed, plus field and other performance titles.

Kate and Pippa are our beautiful girls out of the breeding between our Prince Charming and Diana (CH Windy Hill Goddess of The Hunt).  With those parents, a “Royal” litter theme was a given.

Kate is shaping up to be our next conformation superstar.  Full of life and beautiful, Kate finished her JH and then went out to show with Ryan Wolfe and Lisa Bettis.  Kate won multiple breeds over top ranked specials and finished with a bang by going Winners Bitch and Best of Winners at the 2017 FCRSA National Specialty.  Within weeks of that, she then sailed through to her Grand Championship.

Pippa is a precocious thing, has yet to meet a stranger and she’s smarter than a whip.  She finished her JH and WC with ease and is currently training for Senior.  Slower to mature than her sister, she will wait until after her Senior is done to hit the show ring.

We co-own these lovely girls with Sandy Muer, Bob and Sonja Rickert and Leanne Selof.  We are looking forward to watching our girls as they take on the world!
