Our Toller…

AKC/NSDTRC USA CH HoneyRun Patriot Games SH WCI “Hollywood”

HollywoodBISWP

Hollywood is one cool dog!  He earned his Championship after only being shown for three weekends.  His wins include: Winners Dog, Best of Winners and Best Puppy at the NSDTRC National Specialty; multiple Best of Breed wins over group placing specials; All-Breed Sweepstakes “Best In Show” winner at Skokie Valley Kennel Club on December 15, 2007 and a Sporting Group 2 in Indianapolis.

CoolHollywoodWPBut he is not all beauty, Hollywood loves field work.  He is currently working on his Master Hunter title and has earned three legs so far.  Hollywood is also an outstanding pheasant dog and is a favorite among Mitch’s hunting buddies when they can find some time in their busy schedules to fit in a day’s hunt.  During training sessions, you can find Hollywood riding on the ATV with his best buddy Mitch, helping to set up the marks and lay out the blinds, or hanging out by the truck getting his “cool” on!  One thing is for sure, once you meet Hollywood, you will never forget him.


Our Labradors…

Bear Country Love Of The Game MH “Bliss”

Bliss03TNLogSMMitch’s girlfriend!  While Mitch was training Bristol, (HRCH Carronade’s Thunder Valley MH)he just knew that when she had pups, he would get his next Labrador from her.  And when Clint and Sherie told him they had decided to breed Bristol to Grady (FC/AFC Cody Cut A Lean Grade), that just made his decision all the more perfect.

Mitch and Bliss

Mitch absolutely made the right decision and he loves her to pieces.  She is a happy little thing, never stops wagging her tail and loves to work.  Maria asked Mitch why he named her Bliss (there is nothing “blissful” about her personality!!) and he said it was because she is blissful to train.  Super smart, super birdy, super charged…that’s Bliss.  She earned her Master Hunter with style and is now concentrating on Field Trials.  She took sometime off for a nice litter with Colby (HRCH Hold My Beer And Watch This MH).  The pups are showing great promise.

Watermarks Rock N Roll Girl Tina JH “Tina”

Mitch and our dear friend Mike Garrity co-own this little spitfire!  Tina was bred by Dr. Mary Tatum and is the daughter of “Emmitt” NFC FC Watermarks Running Back.  According to Mitch, Tina is “One smart ball of fire and a heck of a lot of fun to train!”.  After getting her basic here at Gamekeepers, Mike sent Tina to Andy Attar where she has been training for and running Field Trials.  She is one talented girl and we hope she will be our first FC/AFC.

Gamekeepers Whiskey A Go Go “Bourbon”

Bourbon is Bliss’ daughter sired by Colby (HRCH Hold My Beer And Watch This MH).  Smart, birdy and cute as heck, we are looking forward to watching this little girl grow up.
