Whenever we breed one of our females, we always put a lot of study & thought into the selection of the potential sires. We wanted to breed D J’s Latest Flame (aka “Kelli”), who is a daughter of GNG CH/GNG Invitational CH TerHaar’s Elvis, to a special dog. We were fortunate enough to obtain some frozen semen from GNG CH/GNG Invitational CH/6X CH Stillmeadow’s Jim. Jim & Elvis are two of our all-time favorite grouse CH’s, so this breeding seemed like a natural. Jim was a solid bird dog, with lots of style, and those running in the woods today know that Elvis is. We had owned 2 Jim daughters over the years, and they were solid bird dogs as well, and great mothers!
“Kelli” whelped 2 males and 2 females on May 9, and they are all that we hoped for at this point. All tricolors, fat, healthy and full of themselves. All are surely destined to be outstanding bird dogs. All have new homes, but at some point we will likely repeat this breeding.
