We lost Lil back in December to a tragic accident. We miss her dearly…

”Lil” (Stonebroke’s Lucky Lil) is the result of 18 years of linebreeding. Her lines go back to our first Springer, “Keluke’s Wild Rose”. Rosie was the granddaughter of 3 National Champions…. 2XNFC Wind Riding Streak, NFC Burcliff’s Brandi, and CNFC Sherwood’s Ace In The Hole. Her sire is our old “Beeter” dog (Stonebroke’s King Keluke) and her mother is “Stonebrokes Bluff Creek Tess”. “Tess” was the second pick out of the top litter in the country in 1997 (NFC Denalisuflo’s Ring and NAFC Kane’s Bluff Creek Annie). Lil is a pup we kept out of Beeter and Tess’s last litter (both are now retired).
Lil is a very agile, athletic dog. She is a very wiry 35 pounds. Lil is white and liver in color. She has been an extremely easy dog to train…..very biddable. Her retrieve is solid, she loves the water, and like our other dogs she’s bird crazy. The fall of 2005 was her first year in the field and we were very pleased with her fieldwork. She’s an easy handling dog and has incredible stamina. She’s just a hard hunting, quality gundog in all respects.
Lil’s Pennhip evaluation placed her in the 80th percentile for the breed (excellent hips). She is also CERF certified.
Temperamentwise, she is also like our other Springers. She is very gentle and loving. She just eats up attention and loves training sessions.
