Hall of Fame

The vast majority of our pups go to homes where they are hunting/family companions but over the years we’ve placed a few pups with folks who field trial, do the Hunt Tests, etc. Here are a few of our pups that have done well in competition….

  1. Love the website.
    In looking at your “Hall of Fame” page…I get kind of misty eyed.
    My wife, Laura and I have been lucky enough to have owned some awsome dogs that came via your springers and Rob and Shelly Barlow’s.
    A year ago, we lost our wonderful “Cricket” (Sire: Whitewater’s Jazztime; Dam: Whitewater’s Windryden Sprite) to a nerve disorder. Amazingly her mom “Sprite” was still alive at the time.
    We still have our “Beags” (Sire: Stonebroke’s River Scout; Dam: Whitewater’s Drumbeat) Beags is 10 and still hunts like a 2 year old. She’s still a chunk of energy!
    When “Cricket” was put down, we went and picked up “Willie” or Whitewater’s Shotgun Willie from Rob and Shelly (Sire: Whitewater’s Mountain Dew [Cricket’s brother], Dam: Whitewater’s Drumbeat) Thus…our “Beags” and “Willie” have the same mother and both are closely related to our departed “Cricket”.
    Keep up the good work.
    I hope to stop in some time as I drive by and show you how “Beags” looks now days. It is always late when I go by.
    Please keep on breeding these wonderful lines that you and the Barlows have developed.
    Not only are they great hunters…they have awesome peronalities and give a huge amount of love.
    We know Beags won’t last forever, she turned 10 on July 25

  2. Great to see you guys still breeding great dogs. I too owned a male pup from the breeding of Wings and Yankee. Although we never competed on a big scale we did win quit a few local “bird Trials”. Tracker was my dogs name and sad to say he passed in 2010 at the age 12.With a professional touch of training I know this dog could have been a great champion, but he was still the greatest hunter and friend i could of ever asked for. Thanks for a great run.
