We have an excellent litter of pointing lab pups on the way. Our female, CPR Battlemtn's For Whom The Bell Tolls has been bred to 4xGMPR Iowa Pointing Labs Grizzly SH.
Below is the info on the litter's sire from his owner:
Griz is a record setting dog in the APLA by becoming the first 4X GMPR at less than 2 years of age. At 23 months of age he broke the previous record of his half brother by over 6 months. Griz also went 5/5 in AKC senior 1 year of age! Griz will compete for his AKC Master title in the spring of 2012. I also ran Griz in his and my first shoot to retrieve event and finished a very respectable third (it would have been 2nd if I shot better). This finish was over 28 traditional pointing breed dogs in the pointing division. The event was the Pheasants Forever National Quail Championship in Kansas City and put on by Bird Hunters United. We plan to run more of these events next year!
Griz is one of those special dogs that has a huge motor in the field, but is very controllable and wants nothing more than to be a team player. Griz has an unbelievable demeanor for a dog with his power. He is truly a gentleman that is extremely intelligent & confident, but doesn't have a dominate bone in his body. He is an excellent marking dog and is rock solid steady at the line. Griz has been a natural pointing dog from day 1 and point's way off birds. He is extremely reliable and is allowed to run big in the CRP fields of South Dakota or comes in close for the heavy cover sloughs of Iowa.
Griz has a loaded pedigree including 6-Grand Master Pointing Retrievers, 7-Master Hunters, 8-Amature Field Champions, 5-Field Champions,1-Qualified All Age, 1- 2xNational Amateur Field Champion, and 4- APLA Hall of Fame dogs! Some of the biggest names in the Pointing lab world and the Field Trial world have come together to create a truly exceptional animal!

The dam of this litter is CPR Battlemtn's For Whom the Bell Tolls. She is my personal hunting dog and family companion. Bella is trifactored black and an athletically built 60 lbs. She has a ton of natural point and retrieving drive, but can turn it off in the house and be very calm. Bella is out of 4XGMPR HRCH Clouds Bold Bear of Nereus SH and CPR Battlemtn's Lota Hot Chocolate.
