Well i have wanted to write to you since 7-14-2011 (the day i picked the puppy up
at the Airport) so here goes my comments and observations.
I have been a breeder of Labrador Retrievers for the last 25 or so years and about 10
years ago i decided that Labs are great Duck and Goose dogs but when it comes to hunting Quail,,Pheasants and Woodcock their noses are not as refined as “Bird Dog’s ”
I read as many books as i could on picking out Bird Dogs and their training.
Everything pointed to the German Short Haired Pointers ,so i looked at as many litters as i could and all their
I picked out a puppy that had as many Field Champions in the line as i could find locally only about 5 total champions.
God smiled on me as the puppy was a great dog with great inborn talents and although i have trained many Labs this was the first attempt i have ever experienced with bird dogs.
Molly was a great dog with a great nose and a extreme desire to hunt ,she would have been a Field Champion if i had entered her and
still be out in the field if it wasn’t for Lyme’s Disease with a touch of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever .
I lost her within a few years after being treated and after hunting birds with Labs for a while ,I again realized i needed to get another “Bird Dog”
My search started the end of May this year. I looked for a new puppy at the local newspapers and magazines . I talked to my friends and others at my Gun Club .
I wanted a dog with all the abilities that Molly had ,but i couldn’t find any blood lines that came close to hers’
I decided to look at the larger picture the Internet.
My wife told me that you should get the best puppy you can find and don’t worry about the cost of shipping the dog ,so that was what i decided to do.
I found many ,many puppies for sale, some very cheap ,but nothing compared to the blood line that you ,had for sale.
When i reviewed your puppy’s blood line and talked with you in detail, i was convinced that i wanted one on your dogs.
The puppy was, and is all that you and your pictures represented and i am totally
happy with this little girl, we call “Utah Nakota”
She has only been with us for 12 days and she is sitting and coming back on voice commands and will find any hidden Quail wing within a short distance. She is not pointing yet but with live birds she may start soon , I’m sure.
The pictures you sent did not do her justice as she is truly, perfect in build and temperament. Her colors are as pretty and striking as you could paint
with a canvas .
Between the fees for the Vet. Certificate, Shots, Airfare and Crate, I spent more then i wanted to but ,i would do it again in a heart bet.
The old expression that “You only get what you pay for” defiantly applies here .
If i evaluated what the cost were to buy “Utah Nakota” and what kind of puppy i received I would say that i got the better of the deal.
At this point, I would pay more then i did knowing what i have in “Utah Nakota”
I know that it is possible that she could develop into a complete flop, or my training could be a cause ,but i would “ bet the ranch ” against that happening.
The way i see her is that you made a big mistake getting rid of her , you should have kept her for yourself ,and i think that all the Quail,,Pheasants and Woodcock
in New Jersey and Pennsylvania better start hiding out now, because she’s coming to get them this fall.
I also want to take a minute and thank you ,for your involvement and your patients with me, taking so long to decide on one of your puppies.
I now understand why you picked “Bestgundogs” for your Web Sight it truly applies to you.
