Positive qualities this dog brings to a breeding: Orig sold as a hunting dog, a personal situation brought him back to me, at 6 yrs old. Great attitude and after he got use to a multiple dog home, we tried out hand at a hunt test since that was what he had been used for — He was just great and handled well, then it was time for formal obedience, and he also did well, ok –shall we try the ring — Yes — and his final major came at 11 years young ( he was a handful in the ring – so proud)

Sire of the Tri-Sett MM litter (2001):

Ch Tri-Sett Eastcoast Edition

Whiskey came back to me at the age of 6, having been a housedog and a hunter. He easily earned his JH title in consecutive tests and is lovely on point, handles easily in the field — with both a stylish run and point.

He OFA’d good at 90 months and now needs only one major to finish. Born in April 1991, age will be against him, but his attitude is wonderful and he thinks the ring is fun and games — he is hard to keep going at a smooth pace but we’ll keep trying!

He did it! On May 3, 2002, Whiskey finished at the York County Kennel Club show, going Winners Dog for the final major he needed!
