Fiona's 2018 litter produced six gorgeous puppies and we just couldn't resist this guy.  Donovan started his show career at 4 months old in the Beginner Puppy class and at his first show won Best of Breed Puppy and Beginner Puppy Sporting Group Second!!  At 6 months he won his first major show as Best of Winners and followed that a couple of months later by going 2nd in the impressive Bred By Exhibitor class at the German Shorthaired Pointer Club of America National Specialty Show.   His Championship was finished with 4 majors.

 

With no formal training, Donovan earned his Junior Hunter title in consecutive legs - one with a near-perfect score of 9.75!!  Now training for his Senior title, he shows tons of promise.  In his first AKC Scent Work trial Donovan took 1st place in the Container Novice search.  He also boasts the NACSW Odor Recognition Title and NW1 title, as well as the Canine Good Citizen title, an AKC Trick Dog title, All Dogs Parkour title, and is training for a Rally title.  

Donovan has all health clearances necessary for the CHIC designation and is available as stud to approved bitches.

Seamus (pronounced SHAY-mus), is a sweet mush at home and does everything asked of him with gusto.  His Junior Hunter title was earned easily with four consecutive qualifying legs.  Seamus also loves obedience work and earned his Rally Novice title in three consecutive legs.  He has also earned his first title in the Cyber Rally-O Dance Division.  He is major-pointed in the breed ring, winning over some impressive competition.  

Seamus excels at K9 NoseWork®.  He earned his NW1 title in 5th place out of 38 entries and his NW2 title in 2nd place, placing 1st in the Interior Building Search and 2nd in the Exterior Search.

 

Seamus is the first and only German Shorthaired Pointer to have earned the NW3 ELITE title by passing NW3 three times in 1st place - fastest time overall!!! He has also earned all NW3 element titles with placements:  Containers, Interiors, Exteriors and Vehicles.  

 

Seamus had to be retired after this amazing achievement , which he earned while battling cancer and laryngeal paralysis.  We bid him our final goodbye on December 28, 2020.  He has left a huge void in our hearts.

February 13, 2002 - August 15, 2017

 

The first GSP to join our family.  Max was bred by Up N'Adam's Kennels in Connecticut.  His intelligence and desire to please made him extremely easy and fun to train.  Max won his first major in conformation as Best of Breed and also competed in AKC Rally, earning his Rally Novice title easily with a perfect score and fastest time at the Philadelphia National Dog Show.  Rally Advanced was challenging, but Max took that title home as well.  He earned his Junior Hunter title in consecutive tests with little formal training, very high scores, and nice compliments from the judges.  

 

Max earned his Therapy Dog certification and became a favorite "friendly dog" for Canine Good Citizen evaluators and our demo-dog for training classes.  He was ever the patient gentleman with each new litter of puppies and loved his cuddle time on the couch with us.

On August 15, 2017, we said goodbye to our dear friend.  He lives on in his many get, and in our hearts, forever.
