Here we go again.
« on: November 30, 2017, 03:53:25 PM »
Two weeks ago I unexpectedly lost my 3.5yr old brit to a severe alergic reaction to something in the environment.  The anaphylactic shock put her into severe seizures that she never recovered from.  Iím still heartbroken because she was not only a great house dog, but a hell of bird dog, and an awesome friend..... I told myself after we lost her that Iíd take a while before getting another brittany.  Well, I guess ďa whileĒ is about two weeks. While a new pup will never take place of the one I lost, Iím looking forward to a new beginning with this little guy.  Should have him home in a couple weeks.

 :yeah:

We were going to wait a while after losing our last dog, Loki, but that wasn't to be.  I think it was more than two weeks though....   :chuckle:

Thanks guys.  His pedigree is pretty stacked as he is out of this years NFC who is also last years NAFC Brittany. With any luck he will be a good one.......In talks with my trainer, he told me he kept the breeding rights to one of the other females from the litter of the pup I lost.   Turns out, he plans on breeding that female the next time she comes in. I put in a request for a female from that litter as well, and preferably a roan female, like their mom......  I retired their mom this year after Nationals.  At 9 1/2, she put down two of the best runs at the Amateur and Open nationals, but her style leaves a little to be desired at her age. None the less, she finishes her career tied for the winningest 1hr female in brittany history, and also tied for the winningest 1hr All Age female in breed history.  She has 26 1hr placements, and 25 of those are All Age placements.  No other female in history has the All Age, and total 1hr placements.  To say Iím proud is an understatement. I have no doubt if continued to to run her, she would break both records, but I made the decision at last years Nationals that this would be her last year competing on the competitive circuit.  Getting a grand-pup out of her is something I couldnít turn down. Hopefully the litter will have plenty of male and female pups. I still miss my ďRowdyĒ girl, and itís going to suck not hunting with, and spoiling her this hunting season, but her memory will live on.

The past dogs will always hold a place in our hearts and the next ones will keep us dreaming for tomorrow. Congratulations on your puppy.

I am in the same boat Jet.  We lost our 3.5 year old over labor day.  I have been waiting a bit but have my name on a couple of waiting list.  Hopefully, this help ease the pain a bit, and best of luck with the new puppy.

I have an older Brit and was lucky enough to find a 3 yr old Brit on Craigslist where the family didn't think he was getting enough exercise. Glad I picked him up he is great companionship for the older one. Its tough to see the older ones skills diminishing but he's still a trooper with the new one running circles around him.

Sorry for the loss.

Nice looking pup, like how much white he has. It makes a huge difference when hunting in the thick timber and sage.
