Our newest superstar, baby “Emery” caught my eye early on — she is Zene’s doppelgänger in more ways than just appearance. Sweet like sugar but with extra spice and an independent but thoughtful streak. She is incredibly biddable and eager to please but can think for herself which became evident early on in her puppy socialization and introduction to bird work.
She finished her Championship title at the tender age of 7 months old with three huge Majors at Specialty/Supported Entries, and a big Bred By Exhibitor Group 2 during the competitive SoCal Sporting Dog Fanciers show. What a thrill to show this gorgeous puppy! At ten months old we started prep work for the NAVHDA Natural Ability Test and less than a month later, she received a Prize III, scoring 4’s (Prize I equivalent) in Nose, Cooperation and Water and the top rating in Pointing. We are so proud of her efforts. This was our first time ever testing in NAVHDA.
At just over a year old, she had FIVE titles to her name! She finished her Grand Championship with *five* GCH Majors (owner handled) and will work towards advanced Hunt titles in late 2020.

The day after finishing her CH title, she took back-to-back Best of Breed wins for two 5 Point Grand Champion Majors – and she made the cut both days in the Sporting Group; she went onto finish her GCH tile with FIVE GCH Majors! She easily completed her JH (Junior Hunter) title and Rally Novice (RN) title. Her progeny include a Best In Specialty Winner (BISS) and Group Placer as well as six (6) Champions and a 7th who needs a single to finish, as well as Obedience and Hunt titles.
