12-4-18: Dancer came into heat 12-4-18 so breeding should happen in mid December to Christmas.  That means the pups should be ready to go home in early April, perfect timing for spring pup fun and for being able to hunt next season!  We are excited!

1-15-19: Ultrasound today shows the presence of pups!
2-3-19:  Dancer is getting quite "fat-&-sassy" already so she should have a nice sized litter mid-month.

Dancer is an all-a-round fun Brittany to be with!  She is very devoted to her humans, hunts with super intensity, loves to fetch, pulls me like a sled dog when I run her on the bike and is a couch potato in the house.  She is smart as a whip!

Oudi on point, 2016.

From Wingra Brittanys:
By DC Masked Jack of DiamondsDC Almaden's Lone Shadow Dancer
Bred by Sherry Larsen & FG Larsen & Sara Hellett
DOB: 3/12/12.  OFA: BS-16513G24M-VPI
PennHIP: 0.46L and 0.44R (Reference #912470)

"Oudi came to us from Sherry Larsen in Clovis, California. He has a truly effervescent personality--for Oudi every day is a great day and his enthusiasm for life is infectious. His name, which is pronounced "out-ee", is for the famous escape artist Harry Houdini (hOUDIni). On his first day with us Oudi managed to escape his x-pen, crate and climb over two baby gates. It took us awhile to decide on a name for him, but "Under Lock and Key" seems to suit him perfectly. Oudi went to summer camp with Ed Tillson of Tequila Kennels in the summer of 2013 and, fortunately for us, Ed had the patience and the expertise to recognize Oudi's potential. With Ed, Oudi picked up multiple derby placements and after a respite at home to finish his show title, Oudi came on strong in adult stakes in 2016. He kicked off the fall with multiple adult placements in big, competitive stakes. He finished his DC title with a 2nd place in the Grand Open Limited Gun Dog Stake at the Iowa Brittany Club in 2017. Since then Oudi has become a strong contender in the Midwest field trial circuit. He won the ABC Gun Dog Classic in May of 2018 and completed the year by winning the 2018 Garmin Award, which recognizes the top Brittany shooting dog in the country! 

In the show ring Oudi won Best Puppy at his first show which happened to be the Iowa Brittany Club Specialty. He's been to the ABC National Specialty three times and placed in a lovely 6-9 month puppy class in 2012, the open dog class the following year and the field trial dog class in 2016. He finished his show championship in June of 2014 in twelve shows with three majors."

Note from Todd:  I saw Oudi win the Open Gun Dog at our Montana Brittany Club field trial in August, 2018.  He is pictured on page 12 of the September '18 edition of the American Brittany Club magazine winning the ABC Gun Dog Classic/Shooting Dog Championship with 5 finds!  That shows me he is a real Bird Finding Machine!
