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!

for breeding with Oudi on the 11th.
Gestation is just over two months.

ultrasound mid January to confirm pregnancy

I met Jessica in Idaho (she and Ed drove from TX to
ID to visit relatives), picked up Dancer and headed on
home. Dancer is very happy to be home!
Ultrasound today shows the presence of pups!

"fat-&-sassy" already so she should have a

we have 7 pups, 5 males and 2 females.
The pups are doing very well. They will
have their dew claws and tails done Monday AM
as well as a vet health check. After
that we will figure out each person's place in
line... Please be patient. It has
been a long but good day. The pup photos
below are in order of their birth. Pup
theme names will be names of dances in honor
of their mother Dancer.

"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
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

Classic/Shooting Dog Championship
with 5 finds! That shows me he
