It appears that one female will be brown and white and all the rest of the pups will be some type of roan. If the new owner of a pup wants to help come up with the registered name that is fine (we must approve it), but it must start with the letter "D," it can't be one we have used before (list of used names is below), and must follow the following format:
GOSCH'S DONNER GOSCH'S DUKE GOSCH'S DYNAMITE GOSCH'S DIVINE DELLA GOSCH'S DUCK COMMANDER GOSCH'S DAMEN VERMEER GOSCH'S DER JAEGER GOSCH'S DARA GOSCH'S DIAMOND LILLY
Here is a little info about Trooper written by his owner, Ron Hines:
Trooper is the first SM I have owned, but it has been very enjoyable. He has taught me many things during our training and hunting time. Trooper is a natural hunter. He points, loves to retrieve, and his nose is very good. He scored a maximum score of 112 on the NAVHDA Natural Ability Test on his first try. He even retrieved the pheasant back to me over 100 yards on the tracking portion of the test. He is always eager to go hunting and can go all day. He is very diligent on wounded birds and we lose very few with him. We have hunted primarily pheasants, quail, and some grouse. I have worked with him on ducks, but have only taken him one time and we didn't shoot any that day. He was well behaved in the blind and at the end of the day retrieved a decoy after smelling them all and not finding any real ducks. Trooper is not only a pleasure to hunt with, but is very much a part of the household and a joy to spend time with in any setting.
