This is a repeat breeding of our
"H" litter from last summer. We are also planning on keeping a
male for ourselves from this litter.  

Abbey has been one of our top performers since her second hunting season.  She has tremendous
cooperation and has retrieved to hand naturally since she was 10 weeks old.  She holds point
better than any other SM that I have hunted with; it is not uncommon for her to hold point for
several minutes. Abbey pointed a wild Iowa rooster on the last day of the 2005/06 season for
almost 10 minutes until we finally decided to flush the rooster.  As she has never been whoa broke
this is a testament of her natural pointing instinct.  Both of her parents are German imports.  Check
Abbeys page for more information.

Abbey was bred to
Cody vom Apfelbaumbach, a German import, who is owned by Kris Hill the
registrar of the SMCNA.  He is hunted in Nebraska and has a very successful testing record.  He
also has excellent cooperation and pointing instinct.  For more information on Cody you can go to
Hunting Hills web site.     

We are asking $1000 per pup and they should be ready to pick up on October 14, 2006.  We
also ship out of Omaha, NE if needed.  Only Continental and Northwest are available and
shipping is usually just under $250 including the crate.
