DC Sunnyvale Point of Interest, JH x Lobo's Noble Gem of Bo Brandy

Dylan was the first dog I ran in field trials. At the time, he was more than I could handle. Every time we turned him loose he’d end up 3 hills away and I’d have to fight off the tears, singing to him to try to convince him to come back! Good thing he always knew best. Despite his amateur handler, Dylan managed to get numerous puppy and derby placements.

Not only did he get 2nd in the 1997 Western Futurity, but he also got the dual dog award, handled in both by Mr. Steve Bailey. I believe it was Steve’s first and last time showing a dog, but I sure appreciate the effort (see pictures below)!

Dylan later went on to win the 1998-1999 Colorado All Age Dog of the Year. He completed his FC with the help of Tracy and Jack Haines. He was a true All Age dog, and a great companion.  Although Dylan passed at almost 15 years old, he was very active and happy until the end.  Luckily, he passed on his wonderful demeanor to Sawyer and Ty, so we can be reminded of him for a long time to come.

As a sire, Dylan has produces some great field trial dogs, show dogs, and companions.  Out of the 4 dogs he sired that were in field competitions, Orlando finished his FC right before he turned 5 years old, Sawyer finished his at 3.5 years old, Jonah at just over 4 years old, and now Ty at 4.5 years old.  There is very limited frozen semen available, and we are saving it for a very special female, at this time, is yet to be determined.  Please contact me if you are interested!

Orlando is big running, confident, and very stylish on point.  He finished his field championship in the Spring of 2013.  He was fun to watch run, and even more fun to watch on point.  If you're ever in CO, make sure to watch out for this guy!
