We got Luke from Sunnyvale kennels in Washington as a puppy. He had the best sense of humor, stealing pillows and pulling my sister and me around the house by our wrists. He was such a character not only in the house, but in the show ring. After my mother, Tracy Haines (then Christensen) finished him as a show champion, I was able to show him in Junior Showmanship, although I think Luke thought he was showing me! He loved to show and would blaze around the ring and it was all I could do to keep from tripping and falling! Tracy also handled Luke to both his JH and his FC titles, making him one of 3, and the only male, 8th generation Dual Champion. The other two 8th generation DCs were his half-sisters.
Luke naturally sired his last litter (12 pups!) at 14 years old. He died in his sleep 6 months later at 15. Most of Luke’s puppies went to field trial or hunting homes. He has produced many field champions, some of whom were show pointed. Luke was not only a great competitor, but he was a loving companion. He will be remembered fondly by many for years to come.
Some of his more recent pups out of frozen semen litters are Ch FireStarter's Point of View, "Arson," Ch Powder River's Boiling Point, "Cali," major pointed (12 show points) and multiple field placing DeCan's Fire Starter, "Hali," multiple field placing DeCan Point of Interest, "Mark," along with many others. Luke can be found in the pedigrees of almost all of the FireStarter Dogs too, so his legacy will live on for decades to come!
