Violet is the daughter of Baci (CH. Little Brownies Baci) and Pivo (CH. Little Brownies Ceske Pivo). She is currently 12 years of age and has been retired from our breeding program and the field. Violet has earned her AKC Junior and Senior Hunter titles. She demonstrated her hunting prowess both in Michigan and on the prairie and potholes in North Dakota. Taking after her father, Pivo, Violet loved to do it all. She is enjoying a comfortable retirement lounging on one of the dog beds and patroling the property.

Namy is the daughter of Pivo (CH Little Brownies Ceske Pivo) and Cutter (Little Brownies Cooki Cutter). She was the "cover girl" for Purina's Today's Breeder magazine in the fall of 2008. Namy stands 16.5" tall and weighs in at a scant 30 pounds. She shows great promise as a working gun dog and has gone through some extensive formal field training. Namy loves the water - it is hard to keep her out of it - and rooting around the fields for bird and rabbit scent. When our friend, Peggy Will, lost her AWS suddenly and prematurely in the late summer of 2009 she began a search for her next AWS. Namy had been one of Peggy's favorites and so in the spring of 2010 we offered Namy to Peggy on a trial basis. Namy and Peggy quickly became best of friends and Namy has now gone on to live with Peggy fulltime. Once she passed all of her health clearances she was available to come back to us for breeding on occasion. The rest of the time she spent as Peggy's companion in upstate NY. Namy earned her Companion Dog Excellent (CDX) obedience title in August of 2014. She is now retired from breeding but still competes in obedience. She has a housemate in her daughter Ginger, who is also being groomed for obedience work and may one day enter our breeding program. 

The following dogs are owned by others and were used at stud within our breeding program but are now retired:

CH Edie's Lord of the Water StriderStrider - CH Edie's Lord of the Water Strider, RN, FMCh
[Click here to view a pedigree.]
Call name: Strider
Born: June 13, 2007
OFA - ECR (eyes): AWS-EYE15/75M-VPI
OFA Hip: AWS-646F33M-VPI
OFA Thyroid: AWS-TH31/34M-VPI
OFA Cardiac: AWS-CA211/30M/C-VPI
OFA Degenerative Myelopathy: AWS-DM40/93M-VPI

Strider was used at stud in September of 2013. He stands a little taller than 18" and weighs in at 45 pounds of solid muscle. He is owned by Gunnar and Theresa Tokar of Gaithersburg, Maryland. In pursuit of his AKC Championship, Strider was shown by Gunnar who was then 11 to 12 years old. Strider participated in one Eukanuba Invitational, two Westminister Kennel Club shows, and three Purina National Championship shows; earning two Best of Opposites, an Award of Merit and 3 Best of Breeds. Strider has obtained his Rally Novice (RN) title and competes in Flyball dog competitions. In Flyball, Strider holds the historic place of the #1 AWS in breed statistics and has earned the North American Flyball Association title of Flyball Master Champion (FMCh). Strider has an awesome temperament and proves his drive and strength in Flyball Racing and in agility training. He demonstrates his happy-go-lucky disposition to get along with other dogs as a team Flyball dog and living with 6 other dogs of different breeds at home. As you will see, if you review his pedigree, Strider is from a breeding of AKC/UKC CH. Little Brownies Ceske Pivo and UKC CH California Artemis Kali. Bringing the two breeding programs together has worked well in the past and produced some excellent hunting and companion dogs. We anticipate some great puppies from Strider over the next few years.

ZipZip - Wine Country's Zippity Do Da  BN, SH

Zip's JH title certificateCall name: Zip
Born: February 2, 2010
OFA - ECR: AWS-373993
OFA Hip: AWS-681G26M-VPI
OFA Thyroid: AWS-TH37/30M-VPI

Zip was used at stud for the first time in the fall of 2012. We had seen Zip in the summer of 2011 while attending a hunt test in western New York. We loved his temperament, hunting ability, size and coat. Like many of the Wine Country Kennel dogs he reminded us of our own and so we decided that we would keep an eye on his development for future consideration as a possible stud dog. A year later we were once again at another hunt test in New York where we were able to see Zip complete his Junior Hunter and earn the first pass toward his Senior Hunter title. We were very impressed with him and entered into a conversation with his owners regarding having him stand at stud with one or two of our girls. Having successfully combined Little Brownies Kennel and Wine Country Kennel dogs in the past we are excited about this new pairing. Zip hunts both waterfowl and upland game and is a companion to Shawn Church and Shannon Bozeat in upstate New York.
