Blue Shaquille x Houston’s Belle’s Choice  Pedigree

Chardonnay is a leggy, 40-lb., dog with a beautiful head and uncommon markings. She is a strong bird finder, is naturally staunch and backs. Chardonnay has a long stride that easily carries her over the ground and a style in motion that is both exuberant and exciting. Her loftiness on point is breathtaking—whether pointing ruffed grouse, sharp-tailed grouse or woodcock. She placed in every grouse trial she was entered and won the Minnesota/Wisconsin Derby of the Year award in 2011.Northwoods Prancer  Pointer, whelped March 22, 2008.  White, Orange & Ticked
Dashaway x Fallset Fate  Pedigree

Prancer is a beautiful, 45-lb., dog with a nice head and an even mask. She is very intelligent and has a wonderful disposition. Prancer has a great nose, naturally backs and retrieves to hand. She is impressive to watch with her driving, powerful stride. Prancer is a focused hunter but hunts at a moderate range and handles easily—perfect qualities for a member of Jerry’s grouse-guiding string. She is out of Dashaway x Fallset Fate and so comes by her grouse-finding ability naturally. Prancer’s first litter by CH Westfall’s Black Ice produced eight exceptional females, including Northwoods Vixen, a puppy Jerry and Betsy kept.
