Elbe's accomplishments speak for themselves and needless to say, we could not
ask anything more from our foundation dam.  Elbe produced only 3 small-to-
medium size litters to earn these Nationals awards, including one 2xNFC, 4 DCs,
5 FCs, 5 AFCs, 4 MHs, 5 JHs, 1 CD, 1CDX, and 5 CHs titles.

"Elbe"
We were fortunate in the purchase our first two GWPs
(which included Elbe) from experienced breeders, Terry and
Ann Duffin of Von Duffin Kennels and obtaining this quality
blended bloodline.  It is our goal to preserve and improve
these fine quality bloodlines that  we started with in 1997.
GWPCA National Recognition
Elbe is on the small size but don't under estimate her size.  Though Elbe is a
small package, she has no problems in retrieving 10-12 pound geese at a full
run.  It is all about desire.  She naturally "places" herself in a blind and watches
the sky.  One only needs to watch her look up out of tops of her eyes to know the
geese are coming.  She loves to chase them down if they get up and try to fly off.

Elbe started waterfowl hunting at 6 months old.  She is
famous for retrieving wounded birds (from other
hunters) while hiking to our blind.  Some days, half our
bag limit was reached before we ever fire our shotguns.
