Kate is jokingly nicknamed "The Corporate Dog" as she is co-owned by 4
people, including me.  Kate's breeder is Cynthia Heiller DVM and the primary
owner of Kate. Cindy sent Kate to me when she was 4 months old so she could
be exposed more to the field and water.  After a few months of having Kate, I
called up Cindy and begged her to let me co-owner her as well.  Since then,
Kate lives 9 to 10 months/year with me.  Kate has extremely strong pointing,
retrieving, and water skills.  She is extremely intelligence and her temperament
is second to none.  Her strongest attribute is her nose but everything else is a
close second.  Her style on honor is the same as her pointing style.  She can
deliver a quail to hand like she is carrying fine china.
 Kate is an exceptional
dog and earned all her titles, DC, FC, AFC, MH, and CH by the time she was
only 3 years and 5 months of age.  And it came so easy for her!  Kate was the
# 1 GWPCA Amateur Gun Dog in 2015 and # 1 GWP with the Northwest Field
Trial Council in 2014.  Kate has had two litters now and will possibly be headed
back to the field to compete in NAVHDA UT.  Kate currently lives with Cindy
Heiller in California now that she is retired from field trialing.  She will most
likely have another litter in 2017.
Kate on her first water retrieve at 5 months old - a
bumper and a pigeon. She has to have it all and if she
can fit a piece of it in her mouth, it is going with her!
Kate is a natural backer and has beautiful breath-taking style.
Her nose is exceptional and almost "super natural".  You
better believe her when she says "those birds are out there"
or you will miss a great shot. It is rare for her to go birdless in
competition and many competitors project their own dog's
potential success on how many birds Kate found that day.

 Kate on Point
Kate won the 2012 GWPCA National
Futurity at the Kistler Ranch in California.
Kate won her Championship title from the show ring with three 5
point majors!  Not only did she win her 5 point majors from the
class bitches but she also went on to take Best of Winners - all
three times!  It's back to the field now where she belongs!
Kate earned her five AKC titles in less than 8 months time.  
Between February 2, 14 to September 20, 14, Kate earned her
CH, DC, FC, AFC, and MH.  All before she was 4 years of age!
Kate finished her Master Hunter title in 6 straight
attempts.  It was an easy title for her to earn as it
is all based on having solid honest manners.
