MHR, WR, SR Misty, WC, JH,


Our memories of Misty (she passed away due to a surgery-related issue in 2019): Misty is our foundation dog (mom to Bear and Cali). Misty is very social, sweet and loving with us and with strangers; but don't let her sweet nature or her smaller size fool you. She is incredibly smart, is an excellent marker, and has proven to be a very hardy hunting dog. Not only has she achieved several hunting titles and certificates, but she is skilled and focused enough to have earned a 4th place award at the Western Arizona Gun Dog's Big 5 Singles Event. Seventeen dogs were entered in the event which required 3 land marks and 2 water marks. She scored 95, out of 100 possible points. Only the Top 5 dogs received awards. We truly enjoy watching her work. She has great mouth habits and does not even leave a mark on birds or other objects she retrieves. She is a GREAT hunting dog in both skill and temperament, all the while remaining a valued member of our family. We just could not ask for a better dog than Misty. Misty completed her AKC Senior Hunter title as well as achieving her North American Hunting Retriever Association Master Hunting Retriever title, making her the 3rd poodle in history to achieve that level of proficiency-- our Titan is the 2nd. (To read a brief statement about what is required of a dog to attain a NAHRA Master Hunting Retriever title, click here and scroll down to The Senior Category.) We are so in love with "all things" Misty that we chose to keep two of her pups, Nat'l/Int'l CH SR Bear WC, CGC and Int'l CH Cali. Misty has produced pups with temperaments necessary for service work (some of her pups are acting in that capacity). Misty’s OFA Verification (CHIC 52943) UC Davis Genetic Diversity Results
