| Blizzard was born in March 1998, while we were in
the middle of one of Calgary's worst winter blizzards on record. The entire City was
shut down, including stores, offices, schools and the University. Warnings not
to venture out were broadcast, and of course Thistle had new
puppies! Luckily, our home has an alternate heat source for when our
boilers don't have electricity - so we stoked up the woodstoves, made hot chocolate and
waited out the wild March blizzard in style.
Blizzard, In my opinion, promises to be one of the best females we have ever bred.
She has good size, structure, substance and movement, though she has a shorter coat it
does not seem to hold her back when it comes to cold water or weather. She has a
willing, easy training style, shows a great deal of talent and loves to look for birds,
and is an all 'round joyful cooperative Griffonne. She just finished her puppy year
and this upcoming hunting season will be her first "real" hunting season.
Much of what we see in her
comes from her dam, Duckpond Roquebluft, but she also carries
some of the best traits of her sire, Ch. Tucker's Georgie, CD CGC.
Blizzard is quite a doggy bitch, and is not as elegant or feminine as her 1/2
Sisters Griffonpoints Great Karma and Griffonpoint
its Time for Valor.
