     Griffonpoints Great Karma (Karma) was born in August of 1997.  Karma is from the first litter of our beloved Duckpond Roquebluft (Thistle) who was bred by Ralph Nodine of Maine, USA.  Her sire is Griffonpoint Wiley Edge FD, who is owned and trained by Murray Roth .... Wiley has the distinction of being the first Griffonpoint Griffon to achieve a CKC field dog title, along with a high score in test of 96%. 

     Karma is a very intelligent, charming Griffonne, who has perfected the art of escape.  She has jumped/climbed/manuvered herself out of so many kennels and fences that we are no longer surprised when she turns up on the doorstep, waiting to be let into the house.  This intelligence does have its challenges, but most of all it is a blessing, and something that must be channelled in order to keep her content.

      Dispite her smaller size, Karma is a bigger running Griffonne.   She sweeps a field wisely seeking distant objectives, yet is still tuned in to the slightest scent on the wind, and will turn on a dime when called back.  She is also bold in the water and determined while swimming after a wingtipped duck.
