     Prancing Acrobat (Twig) was born in 1991.  This was the first litter to be whelped at Griffonpoint, before we had a kennel name or had educated ourselves about genetics or about the breed.     

    As it happened, luck was with us, and this breeding "nicked".  The pups were consistant and good, and we did repeat this same breeding in order to produce good quality hunting dogs.  

    Twig, in her youth, was a dynamic hunting partner.  Closer working than some, but quick and energetic in the field.  She was a very happy worker, always a gentle retrieve and thorough search of likely cover.   

      Twig contributed her strengths to our breeding program.
