Some forty years ago I was hunting over Dave McGinnis' German
Shorthaired Pointers; Greif dogs that were some of the most marvelous
dogs you have ever seen!
It was about ten years before I could have one of my own and Dave came
up with a NFC/FC Frulord’s Tim pup (Tim's Magic Man). That turned out
to be a dog for all time. Unfortunately the “good die young” and I lost
him before he was four. Also that pup got me into the Field Trial
game. Back then we had honest dogs, honest people and honest
judges. Thirty some years later I still have those honest Greif dogs. My
dogs are hunted extensively and always have been . I have killed several
thousand Chukers over dogs, and I think I know what a High Desert dog
Each Fall I take several dogs back to South Dakota for pheasant
hunting. I could not be more pleased with my dog's abilities.
My dogs have range, speed, stamina, pattern and great hunting
instincts. They, point, back, swim, track, and retrieve. They are
intelligent, trainable, dogs with drive and desire, temperament
and conformation, plus plenty of just plain good looks. They have
everything that makes them the kind of high class dog you would like to
I have been a past president of the Oregon Shorthair Club and the
Northwest Pointing Dog Association I organized and ran most of the
German Shorthaired Pointer trials in the 80’s and early 90’s. I also did the
same for quite a few of the Pointing Dog trials plus some Regional trials. I
have written and copyrighted a Judges Book for use in judging dogs at
field trials. And having judged well over a hundred field trails, I find it
actually works! And, I have personally bred Field Champions and
Amateur Field Champions as well as puppy and derby winners.
So if you want a dog that is a purebred, German Shorthaired Pointer,
OFA'd and legally DNA’d, completely health guaranteed, then let me know
and I will see if I can get you one too.
