GREAT POINTER PUPS
This litter was whelped October 27, 2007. Six males and one female.
Woody Touchstone, the breeder, took one male for the stud fee. Since I only keep females in my kennel, I traded him a male for a future female from his kennel.
Woody won the following honors in 2007.
2007 NBHA RU NATIONAL
OPEN DOG HANDLER
My hunting partner who only keeps males took the third male.
The other dogs were sold.
Here are my favorite pictures that tell the natural ability of these pointers. This is Star, my female from the litter, pointing at four months. I have not worked on her style at all. This is natural ability.

The sire is NC Slate Doc Attitude, winner of the 2005-2006 National Open Shooting Dog of the Year.
The dam is Elhew Diana.
Diana produced a previous litter of pups that turned into great dogs. Currently, my best dog is Jane who just turned eight years old. She is easy to handle and is the best "dead bird" hunting pointer I have ever seen. She is calm and methodical around birds. My partner took a dog from the same litter and it served him well.
The dogs in the previous litter were a little "soft" and needed to be brought along slowly in the training process. Love and attention worked better than hard discipline in training them.
Below is Diana's Pedigree as completed by the late Robert Wehle from whom we purchased Elhew Diana. Mr. Wehle did not name dogs that he sold. He let the new owners name the dog. This is the reason her name and registration number are blank on this pedigree. Her FSB number is 1484342.
