Joined Navhda and Mo Uplands in 1999. My breed of choice is the Deutsch Kurzhaar and I test my dogs in the Navhda and Nadkc ( German ) testing systems. During this time period I ran 6 dogs through NA, 4 through UT and 2 through to the Invitational. I have owned GSP's starting in 1974 and have produced two Deutsch Kurzhaar litters. I love to upland and waterfowl hunt.

I've been with Navhda & Mo Uplands 1 year. My breed of choice is the GSP. I'm happily married to Daniel with 2 little girls, 3 shorthairs and a black lab. My most memorable dog is the one who got me started, my gsp Raven. We both got our first wild bird together and it was a memory that will forever stay with me.

I joined NAVHDA in 2017 after listening to the Hunting Dog Podcast. My favorite breed is the GSP. My favorite dog was Macintosh Bobo Barney - He was an all liver GSP I grew up with, and my dads best bird dog. I now have a little boy of my own and he is being raised with an all liver GSP - VC Too Much Jager.
