Gambler's Charley Parkhurst - Charley was a true bird dog who's life ended tragically along with a kennel mate, Annie, from the bullets of an unidentified neighbor. When Charley left us she was one point shy of her AFC and ranked the number 3 gun dog in the state of Colorado. She ran a very forward race at a shooting dog range. We miss her very much at MasonRidge.
MasonRidge's Ajax Rebel (Jack) - Jack came to us from John and Judy Marinelli of Ajax Kennels in Michigan. Jack breezed through his juvenile points and is now one point shy of his FC. Jack finished his juvenile stakes and was considered a legitimate All Age prospect however since I compete our dogs on foot, Jack has settled in to a big shooting dog. In late October of 2009 Jack finished as Runner Up for the American Brittany Club's Western All Age Futurity. We were the only amateurs to compete in the event. We are working on Jack's final 1 Pt. for his FC.
MasonRidge's Maverick (Dude)- Dude was bred here at MasonRidge by Jack and Katie. Dude has won his juvenile champion points in AKC and has started working on his "broke dog" points. He has been a Journeyman in broke dog stakes placing 2nd and 3rds but recently placed first in a 20 dog Open Gundog event in New Mexico. He as also placed in American Field, Derby. He has a forward race and hits the right places. He is a sweet dog who loves people.
MasonRidge's Etta Place (Etta)- Etta is one of two dogs we have by FC Kolicko's Cuervo Joker and our Katie. Etta has all of her juvenile points and runs big like her All Age dad. Etta has thrown some very nice pups that are making great gun dogs.
MasonRidge, Annie Double Shot (Annie)- In 2014 we decided to adjust our foundation bloodlines to bring out the traits that appealed to us that were evident in our female, Gambler's Charley Parkhurst. Charley was a Gambler dog through and through but we believed that Masked Shoshoni War Chief blood was a big part of her drive and "snap" in the field. One of Chief's "get" was Bourbon XIII who produced many wonderful field trial dogs. When the breeder contacted me to tell me of a line bred litter of Bourbon pups available I jumped on it. We are proud to have Annie as one of our pack and we look forward to her contributions to our future foundation lines.
MasonRidge, Ajax Iced Liberty (Libby)- Shortly after we committed to bringing in Annie, I got a call from Judy Marinelli asking if I would be interested in a Artificial Insemination breeding sired by their Hall of Fame dog Ajax VII and their fine female, Darcy. We had past discussions on a potential AI breeding of Ajax so I could not pass up the opportunity to acquire Libby. She is a "piece of work" and we love her.
MasonRidge's Sundance (kid)- Kid is another "in kennel" breeding between our original stud dog Doc and our first girl Annie. Doc and Annie brought strong champion lines such as NFC Gambler's Ace in the Hole and Nolan's Last Bullet to our foundation lines. Kid has his juvenile points.
K Nine's High Caliber- Callie comes from K Nine Bird Dog Kennels in Coolidge, Arizona. She is a daughter of 2xnafc Maxwell's Blew By You II.
Doc Holiday's Katie Elder- Katie is a second generation "kennel bred" dog from MasonRidge. She is a pup from Doc and Annie just like Kid but a earlier breeding. Her competition career was short due to an illness that took me away from the sport for over a year. We retired Katie as a brood bitch after 4 litters feeling she has made her contribution to our lines.
