J - litter
out of Ragweeds Echo by FTCH Balmuir Replay of Cairngryffe.
On July 20, 2020, Ragweeds Echo, aka "Echo", whelped seven yellow pups, four males and three females.
Echo is a lovely offspring out of our fabulous Fendawood Gin. She shines with drive and style and is a fixed member of our quail hunting team. She is never too shy to turn over cover and she’s a specialist on wounded game, which proves her amazing nose.
Echo and her sister Eden are out of the very last litter sired by our one and only Int. FTCH Ragweeds Travel.
With Travel as sire, we have a guarantee for game finding abilities to the highest level, paired with a superb temperament. In addition to two IGL Winners, Travel sired many more FTCHs and FTWs in Europe and the UK.
Echo’s litter brother Ragweeds Express won his first trial January 2020 in the the UK.
Basil, the sire of this litter, is a beautiful fox red dog. Before Basil joined us in the US he was trained and trialed by Kevin Haynes in the UK. Kevin describes him as follows: „From the beginning this dog caught your eye with his unbelievable drive, style and conformation. An absolute delight to train due to his honesty and willingness to please, a combination which enabled him to progress quickly in his training. His conformation and style showed early signs of a champion in the making.
From the start his future looked bright. His first award was 3rd and Guns Choice followed by a COM, then a win which let him proceed into opens.
2017 was his year being awarded 2nd in a two day open, then winning his next one, which qualified him for the Championship and made him up to FTCh. Along with many working test awards including Open wins and 2nd place at Scone Gamefair Basil has shown consistency in his ability to go the distance and compete against the absolute best dogs in the UK.“
His offspring has also been proven to contain his qualities as Kevin won with his son Kellasbrae Rusty of Cairngryffe at only 22 months old then later that year compete in eight open trials, in which he was featured in the awards 5 times.
