    My sister bought him 12 years ago from a breeder near Montreal. He lived in with her in the St Paul till he was 6.5. Never hunted until he came to us that Fall. He is really a good hunter. Definitely on the glide slope of his career though.

    There is a French Spaniel breeder by Dodge Center, MN. His name is Paul Fischenich. I hunted with him and some of his dogs in South Dakota about 10 years ago. Very nice dogs.

    Unfortunately there was a freak accident with this litter, and none of the female pups survived. So I will be back in the market for a pup as soon as I get my deposit back from the breeder. If anybody knows of available pups from a reputable breeder, please post or PM. Thanks!

    I haven't 100% decided what I am going to do yet, but I imagine I will move quickly once I make up my mind.

    Sorry to hear it toad. I know you don't want to go this route but gun dog classifieds has had several litters of wirehairs lately. I'm Leary of things like that too. But I see some names I know on there also. On point has pups on there occasionally. Gurley is there. Jeremy S has a really nice litter of shorthair on the ground now. If it's the same Jeremy. There is litter of draahts in newton that I saw on gdc or kansas hunting and fishing cant remember which. I think they were just born or will be shortly.

    Thanks for the tip about the DD breeder in Newton! I have been emailing with them and they seem legit. They won't have pups available until December, but they sound like they should be pretty great dogs. Of course, by then, my French Brittany guy might have pups again, and then what the heck am I going to do...

    To make matters worse, a friend suggested a litter of GSPs that sound pretty good, and are on the ground right now... Too many choices.

    Nothing is official yet, but I am getting the list narrowed down pretty well... Wisely, I avoided going to look at litters of GSP puppies, because it is just too hard to say no to puppies regardless of the breed...

    I'll say this, when you're looking for a dog, the members of this site can be a pretty helpful network. If you let people know what you are looking for, they are pretty good about keeping an ear to the ground for you. I received multiple, very helpful PMs about this thread from members on this site. Most of these guys I know only through the site, and have never met face to face. It's a really good group of people here.
