My daughter Taylor then 5 years of age looks down into the whelping box and says, “Daddy I think we should keep this one pointing to the dark Fox Red one week old pup.” In reply, I said to her, “Well why that one honey.” “Because we don’t have one that color Daddy!”
So yes, we kept a Fox Red male from this litter which we named “Scooter”. At 8 months of age he looks exactly like his Grandpa. The famous AFC FC Calumet’s Super Sonic “Soupy” who earned his MH & QAA titles at 18 months of age.
Well watch out Grandpa because this apple in “Black Ice’s Super Sonic Scooter” didn’t fall far from the tree. Scooter was an amazing talent from the start. He was pointing birds before he turned 7 weeks of age. I gun broke this pup at 11 weeks of age. Before he turned 3 months old he had pointed and retrieved to hand well over 100 shot quail.
Scooter passed his first HRC Hunt Test at the young age of just 4 months. That’s right! Scooter passed his first 4 Hunt Tests in a row and received his first Hunt Test Title “SHR” at just 5 months of age. Scooter also passed his CP APLA Hunt Test at this same young age before moving on to his AKC Junior Hunt Tests. Scooter passed 4 AKC Junior Hunt Test in as many weekends and yes he earned his AKC JH Test Title before he turned 7 months of age.
Scooter passed 9 Hunt Tests in the spring of 2009 across the H.R.C, A.P.L.A. & A.K.C. all at the very young age of just 6 months or younger!!!
Scooter’s young success continued in 2009 … as he earned the “Advanced Pointing Retriever” APLA title while being perfectly steady to wing & shot. Although being steady to wing & shot is not required for the “APR” title, Scooter at just 10 months of age received tons of praise as he amazed the spectators and judges alike.
Then in an attempt to build on Scooter’s early success I made a very hard decision to send Scooter South for the winter so he could continue his progress on water blinds. After all, the winters in Texas are usually warmer than those in the Midwest.
So Scooter moved to Texas and entered the training program of Rusty Haglund and Bobbie Purser of Trigger Time Kennels & Web Foot Kennels respectively.
By the time Scooter turned 12 months of age he had earned the right to be on Bobbie’s trailer which is only filled with dogs that can do AKC Master Hunter work. “It’s hard to believe that a 12 month old pup can run mark for mark, blind for blind with AKC MH titled dogs. But Scooter can, and does every day. This combination of Reno’s Black Ice and Calumet’s Wild Card is the real deal. In fact, I am so impressed I bought a second pup from this pairing in February of 2010”. Rusty Haglund – Pro Trainer www.triggertimekennels.com.
Scooter under Bobbie’s caring hand earns his first AKC Senior Hunt pass at the young age of 15 months. Scooter was only one of 8 dogs of 55 that past this test in Iola, TX and was by far the youngest dog in the entire field. But being the youngest dog at a hunt test was nothing new for Scooter.
March of 2010 turned out to be a great month for Scooter as he went on and passed 3 AKC SH tests. Scooter went 4 for 4 under Bobbie as he earned his AKC SH title in April of 2010.
Less than 5 weeks later Scooter being the youngest dog in a field of 52 dogs in Lavergene, TN passes his first AKC MH Test. Scooter was one of just 15 dogs out of 52 to pass this test.
Three weeks later in Virginia, MN Scooter was just 1 of 12 dogs to pass this very challenging MH test and as usual was the youngest dog to pass.
Scooters success continued that summer and he earned the coveted AKC Master Hunt title at the young age of 21 months of age. He was just one of two dogs that day to run the entire test without a handle.
Special thanks to Bobbie Purser for all his hard work and personal dedication to me and this great pup of ours in Scooter. Thanks Bobbie!
In August Scooter moved back to K and L Kennels under the APLA specialist in Mike Latteau. Warming up for the fall APLA Test season Mike & Scooter earn another AKC Master Hunt test pass in Centerville, MO. on 9/6/10.
Mike of K&L Kennels takes Scooter to New York and earns his APLA MPR title. Then a couple of weeks later Mike takes Scooter to Kansas and earns Scooter’s “GMPR” APLA title. THANK YOU Mike…. what a great effort.
By the time Scooter was 22 months of age he passed 23 hunt tests across the AKC, HRC, & APLA. For the most part Scooter was not just the youngest dog at most of his AKC tests, but continuously was the youngest dog to pass each of his AKC tests. Professional trainers across the country realize that an MH title is much harder to achieve today than it was 5 or 10 years ago. A MH title at any age is noteworthy. A MH title at barley 21 months of age given the 2010 MH standard is quite an accomplishment. Thanks again Bobby Purser and Rusty Haglund for all you have done for Scooter and I.
Here is Scooter and all his awards at just 22 months old.
If you are interested in watching Scooter, please visit the “Events” page and maybe he will soon be at a test near you.
Scooter earned his Field Trial QAA in the summer of 2011 at just two years of age. Scooter is the youngest dog to our knowledge to have earned his GMPR, MPR, MH & QAA. Not only was he the youngest on record but he accomplish all these 12 full months sooner than any dog on record.
