Pedigree of expected litter, week of April 15th. Ryman type English setters.

There are a couple of ways to evaluate this Ryman type four generation (30 dogs) "blended" pedigree.

At first review, there are 7 show/belton champions and 5 field champions or 12 champions or 40% of the dogs are champions and not just those "types of bloodlines" in 4 generations.

But there are special dogs in the pedigree..

On the field side in the 4th generation are two champions, Reroy and Agnes. Reroy won 5 championships. Agnes won 8 woodcock and grouse championships. Agnes has won more grouse woodcock championships than ANY ENGLISH SETTER IN HISTORY. (15 championships by just these two dogs.) Long Gone George won 2 championships as did his son, Elvis. If we were counting field championships, there are at least 19 championships won, grouse and woodcock, all on wild birds.

Again, if we are counting field championships we can count three more..on the "conformation" blend there are 3 Dual champions (only 12 in 120 years) So there are more three field championships (AKC)

So the field side totals 8 field champions. (Dual Ch. Select Gold is twice on the pedigree) With the 7th show champions, that is a total blend of 15 champions or 50% of the dogs in 4 generations are champions. A solid "blend" of both types that George Ryman advocated to produce: "The Gentleman's Shooting Dog."

Over the 49 years I have bred this type of setter, this is close to the top blend of champions I have produced. I don't see any other "Ryman type kennels" equaling or exceeding the genetic blend in this 4 generation pedigree in 50 years! This has to be a positive genetics for this type of Setters.

I am hoping to find folks who are interested in this type of dog.

If you know of someone interested in continuing with the Ryman type English setters, I would appreciate you letting them know about this litter. It should save them 10-15 years in putting together this type of quality genetics.

The sire of this litter: Inferno (Blaze) is also a show champion but from UKC not AKC. If I counted his championship, that is (7 out of 14 dogs) in 3 generations or 50% champions.

So about the week of April 15th we will see what is produced.Like Forrest Gump said about life and a box of chocolates: You never know what you are going to get. Like opening gifts at Christmas.

This photo is Boondocks Inferno (Blaze) the sire of the Ryman type English setter litter due the week of April 15th. The mother is Karen's Annie Girl a daughter of the grand national grouse champion: Ch. Terhaar's Elvis. The breeding of the litter will have one grand sire a show/belton champion and the other grand sire a Grand National grouse champion. In their 4 generation pedigree, 40 percent of the dogs are either show or field CHAMPIONS. The "blend" needed, according to George Ryman, to produce: "The Gentleman's Shooting Dog". The classic looks of a belton, show dog and the hunting desire of the field dogs. Compare these genetics with ANY Ryman type of English setter kennel in America. $500-$600 at 8 weeks, Boondocks Kennels. Three Rivers, Michigan. Andy Johnson, GOD speed

    I have bought several dogs off this lineage in the past and have had nothing but great luck! If you want a great working cover dog this is the litter you will die for!
