Our first brittany was a beautiful orange and white female named Ann.
She came to live with us in 1989. Even though Ann was only 5 months
old, before I left for the Gulf. She was pointing and retrieving with no
training. During the time I was gone something bad happened. Our
back yard was broken into. Some thing's were stolen. And apparently
Ann got in the way and was whipped with a broom or something that
look like a gun. For when I returned and took her hunting she would
still point. But when she got sight of the gun she ran away. Even
though we loved Ann I wanted a dog I could hunt. I tried to help Ann
over her shyness but I couldn't. She was given a great home with a
family in Washington DC. After that we had many other dog's. But
none seemed to be right for our family. Then about 4 years ago we
brought another brittany. She became part of our family. A good
hunting partner, her name was Callie. With Callie our kennel has
started to grow. We currently have 4 brittany's and each one of them
is a big part of our family. They have all been easy to train and they
all hunt with us. A day hunting with our dog's is one of the best thing's
I can think of.
Even though there are many good breeds of dog's we think that the
brittany is the best. A great family companion and great with kids/
So I guess you could say Ann started our obsession with brittanys. All
those years ago. It continues to become even stronger. The more
brittanys we own the more we love them.
