I had not planned a third litter for Taryn, but in the summer of 2011, she decided otherwise. We didn't even know the breeding took place and when we finally realized she was pregnant, figured we would have to DNA the puppies to find out who her secret lover had been! Three puppies were born the day before Taryn turned 9, and I named them Corvette, Tattoo, and Fling -- Mom's "midlife crisis" puppies!

Our best guess on the sire since he was closest in proximity was Ed's dog Nitro Express, and that was confirmed by DNA profiling. Nitro was an extremely talented juvenile who always ran big and to the front, and he pointed with style. Nitro was Runner-Up at the 2006 Victoire Nationale Derby Championship, but an unpredictable incident later occurred during a training session caused an issue with Nitro that Ed decided he did not have time to work on, since he was just turning pro and needed to concentrate on his client dogs. Nitro went to another trainer who did fix the issue, but unfortunately after being consistently worked on birds in a small area for several months, Nitro never quite ran the same again. I would have preferred Taryn choose a titled dog to sire her last litter, but knowing her, I figured she was going to show me she knew more about producing good puppies than I do -- and sure enough, she turned out three very nice puppies from the breeding I never wanted! Corvette, brother Ch. Triple Shot of Tequila (puppy & derby pointed), and sister, One Too Many Tequilas (derby pointed).

Corvette had multiple Puppy and Derby placements including a win of her first Derby stake with friend Richard Beaver handling. She now lives in Minnesota with our good friend (and her new co-owner) Dawn Droel, who piloted Corvette to her show title with two specialty major wins! Since completing that title, Dawn & Corvette went on to win two Best In Specialty Shows in Minnesota and Iowa, and complete Corvette's Junior Hunter title in 4 straight attempts. They later went on to earn some Gun Dog stake placements and Corvette's Master Hunter title. Corvette produced three nice litters by GCH Sovereign's Chasing Legends. From these litters came Ch. Sovereign's Legendary Ride, JH (derby pointed), Ch. Sovereign's Legendary Mustang, Ch. Sovereign's CU Later Cooper JH, and Ch. Sovereign's Legendary Speed. Her final litter by CH Ridona-Kobrae Radio Flyer CD RE JH produced CH Sovereign's Fast And Furious JH. We were pleased to have Corvette's daughter Sally for her last litter and from her breeding to DC/AFC Bandit's Cinderella Man we have our up and comer, Mustang Sally's Grand Finale. "Shelby" and some of her littermates will debut in competition in 2020.
