Twister was my keeper from Taryn's litter by DC Almaden's River of Shadows.

We started slow with Twister, but after her first summer camp she came on strong in the puppy stakes during Fall 2011. She placed third in a big stake and then won two more in a row. Twister competed in Derby stakes along with her brother Tequila Scorcher ("Lincoln", owned by Bernie Crain). Lincoln grew up to win the prestigious US Open Brittany Championship in 2016! Their two sisters, Ch. FireStarter's Tequila Torrent and Ch. Tequila Tempest both completed their show titles with ease; they can be seen on our Champions page.

After getting a season of hunting with our friend Katherine Thompson in Idaho, Twister matured into a fine bird dog with impressive style on point. She has become a terrific mother, her first litter being born in January 2014 by DC/AFC Bandit's Cinderella Man. Most of these pups are in active hunting homes and have made their owners very happy both at home and in the field. Ch. Bandit's Mr Twister was the star of this litter, earning his Puppy and Derby points in short order and his first adult placement in Amateur All Age when he was still 14 months old! Buck then earned his show championship at 17 months old with a Best of Breed win and finished by going Winners Dog at a specialty show. He didn't miss a beat, returning to field trials in August and earning more placements in Open and Amateur All Age competition. Sadly, Buck was tragically killed in an accident just after he turned 2 years old. We know he had so much more to show the world.

Twister found her place with us as a dam and occasional "puppy teacher" in the field during our summers in Montana. After her first litter we opted for roan sires. She has two litters sired by CH Hoochie Coochie Man and one by DC Breton's Sam I Am. All of her pups are treasured companions with wonderful temperaments and great hunting ability, and some have gotten a little competition under their belt as well. Her last litter was born 7/31/17 by DC/AFC Beaver's Straight Arrow. After rasing these three last boys, Twister retired to the "good life" with my mother and other family in California.
