Joker - Hall of Fame SMCNAVC Hunting Hills' Joker
Owners: Pam & Mario Robinson

Whelped 3-28-08

VC Joker is a very smart and cooperative dog learning things quickly. He often looks at us like, "I already did that once - why do I have to do it again?" when training.

His nickname is "Showtime" performing best when he's in front of a crowd loving the attention. Joker's very obedient, loving everyone. He is often used for pet therapy to visit children at schools and our friends borrow him to hunt birds in the field. Joker has been an easy dog to train and he is our first versatile champion - perfect for us in many ways.

GunnerHunting Hills' Gunnar
Owners: Pam & Mario Robinson

Whelped 5-10-06

Gunnar loves to work. He can train or hunt all day so he's been the perfect dog for us to have in the field and in the home.

Gunnar has "trained" us and the other dogs we own and he is also frequently used for hunting and pet therapy training. Gunnar is very loyal and he is always by Pams side. He will do whatever it takes to find a bird on land or in the water rarely coming back without a duck when sent on a search. Gunnar is very intelligent and obedient often knowing more than we do about what needs to be done.

Jerry vom BuchenbergZip
Owners: Ken Hamele & Tom McDonald

Although Zip is the only hunting dog I have ever owned, I can say with absolute confidence that Zip is my "dog of a lifetime". Tom McDonald imported Zip in December 2005 and he grew from a puppy to the type of dog I used to dream about owning. There is no doubt that he is my dream dog. Zip is very well behaved, loyal, and smart.

Zip has a great nose, skilled at marking downed birds, retrieves birds to hand, and has outstanding stamina. If the birds are holding, I can let him range & he will find birds, point them & wait for the hunter(s) to arrive. He will then wait for the birds to be flushed/shot so he may retrieve them. If the birds are not holding he will quarter out in front of the hunters at 10 - 15 yards. As the birds wild flush, you can still get shots at game well within shotgun range. He is trained to make blind retrieves across open water as well as follow a scent track. In addition, he has retrieved ducks, geese, dove, chukars, grouse, prairie chicken, quail and pheasant. He has helped out at two local controlled shooting areas since the fall of 2007, retrieving 2,000+ birds shot over him each year.

At home, Zip is wonderful addition to my family. Zip is a joy to have around the house because he is a friendly and well-mannered companion. He is excellent with our grandchildren who like to tug at his coat and pull on his tail. I hope this info makes you realize why Zip is "my dog of a lifetime"!! I am proud to take him hunting any place - any time - anywhere.

KeeganVC Crabtree's Chopper Davidson (Keegan)
Owners: Jeff Lorenzini

 

 

I have been blessed to own my first hunting dog that has the ultimate desire to hunt and to please his owner. Keegan has been an ambassador for the Small Munsterlander breed by participating at an optimal level in NAVHDA, UKC Retriever Trials, UKC Conformation, and local hunt tests. He loves to compete and excels at whatever is placed before him. After earning his NAVHDA Versatile Champion title, he competed in the UKC Retriever trials, and just recently achieved the Hunter Retriever (HR) title; being the first Small Munsterlander in the SMCNA to achieve this water title. Keegan also has the opportunity to provide an upland and water retrieving demonstration at a National Hunting and Fishing Day event for approximately 550 kids, and their parents each year. I allow a few interested kids to handle Keegan; he loves the attention, and performs from them as he would for me. He truly is a special dog who promotes the versatile Small Munsterlander breed.

HemlockHunting Hills' Hemlock
Owners: Kris and Jeff Hill

Born: 01/17/2007
His dam is VC Looses Jaika and his sire is VC Cody vom Apfelbaumbach. His son, VC Hunting Hills' Joker, passed the Invitational with a maximum score on 09-18-2010.

As a puppy he was happy, calm, and even tempered puppy that was a bold quick learner. Hemi has his mothers and fathers staunch intense points, has a very keen nose, and is a reliable retriever as you can tell by his maximum scores in his NA and UT tests.

It is always a joy hunting and guiding with Hemi. People who are with us hunting are amazed with his abilities on and off the hunting field!

Thank you for the honor of submitting Hemi for this recognition.

BoudoinVC Bayside Run's Boudoin
Owners: Mark Bulvanoski

Bou as a young upstart full of himself and beaming with his usual bravado, ready to bust a thousand grouse before he even thought, it might be better to point them. With the years came temperance and finally trust, and then we learned how to listen and read each other actions. Then finally I listened to his nose when it said relax Mark, grouse are where you find them and then I realized I was exactly where I am, ~in front of a grouse~ with my boy VC Bou.
