The Prairie Sky A litter was born on Friday, March 4, 2005. Opal gave birth to 11 pups: 7 females and 4 males. The puppies went their new hunting homes in May. They were ready for their first hunting experience by fal.

By March 28, the pups were able to stand up and navigate short distances. They began eating real food a few days before. They not only look more like little dogs now, they also sound like it!

The "Great Escape" took place on the night of they turned 4 weeks old.

She has a dense, wavy, soft coat and is lean with a light but muscular build (about 55 pounds). She was a good retriever both on land and from water. She has an intense, stylish point on wild game. She was a happy, affectionate and cooperative dog both in the field and in the house. Her hips are rated excellent. She received a Prize I (106 pts.) in Natural Ability and 154 pts. in Utility. Both her parents were German imports (see below).

Ben earned 93 points (III) in the Natural Ability test and has sired one previous litter of fine hunting dogs. He died in 2017, at 15.
