Eery year I look forward to going to our Nationals. Hav~ missed one in almost 10 years. Memorable things always secm to happen, this year was no exception. A few vVire friends and I had made prior arrangemcnts to mect a few days early to do some training. Since we were not pennitted on the trial growlds until Monday, the club had set up a training area for us on Beale Air Force Base. Doug Ljungren was there along with Penny Ljwlgren (both from WA) and Dwight Muth and his wife (MN) The grounds at Beale were cm'ed with what they call in Califomia, Star Thistle, a nasty plant so thick that the horses refused to go through the stuff. We finally found a back comer far off the road, where the "cover" was not as thick and \Veproceeded to work the dogs. The dogs went through this stuff better then either people or horses, proving how tough our little dogs Cimbe. One of the first things to strike me about the cOlmtryside is how far you can see. From mOlmtain (they would call it a hill) to mountain everything is flat. You can see forever. While training wc could see these plumes of smoke sun-ounding the Air Force Base. Aloysia Hard told us they were burning rice paddies, apparcntly a very normal thing to do in this area. l\ot somcthing someone from the east is used to. Later in the clay I noticed one of these plumes getting closer to our little camp. Not to worry everyone told me, it's a controlled burn. L1ter, the wind shifted, blanketing us with heavy smoke, quit worrying, it's a controlled bum. Controllcc1my - I I could see names. I seemed to be the only person with any conmlOn sense, and I was getting out of there. /\1 this point tile rest of the gang was laughing at me, but I had just recently watched Califomia bum to the ground on TV and I was not taking any chances. Finally we made our way back towards where we had the vehicles parked. It was tllen that everyone else in our little training crew realized that this easterner was not quite as silly as they thought. The controlled bum, was out of control and heading directly towards us. At tlris point tllere were 5 people, 6 horses, 5 velricles (ranging from cars to motor homes to tnlcks and horse trailers) parked in this field. 3 of the horses had to be ridden back to fue barn and to safety. So off I "'ent, galloping across the field dragging two horses behind me. Aloysia followed in her car to bring me back to get my motorhome and my dogs. I raced into fue barn area, and tIrrew the horses at the first people I found. "Here, take these horses I" I didn't know who fuese poor people were, or did I really care at that moment. (I'hey tumed out to be Wallace & Mary Lou Linge from Nevacla)As I raced over to get into Aloysia's car, I heard a scream belrind me, The folks who had taken the horses had a motorhome witll a horse tTailerhooked to it. In the cab of the motorhome were their 3 Wirehairs. Unfortunately, one of fuem decided it was a good time to jllll1p out of tile window to see what was going on, and knocked fue gear shift out of Park. The motorhome was now rolling backward toward a large tank which looked like a propane tank. (it tumed out to be a water tank) Now, fue decision was, get to the fire or help these people? The fire won! Aloysia and I sped back to the field in time to see Dwight Muth's wife running up the road with a horse in tow. Penny Ljungren followed in her car. I couldn't figure out why Doug and Dwight were still back tllere. As I jumped out of Aloysia's car Doug yelled at me to turn my rig around but don't leave. DvVIGlIT'S BAITERY WAS DEAD! Well, tIris is just peachy I thought. At this point a large tree aproximately 75 yards from us burst into flame. More fuan my palms were sweating. I got Dwights horses out of Iris trailer, and started running fuem up fue road, Pelmy had om back imd she grabbed them from me allowing me to get back and get fue motor home out. At tIlls point the boys had jump started fue truck and they were manuevering to get tumed around. I caught up with Pelmy and took the horses from her and dmg fucm alongsidefue motorhome. Thank goodness tlleYcooperated. As we got to fue road, the fire tmcks came screanring in and they controllcd fue blaze in short order. We looked like a band of gypsy's huffing and puffing and shaking and laughing. There was horse tack everywhere, we had to sort out dogs and belongings. We had just thrown everything we could into what ever vehicle was closest (and working). To say we had a hot time in California, is anlmderstatement! We fuought we had to have tile winning story of tIle Nationals. But we were outdone! Our new GWPCA President Bin Richardson was taking his first plane tlip ever, to Califomia with 2 dogs. An employee of fue airline asked if Bill would CaITYon a small bag instead of checking it. Sure, Bill said. Luckily Gail had accompaIried Bill to fue airport to help get the dogs (and Bill) on the plaIle, and they made their way to the gate. They apprached fue x-ray machine putting all of Iris carry ons on the belt and went through Now remember, Hill has never flown before so this was all new to mm While waiting for his belonging to come furough he noticed fue security officer talking on Iris ",alkic talkie. The next tIring he knew he was in hadcuffs being read his rights Apparently, Bill forgot he had packed Iris blank gun in the little carryon bag. Blank gun or 357 Magnum, the airport security didn't cme. Off he went to sit in the county jail for the next 3 hours. Luckily Gail was able to get the dogs off of the plaIle. The detectives assigned to the case finally accepted Bill's story aIld he was released. Bill and the dogs finally made it to California' Wildfires and handcuffs, bird dogs and old friends. Sounds like tIle GvVP Nationals to me! 1

Report

The current status of the Rescue Fund is as follows; Previous balance $581.40 Donations in 1994 l23..QQ $774.40 Less Rescues ::46222 Current balance $307.18 We would like to provide a very special "Thank You" to several members and GWPCA local clubs who made donations to the GWPCA Rescue fund this past year: Dr. Francis Sakiey (NJ) Donald & Audrey Meinke (Conn) The GWP Club of Southern California in memory of R. Lawson The National Rescue is something that every member and every local club can and should be a part of. We realize that everyone is not able to house a dog who needs shelter until it is placed in a suitable home, but there are many other ways to lend a hand to these "down but not out Wires". Of course money is always needed to feed, vet and advertise. Sometimes a dog needs to be transported from one place to another. If you would like to help out, but don't know how to get involved contact Linda Strothman (508) 2498360.

and last reports is that he is adjusting beautifully. Thanks to Leslie & Irv this dog has a second chance. If anybody has a great rescue story to tell, just let the editor know. We would all love to hear about it. GWPCA membership fees are due January 1, 1995. Individual $20.00, Family $25.00 and Foreign $40.00. Please fill in the form below and mail it directly to Linda. The more dues that are mailed in directly, the more we can save on mailing costs to remind you later. Thanks for your help.

Letters .... To The Editor To The Editor; Last weekend at our local Wire Club's Fall Field Trial I was talking with a number of friends who attended the GWPCA National Events in California in October. After some lengthy discussion which made me wish I had been able to be there, we got on the subject of the National Awards for 1993. I was astounded to leam that the bitch which more than doubled the

To the Editor, I was surprised to see my recent letter to the editor reprinted in the Shorthair News. I'm receiving "Atta-boys" from all over the west coast for a very controversial subject in the GSP world today. Fran has brought up a couple of good points. The rule book says "In a Gun Dog, All Age, Limited Gun Dog, or Limited AllAge stake at a licensed or member trial held by a German Shorthaired Pointer or German Wirehaired Pointer Club, the handler is prohibited from controlling the dog by the collar at any time, and may not touch the dog in such a manner as to restrain or control it" (page 54, section 6H). It does not prohibit praising or petting your dog after a job well done. Also as Fran notes, the abuse of collaring is the norm not the exception. Collaring would have been to my advantage in the 1993 Amateur stake but it's important to look at the whole picture and the future. I have, as a judge, instructed a handler to collar his dog after a situation where the dog was surrounded by nonflying birds. The rapport the individual has with his one or two dogs is his only advantage. All the odler odds are in the favor of the professional trainer. Will anyone else come to play? At least on the west coast we see lots of pointers, setters and Britts at the GSP and GWP trials and some even enter the water test to prove that they can! Ray Calkins

mnner-up's numbers for the Overall Group Competition for 1993 had not been so recognized due to the fact that she was not owned by amember/s of the GWPCA I was not aware that such an ownership requirement existed. From talking to many others since, I was not alone in my ignorance. A couple of nights later I was told that this qualification had been passed by the board in the last few years. Curious for more specifics, I went back to the Wire News issues for the past five years and tried unsuccessfully to find where this had been announced to dle general membership through our newsletter. Naturally, such information may have been circulated through some other means which I have forgotten. I do have several questions related to this matter: 1. When, where, and by whom was this qualification instituted? 2. At what point in time was it to become operative? 3. What method was used to communicate dns change to the general membership of dle GWPCA? Let me say a couple of things before going further. I personally do not care what criteria we use to select our National Award wimlers each year. This presumes that faimess and the welfare of the breed are foremost among the basis. However, I do feel that as a club member in good standing, we should all be on the same page with regard to the criteria being used to make selections. If, in fact, I failed to take note of this information when

To the Editor; At the 1994 GWPCA National Specialty, Ch. Windhavens Cheery Jubilee (Julie) was not given recognition for being the #1 GWP ,Group standing. It is my understanding that this was because the owners in 1993 were not National club members. My question as handler and current owner is when did this stipulation go into effect? Although I am not a National club member, the breeders are, and they were not aware of this. It is my understanding that this stipulation was never made aware to the general membership. Of the 10-15 members I personally know, not one of them was ever aware that awarrds are given to only club members. My other question is if the National club chose not to award Julie as the #1 GWP, why was she consistantly listed as #1 GWP in the Wire News, the National Clubs media of correspondence to the general membership. I personally have no problem with the criteria the National club chooses to use, but maybe the member of the club nlight like to know the rules when they go ino effect. NOT AFTER THE FACT! Jane Alston Meyers

sent to the general membership, I apologize profusely. But, if this is not the case, then I think we owe some apologies and must be big enough to make them. This is the kind of thing true sports people would do. There should be someone on the outgoing board who has been around long enough to answer my questions. Thanks in advance for clearing this up for me. Jerry Clark 157 Route 526 Allentown, NJ 08501

To The Edi tor: I am writing this letter in regards to "Julie" (Ch Windhavens Cheery Jubilee) the GWP bitch my husband and I owned. Julie was the number one G\\'P in 1991 and yet we feel she received little or no recognition for this accomplishment. At the GWP Specialty which was rccently held, we did not receive any awards and no mention was made to the fact that she was indeed number one. Why was it that the ten club members or so that "'e spoke with knew nothing of the requirement change that an owner had to be a GWP club member to receive the award? Vl'ny weren't we ever infOlmed or asked to join the club') We have specials in other breeds and have always been inyited to join the respective clubs. We invest a great deal of funds in each breed we special and we feel we do a lot to promote these breeds.

I

Julie is not the only GvVP we have OI\'11edor own. We arc considering showing another GWP dog special in the near future-but this whole situation really has us upset. Could it he the GWP club is so selective in who joins the club and receives the awards? In my mind 11lunberone is number one and if 1 were a board member of tlus club I IVould be embalTassed to withold a $25.00 trophy from the G\VP who lightly eamed this award due to some new ruling that no one seems to be 3\yare of. Have we done something that the club is angry about') Has Julie not earned her award and recognition') Please don't forget, tIus is a great GWP witll all kinds of avhievements O\'Cl' the last two years. Is it fair to withold from her the award she earned?

Believing that Windhaven' s Cheery Jubilee was ilic II 1 GWP ShOl\' Dog, I asked what had happened. No one knew for sure, but there was a rumor that Julie wasn't given the award because she wasn't O\\ned by a member of ilie GWPCA. When I asked when ilie rule became effective, no one kIle\'\! , hut the mmor was that it had just becn decided iliat weekend. Here again, no one knew for sure who had made the decision or with what authority. I have been a member of tile GWPCA for many years, and nevcr have I heard of any sllch resuiction, and certainly have nevel seen it enacted. 11 seems to me that in the past, tllere have been sC\'cral instances in which the Top Show Dog was not owned by a member of the G\VPCA. But tlle trophy was awmded never-the-less. \Yhen \\as the change made- and by whom') As the co-breeder of Julie along with Jeff and Helen CJeorge( all members of the G\,yPCA) Julie was first registered to Robel1 and Dorothy Furlong. Later tins was amended to include Helen, until Febmary ]992 w'hcn Julie was leased to Richard and Judiili Zaleski. \\llen the t\yO year period ended she was u'anfelTed back to Robert and Dorothy Furlong and Greg and Jane Myers. DUling her stay with Greg and Jane, Julie was the #1 GWP Bitch in 1991 ;lnd 92 According to all recoreLsthat I've seen, she w'as tile #1 Show GWI' in 1993. I hope someone has a reasonable answer as to why tIns dog was denied the recognization she rightfully em-rled. Robert J. Furlong Windhaven Kennels ~lcmber, CTWPCA

COMING EVENTS 1995

Believe me, this is a matter of Plinciplc for if it wasn't I could go out and buy hundreds of trophies for what we have spent promoting this breed. In addition, in my opinion, two of the most avid supporters of ilie GWP breed have been offended. That is Jane and Greg Myers-our handlers. I watched both Jane and Greg pour ilieir hearts into showing Julie and that is truly reflected in her show standing for 1992 and 1993. I know that Greg has been involved in GWP's for years and has done much for the breed in many ways. Yet-to do it all- to haye taken a GW£>bitch to number] and get no recoglution whatsoever- it tins fair?

Del-Val November GWPC 5&6 were Fall the Field datesTrial of the Delaware Valley Fall Field Trial held at the historic English Setter Club in Medford, NJ. Unseasonably warm weather, 78 entries ,the forecast of severe thunderstorms (for Sunday) and the loss of a couple of hours of daylight due to the time change, threatened to make this a weekend of headaches. Trial Secrctary Maurcen Tait was prepared for anything however and we shouldn't have worned. With plenty of help available, the trial finished up with time to spare. It was especially exciting to see so may Wires competing, with many winning and or placing in the event. Congratulations to Maureen& Walt Tait 's CH Schnellberg's Gretta who won the Amateur Limited, the Amateur Gun Dog and received a second in the Open Gun Dog. Now she needs to find and pass a water test to complete the requirements for her Amateur Fe.

To The Edi tor:

Hdieving that Windhaven's Cheery Jubilee was the t11 GWP Sho\\ Dog, [ asked what had happened. No one knew for sure, but there was a rumor that Julie wasn't given the award because she iya<;n'tmined by a meml-JCrof the GWPCA. When I asked when the rule became effective, no one knew, but the mmor was that it hadl , jllst been decided that weekend. Here again, no one knew for sure who had made the decision or with what authority. I have been a member of the GWPCA for many years, and never have I heard of any sllch resuietion, amI certainly have never seen it enacted. It seems to me that in the past, tIlere have been several instmlCes in which the Top Show Dog was not owncd by a mcmhcr of the G\\'PCA. But the trophy was aw,rrded ncver-the-Iess. "'hen was the chmlge made- and by whom') As the co-breeder of Julie along with Jeff and Helen George( I all members of the GWPCA) Julie was first registered to RObel1and I Dorothy Furlong. Later tlus was mnended to include Helen, until Febmary 1992 when Julie was leased to Richard mid Judith Zaleski. \vllen the two yem- peliod ended she was trmtlelTed back to Robert and Dorothy Furlong and Greg mid Jane Myers. DUling her stay \\ith Greg mId Jane, Julie was the #1 GWP I Bitch in 1991 and 92 According to all recorcLsthat I've seen, she was the #] ShO\\ GWl' in 1993 hope someone has a reasonable mlswer as to why tllis dog was denied the reeognizatioll she rightfully earned. Rohert J. Furlong Windhaven Kcnnels ~1cmber, CTWPCA

I am writing this letter in regards to "Julie" (Ch Windhavens Cheery Jubilee) LheGWP bitch my husband and I owned. Julie was the number one G\~VPin 1993 and yet we feel she received little or no recognition for this accomplishment. At the G\VP Specialty which was recently held, we did not receive any awards and no mention was made to the fact that she was indeed number one. Why was it that the tcn club members or so that we spoke with knew nothing of the requirement change that an owner had to be a GWP club member to receive the award? Why weren't we ever informed or asked to join the club') We have specials in other breeds and have always been invited to join the respective clubs. We invest a great deal of funds in each breed we special and we feel we do a lot to promotc these breeds. Julie is 1I0tthe only G\VP we have owned or own. \re arc considering showing another GWP dog special in the near future-but this whole situation really has us upset. Could it he the GWP club is so selective in who joins the club and recei\'Cs the awards? In my mind number one is number one and if! \\'Cre a board member of tIlis club I would be embarrassed to withold

!

a $25.00 trophy from the GW? who lightly earned this a\\ard due to some new mling that no one seems to be aware of. Have wc done sometlling that the club is angry about') Has Julie not earned her award and recognition? Please don't forget, Lhisis a great GWP with all kinds of avhievements o\er the last two years. Is it fair to withold from her the award she earned?

COMING EVENTS 1995

Believe me, this is a matter of principle for if it wasn't I could go out and buy hundreds of trophies for what \ye have spcnt promoting tllls breed. In addition, in my opinion, two of the most avid supporters of the GWP breed have been offended. 'D13.tis Jmle mid Greg Myers-our hmldlers. 1 watched botll .l<me mid Greg pour their hearts into showing Julie mid tl13.tis truly reflected in her show standing for 1992 and 1993. I know that Greg has been invol ved in GWP' s for years mid has done much for the breed in mmlY ways. Yet-to do it a11-to have taken a OW? hitch to number I ,md get no recognition whatsoever- it tIus fair?

When tile presentor (GWPCA president, Marilyn Powell) started to announce the Top Show Dog, she suddenly stopped and switched to the Field Dog winners. Tills took awilc, as there were several tropllies to be given out. '\lhen Illis was linished, the presentor then announced "mid the Top Show Dog A ward goes to Grit" .... and that was it.

Del-Val November GWPC 5&6 were Fallthe Field datesTrial of the Delaware Valley I Fall Field Trial held at the historic English Setter Club in Medford, NJ. Unseasonably warm weather, 78 entries ,the forecast of severe thmlderstorms (for Sunday) and the loss of a couple of hours of daylight due to the time change, threatened to make this a weekend of headaches. Trial Secretary Maureen Tait was prepared for anything however and we shouldn't have worried. With plenty of help available, the trial finished up with time to spare. It was especially exciting to see so may Wires competing, with many winning and or placing in the event. Congratulations to Maureen& Walt Tait 's CH Schnellberg's Gretta who won the Amateur limited, the Amateur Gun Dog and received a second in the Open Gun Dog. Now she needs to find and pass a water test to complete the requirements for her Amateur Fe. Congratulations to Hellbender's Laser Two (Alex) ownerl handler Bill Koeber who went on to win the Open Derby. New to the sport of trialing, Bill and Alex have done extremely well. Wires received 8 placements this weekend, once again proving we are a breed to contend with. Events like this don't just happen, although our club has reached the point where it may seem so to some. Club members Bernee Brawn, Mal Decker, Jerry & Leslie Clark, Bill Koeber, Patti Roherts, Fran Sakiey, Mary Spies and Walt and Maureen Tait all pitched in to make this a wonderful event for "dog people".Our Spring Trial will be held March 4 & 5 at the Assunpink WMA in Clarksburg NJ.

r-======:=::=:=====-=====~~~========~=======--

Immunodeficiency diseases in dogs manifest themselves as an increased susceptibility to infection. This is due to abnormalities in one or more components of the immune system. These can be caused by a primary genetic defect or acquired as a result of another disease process which temporarily or permanently damages the immune system. The congenital immunodeficiencies are usually seen at a young age; the acquired impairment can occur at any age. Recurrent respiratory infections, dermatitis and deep skin infections, chronic diarrhea, stunted growth, adverse reactions to modified live vaccines, and oppomunstic infections (with usually harmless organisms) are commonly associated with ilmnunodeficiencies in dogs. Testing for immunodeficiencies is not simple. Most straight forward is evaluation of the serum concentrations of the common immunoglobulins IgG JgM and IgA.. The published normals are all from adult animals so caution is advised when applying values to puppies. This is a relatively new field in veterinary medicine, we will probably be able to diagnose more cases in the future as index of suspicion and testing capabilities improve. The following is a short list of primary congenital ilmmmodeficiencies known to affect certain breeds of dogs. It is likely that other breeds are also affected but may not have been recognized. Selective IgA deficiency: This is a common entity in humans, predisposing to childhood infections and allergic reactions. Beagles, Shar Peis and German Shepherds have been diagnosed this condition. Most have recurrent upper respiratory infections with Bordetella and more inlIalant allergies than normal dogs. Treatment of the conditions is symptomatic. One 3-year old Shepherd in om clientele with tllls condition has been treated for bronchopneumonia almost quarterly during his first 2 years. Transient Hypogammaglobulinemia ofInfancy: This disorder is self-limiting but the puppy's immune system does not produce sufficient immunoglobulins until 5-7 months of age to protect the dog from respiratory and other bacterial infections. X-linked immunodeficiency. Pups are missing components of the cell mediated and humoal immune systems and rarely survive past infancy. Females are carriers in the x-linked form. Affected males are notably stunted in their growth from 3 weeks on. They usually die between 2 and 4 months of age from systemic bacterial or viral infections. Serum IgA and IgG are low. Bone marrow transplantation has helped humans with tins disease.

Canine Cyclic Neutropenia: This defect was first reported in gray collies but can be caused by a recessive gene in other breeds as well. In the dog, cyclic fluctuation of white blood cells and all cellular blood elements OCCllIevery 8-] 2 days. Severe recurrent bacterial infections involving the respiratory tract or the GI tract are common as are nose-bleeds. Affected individuals usually do not survive beyond 3 years of age. Granulocytopathy Syndrome: Neutrophils are present in unusual numbers in this disorder but appear to function poorly so that affected animals have severe infections of the skin, toes, gums and lymphnodes. The first described in the Irish Setter. Similar neutrophil deficiencies have been reported in groups of related Weimaraners and Dobennans. The genetics are as yet unclear.

SECONDARY ACQUIRED Acquired Immlmodeficiencies are the more common. They may be divided into Immunosuppression as a complication of come other disease or immunosuppression as a complication of chemotherapy or immunosuppressive therapy. Failme to receive colostmm will cause a low 19G level for 2-3 months in a newborn pup making it vulnerable to infections until its own immune system produces enough antibody to protect it. Antibiotic therapy may have to be given for the susceptible period in these animals' lives.

IMMUNOSUPPRESSION DUE TO VIRAL DISEASES: Canine distemper and parvoviruses particularly are know to immunosuppressive. Metabolic disorders: A wasting syndrome had been described in Weimaraners that responded to growth hormone replacement even though the dog had a T-cell immundeficiency. a sinrilar T-cell deficiency has occurred in Bull Terriers but appears to be related to a defect in the absorption and metabolism of zinc. Most dogs died by 7 months of bronchopneumonia. Affected dogs had chronic skin problem especially of the feet and around the eyes. The did not respond to zinc supplementation. Diabetes, hypothyroidism and cushings disease can also lead to .. ImmlillesuppresslOn. To summarize: Immondeficiencies have been reported in dogs though they tend not to be easily recognized. Many breeds have been affected with primary (congenital) immunodeficiencies, usually at a young age. All breeds and ages can exhibit signs of the more common acquired immunodeficiencies. In all cases, recurrent, difficult to treat infectiollS should arouse suspicion that an immunodeficiency exists.

The Secretary reported a major action by the Board since the 1ast Annual Meeting - and the one most enjoyed by the membership - was the appointment of Bernee Brawn Wire-News Editor. She went on to state that the newsletter is the parent club's single largest expense and that the membership could show its appreciation of receiving a fine newsletter on a regular basis by purchasing more advertising.

Linda next reported the balance in the Rescue Fund is down to $307.18. Since the Rescue program is supported by donations, contributions would be welcome and put to good use. (Ed.

Our Thoughts .... judging

the GWPCA Nationals

Ms. Ruth Ann Ricci-Freer-

Regular Classes

I was asked to give a critique and overall impression of the German Wirehaired Pointers that I judged recently in Califomia. First of all, I would like to express that it was certainly an honor to have judged the German Wirehaired Pointer National Specialty in Northcm Califomia on Monday, October f7th. My appreciation to your Parent Club and the GWPC of l\'orthern California for their hospitality. The overall quality of the Breed was quite high with many good dogs. I found that many of the young dogs especially, show tremendous potential. The Specials competition was outSt[U1ding. It was not an easy task coming up with the final winners. There were many dogs and bitches that could have ended up with the final nod. This was in evidence by my awarding seven (7) Awards of Merit in addition to Best of Breed and Best of Opposik Sex.

WINNERS DOGIBEST OF WINNERS LARKSPURS WINDMILL DESTRY (WiIUlcrs Dog & Best ofWilmers) from the 9-12 Puppy elass was a lovely type, sound, in good coat with beautiful smooth shoulders. I understand that he finished his Championship with this win. The Reserve Winncrs Dog - RIPSNORTER BOW STREET RUNNER-was also of nice type and coat, but lacked maturity as should a 6-9 Puppy dog.

WINNERS BITCH

~a condition and the Field Trial Dog - DC/AFC DUNKEES lUSTA TOP FLITE, lH- an outstanding Dual Champion with smooth shoulders and powerful rear drive who was in hard muscular condition. (3 specials Bitches) CH AFTERHOURS PRIVATE NUMBER- an absolutely gorgeous balanced bitch who unfortunately let down at the end. CH Rlf'SNORTER 'S KAIZAN WHETSTONE- a very balanced medium size hitch in good coat. CH TXWYR'S LITTLE PISTOL a very nice young bitch only 14 months old who showed like a trooper. As a Pointing Dog breeder, all of these dogs and bitches were the "take home type". I would be proud to own any and all of these dogs. I found coats in general to be very good, although some were too soft, some too long and some sparse. Mouths were excellcnt; a few exhibits needed better feet and others who were good specimens were fat and in soft, flabby condition. For a field breed, this is INEXCllSABLE!! SOllildness in the GWP has improvcd tremendously in the past 10 years, especially rear movement. Eyes still need improvement in color; too many carry the ycllow eye. A few had poor heads with too much stop giving a foreign expression.

POLA DEL CHISOLA (Winners Bitch) from the Open Class was very balanced, had a harsh coat ;md in extremely hard muscular condition. Her overall size, balance and condition is what caught my eye. Reserve Winners Bitch - LARKSPURS COUNTRY CLASSIC- from Bred-By Ehibitor was a very flashy bitch with much presence. She had a good coat, beautiful head and expression. I personally would have liked to see her a little smaller and shorter coupled.

A HUNTING I SHALL GO!

BEST OF BREED COMPETITION Specials Competition was wondelfull! I So many good dogs to choose from. The Best of Breed bitch - CH WINDHA VEN'S CHEERY lUBILEE- caught my eye illll1lediately. Balanced, medium size, flashy and sound; she was presented to pelfection by co-owner Greg Myers. She had the best coat of any dog examined- hard, flat with an extreme wiry texture. Best of OppositeCH RIPSNORTER'S THUNDERHART a lovely, sound, smooth dog also in excellent coat. Beautiful head and expression-never letting down and shown flawlessly by breeder Helen George. Later I found out that he is the sire of \VD and RWD - certainly throwing his qualities.

Tuesday morning came all too early- getting to the Field Trial Grounds at 6:30 a.m. in the COLD AND DARK. I mounted my steed at 7: 15 a.m. to watch some of your Derby dogs in action. Califomia Field Trial grounds certainly are a lot different than thosc in the East. Without a gaited walking horse and the "up and down hills" terrain, a ccrtain part of my anatomy was taking a beating"! Large rocks sticking out of the ground made difficult footing for the horses, but the young dogs bolted away from the hrcakaway up the hills to show their stamina, style of mnning and bird finding ability. Cover was at a minimum (especially compared to the r1ist) some dogs were better bird finders than others; some covered ground more efficiently. I enjoyed observing the dogs and was told I probably was tile first National Specialty hreed judge to attend and ride at your l\'ational Field Trial. I'm a true belicver in the Dual purposc dog and was happy to see many of the show competitors also at the Hunting Test and Field Trial. Additional travel plans made it impossible to stay and watch all of the dogs, but the GWP appears to be an outstanding field competitor as well. My visit to Califomia was extremely enjoyable and again thank you for tile invitation to judge your wonderful Breed.

SWEEPSTAKES - Judy Cheshire, Glen Cove, NY It was a real pleasure for me to judge the 1994 GWPCA National Sweepstakes. I thorougWy enjoyed having "hands on" experience with so many promising youngsters. Type was pleasing in general. Overall, I found most rears to be adequate, but would have liked to see bener fronts - more shoulder layback in some of the dogs. I was pleased not to see any real light eyes and bites were good, except for one. Temperaments were super! Most of these pups were on their fourth day of shows and yet they were still patient and cooperative. On the whole, coats were good. What I was surprised at was that many of the dogs lacked good muscle tone. Of course, these were young dogs and I'm sure they'll be better conditioned when they come out in earnest. For Best in Sweesptakes, I chose a lovely liver bitch from the 9-12 class (Larkspurs RK\1's Dancer) - she was nicely balanced, front and rear, with a beautiful head and pleasing expression. Very feminine and conect from my point of view and well conditioned. Tile winner of the 12-18 month bitch class was

another head tumer. Very free moving with a great attitude and good coat. It was close between these two very nice bitches. First in the 6-9 month bitch class was a puppy of excellent type. She needed a bit more self confidence and maturity to comptete with the big girls, which I'm sure will come with time. Best of Opposite Sex, from the 12-18 month class, was a balanced, sound dog (J and J West Coast Connection) who looked as if he could do the job he was bred for. A very honest YOlUlgdog. The 9-12 month puppy dog class was the most difficult class of the day for me. Only three entries, but each one very nice. 1 would have liked the wiJU1erof this class in a smaller package. First in the 6-9 month dog class was a really nice puppy with an excellent coat and a wonderful attitude. I'd love to see him all grown up' I love this breed of ours dearly, and I'm happy to see it continuing in a positive direction. Most of all, I'm glad to see it stay one breed -with field, confonnation and obedience competing on common grOlUld.Thank you all for this wonderful expenence.

Futurity Judge ... Mr. Sam K. Topliss If we are to subscribe to the belief (whicb I do) that the most important objective of a National Futurity is to determine the direction the future of the breed is heading and in accordance with tins belief I am happy to report to you that: 1. I found all entrants to be well within tile boundries of the standard. 2. My examination

of individuals disclosed no common

faults.

problems were found. My selection of class, Best of Opposite and Best In Futurity was detennined by a narrow margin, a situation which is rewarding for a judge to fmd and most complimentary to tlle breeders. It is my opinion that the breed as evidenced by this entry is in excellent over all condition and bodes well for the future.

Best In Futurity

3. Individual faults were all of a nUnor nature. It was rewarding to find such good front and rear angulation and balance. Elbows and hocks were conect, neitller being in or out. Movement overall was very good witIl but one exception and this was a very young entrant who had a bit of trouble with his front movement, which I ascribed to his young age and perhaps a bit of handling teclnUque. Coats, which are so strongly emphasized by the standard, ranged from very good to excellent. Heads were excellent as was substance and tempemlent. \Vith but one exception bites were correct and tile exception was not all tIlat bad, but warrants close watching. Eye color was from lighter than I liked to the nice rich dark brown which was predonUnate. No pigment

trial

\\as

graced with a go<x!entry of 11 brave souls ;md their imagil1itive Wires. If you have ever ttied obedience with your Wire you know that a sense of humor is an important training tool. Some of the dogs responded beautifully to their handlers commands, others (in typical G\VP fashion) acted as though they never heard the word Heel before. All in all, they were a pleasure to watch. 1\/lrMichael J. Bavilacqua was tins years judge and he handed the The Loormg 5;it High In Trial ribbon to our first ever OTCH (Obedience Trial Champion) Nordics Viking Brandy MH. Ov'ned, tt-ained and handled by Ray Hennum of Bothell, \VA, Brandy is 110 stranger to tile winners circle, as she took home the Hn ribbon last year as well. With a score of 195 1/2 in the Open "B" class she proved what a class perfonner our breed can be. The Open "A" class was won by Sclmellberg's Jake Bred by Keith Schmidt ,md owned by Susan Owen. Jake is by Gem Vom Egger Bachtel CDX x ErIe HI and received a score of 182 for his efforts. DC Cadenberg Magie V Rogue CD competed in the Open "B" class and received 2nd with a score of 171 1/2. "Magic" was bred, owned and handled by Silke Alberts is sired by DC Cascade Rogue x Cadenberg Filou \' Lutz CDX, TD. She also eamed a passing score in the Graduate Novice class. Hats off to all who entered and congratulations to those of you who qualified.

The administrative functions of mnning a field trial are always dull, but without the many tireless helpers behind the scenes the event would not come off. The 1994 GWPCA National Field Trial was no exception. All and all things seemed very smooth, well planned and leisurely. But, A CWSE observer would have noticed the harried activities of the vital few who made the event appear to be an efficient well oiled machine. Besides the continuous preevent and during trial activities of Silke Alberts, special recognition should be given to the Nor-Cal members Susan Cutter, Chuck and Lynn Bleything, Doris Ehrlich, Mildred Revell, President, Aloysia Hard and Cindy Heiller. A special thanks goes to Bill Neuffer who not only picked up our out of state judge, but also gave him a mini tour of the Sacramento area.

Jahn

S ha r 0 n did the

honours of taking Michael Aldrich back to the Airport sometime prior to the chicken waking. She was Silke's right hand throughout the trial after doing duty as the Hunting Test marshal, bird planter and general bottle washer. Without club member Scotty Azzelino and her Motor Home we would have been without a Headquarters, food preparation facility and general town square. Perhaps her biggest contribution was entertaining the other chief cook and bottle washer, Harold Neasham. Alkthough a Non-Member, Harold provided horses, a generator, lights, loudspeaker and not least of all, his Thursday night culinary services at the Bar B-Que pit. Non-Member Greg Pirak was a constant worker, serving as a marshal, birdplanter coyote chaser and water hauler. Out of slate help was offered freely and accepted frequently. Mike Hemphill, Dwight Muth, John Schoonover, Jim Yates and a Northern Oregon woman known only as "Eleven" were pressed into service as stake marshals and birdpen builders. Randy Berry would have you think he worked at this event, but rather we suspect he was simply having fun on his new 4 wheel toy, without which we would have needed a mule team to haul water and other stuff. We want to thank all the other people not mentioned that helped and supported us in the National Field Trial endeavour. I hope you enjoyed it as much as the crew did.

Villejo, CA 94590 Dear Randy: I thought that you would be pleased to know that Pat Hatler who represented AKC at your nationals this year wrote a report about the excellent manner in whicb the trials were conducted. Pat said that of the five GWPCA events he has covered, this was by far tbe best. Our compliments to you and your committee for doing an excellent job. The one dark spot mentioned wear blaze orange vests or jackets.

by Pat was that the national

open judges

refused

to

I think that in the future the judges should be required to wear blaze orange or be replilced. Perhaps tbe problem could be alleviated if upon inviting the individuals to judge, they were asked if they would or would not wear blaze orange. That eliminates them right upfront. The blaze orange requirement in events where there is live shooting was not arbitrarily enacted by the American Kennel Club but was done so at the request of the last Pointing Breed Advisory Committee which overwhelmingly recommended that a rule be enacted to require all people involved in live shooting wear blaze OTilnge. We don't think that this is a matter Other

for judges to decide.

than that, it was great to receive

such a great report.

Sincerely,

I~C I!~

Brace 5 JimKath's Catalyst O/H Kathleen Yates FC/AFC SGR Witches' Brew O/H Bill Richardson

Jake& Ruby opened the Amateur Championship with good range and mnning style. Jake was found standing at a large fallen oak tree still in full foliage (now golden to camouflage the quail). This tree, though not an objective for the bird planter, was definitely attractive to a large covey of quail throughout the trial. It was a challenge to produce birds out of such tangled cover and unfortunately Jim was unseccessful. Ruby was standing at 42 and Jake honored naturally. Sue flushed the chukar and the gunners missed. Ruby held but Jake broke form the back.

Crniser had a solid gun dog performance with a find but no kill at 34. Brew put down an all agc perfonnance with no bird contact.

Brace 2 Marsu's Superduper Tooper OIH Dan Gaska FC Sure Sht's Mister Chips O/H Mel Lee Trooper was standing at 11 minutes and Chip honored. All was in order but without a kill both dogs were sent on. Trooper completed his retrieving requirement with a finished performance at 35 and had a third fInd just before time at 43. Chips made the most of good scenting conditions in the late afternoon. After the back at 11 he had a fInd on quail just beyond the hun at the dike at 22 and a kill at 30 with all in order. Moving along the west side of the course he had a nonproductive at 32 and a stop to flush at 35 and 37.

Brace 3 DCI AFC Dunkees Justa Top Flite, JH O/H Bernee Brawn Flintlocks Dakota O/H Jim Yates The Amateur Championship continued on Wednesday monling at 7:30 am. Topper and Bernee had traveled many miles from Pemlsylvania. Although he found no hedgerows, Topper adapted well to the hills and trees of northern California. He was standing at 11 and 45 but unfortunately no game was produced. Dakota put down a good gtm dog performance. He was found standing to the front at 35. The bird (already dead) needed no gunner.

Brace 4 Pol a Del Chisola O/H Aloysia Hard Cadenberg Smokin' Magic O/H Dwight Muth Pola was a stylish medium gtll1dog. She pointed at 26 but Aloysia was unable to produce birds. She stopped to flush at 28 and finished with a consistent race. Magic was the youngest dog to participate in the '94 Championship stakes. The find was stylish hyut he was impatient and didn't wait to be sent! Ahh youth! I

Brace 7 DCI AFC Cascade Ike MIl om Ray Calkins FC/AFC Sure Shot Cruise O/H Mel Lee Both dogs began their brace with wide open forward casts. At 10 Ike & Cruisc wcre pointing. Judges declared a divided find and Mc1 worked the chukar and a blank was fired. Both dogs were moved on. Ike took the high road along the fence at the left and Cruise took the draw and trees on the right. Both dogs hit the fence line at the turn above the draw and punched forward to the west side of the course. Ike was found standing at the dead oak at 30. In tme midwest fashion, Judge Aldrich was off his horse in a position to see the work. A single quail was produced with all in order. Ike was sent on. Both dogs again disappeared to the front and were found standing about 10 yards apart facing opposite directions. A chukar was flushed for Ike but it flew back over the gallery and no shot was possible. Both were sent on and completed their 45 minutes strongly and to the front.

Brace 8 Sure Shot's Golly Miss Molly O/H Penny Ljungren Jed's Silent Storm A'Brewin JH om Karen Nelson Molly & Storm were consistent gun dogs and both were standing about 40 yards apart at 12 minutes. Karen found lots of feathers but no bird and Penny flushed a covey of quail but the gunner missed. Storm had a quail find at 40 with excellent style but also no kill.

Glory's raIlge shortened as she worked the cover back along the west side. She pointed at 30 with good style but Sue was unable to produce a bird. Glory was reloacted through the hea\'y coyer and unfortunately the chukar popped.

Judges; Jack Halford & Chuck Sherer 45 Minutes - Retrieve on course

Brace 1 Afterhours Sweet Maggie May JH H: Bob Wilson Flintlock's Dakota 0: Kathleen & Jim Yates; H: Mike Hemphill Maggie pointed at 6 minutes with no kill and was released to point quail again a minute later. Gunners were on target but the retrieve eliminated Maggie from consideration. Her race was a medium gun dog. Dakota opened the championship with a nice forward shooting dog race. At 43 minutes he was found standing with no need for a glllll1er, the chukar was already in his mouth.

watched with good style and manners. The handler did an excellent job of kindly healing Cruise through a difficult situation. He thoroughly worked the remainder of the cover to the dike. Cruise pointed at a deadfall just beyond the east side of the course and finished with a point at Quail Central at 40 minutes. Multiple quail were flushed, both gllnners fired in different directions and Cmise was lillable to mark the fall of the bird. Me! was successful in directing his dog to the downed quail and the retrieve to hand was in order.

Brace 4 St Croix's Rawhide Ruby Owner/Handler Sue Mueller FC/AFC SGR Witches' Brew Owner/Handler Bill Richardson Ruby had a find at 10 minutes but took an extra step. Birds flushed and Sue picked her up. Brew started with a nice shooting dog performance. At 30 she was pointing under the trees above the dike but nothing was produced. Sent on, she again pointed at 36 but the handler was unable to produce game.

Brace 5 Ali Del Chisola Owner/Handler Aloysia Hard JimKath's Catalyst Owner/Handler Kathleen Yates Ali gave Aloysia a nice gun dog race and was fOlllld standing at the dead oak tree at 12 minutes. He was relocated and pointed with excellent style while handler flushed a quail. The retrieve was in order ant the team moved on. He continued to hunt with a nice mrming style. It is worth noting the Ali and Cmiser both had medical problems as young dogs and each had had a lung removed, so between them they had a full set!! The competitive performance of these two dogs is a testament to the physical toughness of the GWP. Cmiser put together a solid shooting dog performance along the west side and moved up the hill strongly to attack the east side and was rewarded with a find at 37 minutes at Quail Central. Unfortunately, Cmiser took an extra hop with the kill prior to being sent for the retrieve.

Brace 2 DC AFC Cascade Ike, MH Owner/Handler Ray Calkins Marsu's Morning Starr Owner/Handler Jim Rice Ike's large opening move took him into the trees where he was found standing by scout Eleven at 5 minutes. The kill and retrieve were all in order. His second find was on quail at 10 minutes. The covey was flushed and as Ike was being heeled off, he locked up again. Ray flushed a single and once again all was in order. He moved quickly to the front and was found buried in the dead oak tree on point. Quail were flushed and Ike again moved to the front. He worked the trees along the fence line above the dike then returned to work forward through the bottom along the hillside. He was found standing at 40 minutes on a covey of qlk'ul in an area that will be referred to again in these notes as "Quail Central". All in order - a very solid performance. Starr was found standing under an oak tree to be further described in these notes as the "pear" tree. Starr had a stop to flush at 6 and continued with a nice glm dog performance.

Brace 3 DC/AFC Dunkees Justa Top Flite, JH O/HBernee Brawn FC/AFC Sure Shot Cruise Owner Handler Mel Lee Topper was found standing at 4 at the pear tree. Bernee relocated him and was unable to produce game (other than the bird hanging in the bag in the tree) A qlk'ill popped as the handler was remounting, but the temptation was too great and Topper pursued. Cmise opened with a shooting dog move through the trees. He was standing at the dead oak tree. Mel flushed a huge covey of qlk'ill that flushed in all directions. The glmner was unable to focus and Cmise

Brace 6 Cadenberg Smokin' Magic Owner/Handler Dwight Muth Sure Shot's Golly Miss Molly Owner/Handler Penny Ljungren Magic smoked around the course and right through the Q Central covey at 30 minutes! Magic is a stylish fast moving young Wirehair that I'm certain we will see again as he matures. Molly hunted the objectives well. She combined a shooting dog race with excellent coverage of the major objectives. She had a find on chukar at 40. The gunner missed and Molly moved slightly with the shot but was controlled. As she was cast off a second chukar flushed and the stop to flush was a little rough. like her bracemate, Molly is a pleasing dog to watch run and her day will come.

Allure's Futurity win was keeping with a family tradition. Overbaron's Country Hustler, her sire, was the 1993 Futurity "winner". FC/APCSGRWitches Brew, her dam, won her Futurity. All three won or placed in their respective National Derby's. The grand parents are NAFC/FC/AFC Cascade Steamer and NFC/NAFC/FC/ AFC Marie Laveau von Stueben and Smokin' jo V. Rahnhaus. whose careers speak for themselves. Tail up and head held high, Allure was not to be ignored when we first previewed the litter. Home she came to join Hustler, Cruiser, Dakota and Eli. On the surface she is a easy going, charismatic, cooperative, easy to live with Wirehair, but underneath is a bottomless heart and a quiet strength of will. Traits that have manifested themselves many times in her short career. As soon as she could manage the snow, Allure started following Hustler and Cruiser over the fields and hills behind the house and field trial grounds. She naturally took the correct side of the wind, scented birds and had a natural point. The fall of 1993 she was second in the National Puppy. Severallittermates also placed in the puppy and derby. Allure continued her training with Mike Hemphill starting on the deserts of Arizonia in january 1994. She consistently placed this year following in Hustler's footsteps who was the 1993 national top puppy/derby Wirehair. Her cooperative nature made breaking her out this summer very pleasurable. The weekend prior to the Nationals, at 20 months of age, she placed 3rd in a GSP4 point Amateur Gun Dog stake. In addition to her Futurity win, she placed 4th in the derby. This past weekend at the Fort Detroit trial she finished her derby career a win. Keeping with the family tradition are several littermates. "T" 1st National Derby, "Zach" 3rd National Futurity, Dealer and Indy have have been placing in the field and on the bench. Allure did not do this alone. A big "Thank You" to the dedicated members of this winning team. First john and Ruth Schoonover and Marie herself who produced both Brew and Hustler and their friendship. Secondly to Billand Gail Richardson who had the foresight to breed Brew to our young, unknown, unproven Hustler. Thirdly to Mike Hemphill who has taken Cruiser, Hustler and Allure and spent innumerable hours developing these dogs into Championship prospects. Thank you for all the long-distance coaching. To all the owners of littermates who have promoted them. As we are writing this article, we are anxiously awaiting the next addition to the family. Hustler was bred to Marie!! Allure just keeps getting better and better. We are lookingforward to many happy years. We enjoyed California. See everyone next year in Ionia, Michigan at the 1995 Nationals.

Judges: Torben Hansen /'vlike Aldrich The 1994 Derby Classic got underway hright and earl y on Tuesday morning. The moming started rather chilly with everyone in the gallery in sweatshirts and jackets. But by 9 am. the chillliftee! and the jackets and s,'.:eatshirts were piled by the breakaway. The weather man swore it was only 78 degrees but the dry heat felt more like mid the 80's to most of us. By noon, we were glad the club had the forethought to place water barrels on the course for the dogs. Judges Torben Hansen of Califomia and Ylikc Aldrich of Michigan watched as 23 young Wires did their thing. \'lany of the dogs entered were still of puppy age and their youth showed in immature races. We saw some pretty points and some wild chase scenes. All in all it looks as though our breed has some tremendously talented young dogs ,vho will make their mark on the hreed in the future. The 30 minute course followed the natural layout of the grounds. We made our way over the first hill to a stand of Oaks then tumed left through some more Oaks. A few of the dogs found birds in or arOlmd these trees. Around the halhvay point the course veered to the left, through a draw and up and over ,mother hill finishing back at the breakaway. The rolling terrain made it difficult to see the bigger going derbies on a point. A few however were seen under birds and at the finish of the stake two dogs were called back for birdwork. The wilmer of the 1994 Derby Classic was OKK Bewitching Spellbinder a 22 month old bitch owned and handled by John Schoonover. She ran an all-age race covering the course with power. As the handlers and judges topped a hill she was seen taking out a bird and therefore was called back for a point. The 2nd place dog Sure Shots Jus~ Wild Thang a 14 months old bitch owned ane! handled by Bemee Brawn ran a very intelligent race for such a young dog. "Lola" was found on point at a deadfall with no bird being produced. Her bracemate pointed in the same area producing a bird. Lola was also called back hy the judges. The third palce dog was Backwoods Hexible Flyer a 22 month old dog owned and handled by Greg Dixon. "Archie" ran a pretty course with style and pointed his bird nicely. Tlus dog has plenty of go in him and once he gets his directions straight hc will be a dog to contend with. Fourth in the Derby classic was JimKaths Allure a 22 month old bitch owned and handled by Jim Yates. "Allure" showed maturity on her birds with a broke find. She covered the course with purpose and handled easily.

1994 Hunting 1edt Senior Since 1990, the GWPCA has included a Hunting Test as part of our National Events. \Vhat started as a couple of dogs in each test category has grown into a full days testing. A total of 31 dogs participated in the Hunting Test. Judges Duff Lundy of California and PemIY Ljungren of \Vashington spent the entire day watching Wires from allover the country do their thing. Congratulations to James Tucker whose dog "GIll" completed his Senior title on this day. "Gun" was handled by Ed Tucker. Boilijudges were asked to comment on ilie pelfonnances of both tlle dogs and their handlers. Pelmy's comments follow: I tllought that overall tlle dogs did a very creditable job. The course was not an easy one for tlle handlers. After going up a slight incline at the breakaway, the course veITcd to the left and straight up hill. I will givc tllcm credit, they all got around.

The entry was small and there were a few problems at this level The one dog to qualify did a very nice job. Senior Qualifiers (6 entered) Jeds Spitze Geshutz 13: J Tucker By DC Cascade Rogue MH x Ch Jeds SGR Silent Panda 0: James Tucker H: Ed Tucker

Junior In the Junior test I felt that many of tlle handlers had not done tllcir homework beforehand. Many did not understand ilie performance requirements, and were not aware of what we (tllc judges) would be looking for in their dogs hunting abilities. It appeared that many of the dogs did not have a clue as to why they were out in the field. These handlers need to get tlleir dogs out in the field so tlley can get used to mnning in cover and learn where to nm and to hunt. In order to qualify you must get your dogs on a bird a time or two so you can assess his pointing ability. The dogs who received a passing score did a very nice job and 1hope to see their handlers go on to the next level with them.
