Topic: Tree Rizin' Changes/Wins
2011 has proven to bring many changes for Tree Rizin'. First of all, just one day after my last blog, we lost the HUB of our kennel. GRNITECH GRCH AKC CCH NITECH 'PR' Key's Outlaw Razor Red DNA-P died in his sleep on Feb 4, 2011. He lived a great wonderful long life. He was 13 years and 8 1/2 mths old. The impact that Razor has left on our kennel, our lives, and our hearts will stay with us forever! RIP Razor!
The loss of Razor inevitably has brought changes to our kennel. Fortunately, I see some beautiful bright things happening that have us excited for the future. First of all, we are happy to bring into our Tree Rizin' family, Chris Condon. Chris is as much a part of Tree Rizin' and our future as Rob and I and our commitment to Chris and his hounds is equal to the commitment that he has given us.
With this merger, Tree Rizin' has our new stud dog, GRNITECH GRCH 'PR' Tree Rizin' Razor Sharp Spike DNA-P. Spike is a Razor son out of NITECH Butternut Shady Lady (Razor's Niece). Spike will head up Tree Rizin' for most live breedings at Tree Rizin' and he and his sire, Razor (by way of frozen semen) will continue the Tree Rizin' tradition. We are SUPER excited to have Spike in our kennel. He has taken over his daddy's kennel and we feel that someday, he may offer the breed the same TOP QUALITY offspring as his dad.
In show news.... Wrath & Angel won big last weekend at BBCHA Bluetick Days. Wrath beat 15 other open males to take Best Male of Show and then Angel won a class of 11 Champion females. Wrath is just 5 pts from Champion now with all of his wins at State and National Level events. It's going to be a great year for these two young dogs!
Several Razor pups have added wins this month including: Tess (who finished to GRNITECH), Spike (who finished to GRNITECH), Abby (who picked up another 2nd place win), and Bullet (who finished to NITECH). It won't be long before Razor takes over the #1 spot on the Reproducers List. There is no more "what if" but rather "when" at this point.
For the next few months, you will see Chris & Rob working several Razor pups in the hunts.... there are 4 in the works: Dolly, Sebastian, Ransom, and Abe. Watch as the list of NITECH's grows!
Kat will continue in the ring with Wrath, Angel, and some cameo appearances with Gossip and will add some of the young blood later in the year.
That's it for now. Keep 'Em in the woods & on the bench!
