1) NITECH CH 'PR' Tree Rizin' Two World's Collide (Clyde)- Clyde is owned by Aubrey &
Ann Butler of Wisconsin.
CLYDE is Razor's 2ND NITECH!! WAY TO GO AUBREY & CLYDE!!! We are excited to
watch Aubrey & Clyde as they work towards their GRNITECH title.
UPDATE 2/13/05: CLYDE MAKES CHAMPION!! I haven't gotten all of the details yet-
but what I do know is: In his first Bench Show since Aubrey & Ann have had Clyde- Clyde takes Best In Show Male
over a LOT of dogs. He had another redbone to beat for breed & in the final round there was a Black & Tan, Bluetick,
English, Plott & Walker plus Clyde represented. I don't know "how many" of the other breeds were represented but
obviously- Clyde & Aubrey REALLY earned this win!!! Aubrey is brand new to showing the dogs but he & Ann have
come down a few times now & I've given them pointers with Clyde to help them (and Clyde) get in the groove. Obviously,
they have worked hard with him since then & it shows!! CONGRATS Aubrey & Ann!!!
UPDATE 12/27/04: Aubrey & Ann came down for a visit & brought Clyde along. (Thanks
for the Wisconsin Cheese!!) We had a great visit & Aubrey reports that Clyde has taken 62 coon this season but has treed
over 100- some were multi-coon in one tree where Aubrey only took 1 coon. We got a chance to see how Clyde is growing
out & I have to say that PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE! This dog use to have a thicker coat- it's gone now. He has
turned into a nice darker shade of red- a shade or two darker than his momma. He is an awesome blend of Razor &
Trippy and we can see sooo much likeness between him & our dogs. He has nice tight feet, awesome angle and ear set
and a very nice bite. Of course these are his "confirmation" features- I think all of the reports in these updates also
show that he's a coondog deluxe. This is a dog that we would love to have in our own kennel- he is AWESOME. Everything
that is true to Razor & Trippy.
UPDATE 12/5/04: CLYDE'S COON NUMBERS SO FAR THIS SEASON: 55 coon killed- about
UPDATE 11/14/04: Aubrey just called to say that he has killed 42 single coon
with Clyde BY HIMSELF since their kill season opened!! Now folks- THIS is what happens when you
PUT THE DOG IN THE TIMBER!!! There is NO DOUBT in our minds that Aubrey will have Clyde NITECH next
spring. These two are a LETHAL combination. Aubrey called to find out when he can get his next Razor pup-- at
THIS RATE- we'll be GIVING you that pup for making CLYDE NITECH!! Keep up the AWESOME WORK!!
Aubrey bought Clyde at Autumn Oaks 2004. Though Clyde had been introduced to a
couple of scent drags & had seen a caged coon, he had NOT been taken to the woods at night. In just 3 weeks, Aubrey
said that Clyde has went from "a dog that didn't even know what a cornfield was" to a dog that is "doing it all!!" Clyde
has the priviledge of being owned by a good pup trainer that is hunting him with really nice solid coon dogs. As a result,
Clyde has been running his OWN coon since that 3rd week of Aubrey owning him. He will fight a coon, kill a coon
& do it in style. Aubrey said that when we described Clyde's mother, Trippy's- exceptional tracking ability that
we were also describing CLYDE!! Aubrey called to let Rob know how incredibly pleased he is with Clyde. We have
to say we are as equally pleased with Aubrey!! This was a VERY VERY good match for a Razor pup! KEEP IT UP AUBREY!!
UPDATE 10/13/04: Here's what they have to say "He is doing very, very well overall.
He is striking, tracking, and treeing coon, and he has even split treed a couple of times now. He is getting to be a
very quick strike dog, and a very fast tracker."
UPDATE 10/18/04: Clyde is ON FIRE!!!! Opening weekend (2 nights) Clyde tracked,
treed, and killed 5 coon BY HIMSELF!!!!!! We are super pleased with his progress. Aubrey's goal was to have Clyde tracking
and treeing by himself by season end, and he has done it by season opening!!
2) GRCH 'PR' Tree Rizin' Razor's Renegade (Gator) is owned by Dustin Bales of Ohio.
Gator has finished his Grand Champion title on the bench & is making his debut in the
nitehunts. He will be campaigned to his nite champion title in 2006.
3) CH 'PR' Tree Rizin' Triple Threat- owned by Ben Hollinger of OH.
UPDATE 10/16/05: Ben just purchased Storm. He called today excited about his hunt
with her this weekend. She ran & treed- had the meat and did it in STYLE! Storm is a HARD HARD treedog-- tree
hugging- belly rubbing tree dog!! GO STORM!
4) CH 'PR' Rokn W Razors Texas Wild Card (Deuce) owned by Dwayne
& Lynn Wilson of Texas.
Update 10/16/05: Deuce has 2 wins now towards his GRCH and has 2 really nice litters on the
ground. Lynn reports that he puts his gorgeous head on his babies as well as his awesome outgoing personality!
5) CH 'PR' Noss' So Mtn Sebastian (Seb)
Sebastian is now back at Tree Rizin'. We look forward to putting him in the timber. We will
update on Seb in a few days.
6) 'PR' Tree Rizin' Razors Triple Crown owned by Steve Campbell, Ohio
Ditto is extremely special to me. She was my pick female in the litter and I have raised
her for the first 16 mths old her life. I will keep tabs on her forever and I will be showing her out to her GRCH but
Rob needed a breather and the only way to do that was to lessen the load of young dogs that he has to train- particularly
since we had a poor training season this year due to distemper coming through. Steve & his buddies are hard hunters.
They will do right by Ditto and Steve will put her into competition hunts when she is ready- something that Rob may not ever
have been able to offer due to just TOO MANY young dogs so we feel fortunate to have made the match of Ditto and Steve.
We believe they will be a team to be reckoned with. & for you show folks around here, don't think you are getting
off the hook- I will still be out with Ditto in the show ring in 2005! ;)
