Ref: AKC Trials. The first pic is HRCH-CH The Hurricane WDQ MH Qualified All-Age. Now retired; Abs was as high as #7 in USA by points. Usually ran 6-8. The second pic is son number 1 Hurricane's Express Courier Qualified All Age, Curry was the number one male last year with a total of 13 1/2 points and number 2 overall, 1/2 point behind his cousin. He was run on a limited basis; only about 8-9 times. Curry's full sister was sitting number 1, 2 weeks ago after a third in Louisiana. Curry will probably be run in 8-10 trials this year; the ones in Ohio. 1-2 Pa. 2-3 Mich. 1-2 in NY and possibly the ACC national in Oct in NJ. He needs to pickup 3 points for his AFC and to qualify for the National Amateur. Curry is available for stud to qualified bitches. Curry is owned by John Ackerman of Russell. We are always looking for a few people to train with.
KP, I'm back; for a new grand daughter. An yes, ref the bottom pic, Curry is a great looking and working Brn dog; BUT .. He will never ever be as great as his mother. So hope the pups are loaded with Abs. P
