"Johnny" was bred by Pat DeBree (Petersfield) and Nancy Cavallo (Bertschire). Pat gave me the choice of three dogs. They went on to become CH Petersfield Gallant Jacob, CH Petersfield Jim Dandy and "Johnny". Obviously, I went home with "Johnny"!
"Johnny" was a once in a lifetime dog. He was the last of a litter of 13. A silly 7 1/2 month old puppy who would change my life forever. No doubt he would have been a Hall of Fame dog in somebody else's hands. He had an incredible "nose" and hunted for the 7 seasons he lived in Wisconsin. He achieved his CD at the age of 6 1/2 years never seeing a training class except for the backyard!
"Johnny" passed his versitily onto his offspring which did well in all areas including one who achieved Hall of Fame status. He will forever be remembered for his unbounding enthusiasm coupled with his his beautiful movement. He consistantly passed on his movement to his kids. All current Eden dogs trace back to him.
