Carmona's Pepper Too
Pepper, Kim's Boy
Pepper came to us after a long drive to Houston Texas. Him and a few of his daughter. Pepper was a super strong dog. A real Alpha male. Kim quickly fell in love with him, and he became her favorite boy. Peppers favorite spot was somewhere close to her.
Pepper Lives On.
Pepper lives on in our girl Bonnie, him being her grandfather. Bonnie has given us many wonderful puppies that have grown into very nice versatile hunting dogs with a great Temperament. His breeding is similar to our Dolly, Lady, and Fancy. His grandfather Wildrose's Bullet is also Dolly's father and Lady and Fancy's grandfather.
Great Hunting Dog
Pepper was not a hunting dog, he was remarkable in many ways. He had a great nose, and a very nice point. He was absolutely fearless on any furred animal. He would kill a cat or a fox in a blink of an eye. He would fight a pig, or badger. If a quail flushed he would chase it barking like he was after a fox. He was not very good in the water, and his temperament was lacking. He also could be mean to other dogs.
Pepper's Pedigree, and his Grandfather's Bullet's as well.
Pepper's pedigree consists mostly of Field Trial dogs. He is bigger and stronger than many field trial dogs, and as tuff as nails. He has Dixieland Rusty in his pedigree 5 times in five generations. Many feel Rusty is the best of the field trial sires. Pepper's pedigree is very similar to our Dolly, Fancy, and Lady. Wildrose's Bullet being the common denominator.
Charlie Rose from Wildrose Kennel once hold me that Rincon Slick Runner, or Bullet was the best hunting dog that he had ever owned. He claimed that he had the best long range nose ever. Bullet was such a good hunting dog, and had great range, that Charlie resided to see if he could make him a Field Trial Champion, and at something like 7 years old. Bullet did become a Field Trial Champion and a great influence on our breeding program.
