When my husband wanted to buy a hunting dog and I insisted that I would only accept a show quality pup, little did I know I would end up being the proud owner of a top breeding kennel. Lane's Valentine Gambler, "Val" was one of the results of my first breeding and was my first show dog - she was OFA Excellent weighed about 50 pounds and was 23" tall. If I had not been such a novice she would have completed her championship. She did have nine points to her credit including a 2 point Best of Breed. I put a CD on her brother Lane's Thrasher Boy. Val was the dam of CH Quinn Creek Ricochet, CH Lazy Hearts Haagen Dazs and Quinn Creek Summer Breeze - who only needed one major to finish when she had an untimely end, and several superior hunting dogs.
Val gave my Lazy Hearts Kennel a strong beginning. She lives on today in her grandchildren. The quality, beauty, and longevity of my dogs are of the highest priority and I show the dogs I keep for breeding stock with few exceptions. All dogs are OFA rated before being bred and usually have completed their bench championships.
CH Lazy Hearts Placer C'ntry Rip is ranked on the top producers of all time list with 27 champions to date. His pups are trainable, smart, birdy and gorgeous.
I breed for dogs that range in close for the foot hunter, not the type you need to be on horseback to keep up with. This same quality makes for athletic companions that make wonderful family dogs that want to curl up in your lap or in front of the fire when the family relaxes.
Lazy Hearts dogs turn heads from the show ring to the
field with their beauty. People that make their dogs part
of their lives are the owners I look for in placing my pups.
A dog relegated to a chain or kennel in the back yard for
most of its life will never get a chance to develop its full
Active families or singles will enjoy the
companionship of a Lazy Hearts German Shorthaired Pointer and Weimaraner.
