Rory & Babies With this breeding, we were looking to preserve the beautiful type we have in both Comet and Aurora. Our goal in breeding in general is to produce beautiful dogs that are truly fit for the show ring or the bird field. With Comet and Aurora, the pedigrees are extraordinary, with each bringing forward pieced of the past that we admired. We hoped in this union to bring good old type and sound health to our current dogs, and hopefully find a magic combination of honoring the past while moving forward into our own lines. Both Comet and Aurora embody many of the traits by pedigree, genetics and conformation that we want to continue on. READ MORE

Aurora, bred by our friend Heather Brennan at Nuthatch German Shorthaired Pointers in Ontario, CN, descends from a tightly line bred maternal lineage that included one of my all-time favorite GSPs, Sage (Ch. Malhaven's Sage Grouse), who is the great-great-grandmother of this litter of puppies and has been behind some of the most beautiful and prestigious dogs in the history of the breed. Sage was a beautiful, moderate, typie, no nonsense and honest bitch that in combination with the right stud dogs produced some of the best the breed has ever known. Sage influenced lines including Robincrest, Ehrsenen, Nuthatch, and many others known for soundness, type and beauty in both the show ring and field. And, although she came along years later, Sage was the granddam of our very first GSP Champion, Callie (Ch. Lieder's Spirit of Friendship), and while we were showing her we heard many times how much like Sage as well as her sire, Spirit (Ch. Robincrest Silver Spirit JH) she was. So, in Aurora, we were able to recapture a piece of pedigree that meant a great deal to us, but was lost from our program when we could not breed Callie, and Aurora brought back that back to us.

EdenStar With thanks to Sherry Thrall of Hedgehog Hill Shorthairs, who told us about Aurora's litter sired by her stunning solid liver dog Jammer (Ch. HHH Jam on the Brakes) out of Nuthatch's Truly, Madly, Deeply we took a trek to meet Heather Brennan at Nuthatch and see the litter. And that's how we brought Aurora into our home and our lives. It was her pedigree first and her incredible spirit next that captivated us and convinced us. Aurora gave us a way back to the old lines, style and type that we feared we had lost when Callie was spayed.

Comet's pedigree offered some commonalities and some differences, but also loaned itself to bringing forward the older style and type that we fell in love with in the breed. His sire Webber (Ch. Mariah's Music of the Night JH) was a compact, beautifully moving dog that was nothing but clean in all aspects. He was neither a flashy nor overdone dog, but had the sweetest temperament and tons of honest style. We had the good fortune of knowing him well during our early years in the breed when we spent many, many hours with Mary Lou and Reggie Tobias at Lieder German Shorthaired Pointers, learning, laughing, and sharing our passion for the breed. And Webber was the out of another great pairing. He was one of the beautiful offspring of Logan (BISS Ch. Windabrae's Dire Straights JH) and Ayla (Ch. Mariah's Sparkles Like Diamonds JH), each of whom were highly respected examples of the breed and who made their mark with wins and acknowledgements in some of the largest competitions in the EdenStar breed. Both moderate dogs, they also both had style and were examples of nice "packages" of German Shorthaired Pointers that looked like they were ready to do their work and find the birds, while being able to demonstrate the regal and intelligent nature of the breed.  

<-- Comet's dam, Kate, bred by Bob and Beth Ritchie of Robaron German Shorthaired Pointers, was probablythe most perfect German Shorthaired Pointer bitch imaginable. She was stylish and typie, moderate and correctly angled, and intense about all things of interest to a german shorthair. we'd be hard pressed to find a bitch of more beauty, hunting ability, or pure type, other than perhaps the lovely Sage already mentioned above. Kate was not actively shown, but somehow photos of her in the field found their way into magazines and ads, and we were blessed by the opportunity to have her incredible heritage behind our Comet. Kate was also the dam of our beloved Callie, and having had the misfortune of her not being able to be used in our program, the blessing of Comet for that part of his pedigree goes without saying. Kate's heritage and pedigree was a prestigious one! She was the daughter of a very well known dog, Surge, BIS BISS CH. Fieldfine's Back For More JH AOM, ROM , a dog that anyone with an eye would recognize for his type, movement and soundness. And to make it even sweeter, Surge was himself descended out of some of the finest dogs that have existed in the history ofthe breed, including the famous Am/Can Ch. Fieldfine's Count Rambard ROMXX.  

Comet's pedigree and Aurora's pedigree had some commonalities that also touched upon the greats of days gone by. Both go back to some of the best known Riverside dogs, such as Riverside's Country Legend, and both include Hillhaven and Snowcreek lines. In fact, if I tried to list all the related lines and prestigious dogs that have come out of those lines, it would be too many to list. But, as a sampling, we've mentioned quite a few of them here.  

In bringing together Comet and Aurora through this breeding, it seemed we could potentially recapture some of the old style and type that many are reaching for, without having to go very far to find it. We hope for more of the wonderful type, conformation, birdiness and temperaments that came before them and exists within them. How could we go wrong? Comet is a loveable dream dog, and Aurora is a beautiful blessing. We think that when you bring such things together, it can only be good for the offspring, and ultimately for the breed!  

If you can appreciate the type and style of German Shorthaired Pointer we've described, the lines from which these lovely puppies come, you might make a great home for one of these special puppies! If you'd like to add one of these beauties to your family, please fill out our puppy application.  

We hope to hear from you soon!
