Moe Makes Invitational Final

From the account of the reporter: Oh, so close. Jeanette Tracy and Grand Heritage Motion, owned by Bruce Cooper, gave a super accounting at the US Shooting Dog Invitational Championship this weekend. Two extraordinary first days running, with limb finds both days, scouted by Bill Kerr, made Jeanette and Moe a possible favorite going in to the finals. If Moe had not gone in to his third and final 1 1/2 day performance with pulled pads on both front feet the final results might have been different. This big front running, bird finding machine of an English setter, combined with the obvious rapport he has with his skilled handler is one exciting sight to behold. What a great performance by handler and dog...and scout. All are winners!!



We are truly proud of Moe and Jeanette. Trend Setters Indeed!

US Shooting Dog Invitational Conway, Arkansas

Moe was invited to this premier event as one of the 12 top shooting dogs in the country. Two consecutive days of one hour braces each day with two finalist to a call back on the third day. The head-to-head final is 1 1/2 hours long. No Setter has ever won this event. Jeanette is the first woman handler ever invited.

Moe gets Honorable Mention in Eastern Championship

The judges carried Moe's wide stylish race, 4 finds and a long-distance back until the last brace at the Eastern Open Shooting Dog Championship in the Dick Cross Wildlife Management Area, Boydton, VA concluding on 3/8/13.  Ultimately, it was reported that a minor mark, when a quail flushed over Moe's head, settled the judges decision for R-u Champion.

Many thanks to Jeanette and Dillion. They have Moe poised to bid consideration by the judges whenever he draws a bird holding course.

Revolution in US Quail Shooting Dog Futurity

Grand Heritage Revolution (Trevor), out of Moe and owned by RB Powel, was noted as contesting the top 10 in the initial series of the US Quail Shooting Dog Futurity.

Revolution under New Ownership


Grand Heritage Revolution during a workout at Ladywood Farm

Trevor is a remarkable young dog that shows the promise of his daddy - Moe. We wish Trevor, R B Powell, his new owner, and Jeanette Tracy all the best.


Moe is Honorable Mention in Keystone Ch.

Grand Heritage Motion is recognized with Honorable Mention behind the named Ch and R/u Ch in the Keystone Championship held by the Indiantown Gap bird Dog Club in Petersburg, PA.

I had an opportunity to ride Moe's brace in this championship - what a thrill it was. He was braced with Calico's Catch & Release, a multiple Ch and retuning event Ch. They had several divided and individual finds, and backs  throughout, only to have Moe finish strong, ahead and have a nail bitting find and relocation at the end the hour. Jeanette Tracy and Dillion Shaffer did a great job throughout the brace to show Moe doin' his thing. After a few hours in the saddle, my admiration & appreciation for the job Jeanette and Dillion do was greatly enhanced.
