Harriett des deux Pierres Bleues
DJazz De La Plume Picarde X Dana Duex Pierres Bleues
Harriett is a very personable dog who focuses on her handler and the game with intensity. She has an exceptional nose and extraordinary hunting instincts. She drives hard and attacks the cover with intent. Harriett is rated C1 excellent for her conformation and also received reserve Best Female other color at the CEB-US National Conformation Show in MN 2013. Harriett was imported from France and has many exceptional dogs in her lineage including several European cup winners. Where as most dogs I have owned love to hunt, Harriett loves to hunt and to serve her handler with equal enthusiasm. It is a very unique experience and based on owners who have gotten one of her offspring it is a positive trait that they have also observed. As mentioned earlier she was sired by DJazz de la Plume Picarde who is the 2015 Champion of the Race in France. Her grandfathers include Oscar du Pont de Cauhet and Sacha de Saint Lubin both being Elite A recommended dogs. Her grandmother Ullane du Grand Capricorne is an Elite B recommended dog. Other Elite A dogs in her pedigree include Like du Pont de Cauhet, Indy de Saint Lubin, and Iska de Saint Lubin. In the United States Harriett has earned the right to make her ancestors proud earning the UKC Grand Champion of the Field title in May 2015. Harriett has a wild brace win in Quincy, FL under judge Sandy Gunn; another wild brace in Quincy, FL under judge Anne Johnson; a solo wild win in Denton, MT under judge Butch Nelson, another solo win in Denton, MT under judge Reynald Lefebvre; a liberated brace win in Bloomfield, IA under judge Larry Ellison and a liberated solo win in Bismarck ND under judge Butch Nelson. Harriett earned first place at the 2016 CEB-US National wild solo trial under the honorable judge Larry Ellison.
Harriett had the honor of being on the cover of the Dec 2015 CEB-US magazine for earning her Grand Champion Title at the same time her father made the cover of the March 2016 CEB France magazine for being Champion of the Race in France. The true measure of a hunting do can be measured through the traits observed in field trial evaluation on wild and liberated gamebirds. Her ancestors have shown it in Europe and she has shown it in the United States.
