(Above) Colton's Grand-Sire: DC AFC Trekker V Grunbaum VCD3 UDX MH MX (the most titled GSP to date in the USA!)
Trekker hunted, pointed, backed and retrieved at four months of age. With some schooling, he became a Conformation Champion at 14 months and a Field Champion at 2 years of age. He is one of the breed's youngest Dual Champions. Not just a title hound, he was nationally ranked in Field and Show in the same year. Being named a finalist in the National Amateur Championship Field Trial and winning a Best In Specialty Show were "just" part of the competition. Amateur Field Champion and Master Hunter titles were gathered along the way in record time. A journey in Obedience competition yielded the very difficult Utility Dog Excellent title. Four first places in tough Obedience competition and a national ranking are testimony to his intelligence. Tracking was second nature, and the Tracking Dog title was garnered on the first try.
History will record Trekker as not "only" the most AKC titled GSP, but one that excelled in all the areas in which he competed, and he did it without losing his boldness and independence. Trekker has redefined the term "Versatile" as it applies to German Shorthaired Pointers.
As Trekker passes into "Senior" status, his get are now moving to center stage. His puppies have accumulated 23 Championships in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand. There are dozens of hunting titled get and many have field trial points. Just as important, Trekker's pups are happy, biddable, dedicated natural hunters and companions which are cherished by their owners.
Trekker still greets the start of each day with his own ceremony of jumping, spinning and tail wagging. And no one gets to the coffee pot until he gets his full measure of petting and play. He instills everybody he knows with his own brand of happiness and enthusiasm.

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house,
not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
Shorthairs by the fireplace in trance with blank stare,
must be visions of Woodcock in the air.
