Ch Egertonvilla Tribute To Murman, FDJ DOB: 11/29/2009
Murray came to us from Irene Balla in Ontario. He was purchased as our potential new stud dog and I must say, he is doing a really good job for us.
Named as a tribute to a good friend of ours who passed away, a lover of dogs, hunting, fishing and all things outdoors, we think Murman would have been very proud of his namesake.
Murray began his Field Dog Jr title at 6 months old in June, 2010. With only a brief introduction to birds he qualified once and failed once. He had to wait a full year before we travelled to Ontario again to complete it in two runs. He finished his conformation championship in July, 2010, at 8 1/2 months old.
Murray has great intensity/focus which he passes on to his pups. His daughter, Tequila, showing some of his drive and desire in the field already has earned 2 legs toward her FDJ at just 6 months of age.
Photos above show Murray earning a Best Puppy in Group and finishing his Championship with a Best of Breed win. Below, left is Murray's debut as a Special, middle is field training in Ontario and right is his favorite thing to do - catch the Frisbee!
