Py was the 2nd puppy in Panda's third litter. Out of 9 puppies, 8 of them were girls, so we had a lot to choose from -- but Py stood out from the first with her brains, personality and looks. She loves people but isn't excessively needy; is very driven to retrieve and cooperates well with the program, and learns like the wind. She is also cuddly and adorable!

She was supposed to start testing at the senior level in early spring 2020; this was delayed because of the pandemic. We took her out to one test in October and she passed her first senior leg, then finished up her Senior Hunter title in 4 tests in a row in April and May 2021. She went on immediately into Master tests, and passed 5 in a row from May to her title on August 1. She passed 10 AKC high-level hunt tests in a row, which is quite an achievement. In her first Master test, one pro standing nearby said, "You are taking her to the Master National, right?" and I had to explain that she didn't qualify for this year's MN since this was her very first Master test. We are so proud of her!

She got standing ovations from the gallery and compliments from the judges on a number of her series runs, for her style, marking ability, and her precision blinds. She had her first litter in September 2022, see info below. We hope to breed her again in fall/winter 2023.

Py's Titles

  • Master Hunter: Zoey had five passes from May through August 2021. She passed every test she entered!

  • Senior Hunter: Py skipped Junior and went straight in to Senior, so she needed five passes to title. We got off to a late start with her because of the pandemic, but she completed her title with 5 straight passes beginning in October 2020 to early May 2021,at just over 3 years.
