    Production:
    Progeny/first and second generation - 5 dogs with total 15 hour wins
    5 dogs with total 5 Am. Fld. Ch, 8 RU Am. Fld. Ch; additional 4 FC, 2 AFC, 1 DC, 2 CH

    Chug sired only two litters. His progeny was limited due to his contraction of a Mycoplasma organism that left him sterile. After many courses of antibiotics, vitamins and trips to the vet, it was concluded that the damage was permanent. However, though few, his progeny are leaving their mark and the grand-progeny as well. Great dogs are not an accident; they are produced by a knowledgeable breeder and an outstanding pedigree. Chug and his progeny are following in the footprints of those before him.

    Progeny:
    5x AF Ch/4x RU AF Ch/GFC/FC Touch of Bourbon Little Chug, 10 hour wins, 49 Field Placements
    RU AF Ch/FC McChesneys I Got My Mojo Working, 2 hour wins, 30 Field Placements
    RU AF Ch/FC/AFC Lost Creek’s A Shot of Bourbon, 1 hour win, 30 Field Placements
    CH Ammo's the Show Never Ends, field pointed in open & amateur stakes
    Sharptail’s Time Well Wasted, 9 juvenile field placements
    Grand-progeny:
    RU AF Ch A Trace of Bourbon with Diamonds, 1 hour win
    Touch of Bourbon Little Chloe, Juvenile field placements
    RU AF Ch/DC/AFC Turning Points Landslide, 1 hour win
    Kruse’s -Nine Blaze’s Last Dance, 2017 Gun Dog Futurity Winner
