 Duchess of Adena - "Duchess"  DECEASED

Duchess was our most experienced hunter when she came to HHLS in August of 2005. She had been a guide dog with over 250 birds shot over her and was an expert in the field by the time she had her first pups, "Litter A". She had an uncanny natural instinct for working a field, along fence lines and into the wind. Even the most inexperienced hunter couldn't miss with Duchess along because she knew exactly what she was doing. She had the sweetest gentle personality, so now her pups are not only amazing bird hunters, but have also been used as therapy dogs working with disabled children and the elderly.  FDSB / DNA / OFA / CERF Clear

 Hickory's Advie Bristol - "Bristol"  RETIRED

Bristol was our "star" hunter, named in the TOP 5 coming out of Pea Ridge Llewellin Kennels professional training. Whelped in January 2005, the daughter of Advie Tuck and a great-granddaughter of Advie High Beam from Scotland, she exudes the traditional "Advie" look. She was over-the-top enthusiastic when the blaze orange clothing would come out of the closet and never calmed down until she reached the field and ran at gazelle speed for 10 minutes. She was extremely "birdy", enthusiastic and full of energy, fast in the field, and is a natural at honoring other dog's points, and readily retrieved birds to hand. A true hunting machine!

Daisy is also a grand daughter of the famous "Hank" from the TV show "Hunting with Hank". She was born here at Hickory Hollow on January 18th, 2008 and is a "Litter D" sister to HOPE, the daughter of Duchess of Adena sired by Sillman's Hank Boy.

 Sir James of Galloway - "Jimmy Jam" RETIRED

Jimmy is the nephew of our Duchess of Adena, her littermate brother Mickey is Jimmy's sire and the family resemblance is uncanny. Jimmy originally came to us in a "rescue" type situation, but once we learned his pedigree he joined the Hickory Hollow family. Jimmy is a beautiful tri-colored male with the ability to throw tri-color and tri-chestnut pups in every litter. He has amazing instincts and is naturally birdy with a very stylish point! He has a soft and gentle personality and is a friend to all whom he greets with a big hug. FDSB / DNA / OFA EXCELLENT / CERF Clear

 Hickory's Dash O'Splash - "Splash" DECEASED

Our first stud and mascot, Splash was absolutely one of a kind! His soft and gentle personality made everyone who met him fall instantly in love. He was a real character (sometimes even a goofball) and had a way about him that was unmatched by many! He produced many good hunters as well as a few therapy dogs that have worked with physically challenged children and the elderly.

Tuck is an extremely experienced field dog and has had hundreds of birds shot over him in all types of terrain. He is very versatile and has proven himself out west in the Sage flats hunting sage grouse, on the western prairies hunting grouse and Hungarian partridge, wheat and CRP for pheasant and timberlands for ruffed grouse and woodcock. He is a natural at honoring and hunts side by side with his daughter Bristol making quite the team.

 Sillman's Hank Boy  - "Hank" DECEASED

Hank was a first generation son of the famous "Hank" from the TV Show "Hunting with Hank" and we were very fortunate to be able to know him and even have the opportunity to hunt grouse with him on occasion. Although he was not owned by Hickory Hollow, he was the sire of a few of our early litters (Litters "C", "D" and "G"). Hank was a Chestnut Belton, a stunning image of his famous father and performed superiorly in the field as well.   FDSB / DNA / PENN HIP
