Erin came back from Russia, (after picking up his 3rd title) where he spent a year with one of the top kennels in the world, Gently Born. While there, Erin was selectively shown by Anna Vlasova, and used in her breeding program and other breeders in Europe. While these pups are young, some are doing some nice winning. We are proud of what Anna did with him. Erin is available for stud services at Keystone to selective females. Please contact us for details.
Champion Gloris R Wiseguy Keystone (Vinney) is an import from the famous Gloris kennel in Russia. He came to us at 10 weeks of age, in 2000. Vinney has been an exceptional boy and has demanded my attention every opportunity he could. He is a large boy, just over 28 inches and weighs over 105 pounds. He has produced very well with every thing he has bred and has over 10 champions offspring, of which one (NA AM CH Hatten's As You Wish - Westley) is strongly challenging for the #1 GS for 2005 in breed and all-breed points. He may end up 2nd, but what a great year he and Jim Hatten Jr. had! Two others to watch here at Keystone are Strider and Hanna. Co-owners have Ruby, Annie, Riley and Vixin that are being shown currently. I predict Vinney has much more to offer in his future and will influence many breeders programs.

2005 was a difficult year for us personally, which included a move, so Strider was given time to mature. We look forward to some fun showing him starting in 2006.
