Present and past . . .
Rachel was our first and foundation bitch from Holly and Phil Wachuta of Tartana Kennel in Stetsonville, WI. Rachel was owner handled by Connie to her AKC Bench Championship and by Chris to her AKC Master Hunter title.
She was a medium size dog (about 54 lbs) and was Chris’ gun dog in the fall pursuing Ruffed Grouse, Pheasant, and Woodcock 30 + days each fall in Northern Wisconsin. Rachel’s early end came as the result of ingesting a rope style chew toy. Upon sharing her story with others we have since learned that this has happened all too often. Please learn from our experience.
