    I like Dingus McCrae, Warfield Red and Indian Hills Major. A little partial to the Patch as well.

    I guess why don't you just go with Yellow Creek,always can breed in Weir Creek.Those Willie pups if any left should fit the bill

    When people use the “Weir Creek” and “Yellow Creek” and “Dingus”, etc, they are referring to kennels or dogs from the 1980s or before. By 2020, that blood should be so watered down with subsequent crosses on other lines to render the original lines insignificant. Even more recent lines like Gay and Blackcreek and Shorts have probably been changed enough to not use those names further. Generally, after the original kennel owner (like L.M. Watson or Frank Reese or Tom Dornin) is no longer making the breeding decisions, the line ceases to exist. The line then should be called by the new breeder’s kennel name. I saw a pedigree recently that was practically all Boggy Holler but the person was calling them Weir Creeks! Are we stuck in the past with some of these lines?

    I and most of these guys would agree with you, and whatever or whoever wants to name or speak of their dogs is their prerogative. If we are stuck in the past then why are breeders establishing their own blood line, so we are in the future, but we can speak of the past.

    To my knowledge Buzz Bomb only produced one FC, Smith's Buzz Saw but he started a line of four HOF FC's in a row, himself, Buzz Saw, Buzz Line Director, and Coleman's Line Controller. He had producing power somewhere but it didn't show up like a lot of hounds who produce multi FCs. Maybe be on his dam's side. He was used a lot and I can't say I ever saw a bad hound out of him. Again, just an example of how a great one just don't pass it on consistently. Just as we were looking at race horses like Secretariat and Affirmed the other day who were triple crown winners but just didn't pass it down.
