Matotoland Kennel New Generation GSP's Dixie, Dagger and Cleo - HPR GSP Hunting dogs

Training out at Glen Devine, we needed to end the day in good spirit after losing Dollar earlier in the day. We learn to accept things. I learnt again today that these dogs just want to hunt... no matter what. This is what we live for!
Dollar my boy you made a difference in my and others lives. The German Shorthair breed in South Africa has gained a hunting drive, nose and endurance from you. Memories and stories will be shared by those that knew you at many a braai over drinks. A happy time after a days' wingshooting. HPR GSP'S

R.I.P - Wildrose There Goes My Last Dollar

Thank you Dollar for a amazing 5 years!


Now that I have had some time to fully realize what you meant in my life and what you did for our dogs, Dollar my boy, I am trying to put into words my feelings as best I can. You taught me patience and to wait for it to happen rather than trying to make it happen. I sit here with a lump in my throat trying to describe the unconditional love you had for hunting and getting out there, no matter what the conditions or circumstances were. You showed me how to live life to the fullest….to never, ever give up no matter what is said about you, and above all - give others a chance to prove themselves - to let them work out for themselves that you cannot teach a dog to hunt but should rather develop the drive….. drive that you could not contain because you had so much, and by the time you had it worked out your time with me was up! Thank you for making me a better trainer and teaching me to work smarter, and to look for the finer, smaller things that make a difference. And above all, thank you for the great memories and the stories we will always tell whenever we have sun-downers next to our trailer or have a braai after a days hunting. You never failed to rise to the occasion and always made sure you did something VERY special that gave me goose bumps, and which made for an everlasting memory. We could hunt anywhere in South Africa and you would always have great finds, and even retrieve the odd carp in a mud pool if I shot at it! The way you blew people away when we arrived will always stay with me. To comments like “he is chasing something", the answer would be 'NO, he just runs like that!' You added speed, endurance, nose and personality to our pack. Memories live forever and your offspring WILL win the war after all the battles we won together!
