Questions and More Questions!
Someone just contributed a new posting to a thread on Torch Flinn today and it got me looking up photos and clippings. As is so often the case, I ended up with many more questions after doing a little "research" than I had when I started!
I will start by saying that I wanted to save some photos of Torch (Evelyn/Mrs George) Flinn on my computer. When I went to the original page where one photo came from-a photo I had seen many times before- I read the information carefully.
One thing I noticed that I had not noticed when I saw this photo in the past was that it was submitted by Jackie Mertens of Elgin, Illinois, from Topbrass. Maybe in the past when I looked at the photo I just hadn't been a member here long enough to recognize Jackie and Topbrass as a breeder and a member of this forum. It certainly struck me this time, though.
The picture showed Torch with Joe Wattleworth and Tigathoe's Magic Marker who had been bred by Torch and Pat Sadler and owned and trained by Joe. Her call name was, "Chick".
I later looked at Chick's pedigree and saw that her dam was Tigathoe's Chickasaw. Just as the word, "Tigathoes" had sounded odd to me and sent me running for my girl Brit's pedigree when I first heard it, the word, "Chickasaw" now sounded familiar and unusual.
So I looked at Brit's pedigree again and she had a lot of "Chickasaw" dogs in her pedigree.
I have to ask. Where do the Chickasaw dogs come in? Who breeds or bred them?
As soon as I learn one thing, I have a thousand new questions.
I would very much like to know the connection between Chickasaw, Tigathoes, and Topbrass!
