Reddogg,
Thank you for the nice comments. Maybe someday we will meet. It has been a while but I use to get back to that part of the country ever once in a while.

I truly feel it is so important to get this information out where people can use it if they wish. The more people know about the history and understands it. the better job they will do on producing nice hounds.

Finley River Chief
Boy, what a blast from the past. Brings back pleasant memories. The 1st real coondog I ever owned I got from my uncle in southern Indiana. He was about 7 when I got him in 1976, I think. He was out of Harrod'[s Kentucky River Jack and his dam was out of Deep River Spot. Old man Harrod owned him for awhile and then he passed through a couple of hands before my Uncle got him. He was grossly mistreated along the way as he was somewhat man shy. Took him a long time to make up with a new owner. But he was a coondog. I watched him trail cold tracks that other dogs didn't open on and in some cases didn't even try to trail with him. He was a bawl mouth tree dog so he wasn't going to win any treeing contests. But he wouldn't leave.
He was a funny old hound. I thought the world of that dog. Followed him all over Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois. I was young and lived on afarm so I let him run loose except during coon season. He would go off and tree a coon by himself sometimes. The old dog's name was Kentucky River Diamond when old man Harrod owned him. My Uncle changed it to Diamond Jack. He looked a lot like old Chief. I could tell stories on him all day. Sadly, someone stole him when he was around 9 years old or he got off and got killed. Either way, he disappeard. I have a lot of respect for Finley River dogs and they are in almost all pedigrees. I hear hunters run the bloodline in the dirt and all the while I am thinking, truth be known, Finley River blood is in hounds they are hunting. Ha Ha

FINLEY RIVER HATCHET - FINLEY RIVER LUCKY LITTERMATES

DUAL GRAND CHAMPION FINLEY RIVER LUCKY (Littermate to Dual Grand Champion Finley River Hatchet)





DUAL GRAND CHAMPION FINLEY RIVER BANJO





NITE CH. KALAL'S MINNESOTA COOKIE

A lot of times the Stud is the dog that gets most of the credit when a dog or litter turns out great. The female is forgotten. Here is a case where a female helped make a stud dog one of the most popular in his day. Kalal's Minnesota Cookie was bred to Dual Grand Ch. Finley River Banjo a number of times.

From this cross came many wonderful coonhounds and Dual Grand Champions such as Dual UKC Grand Champion ACHA Night Champion Dual NKC Grand Champion 4th Place 1982 NKC World Championship Finley River Hatchet, Dual Grand Champion Finley River Lucky, Dual Champion Kalal's Minnesota Jodie and many more.

Cookie is one of the females that helped make this great Treeing Walker Breed.

Thank you for the history lesson. The best 2 dogs I ever owned were litter mates brother & sister. The were doubble bred finley river banjo on there fathers side and doubble bred Houses tom tom on there moms side. I owned the mother she was a litter mate to Houses Lipper. The female pup was gray. No body around here had seen one before. The owner of the father said he had never seen one before but had heard of them. Bud was a big time breeder in the day and is the reason there some darn good walkers in these parts. I was 19 and took a nightshift job. I would give anything to have those dogs back. These pups trained there selfs. My male won his first bench show at 3 months old and treed his first coon at 5 months old with no help. My female treed her first coon at 7 months old. Turbo struck first with her right behind him. As the track went on I noticed they weren't together. When turbo treed with a coon. She was over the next ridge with a coon of her own. By the time these pups were 1 year old it was just to hard to hunt them together. 9 out of 10 drops they would split tree. I started swapping them out every night. One night I would hunt Turbo the next night I would hunt Joy. I sold both these dogs in 1994 to a man from Georga for $300.00. Man was I young and dumb. Thank you again for the history lesson. It brought back some great times.

Here is a tidbit about about how FR Chief slipped thru a friends hand. Two brothers Jack and Frank Goodridge and Jack's friend Cooper heard that John Guilford's wife or soon to be ex had the dogs for sale.. They went up to the house and proceeded to deal with her.. Jack and Cooper were the dealers and Frank was just along for the ride, After some drinking and bartering bak and forth Frank got antsy from sitting in the living room while cooper and jack talked with her.. He yelled from the other room "Well damit give her 400 and screw the rest" at which time they all were told to leave without Chief.. I think Cooper did end up with a dog from them called Michigan Bill and not sure who had Michigan Lady, As for my first walker I had a female that had FR as a grandsire and Feltman's Lenawee Queen for the dam in1969 0r early 70's
