Ticker’s energy was explosive. He was a moderate to large ranging gun dog, but had the perfect blend of cooperation to make you feel like he was always working as your teammate. In the yard, Ticker was a puppy at heart, but when it was time to pursue game... he was all business.
His achievements were truly remarkable as every test he ran in resulted in him receiving a Prize I;Natural Ability at 12 months, Utility Preparatory at 14 months and Utility at 15 months; which mirrored the scores of his father, VC Sharp Shooters Me-Oh-My Ty MH. At the 2002 NAVHDA Invitational, Ticker became a third generation Versatile Champion, along with his sister and brother.
Father Time crept up on Ticker. When he died he was nearly deaf and he no longer had the body of an athlete, but his joy for life never faded. He brought a smile to our faces daily.
