GRHRCH UH Missy's Cajun Dakota MH, better known as "Cody", was a stately 90 pound, long legged,
black male Labrador that runs with the speed and style desired of a Grand Champion
or Master Hunter. An excellent marking and lining dog, he ran as hard on a blind as he did a mark.
With 13 HRC International Grand Hunt test passes, Cody made history as the first retriever ever
to accomplish this achievement. His consistency was outstanding. He ran in 15 Grand tests,
passed a phenomenal 13, and went 6 for 6 in AKC Master Hunter tests. Both his Grand Hunting
Retriever Champion and Master Hunter titles were added to Cody's name at 4 years of age. He is
also a member of the HRC's 2,000 Point Club, listed as the UKC's top sire,
sired 7 Grand Champions, and several with one Grand pass already.
He was chosen as Purina Dog of the Year in their 1999 ad campaign and he is still featured
in some of their ads today. In 2002, he also claimed victory to the World Duck Dog Championship
in Stuttgart, Arkansas. Bill and Cody went up against 50 of the toughest competitors in the
retriever world, in the most recognized duck hole in the USA, and emerged winners of the event. Cody later
went on to take 2nd place in the Super Retriever Series held in Northfield, Minnesota,
and 3rd place in the ESPN Great Outdoor Games held in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
Cody was hunted on dove, quail, duck, geese, woodcock, pheasant, and chukar. Bill and Cody
hunted in Illinois, Ohio, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, and Texas. Quiet in the duck
blind, he turned into "all business" when its time to retrieve. He was as much at home in the house,
lying beside Bill's chair as he was competing at the events or hunting from the blind. As you can
tell, Cody had done it all, time after time.
Cody passed away in May of 2006. His heritage and talent still available through frozen semen.
As a proven sire, his desirable traits are passed along to his offspring with a pedigree rich
with talent and ability. Litters are large, early maturing pups, and all three color variations.
Many of Cody's offspring can be found running various events across the country - and are bringing
home titles of their own, including Grand Hunting Retriever Champions, Master Hunters,
Hunting Retriever Champions, and Upland Hunters.
