Nitro is calm, low key and relaxed when in our home. Frank uses him occasionally for grouse, woodcock, pheasant hunting, as well as waterfowl pickup.
He has the attributes that we require in a perfect stud and with his fine bloodlines we know he will continue as great replacements for CFC Sweeper and Bowfire.
When you have the opportunity to visit our home you will be able to visit with Nitro.
CFC Springville Imperial Sweeper
#1 Dog Canada 2001
#1 Dog Ontario 2002
#1 Pet at the O'Grady home
Sweeper produced numerous field trial champions including Mario Gagnon's 2008 & 2009 hi-point Canadian dog CFC Courbois Imperial Molly. After Sweeper retired he spent much of his time in front of the fireplace playing with our grandchildren, Zaine and Hunter.
Although he was an amazing dog afield, we will always remember him as a perfect gentleman and as the best housepet we could have. Sweeper passed away 2009.

Our Tradition Continues
Since 1970 to enhance our bloodlines, we have sent many of our spaniels to be bred to the
greatest springer spaniel studs North America has to offer, including the following:
Our Bowfire passed away suddenly April, 2019, at 9 years of age. Like our Sweeper, he was our grandson Hunter's best pal. Bowfire was a fine hunting & trial dog but will always be remembered as a great family pet who loved to greet all visitors.
Hunter and Bowfire, best pals
