Mafia was under bred and never one single ad ran and I'm trying to remember if we ever charged a single stud fee. He always just wanted a pup. Cheyenne still if asked will tell you he is simply just a coonhunter not a stud dog owner. I think in his mind eye that it entails advertising and bragging on your dogs while doing it something that will never be his thing. His mindset is he likes his dogs let them speak for themselves and if someone else likes them and what they throw they will find him, many have. Despite the lack of that big grin Dalton totes around he couldn't have been prouder of his son and his dog. And I can assure you Cheyenne was the one person in our group that wasn't sleep deprived lol! The man gets up at 3:35 all week for work and hunts nearly every night but Sunday.
We have been blessed by a dog that had an uncanny ability to tree coons, many would consider a once in a lifetime thing, that threw very nice offspring. Out of this offspring the one he kept (many others have been exceptional in their own right) also has proven himself in the woods and as a reproducer. The first seldom happens much less the second.
We got Mafia as a weaning pup at a time with three kids at home who were active in every sport and school activities there were. Hitting big hunts was not a priority nor was promoting a coonhound. For people around these parts since Chey was a teenager they knew if he showed up at a hunt he wasn't there for the dog show lol. He still isn't sure what is the best dog he has ever owned was. It has just been in the more resent years with the kids finally raised that he has had the ability to travel which has given recognition to something he has loved and worked hard at for decades. You would have to go back to pre-diapers to find a time when more than a few nights have went by that he wasn't in the woods. The making of consistency comes with consistency and dogs with as much drive and love of being in the woods as their owner has.
Dalton thinks a little differently than dad and for anyone that wants to see what's out there out of Mafia and offspring of those you can friend him on Facebook and the join the Team Mafia group. There are pups out of Maf and lots of grandchildren from all sorts of crosses owned by people from across the country. Occasionally he goes Facebook live while out hunting but did more so before he lost Demon this past summer.
Again, thank you to all!
