Dixon is my first pointing dog. He was the boss of dog-puppies in his litter and was called with the name “Mr.President”, which he still recognize. That´s why he also got his official name Dixon: it was D-litter and the name Dixon comes from Nixon. But he is Mr.President also because of his high quality.
Dixon was nine weeks old, when I got him. Breeders Pavel and Iva had taught him many things already. He came with a whistle for example. Dixon learnt things very quickly. Indeed I didn´t have to teach him at all. He just did all I wanted. He seemed to understand even my hand-signs!

Dixon´s character is perfect, even thought he is “the boss”. He loves people, children and adults, and wants all their attention. He wants his hug times every day. Or then I have spoilt him, because I love him so much… He is very calm inside and outside. Inside the house he usually sleeps all the time near the people. If I go to the other room, he follow me and take the new place beside me. He has his own pillow, which he always carry with. In the evening he don´t want to go to the bed alone…He come with his pillow in his mouth and keep noise until he get somebody to sleep with him.

Dixon has desire to please, which I feel very important in characteristic. He works very well in a real hunting. He has an excellent nose and don´t miss games at the area. His pointings are very good (intensive). He uses wind the right way. And he runs when working. He runs fast and head up like setters. He retrieve and bring all games in one piece, not break them. Dixon can also come to tell me if he has found the game. Then he goes back and take the new pointing for the game he found earlier. Dixon has learnt this by himself! It happen, when we are in the deep forest and I can´t see him and his pointing. This thing dogs have to do in our winner class (Kaer)…

We moved to Suonenjoki on the July 1999 and quite soon happened an accident and Dixon hurt badly. He was not the same anymore, I realized years later, why. After accident our Vet only checked if legs were broken and they were not. In the beginning of 2004 Dixon couldn´t got up! I was sure that his life is over, when I drove to the Vet. There found one change in his back…Good luck he got better! He has good and bad days, but most of good days. He gets his professional massage about once a month. It has helped to keep problems away.

On the August 2008 I had to make very hard decision: to let my lovely Dixon-boy sleep away. The Vet never found what was wrong with him. His heart and other internal organs was all ok. There was something wrong in his throat. When he got tired his throat "closed" and he didn´t get air to breath. Finally his condition fell so down because of these breathing problems that it was better for Dixon to let him die.
The Vet suspected asthma as a result of living in our sick house, where was damage caused of mould (mold in american language). Actually I got also asthma there. The cold water and cortisone helped to get the throat open. One of my hunting friend said it would be cancer in the throat, but my Vet said it was impossible, because the cancer grow up bigger and bigger and that was not happened in his throat. Anything was growing up anywhere inside Dixon.

Dixon has three brothers and three sisters. One brother lives in Italy and I heard he has been an excellent hunter in the mountains of Italy. In Germany four sister have been in the breeding-tests (VJP,HZP), including Dixon in v.w.HZP. Brother Dexter(HD A) is in the breeding dog list in VGM.e.v. and he has about 25 litters in the Middle Europe. Sister Darca did also very well in the VJP and HZP, but unfortunately her HD was E. Also sister Doria passed VJP very well. In zuchtschau (special breeding show in Germany) have Dexter, Darca and Dixon all got grade v/v.

This should be the right pedigree of Dixon Ciperro. In our Kennelclub´s system finds some wrong names: Inca v. Hoohhols ZBDW107/78, Lars v. Hoohhols ZBDW21/80 and Belf ut Seelterlound ZBDW202/76. There is any Hoohhols kennel in the world and ZuchtBuch DW means maybe Deutsche Wachtelhunde...

Inka v. Hochholz, Lars v. Hochholz and Delf ut Seelterlound are all Large Münsterländers and in the ZGM register.

You can see there finds some "reg." dogs. It means that behind it finds DL (German longhaired pointer). All the others should be in the ZGM register.

The Mother Bea should also be the Int Ch, but the owner has never done it officiall.

Dixon has been ten times in FCI shows and once in special LM show (v.w.zuchtschau) in Germany. Dixon has got 5 CCs and 4 CACIBs in three different countries. Three CCs from Finland, which is the maximum the dog can take, one CC from Norway and one CC from Germany. The working dog need only two CACIBs in two different countries before it can get the title of Int Ch. There must be min. one year and one day between the first and the last CACIBs. Dog needs also the working test result before it will get the title of Int Ch. Today the test result has to be 2.prize twice or 1.prize once in open class. I decided that four CACIBs would be enough for Dixon… Dixon has always got at least “very good” in shows except once, when he decided to start his two years old puperty in the middle of the show ring…:) Here is the all his original critiques. Some words are so illegible that I´ve put the question mark after those words.

Dixon did things very good in tests too. It is not his fault that he don´t have more working awards. Dixon was the first LM, who started tests in Finland. It took many years until somebody gave me advices, how to train dog right and how I should lead the dog in the tests. I did many mistakes until I learnt. Actually I am still learning….:)

When I learn enough the special hunting words, I will translate those test critiques below.

Dixon olisi ollut erittäin lahjakas koira ja helppo koulutettavakin. Olisi vain pitänyt tietää mitä opettaa ja miten. Yhdelläkään isomünsterillä Suomessa ei taida vielä olla vastaavia kirjallisia arvosteluita kokeista, mitä Dixon on saanut: vauhdikasta ja laajaa maastonpeittävää yläpäistä hakua, varmaa linnunkäsittelyä... Menestys oli kiinni vain puutteellisesta tottelevaisuudesta ja ohjaajan osaamattomuudesta, sen voi jokainen lukea rivien välistä. Ohjaajan virheet eivät periydy ja se näkyy jo Dixonin jälkeläisissä: neljä koepalkittua jälkeläistä, eikä ikää lapsilla ole paljoa vuotta enempää tuloksen saatuaan. Tässä tulokset, joista 17.01.04 puuttuu tietokannoista, sillä onhan se nyt liikaa vaadittu koejärjestäjältä vielä postittaa tulokset Kennelliittoon raskaan koepäivän jälkeen...:)

Dixon passed the test and can use the title of v.W.

"Haku on aktiivista riistalle pyrkivää ja johtavaa hakua. Riistatyössä on erinomainen linnun paikallistaminen, räväkkä nosto, mutta kohtalaisesti perään. Pysähtyy kuitenkin käskystä. Noudossa on keskittymisvaikeuksia ja vitkastelua tuonnissa".

(Oma lisäys: Noudon keskittymisvaikeudet ja vitkastelu tuonnissa johtuivat siitä, että kun lintu heitettiin ja ammuttiin, läheisestä kuusiaidasta karkkosi fasaanikukko. Dixon kyllä meni suoraan noutolinnulle luvan saatuaan ja otti linnun heti suuhunsa, mutta paluumatkalla herran piti käydä fasaani suussa tarkistamassa kuusiaita. Ja ennen fasun lähtöä Dixonin nenä merkkaili kuusiaidan suntaan siellä olevaa fasua.)

Jari Karmala

"Hakee kahdessa erässä hyvää maaston peittävää hakua. Hakua rasittaa yksi törmäys ja ajoittainen maaston kertaaminen. Toisessa erässä seisoo fasaanin kaukaa. Hyvä nosto suoraan linnulle. Linnun lähtiessä ryntää pysähtyen. Noutoa rasittaa ohjaajan noutolupa ennen kuin se oli annettu ja linnun pudottelu".




Avo2, 74pist.

Mauri Harju

"Haku melko hyvää ja maastonpeittävää kohtalaisen vauhdikasta hakua. Itsenäinen koira. Hakee hyvin sekä aukealla että peitteisessä. Jäljittää fasaanin jokipenkassa. Vakuuttava seisonta, hyvä raju nosto. Koira levoton linnun lähtiessä. Nouto täydellinen kylmän linnun nouto".

Tässä vielä yksi parhaista kirjallisista arvosteluista, mitä Dixon on saanut, vaikkei palkituksi tullutkaan
(vastaavia löytyy muitakin tietokannasta):

10.12.1999 Timo Ailio:
Haku on innokasta ja riistalle pyrkivää toimintaa. Erikoisesti on huomioitava yläpäisyys ja tuulenkäyttö haussa. Riistatyössa on vakuuttava seisonta, joka on melko kaukaa tapahtuva juttu. Eteneminen on vapautunut suoritus suoraan linnulle…

Dixon is now gone, but his genes will come to live in Finland, GB, Australia, Spain, France, Holland and the United States.

You can find more information about Dixon in the news site. Some memories...

Mr.President Dixon on osoittautunut juuri niin erinomaiseksi jalostusurokseksi, minä saksalaiset rodun asiantuntijat sitä pitivät nähdessään hänet vorm walde HZP:ssä. Suomessa Dixon ei ikinä saanut arvostusta (tietyssä seisojapiirissä), muualla maailmassa sitten senkin edestä.

Dixon on nyt poissa, mutta hänen geenit jatkavat eloaan ainakin Britanniassa, Australiassa, Espanjassa, Ranskassa, Hollannissa ja Yhdysvalloissa.
