Every competitive upland hunter starts out in the game with high expectations for success, usually with a new dog that shows big potential!

For Bill Steeno it was his Liver Roan German Wirehairs that would make him a name in the game.

Wirehairs, “Kleine” and “Mondatal”, were staples in the game for many years as owner, Bill Steeno, would run these two phenomenal dogs at every event he could muster. His female, Kleine, was the older of the two. She would start in the game late and would make him proud with her fantastic ability to find birds! She would eventually find herself on National Television at the BDC WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in the TOP 10 RUN-OFF, pointing a bird, with a bird in her mouth! What a sweetheart!

Winning titles and making the Top 10 Run-Off in many Super Majors, she was really something to watch. Time after time she would find birds where there were supposedly none. She was a natural and would methodically work the field and rarely tire out. Whelped in 1997 she is one of the oldest dogs to ever compete and she was still running hard at 13 years old! For this hard working German Shorthair, she brought a great nose to the game and gave her owner, Bill Steeno, some very special memories.

“Fine Kleine Nachtmusik Bitte” enters the BDC Hall of Fame a Platinum Status Champion, earning 424 Lifetime Champion points; Championed 21x with 1 Super Major Championship and 1 BDC Major Championship Title.

She was a very special dog and will forever be remembered.

It is impossible to forget a dog that has given someone so many special memories. Ken and Mary Sweeney and their girl, JayDee, are no exception to this. Ken knew early on that he had something special in JayDee and loved to compete with her. He especially enjoyed the privilege of competing with her alongside Mark. Unfortunately their time was cut short as JayDee succumbed to liver cancer. JayDee earned 173 Champion Points in her short career, she was the 2014 Amateur Dog of the Year, and she was also the 2014 National Puppy Champion. She was paving the way to a very promising career. She was a special dog in the BDC and an even more special dog to the Sweeney's. Please keep them in your thoughts as they mourn this loss. RIP Sweet JayDee.
