2009 Inductee – Stash Dillon Sojka

1 National Championship
3 Super Major Championships
3 Major Championships

September 19th 1996 was a special day and was the day that would forever change the dynamic of this game. It was the day that a little black and white springer spaniel was born into the world who would go onto win his first puppy event in 1998 and a BDC national championship in 2001, therefore collectively “hooking” his owner on this incredible sport.

Most people in the game today don’t remember him, and never watched him run and hunt, but with a strong work ethic this springer spaniel crashed the cover with as much tenacity as any dog today and marked and retrieved every bird with pure energy! Growling and kicking up the dirt with his rear paws before every run, his owner, Dan Sojka would just smile knowing he was ready to go!

Watching your dog perform week in and week out, the strong bond you make, and the feeling of anticipation for an upcoming event together is what this sport is all about. The BDC lifetime points system, and the entire BDC organizations goal for tracking a dogs lifetime achievements stemmed from “one dog” and the fact that “all” dogs should be remembered long after they retire and pass away.

It’s been 14 years since the legend, “Stash” was born and eventually hit the ground running, but throughout those years he was the inspiration for the BDC points system, tracking data and all the sport offers today. He gave his owner, Dan Sojka a vision that has provided us all an incredible opportunity to share those memories of past champions with friends and family that will forever be remembered.

Stash Dillon Sojka enters the BDC hall of fame as a legendary status champion earning 679 BDC lifetime points, he championed 33x with 2 super major championships, 2 BDC major championships, and a BDC national championship title.

He was a special dog who will be forever be remembered.

National Bird Dog Circuit

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.
