Comment on successful outcrosses as represented in the stud's pedigree.
The outcross of our closely line-bred bitch, Ch. Kanebriar Jola Jubilee to Ch. Cinderella's Hit The Road, gave us the improvements we were seeking in the first generation. "Hit The Road" was a combination of Brandwyne and Parader lines and was an extremely well-balanced dog who excelled in stop area and correct front angulation. The resulting litter seemed to exhibit the best attributes of both parents, setting body type, coat and profiles. Kanebriar Confetti was the result of an outcross to Ch. Wickmere Silver Bullet with our Jubilee. Bullet also excelled in a clean, well-placed stop, coat and good balance of body. While we did not get all the desired details in the first generation, Bullet's notable contributions to the line became evident in succeeding generations. The breeding of Prime Minister to Trojans Second Time Around, whose sire was an inbred son of Ch. Black Hawk of Kasan, produced two champion littermates who, when bred together, produced the bitch, Ch. Keepsake When You Care Enuf. She was bred to a Prime Minister grandson, Ch. Kanebriar Patriot, to produce the prolific Ch. Kanebriar Keepsake Pioneer.

Talk about outcrosses with your stud dog, if any.
In the outcrosses made to date, Hogan has proven to be especially proficient in improving eyes, muzzles, fronts and coats.

Comment on the virtues of the stud dog's get.
Certain virtues seem to be consistent in his get: long, lean heads, elegant outlines, profuse coats, sound bodies with good bone and substance, and good movement. His offspring also seem to inherit his own steady, fun-loving and outgoing temperament.

Other comments about the get, including conformation qualities, temperament, show career, etc.
Only two of Hogan's offspring have made an appearance at our National Specialty; both won their respective classes. Ch. Skyview Online won the 12-18 Dog class in Virginia Beach and Castlebar's Evening Star won the Open Tri-color Bitch class at this year's CCA in Kansas. Another daughter, Ch. Castlebar's Dangerous Beauty (see photo on homepage), has won a number of BOVs in tough California competition and has made her mark winning a Group 1 and two Group 3s all before two years of age. Several of his progeny have won their points and BOVs from the puppy classes.
