Life and times of Toske vom Oechtringer-Forst(aka Toska): From Housebreaking to the VGP: Toska came to us as an 8 week old puppy from Claus Wilhelm Wolle's highly respected v. Oechtringer-Forst breeding program in Germany: She is an outstanding individual: Always happy: Superb Character. Finished her VJP with 72: HZP with 175: VGP Prize 1 (TF)293Points: Breed show with SG/SG 9/10 ZR#249/07: 62/62:HD Free(A): vWD Clear (by DNA): Toska is an individual that lives to please: Always cooperative: There is never a doubt that when she is in the field, she's there as a team member. Toska's puppies have exhibited all the same talent and good attitude that she possesses:  When bred to  the son of Frida v. Erthal (Erna),  Des vom Slaney-Vale,  she produced wonderful family Drahthaars.  From that combination,  I chose Heather vom Slaney-Vale,  who has proven to be everything I could have hoped for and more:  When Heather was bred to Rex vom Fuchsberg, for the N litter,  I kept Nora vom Slaney-Vale,  and Nora is proving to be every bit the quality of individual that is her mom Heather,  Her Grandmother Toska,  Her Grandfather Des,  and her great grandmother Erna,   Nora's sister,  Nella vom Slaney-Vale,  owned by my dear friend Andrea Clarke (vom Nordlicht) is proving to be a terrific individual,  and was awarded best Water Performer at the 2018 Armbruster as well as placing in the top 10.   
Two others of Toska's puppies,  Esther vom Slaney-Vale owned by my dear friend Blaine Eickelschulte (vom Ike) and Kris vom Slaney-Vale,   owned by Dr. Tim Zoellner,  SD,  have been certified for breeding,   and are forming the basis of other Breeding lines.
Without question,  Toska is the type of individual,   that when on a pedigree as part of a line,  a breeder can be absolutely certain,  that strong genetics of Health,  temperament and versatile ability have been significantly contributed
Toska is now 12 years old and still living a very healthy and active life: continuing to bring joy to her self, to her daughter Heather, to her grand daughter Nora, and to me and my family every day.  I've loved her from the first day I laid eyes on her and she licked my face, and that has never changed.
