Hypointe Kennel Setter Buck

I received bad news from my friends at Hypointe kennel this week. My friend Nick Mellon called to tell me that his dog, Buck, passed away suddenly on Wednesday. He was a 2 1/2 year old finished Lion Country Setter. Just found dead in the kennel, possible heart attack.

I feel really bad for Nick and Valerie who loved him, trained him, and took great care of him. I haven’t sold any of my setters in 20 years and it was a gift to them and they trained his brother Trey for me, also. Trey, aka “I’m Lucky Three”; is a tricolor will be will be my cover boy when his dad Deuce is gone.

I’m sorry to hear of his passing, he was nice! RIP!

Good news, I’d like to offer Nick and Valerie his sister, I call her wild Lilly. She is a hard tail cracking, speed type, like her mother. A super smart bird finder and loves to point. Nick and Valerie she is yours if you want her. Maybe she can carry on the Lion Country line. I currently have 5 setters which is getting to be too many for me. I’m probably not going to breed any more.

    Buck! We are saddened by Lion Country’s Bucks passing. He was a dog that we enjoyed very much. He was one of the dogs on our guide string. Val was close to him and he was her pal. He was in South Carolina this past winter and became part of the family.
    We are making plans to come and see you. Maybe this weekend. Thank You very much. Nick Mellon
