Born a Star :iipholds name in Kennel Club By SUSAN JEFFRIES ' Courier-Journal & Times Dog Writer ' A German Shorthaired Pointer named Huntabird's Born a Star lived up to her name Yesterday as she won the Louisville Kennel Club puppy match at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center. The 3-month-old puppy, making her ring debut, was handled by her breeder-own-e'f, Patti Lohr, of Scottsburg, Ind. Star is the latest in a line of winning German Shorthairs, including a couple of champions, carrying the Huntabird prefix during the past six years. Penny, another homebred bitch, topped the sporting group at last fall's Louisville match. ; Star is a granddaughter of the famed Ch. Gretchenhof Columbia River, winner of the Westminster show several years ago. "These puppies were practically walking when they were whelped," Mrs. Lohr commented, referring to the uniformity and robust health of the litter, which was lute arriving. Their mother, Heidi Ho, was working in the field a few weeks after whelping six puppies. ; In winning yesterday's match, Star defeated 340 puppies representing nearly every breed recognized by the American Kennel Club. She won the sporting group earlier in the day to become a finalist. The other finalists were winners of the hound, working, terrier, toy and non-sporting groups.
