Windy Spot’s Homemade Hooch
German Shorthaired Pointer
Birthday: May 24, 2014
“Our Little Nugget”, “Hoochie Coochie”
When we found out that Limoncello’s mother had another litter, we could not help but go visit her, and see the puppies.
On May 24, 2014, Cello’s Mom, Shoal Branch Ladybird (“Lady”) gave birth to 10 puppies… we are now the proud parents of one of them!

Introducing “Windy Spot’s Homemade Hooch!” (Hooch for short!):
Why “Windy Spot’s Homemade Hooch?” When we bought our log home, Brian was able to search back to the original deed of the home and find the first owner of our cabin, which was built in 1927. Brian google-searched the man’s name for the heck of it, and his search brought up a link for the English Setters Club in Medford, NJ. The first owner of our home owned an award-winning GSP (which is how we ended up wanting a GSP), and Windy Spot was the name of that first dog and award winning GSP that lived in our home. We named our cabin Windy Spot, after that GSP, before we even met Cello. Read about our story here!
Hooch climbed right into Brian’s lap…and the rest is history!
The name “Windy Spot’s Homemade Hooch” … Incorporates the name of the first dog/GSP that lived here, and also refers to Limoncello being the “Hooch” that we make here at our cabin, Windy Spot… AND connects his name to Cello’s too 🙂
Welcome home, Hooch!
I think Hooch is absolutely adorable. I’m excited to be able to watch him grow into another fantastic dock diver!
Thanks so much!! We are praying that he is a happy, healthy pup… And hope that he loves the water and diving as much as Cello! 🙂
Love the story of the name; so special.
Thanks, Jen!!! Really appreciate it!!
I own a litter mate to Hooch. As a matter of fact I own the sire of the litter. Please email me if you are interested in getting together in Medford at the Setter Club. The shorthair field trials are in October & November 2016
Omg! How exciting! We would love to meet you and Hooch’s dad!! Hooch is currently the #1 GSP in the world in the Big Air discipline of dock diving! He and our other 2 GSPs will be competing in the DockDogs World Championships this November!
