Kingdale's Belle

1942 -- black (2 yellow littermates)

The pedigree in general circulation and commonly published in breed reference books for this bitch (the granddam of NFC Cork of Oakwood Lane) is wrong, as is readily discovered merely by tracing it in the AKC Stud Books. This is her correct pedigree.

For comparison, this is the erroneous pedigree printed in Warwick and other reference books:

Kingdale's Belle -- not quite!!
whoops! for this pedigree to be correct,
she'd have to be born before her grandsire!!

Queen Kole

(spelling varies)
Trader Horn
Bancstone Dinah

Why do we care? Because in their day, her (real) ancestry came from important working bloodlines, particularly for early yellows in the northern Great Plains. Most pre-1935 yellows in America were registered with the Field Dog Stud Book (in those days the most prominent bird dog registry) and consequently fell out of historical notice as Retriever registrations migrated toward the American Kennel Club, and as breeding patterns shifted toward using titled dogs in preference to mere gundogs.
