American Field

Random Notes . . .

Jun 11, 2018

The United States Postal Service brought a unique envelope to The American Field the week of June 4 and earmarked for the Field Dog Stud Book.

The envelope contained FDSB registration certificates for thirteen dogs — twelve pointers and a single setter.

Tom G. Duskin of Douglasville, Ga., had returned the certificates noting that each of the dogs had died. The certificates date back more than forty years to 1971 when that certificate for the setter — Saber Boy Crockett — was issued on November 13, 1971. Tom Duskin was living in Gastonia, N. C., at the time.

Of the remaining certificates seven were for pointer females and five for pointer males, all well bred.

Tom was living for a spell in South Bend, Ind., when he registered a pointer female by Red Water Rex in 1977.

A few years later he was living in Lithia Springs, Ga., and registered a pointer female by White Knight’s Button. Two pointer males followed, one by Redemption’s Reward and the other by Miller’s Silver Bullett.

The final four certificates — two males and two females – show Tom Duskin living at his current address in Douglasville, Ga.

It is an intriguing odyssey of one man’s affilliation bird dogs over a span of more than forty years.
