Champion Little Hen

    I received the news just a couple of days ago that Champion Little Hen had been killed in a tragic kennel fight. Hen was always somewhat of an escape artist and she escaped for her final time. After finding herself free, she proceeded to go into a young prospect the Dream Team thought a lot of. Hen the proceeded to do considerable damage to the little gyp and sometime during her destruction she came within reach of the 2x winner L.A. Dream Team's Shady Lady. Hen being older and way out of shape took her death from Shady Lady, but only after showing her why she carried the title of Champion.

    I became associated with Little Hen in the Spring of 1990 when the Captain from the Dream Team asked me if I wanted to take her home and play around with her. I looked at her and told him sure, but in the back of my mind I wondered if she could live up to the quality that the Captain had been putting out there. She was not the prettiest dog I had seen as of late and she certainly didn't looks exceptionally athletic...an observation that proved to be accurate. Hen was big headed, a bit long in the body and somewhat barrel chested. But she housed in that barrel chest the heart of a true bulldog! What she lacked in athletic ability she made up for by determination that had to be seen to be believed.

    After I too Hen home I out her on a seventy-five foot cable run and watched her do some of the nuttiest things a dog could do. I had Hen for about a month when I got a call from Mike S. who had a bitch that he wanted to look at, so we ended up setting Hen down with her. Captain had told me that she had been schooled out some and in fact he had collected a couple of forfeits off her.

    Well, we let them go and Mike's bitch proceeded to punch a couple of deep holes in her, catching a couple of bleeders doing so. Damn that bitch could bite!! We broke them off for a couple of seconds so I could shut off the bleeders then released them again. The other bitch was outclassing Hen and out biting her. Hen stayed with her, driving, and it started to pay off. Hen began to do better and the other bitch was tiring after twenty minutes. We broke them off and let them run two scratches each. That was when I decided to open her to match.

    About two months later we moved to Florida and were able to pick up a match for my 1x winner Daisy. With this I put Hen on the back burner again. After all Daisy was a classy bitch with style.

    The end of 1991 we finally hooked Hen into Ron G.'s Nellie at 38 pounds. Nellie out classed Hen by working the head, ears and nose. I don;t think Hen got a hold other than skin for the first 15 minutes. By :35 Hen goes to the stifle and when Nellie gets her off she finds herself with quite a leak in the stifle joint. Hen starts working the chest and Nellie turns at :43 making a hard scratch a few minutes later. During this battle Nellie was quicker than Hen but by the 1:00 mark Hen had busted one stifle and had the front leg hurting badly. This of course slowed Nellie down enough that Hen was catching her more often, and after three scratches a piece Nellie could hardly stand up at 1:13 so Ron gave it up. After this match I called the Captain thinking I might send her back to LA to be bred. He said to keep her a while and if I wanted to, match her again.

    Well the rest is History, Hen went out against Ortega's Lucy and after 10 minutes she got in the stifles and Lucy turned at :13 and then refused to scratch at :21 making Hen a 2x winner. This quick win with her gave me more confidence in Hen's ability so I hooked her into J. Boyd & Gomez' Blondy, a tough bitch.

    A turn is called on hen at :16 but in reality she turned at :02 when she backed up to the bitch in a breeding type move. Hen did not start fighting until Blondy really got on her head hard at about :20. By this time she looked a little bad as she was bleeding about her head. We were considering picking her up when she suddenly got her favorite hod... then stifle at :44. A handle is made and Hen goes slow to the chest. I handled when Hen went to the stifle, and Blondy couldn't come over at :47 Hen was now a Champion.

    We healed Hen up and the Captain said he would like to get her back out West so I sent her to be bred a couple of time. The Captain had bred her before I got her and she produced Jack a 1x winner and Bonnie a 2x winner 1x loser. I currently have a young gyp, Brindy, off of Ch Little Hen and there is another pup called Tahoe in Georgia.

    Champion Little Hen, I want to thank you for being a real bulldog and thanks to the Captain and the LA Dream Team for allowing me the time with her. She will always have a spot in our hearts.
