Hamilton’s Blue Diamond

Received this from the Tracys.  It’s long overdue.



            Hamilton’s Blue Diamond (call name Jett) is being nominated for the Field Trial Hall of Fame and we are requesting your support and vote.  You may have had the opportunity to see Jett compete and witnessed his great abilities first hand.  Jett entertained people from across the country, he was an intense competitor, demonstrating the qualities we all admire and seek in a dog.  His ability to hunt and find game was second to no one, his desire to please was beyond any expectation, his style and the way he covered the ground was a sight to behold.  Hamilton’s Blue Diamond was possible one of the greatest setter we have ever seen.


He accomplished quite a record in the two years that he competed in the shooting dog circuit.  Only dog to win both Shooting Dog Derby & Shooting Dog Setter Award in the same year, 1997.  That includes All Age too.
