Merganser's Hacker MH, WC, CGC
February 14, 2000 – May 21, 2012
I still miss Hacker. He was with me 24/7. I had to wait three months until I could put his obituary up on this website.
Merganser's Hacker MH, WC, CGC had one of the highest powered pedigrees of any dog that we own......and he was our calmest house dog. We referred to him as our "Mellow Yellow."
Hacker received his Master Hunter title at age two, passing five out of six straight tests. Hacker was a Master National Finalist at the age of 3, competing in an eight day Master Hunt Test competition held in Thomasville, Georgia in November 2003. Hacker ran eight Qualifying field trials in 2002 and 2003. He received a Reserve Judges Award of Merit and two JAMs. Hacker also had Working Certificate and Canine Good Citizen achievements. Hacker was quite the hunting machine. His main preference is pheasant.
Both of Hacker's parents are field champions. His parents, grandparents and great-grandparents are all black. Hacker's dam is a littermate sister to 1998 NFC-AFC Abe's Ebony And Ivory.
Hacker was handsome, athletic, and extremely sociable. He weighed 85# and stood 25 inches at the point of the shoulder. Hacker's pedigree is a nice yellow outcross. Hacker has produced several Master, Senior, and Junior Hunters as well as exceptional family, hunting, and service dogs.
