This is a beautiful pup out of 2008 Francix x Bolt cross. Her name is Daisy and she is owned by Josh Kreitz of PA. Daisy is now a little over 2 years old At 16 months old this is what Josh had to say. Daisy is a nice big female, looks an awfully lot like her mother Lone Pine Francis. This is what Josh has to say about her. " I think for a 16 month old dog that is running and treeing and fighting a coon is fabulous. She is super fast on track and is hard hunting out of the box.". And that says an awful lot that's for sure! Pretty notable for a young dog.
Update 1/3/12 from Josh - I wanted to let you know we started hunting hard again and Daisy is treeing like a champ. Last 2 times out she has treed very hard and even when we get there she continues to tree. She has been tracking very well and it seems that her treeing is picking up to. I think she has become a complete coon hound. We look to see a lot more of this pretty Lone Pine hound!
Here is a testimonial of another pup owner that has a pup out of
Lone Pine Lil Francis x Lone Pine Buck 2.
Ralph and Jody McClain of PA have this beautiful pup named Daisy.
Here is their Son with Daisy.
Here is the email I received from them "This is the McClains.
We have the one female called Daisy out of Lil Francis x Buck 2.
The reason for this E-Mail is to just let you guys know Daisy treed
her first coon on Thursday night 10-2-14 totally on her own.
We are very proud of her. This is at the age of 8 1/2 months old.
Daisy has never been worked with another dog, we have always worked her
on her own.
I'm not saying she is a full blown coon dog, but I'd say it's a good start.
Daisy is 8-1/2 months old and has just treed her own coon.
Kudos to you for doing a great job!
UPDATE on Daisy
This is the McClains. Well Daisy has turned a year old this
week and we figured we would give ya an up date and send
ya a couple pictures. The picture shows Daisy with some
of her findings along with our sons Alex and Jesse. Daisy
is out of the litter of Lil Frances and Buck 2 since treeing
her first coon at the age of 8 1/2 months old she has treed
between 20 to 25 coon that we have seen on tree as of turning
a year old this week. And she has done all on her own she is
a very independant dog and does not want to help another
dog and dont want any help from any either.We are very
proud of her not just being a good hunting dog but also
being a good pet here around the house she is very
involved in our everyday life. So we are very happy with her.
I do have to say this dog has been so easy to train for
treeing coon its like its just automatic. I dont think it was
me, I believe she could of been a good coon dog for anyone.
And I would have to say I would recomend to anyone looking
for a dog or pup to try your breeds. So we would like to
Thank you and Steve again.
Thanks Ralph and Jodi
Update from the McClains received 2/14/16.
Hi Steve and Lavena We were just writing with an update on Daisy She is a female out of Lil Lone Pine Francis and Buck 2 She just turned 2yrs old in January and has grown into a very nice looking , long legged ,70# female Since we have written last she is still doing wonderful She's still consistent and very fast We ve been considering maybe looking into going to a youth hunt with her and my son But we're really not sure of that yet. I do want to say probably 8 out of 10 times we hit the woods with Daisy within 15 to 30 min she has treed if not before and that makes a really good dog to hunt kids with when they need to be back home early because of school the next day So our hunts normally consist of tree 1 and head home. I also want to add to her history Daisy is very much a part of our family's every day life she is around us and visitors of our house everyday I've never seen a hound with as much attitude and personality as her Ya know maybe its from always being trained and hunted alone I have to say we've never had an issue with her running off game either. And with in saying this I would always recommend your kennel and breed to anyone. Thank You The McClains
Update 4/27/17: Hi Steve and Lavena
This is Ralph McClain.I am E Mailing with an update about Daisy in January she turned 3 years old So at the time of this e mail she is 3years and 3 months old April 24 2017. The reason for e mailing you is to let you know in the last year and 1 monthwe have had Daisy in 9 or 10 night hunts. Probably as you know as a very experienced hunters not all of them has went smoothly. But I feel that its went ok. Daisy has had 2 first place and a second place wins. So which should be enough to earn her a Night Champion title. Which we are pretty proud of especially never having intention when buying her to do anything like this. My son Jesse has done all the handling and calling at the hunts and he has been 15 and 16 years old at the time. And myself I never did anything like this before either. So this was all new to all three of us.And what an experience its been. LOL But a lot of fun too. Just for a refresher Daisys parents are Buck 2
and Lil Lone Pine Francis. Gotta say at these hunts Daisy is a very independent dog. Always gets off to her self andwill never go join in with other dogs on track or tree. Literally watched her come down through the woods one nightclimb up on a tree a dog was treeing on smell around never barked got down and went down through the woods and in about 10 min treed her own coon. Very very independent But at home here She is still our family pet and stillvery involved in our every day life. Ok if I am wrong about her title stuff please straighten it out for me.
Congratulations Jody! You are not wrong. Daisy is a Nite Champion!

The Best Christmas Ever! 2010
Lilly (a beautiful Judy x Wing Dinger "Bo" cross) was a very pleasant Christmas surprise for Tanner Folk of PA.
His parents were quite inventive at occupying Tanner while they travelled several hours to the kennel to get this beautiful big pup as a super Christmas surprise for Tanner. They look like a perfect match. We will await great pictures and stories from this future coonhunter!
Lilly has sure grown since you last saw her. She is a wonderful loving dog. She really makes us laugh. We love her very much.
Daryl and Tanner caught this coon tonight and treated Lilly to her first coon experience. Man she wants more! Notice the foaming at her mouth. She really got into it!
My boys were very excited as well.
Happy Dog, Happy Boys.... Priceless!
We received the following from Thomas Coneby 3/30/12 with the above pictures. I have a pup from your July 1,2011 litter .( Goose neck Willis and Allie Gator). His name is Odie, This is his first coon. Great dog.
The coon is easy to see in the big picture but I also had to include one of Odie on the wood! I also want to point out the this pups is only 8-9 months old. Keep us posted Thomas!
9/26/13 - Got a call from Thomas! Odie is doing great! He is running and treeing coons on his own at night and has become quite a squirrel dog in the day. Dual purpose hound!
Thomas is so impressed with him he is getting a pup from our fall litters. Thanks Thomas! See you soon...Send us some pics of Odie on the wood!
Tyler Peasley from Washington State has a Katie2 x Hercules cross. Here is how Hoss is doing as of 10/2016
Hoss, a beautiful Sharp Tooth Lone Pine Katie2 x GRCH SHarp Tooth Kennels Hercules cross running bear in Washington State. Owned by Tyler Peasley. he is the grey silver walker shown. Here is what Tyler says about him. "He's been a phenomenal bear dog for me up here. Would like the chance of buying a female bred similar to run on big game.
Hoss has been amazing from truck to tree for me. I've never had a dog out work him on the box. He's also proven to have a good nose to get the older cat tracks moving. And not to many dogs around here that bay as hard as he does. He likes getting close! Last week he ended a 6 hour bay in the corn fields on three legs with his pack of 4. I love bear bays and love a gritty dog that will stick around to get the job done!" Thanks Tyler
Hoss is the grey and tan walker in the back
