It was Dan McCoy who received word of the Frenchman who lived in Louisiana by the name of Bourgeous. Bourgeous had received several dogs directly from Mr. William Lightner and for many years had bred and raised these dogs strictly for his own personal satisfaction. Bourgeous was extremely successful in preserving the "Red Nose" strain. Robert Hemphill went with Dan McCoy to Louisiana and aided by Gaboon Trahan, they purchased several dogs from Bougeous. Hemphill's kept only the highest caliber of these "Red Nose" dogs and began to form his foundation stock from them. Hemphill's early advertisements reflect that he had been raising "Old Family Red Nose" dogs since 1927. Throughout his life, Robert Hemphill remained dedicated to the breed and faithful to the "Old Family Red Nose" line. Old advertisements throughout his life reflected his great devotion to keeping the line pure. Until 1966 he advertised strictly "Old Family Red Nose" dogs. After that time, his ads began to reflect the adage of 1/8th to 1/16th "Dibo" breeding.
In view of the above Mike, how could Bob Hemphill give Jake Wilder Red Nose "junk"? Even 1/8 - 1/16 is a small percentage of out though providing some diversity in the line. Also the dogs above are referred to as being Red Nose in color? It would put Bob Hemphill in a negative light when we would think he did not cull his litters and actually pass on crap to another person. It makes no sense.
Another point is that of Ross Red Devil. Is he Old Family Red Nose in light of the above information by Mullin?
