Whippoorwill’s National Champions ~ Podcast Interview with Dr. Jack Huffman

Just prior to heading back to the Memphis Airport last February after several days at the 2012 National Championship, I was able to get a quick interview with Whippoorwill Farm’s Dr. Jack Huffman. I had the opportunity to visit Whippoorwill Farm during a 2007 trip to Grand Junction when Larry Garner and Brad Harter invited me to tag along with them to Mississippi. Several handlers including Tommy Davis, Rich Robertson and Bud Daugherty were there training dogs with Jack’s son, Larry. Among the dogs I saw that day were Strut, Tommy B and Whippoorwill Wild Agin who I watched compete in the 2006 National Championship. He would go on to win it in 2008 making the seventh National Championship win for Whippoorwill Farm!
