NorCal, the foundation of the T-top line is Go Man Sam. Go Man Sam is also the foundation sire of the Hoffmiester line. T-top Rat was a grandson of Sam top and bottom and Hoffmiester's Rusty Red was a son of Sam. T-top Raven was out of Bomber and Bell and both were out of Rusty Red. Rat and Raven were mated numerous times and produced some outstanding dogs. The Hoffmiester dogs are a big part of Tom's bloodline but are not the foundation of the T-top bloodline. My Billy dog is out of a Rat x Raven male and a female out of his half brother and my old female. I have hunted with 5 from the Rat x Raven cross and they are all nice dogs. I have hunted with pups out of 4 of those dogs and they are all nice dogs. If you make it to the R.Q.E. hunt in Oregon you can see the dogs we are packing. They all have a lot of T-top blood. We will have six dogs for sure and maybe a few more.
