Dan grew up on the east coast; hardly a place for an All-Age dog to get a start.  He finished his Open Field Championship in March of 2000 at the Susquehanna Brittany Club spring trial.  Dan won a five point Open gun dog stake and finished second in the Open all age stake at that same trial. That summer, owner Steve Glass sent Dan with professional trainer John Kline to summer camp in Montana.  Both men recognized Dan's unique athletic ability, and incredible forward hunting style.  The prairies were the place to polish these attributes.  It seemed to have paid off; Dan was Runner up in the Quail classic and won the Nationals that fall.  Dan continued his winning ways in 2001, winning the Kasco and Iams dog of the year award that year.  Dan finished in the top 10 Purina All-Age point standings for five years in a row.

Dan’s short career was highlighted by 15 American Field Championship wins, and 3 Runner-ups.  This is more than any other Brittany to date.  Besides winning the Nationals twice, (one of only three dogs to have accomplished this feat), he won the Southern Open Brittany Championship twice, The Region 19 AAA Championship twice, the Pheasant Classic/Championship 4 times, and the Region 3 AAA Championship 5 times.

Dan passed away on July 21, 2006.  He was inducted into the Brittany Field Trial Hall of Fame in February 2007.  Many of Dan’s offspring have started to show their potential to carry on in their father’s footsteps.  Among them are FC Linvel’s Ace of Diamonds, FC/AFC The Rock II, FC Poison Ivy, and FC/AFC Ru-Jems Diamond Jim.  FC Diamond Hill She’s Gone has points in both the field and show ring, and DC/AFC Diamond Hill Dangerous Man was named “Dual Dog” at the 2008 Eastern Futurity, winning both Best in Futurity Show and the Eastern Futurity All Age Stake. In November 2008, Dan was inducted into the ABC Hall of Fame.
