Your Kimo was a beautiful dog, I am sorry you lost him.
His pedigree is interesting, he was an outcross of 2 good lines. The dogs in the sire's pedigree are larger dogs, and the dam's lineage has some smaller dogs.
The Hollingsworth dogs were pretty big and that was a good bloodline back in the day but there are not many of them left now.
One thing to note is that the Vise Grip line is now almost all smaller dogs in the 28 to 40 pound range.
I do not know if I can post the kennel link here or not so I won't put it up, but CA Jack's current dogs are all inbred and line bred on Poncho and his littermates. Most of these dogs are pretty small, but his foundation dogs were larger, about 42 to 52 pounds.
Here are a few pedigrees of some current Vise Grip dogs, they are in the 28 to 39 pound range in size --

Looks like the tight breeding brought the size down, but they are some nice looking dogs.
