All our labs are house dogs enjoying being under foot, with a chew toy or ball or just napping in a cozy spot.
We're involved in Obedience, Rally and Breed competition. Our girls have OFA hips and elbows, Cardiologist Echo heart exams, annual CERF exams, Optigen and EIC statuses.
The one thing about labs is that they love to both work and smooze! Take a few minutes to visit with our girls and don't forget the dog biscuits!

Puppies arrived on November 15! Our girl Chewie was bred to Chucklebrook Bobolink by Jayhawk ("Link") and we have 6 beautiful pupsters! Check out our for our puppy blog of their first 8 weeks. We are also looking forward to pups in 2015 - we are planning on breeding our girl Carmen to BPISS Dalwater Martini at Rycroft ("Marti") - we expect pups to arrive in February 2015! Please feel free to email me for additional information!
Our girl Winnie is growing up - I really do need to create her own page one of these days! Here's a picture of her at 7 months and first attempt at getting some stacked pictures of her:
We've been out and about at shows again this spring! Chewie picked another leg toward her Rally Advanced Excellent (RAE) Title and Suzie earned her Rally Advanced title! Then this fall at the Burlington VT trials Suzie earned her Rally Excellent title in 3 straight shows with a bumper leg to boot! I was so excited and pleased with how she did! It really is a lot of fun to be out and about with 'the girls'. Learning, keeping positive and importantly having a good time - whether we qualify or not - are the the most important things!
I do have to give a big shout out and congratulations to 3 of Chewie's puppy families - Olive earned her CGC last fall, Willoughby earned her TD last fall and her TDX this fall and Lola earned her CGC this spring!!! Way to go girls!
Here are some show scenes with our girls from previous years!
