My husband and I got our first lab in 2001. Our plan was to have a fantastic family dog.
We got Hudler at 7 weeks, went to all the training classes, got his CGC, and he turned
out to be an awesome dog. That started our love for the breed. I knew that this was the
beginning of our life with Labradors. Hudler's gone on to earn his CD and RN titles.
In 2002, we added Maddy to our family. We ended up with a girl with a high retrieving drive.
Because of Maddy's working aptitude, I got involved with hunting, obedience, and rally. We
have trained together and earned our WC, CD, UCD and RAE titles. This girl is an amazing working
dog and really taught me about building a relationship with Labradors. Maddy also suffers from
Elbow Dysplasia, but with surgery, diet, exercise, and supplements, we have managed her condition
for over 6 years now. All her titles were earned AFTER her surgery!
In 2005, we decided it was time to find a puppy that we could show. We were lucky to
add Grace to our family (Thank you Susan and Wayne Martin of Wynmar Labradors). This
girl is a wonderful addition to our family with a classic Labrador temperment and
Labrador type. Grace has earned many First Place ribbons in AKC Conformation shows,
as well as her RN and RA titles.
In 2008, Grace was bred to CH Epoch's Bacardi Joe Banner, for our very first litter.
Jack and Jed have stayed on with us, and are busy training for OB, Rally, and
Conformation. Both have earned their United Kennel Club CHAMPION titles.
In 2010, we decided to breed Grace one last time, to BISS GCH Big Sky's Stone Kutter. Our black and chocolate pups
were born the day after Christmas. As fate had it, we kept another chocolate boy...Grizzly!
