OUR GALS

BLU

 

 

Blu is our whimsical girl.  She always is happy-go-lucky and loves to go anywhere with Mark.  Blu earned her UKC Championship with one weekend of showing. Mark is having so much fun with Blu that her having puppies will be delayed a bit. Click Here to view Blu’s Pedigree.

KATIE

Katie is a true toy lover!  She loves to play fetch and even brings the ball back!  She loves to have her tummy rubbed.  We are planning a litter of puppies with Katie X Keeper (Blue Heaven Labs)  in the spring. Click Here to view Katie’s Pedigree.

UPDATE 10/19/17:  Katie is not being bred for a fall litter.  While playing, she tore her CCL (in humans ACL).  She had surgery to repair the tear on October 10.  She is doing very well on her recovery which will last 5-6 months.  We have never had this injury so we are learning that Katie will be in a kennel and hand walked for 5-6 months.

SHELBY

Mark and I with Shelby and her ribbons from the UKC show

5 months old

Shelby is a daughter of Emma and Keeper.  She was born on 5-7-17.  She is the most gentle puppy we have ever seen.  I think she surpasses Pippa in gentleness.  Shelby’s color is yellow but she has a hint of red which we love.  This goes back to Grandpa Conrad.

UPDATE 10/19/17:  Shelby is in week 4 of PET I at Companion Dog Club.  She completed PUPPY KINDERGARTEN and made good friends with 3 other puppies.  Shelby will be in her first UKC show this weekend, October 21-22.  Her second show will be at the Council Bluffs Kennel Club over the Thanksgiving weekend.  The UKC show is a puppy class but the AKC show is 6-9 month competition.  

UPDATE 12/8/17:  Shelby has completed PET 1 and is now in PET 2.  She was overwhelmed at the Council Bluffs Kennel Club show and really acted like the puppy she is.  It was good experience for her.

ZIVA

I have always wanted to add ‘fox red’ labradors to our kennel.  Fox red is a color and puppies are registered as YELLOW.  Ziva is very sweet and loves being pampered.  She has a beautiful head, and her color is gorgeous.  

We feel fortunate to have found Ziva as her breeder is Judy McCormick of Keepsake Labradors.  Judy has been breeding fox red labradors for 30 years and has been a key player in developing the fox red labrador as it is today.  

We visited with Judy about Ziva.  She asked us to verify Ziva’s tattoo on her tummy.  We found it and it reads 13K87.  13 represents the year she was born, K is for Keepsake, and 87 is the number of puppy Ziva was that year.   We spoke about our plans for breeding Ziva next May.  We will be breeding Ziva to one of Judy’s fox red studs.  We are very excited about this upcoming litter.

INTRODUCING PRIMROSE

Primrose came to us from a Minnesota kennel that was downsizing.  She has a wonderful personality and a gentleness about her that says “pet me please”.  She has been bred to Conrad for a January 2018 litter.  We believe this will be an outstanding litter!  Watch for pregnancy confirmation.
