Out for a Late season hunt with Angler & Hunter Television

Tundra waiting on the birds. During setting up

We had a chance to get out with Cam Brownson of Angler & Hunter TV, It took all day before the birds finally started to move but in the end we harvested 10 geese and 6 ducks and hopefully got enough film for an episode.
It should air some time in May.

New Title for Star!

On November 29th Star earned her third tracking title, one of the hard ones, her Urban Tracking Dog or UTD. This involves tracking on variable surfaces, such as concrete, ashphalt, gravel or sand as well as grass. These areas tend to be more contaminated with more scents to sort through of other people, cars or dogs going over your track.

We are very proud of Star!
She is now HR B-Line's Supernova, CGN, CD, WCX, MH, TDX, UTD QAA

Its not all about the ribbons

We got an e-mail from an owner of one of our pups from our Belle/Tucker litter that will be turning 3 years in January. Robb bought Timber as a hunting companion and so far he has picked up 26 birds for him this fall. We love to hear these stories because that is what it is all about, breeding Labs to do what they were bred and love to do, bring home dinner :0)

Below is a picture of Timber.

We had a great time at the first ever Lab rescue fundraising event Labrapalooza. We did a field trial demonstration with our dogs Tundra and Star and answered training questions. Thanks to Joan of Lab rescue the event was a huge success. There was a leash free park with games the dogs could play. A customs agent did a demo with his dog searching our truck for pretend drugs. The was a cartoonist doing drawings of the dogs and a draw table and silent auction. The turn out was great and a good time was had by all but I think mostly the dogs :0)

Trip to the pond

Took the pups to a friend's pond this afternoon. They didn't get much swimming in, I think they found the water a bit cold but they had a blast eating the flowers. They turned 7 weeks today.
