Winterset Jo's Secret Admirer,TD, CD, WC "Addy" was our foundation bitch whose good health records have proven invaluable. She lived 14 1/2 years and was never demanding or self-absorbed. Her love of life and sense of humor will always be remembered. Her loss will be especially felt when we have new babies as she absolutely loved them. Rest well, old girl, you gave me everything I have.

She excels in movement, has an excellent nose and a strong retrieving desire. She earned many Specialty placements throughout her conformation career. She has raised two litters of pretty puppies who are doing well in various venues. She has come out of retirement to track and is doing well in advanced tracking work. She is a fun, versatile girl very focused on the task at hand, which these days is a lot of sleeping.

"Kitty" was a feminine bitch with lots of retrieving drive and working ability. She was pointed in the breed ring and received  several Specialty placements including Best Bred By at the 2003 Shawnee Mission LRC show under Jens Eric Sonderup of Denmark. She was an excellent producer giving us many talented puppies who earned her the first Versatile Producer of Merit Award given to her by the National Labrador Retriever Club.   She was very special and is dearly missed.

"Peaches", born on Friday the 13th, had a rough start as the only surviving puppy in her litter. She was my special soulmate with a strong desire to please; finished her CD with a High Lab in Trial award. She loved to track and did so with great focus and determination.  She was a happy, devoted woman who taught me a ton.  Miss you "Peachy".

Whelped 12/02/02

"Sophie" is a sweet remake of her mother. She had double knee surgery as a young girl and then wound herself around Stu's finger. She became Queen of her domain and rulled with the eye, never more. She found other work as she was above all the silly games her lowly relatives played. These jobs included estate surveillance (no cats or squirrels allowed), bed warmer, dish washer, truck navigator, leader of the "walk in the woods" pack, food taste tester and puppy monitor. With her passing she has left a huge void as no one carries the same air of entitlement and priviledge that Sophia did. What royalty she possessed.
