"Sylvia" was always into something, but dirty laundry was her favorite.  She was the most devoted dog I have ever had so losing her has left a big void.  She loved field  work, but often "worried" about situations or strangers.  Through persistence and determination we both got her Masters on one very proud day.  She passed away quietly at 16 1/2.  What an old girl she was!                                                                    Sylviaweb.jpg     Photo by Nancy Bass

Emmyweb                                   "Emmy " was a field/show cross who I enjoyed training and campaigning.  She began her field work as a baby and                                                                             finished her JH at the ripe old age of 10 months, her Senior and Master titles easily.  She was an excellent marker  and a very stylish retriever.  Emmy finished her Senior Hunter in May 2011 and her Master title in August 2012.                                                                                    Unfortunately she sustained an injury which forced me to retire her after finishing her Master Hunter title. Emmy  was a sweet, devoted, follow you anywhere type of girl, never demanding of anything.  She will be missed.

"Trudy" was sweet girl and a wonderful Mama.  She whelped and raised all her puppies without my help.  She loved puppies                                                                     to the point that she helped other Mamas, nursing and cleaning their puppies too.  She was a great tracking dog, earning all              Trudystanding                                                     three tracking titles and her Championship in five tests.  She earned her TD in her first tracking test at 13 months, then her TDX                                                                   at her first TDX test before she was 2 and her JH 5 months later in 4 straight tests.  After retiring from motherhood, we went                                                                  back to work, finishing her Senior Hunter title and then her VST and CT in only three tries.  She has left me with a                                                                          promising son & daughter plus two special granddaughters who all love tracking and field work as much as she did.  She                                                                        has been a joy and will truly be missed.

Tyler was such a sweet, handsome man who loved attention in the show ring and the field.                                                  He earned 12 AKC show points including one Major and his UKC Championship, shame                                                      on me for not finishing him. Ty produced beautiful puppies who are keeping me busy in the                                                  ring and fields.

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.

"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".

Dutch Hollow's SophistiCat (Spayed), WC 
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.
