Chip And Belle Puppies!

Pretty litter of blacks and chocolates with lots of retrieving desire throughout their pedigree.

The father is Justamere Chocolate Chip and the mother is Justamere Liberty Bell.

I was cleaning house – having to move ribbons around to dust – and got reminiscing about everything Arwen has accomplished. I’m so proud of my girl! In between having three litters of beautiful puppies, she finished her Companion Dog obedience title; Junior and Senior Hunter field titles; Hunting Retriever and Hunting Retriever Champion field titles; Rally Novice, Rally Advanced, and Rally Excellent titles; a Canine Good Citizen Award and a Conformation Certificate.

Yes, we still have more to do – finish her Master Hunter title, earn at least one Tracking title, and she’s even dabbling in Agility. But even more important than all the initials around her name – she’s a champion snuggler!

Boomer’s first dog show

What a trooper! Boomer competed in the puppy class at his first dogs show and took all the noise and dogs and even a pigeon in the ring in stride.

Watch for Boomer and his sister, Ouija, in more dog shows soon.

We’re so proud of our “O” litter! So far they’re everything we’ve been breeding toward – beautiful heads, sweet expressions, balanced angles, strong toplines AND retrieving desire!

Ouija – pronounced WeeGee – was named for that supernatural board game from long ago where the players placed their fingers on a pointer and asked a question, hoping for an answer from beyond.

Here she is at 7 weeks with fellow breeder Linda Ciancio of Brooks Labradors. Linda’s comments were “thick coat, pretty face, dark eyes, nice lips and skull width, good bite, good angles and upper arm, good turn of stifle and thigh width, good depth thru chest and loin.”

But Ouija is more than a pretty face! Here she is practicing her retrieving.


We also kept Boomer – short for Justamere Ordnance.

Linda’s comments about him were “good bite, good head, balanced and really nice, has more leg, short back, dense coat.” She also said that he reminds her of his grandfather, CH Tabatha’s Drifter at Dickendall JH.

Here’s Boomer at 7 weeks:


And he retrieves too!


Watch for these youngsters in all sorts of venues!

Chip Earns 12th Title!

Although a little belated, I want to give Chip a pat on the head via the Internet for completing 12 titles – obedience, rally, tracking and field.

He’s also working on some basic agility – I just need to work on keeping up with him.

Way to go Chip!
