Our Girls

Introducing Honey and Lilli

These are our young females that we kept out of Kali’s final litter. They turn 2 in August and we will proceed with all clearances. For now, they are my movie night snugglebugs and keep me laughing with their playfulness.

 

Pinny

Pinny is our Star Momma and will be mated with our new sire Tuff.  She had 2 litters with Reveille–so beautiful and smart!!Pinny is from our first Kali/Bo mating in 2013, which produced such beautiful pups we repeated that mating 3 times. Bo is a Grand Champion son of CH Ghoststone’s Louie Downtown, a highly sought after bloodline. Pinny has a beautiful head and the nice leggy type we breed for, stands 22” tall at 68#. She lives with her own family in Montesano, WA who also own her big brother. Their ‘mom’ is a Veterinarian and ‘dad’ a hunter/trainer. Her personality is curious, playful, and smart—she definitely keeps life interesting! She is doing very well as a hunter and is a fast athlete.

Kali Kelani

Callie3Kali is top pick from our first mating of AM Can CH Timberline Big Ben SH RN “Ben” and Molly (see below). Don Ironside of Fawnhaven Labradors helped us choose her. Kali has grown to be everything we we hoped for—a solid athlete that can run behind us on long trail rides without tiring (but knows when to stay with us) with an amazing intelligence and personality.

Her drive to hunt and retrieve is superb. She has a great nose and won’t quit a search. She is fearless, to the point of treeing and holding a cougar January 2011 (bobcats too). Every one of her hunting brothers and sisters get high compliments from buddies and guides.

Kali is beautiful in every way. Her length of neck and strong shoulders are balanced by strong hindquarters. Her overall impression is that of a muscular build with power and fluid movement. Her head is blocky and broad, with a nice stop, set off by those gorgeous big eyes. She has a thick otter tail, carried naturally low. She is mellow and loving; her passion is to be close to her people and she is wonderful company when you just need a quiet friend to sit with. She is an intelligent, a quick learner, and stands approx. 24 1/2” tall and weighs 85#.

We have 32 dogs from our Ben and Molly cross, which gives us a strong track record and tons of information. No health problems, superior performance, fantastic family/ people/ hunting dogs. This was that elusive, golden cross of genetics.

The healthy and proud mama, Kali

Kali retired in 2016 after giving us 4 wonderful litters. Her pups are just as beautiful, intelligent, loving, and trainable as Kali and her Molly/Ben siblings proved to be. She is now the wise, solid rock Grandma, who loves on all puppies, no matter who the mom is.  She represents our standard for what we strive for in looks and brains.  All our females come from her!

Sweet Saddie Sunshine

Sitting-in-field--photo-shootOur Sweet Saddie has Kali’s strong build, only just a little bit more refined. Same muscular look, good bone, big expressive eyes, set off by her light, white tone coat color. Her personality is submissive and playful, eager to please, very gentle & tolerant with little children—a quiet, fun friend that I discover sitting beside me when I’m busy.  Her hunt drive is very strong—yet she is obedient to listen—just like her parents!  She stands 24 “ tall and weighs 78#

We’re sad to say Saddie had an emergency C-section with her first litter, and could not have more pups.  She is enjoying being an only dog with a loving retired couple. She loves the travel and stands ready at ‘shotgun’ on road trips. We co-own her only daughter, Sahara, who will have a litter in 2019

Molly Dolly Golden Sunrise

13m88x7vp2jkOur beautiful, loving Molly got us started in AKC Yellow Labs. She is a big strong girl, standing 24” tall, weighing in at 75#. She has a beautiful blocky head, large kind eyes, well-proportioned with good bones, has a strong hunt drive, yet is balanced by a very calm and mellow personality. Her priority in life is to be with her people, and she just plain loves everyone. She is OFA certified Good hips, Normal elbows, good hips and CERF clear eyes (current each year and still perfect at age 8).

She is the best and easiest breeding female imaginable—she mated and gave birth easily, never a problem. She raised fat and happy babies that had more than enough milk and tons of nurturing to keep them content and clean. Even right after delivery, Molly welcomed admirers, her pups learned to love contact with people of all ages.

Molly has raised 5 litters for us and is now retired. Her quality shines in every single pup. They are cherished for their gentle, mellow and loving personalities, their beauty, and their love of the hunt. Molly was mated with 3 different stud dogs, but her pups are amazingly consistent in look and temperament. That consistency is hard to find in breeding—and I repeat, is the utmost mark of quality.
