Willow - Retired- AKC CH , BOB, Multi BOB Puppy, BOB Puppy Breeder Showcase, BIS BBE INTERNATIONAL CH, UKC CH Willow is pick of her litter! At 3.5 mos Willow had already earned her International Champion title, 2-Best in Shows ( regular and Bred by Exhibitor), Group 1, 2-Best of Breeds. At 10 mos, Willow starting showing at AKC shows. What a show girl. Even before turning a year old she has earned a BOW and 2 WB, several BOB Puppy, Group 1 and 4 Puppy. An even bigger honor was her BOB Puppy and Group 3 Puppy in the 2013 Purina Breeder Showcase....where all the breeders show their BEST pups! She has a big world outlook which is great for the showring . She has charisma galore and takes over where ever she goes. Willow had earned all her points, with the exception of 1 major when we decided it was the right time for her to become a Mommy. We bred her and she had a lovely litter of 9 babies. She took nearly a year off from the show circuit to recover from mommyhood. In June 2016, I decided to enter Willow in the Tampa shows! Bada bing, bada ba.....Willow earned that last big win, called a 'major' and finished her AKC CHAMPIONSHIP!
Left is Willow Oct 27, 2012 at 3.5 months. She competed in the age group 3 to 18 months. I swear she is not as big as she looks in this pic. She's my baby. I want her to stay little forever!!!
One of the judges commented that her movement is "THE BEST EVER ! " Woo Hoo!!!!!!!

Fiji - Chocolate -Fiji came to me from a good friend's kennel. She was the pick of the litter. She has grown to be such an amazingly beautiful girl. Soft, loving eyes, big blocky head, short wide snout, super thick coat and tail, and the gentlest, easy going, laid back personality. She's a big girl, nearly 90 lbs. She LOVES all the puppies and is such a great Mommy.
Katrina (Trina) Yellow - Trina came to me from my good friend's kennel. She was the pick of her litter, and has a pedigree that is very special to her breeders.....so special that Trina's next litter will be evaluated with big plans for the future of that lineage! Trina has been shown in both the US and Mexico, and even has points toward her Mexican championship! Her pups are SPECTACULAR, just like her! Her sire is a CHAMPION in the United States, Mexico, Columbia and Brazil!
Bugatti (Gatti) - Chocolate -AKC CH SHADYBRY'S NEED FOR SPEED. Bugatti's (Gatti) show career was incredible. 4 WINS (including a major) in her 1st 4 shows! Bugatti finished with 3 majors! That is an INCREDIBLE accomplishment for a chocolate, who are usually the underdogs in the conformation ring. Gatti is Java's daughter, just passed OFAs , GENETIC, EYE & HEART tests now complete. Bugatti is a very athletic girl. I need to start taking her to agility training. She'd be an instant success! She can hop over my 5 foot fence without hesitation. She absolutely loves squeaky toys! She wants to snuggle right up next to me where ever I happen to sit or lay.....especially on top of all my pillows!
Royce - Black / will also produce Chocolate -Royce is Java's daughter, just passed OFAs, GENETIC & EYE & HEART tests now complete. Royce is a eager to please, has an easy going temperament, soulful spirit. She has the most beautiful dark amber eyes. They just take your breath away when you look into them. Royce is just happy to be near you without invading your 'personal space'.
Lacey - Black / will also produce Yellow - Lacey came from my friend in Mexico. Lacey has passed her OFA & genetic tests. She is my most kissy dog, always wanting to groom the other dogs and me. Her favorite trick is to help me every day by bringing me the dog bowls after everyone finishes eating. She's so funny, she'll stand next to my 'slow' eaters (if there is such a thing in Labradors) and wait for them to walk away from their bowl, then she'll pick it up and bring it to me, saving me from bending sown to pick it up. She has also taught a few other of my dogs to do this now too.
