'Darcy' was the only bitch puppy born in the repeat breeding of Mabel to Eagle. We really wanted a black bitch to carry forward with and thank the stars, we got our wish. Darcy is a good sized girl with a lovely eye and headpiece. Her front and rear assembly are good, properly positioned and a very decent length of neck. She's a little longer in loin than ideal, however we don't consider that a major sin. She has a strong personality but actually is a quiet housedog. RETIRED. We decided after two litters combining 24 puppies AND we have two lovely daughters of hers, Darcy is pulled from our breeding program.

'Jane' is someone we hoped to find about 20 years ago. I saw her sire Mystic here in Canada as a class dog before he went onto a solid career in parts afar. We were lucky enough to be able to use him via frozen semen in early 2015 with Mabel. Both pick puppies, Jane and her brother Rune, have made the many years wait well worth it. Jane possess a proper coat, correct front, level topline and moves very smoothly with drive. She has a sweet expression and personality. Full littermate to Can Grand Ch Pirate's Seer For Dragonloft. 2pts to Grand CH. Fall 2019 litter planned.

She has a very bright, eager to please personality with a good strong retrieving drive.

She is really surpassing our estimate on the quality of Labrador we thought she would grow to be! Best of Breed winner in limited showing . RETIRED

Critiques
"This one reminds me so much of our yellows at home. She floated around the ring, lovely head and melting expression. Great proportion and balance. Both bitches are in excellent shape – a little bit of weight as you can expect from veterans but other than that, simply stunning!"- Gregg Lynch, Kellyn

"lovely yellow sweet feminine expression, clean neck and shoulders bone and feet, correct spring of rib, and otter tail moved well.-Rich Stafford, Farnfield

"This bitch is not to be overlooked. A beautiful yellow bitch with a stunning head. Her coat is in gorgeous condition. This girl was showy and asking for the win. Her go round and down and back were lovely. A very young at heart girl enjoying a return to the ring."-Colleen Doll, Songline
