One point away from our conformation title!!

19 posts in this topic

My male lab "Koda", just got back from a weekend of 6 shows. He absolutely cleaned house. He ended up taking all six shows and one major. We are one point away from being titled and this was only his second weekend of showing. All six judges were amazed with Koda's conformation. He just turned two and needless to say I feel like the proudest parent in the world!! We are about one month away from starting our JH and my expectations only raise everyday with him!!

I can't wait to get him started with breeding. The dog is a very calm, tractible, and yet hard charging in the field. Plain and simple he is everything and more than I could ask for, this is all just icing on the cake!!

Just had to share our success over the weekend!!

Great looking Dog! Charlie sure has his act together as a breeder, doesn't he. Our Goldberry Lab, Tucker, is 3 now and he is a pheasant hunting machine! He looks alot like Kota's picture in your avatar. Continued good luck to both of you.

Great job ghost!

Now chase those field titles! You make him a SH or MH and you WILL have one of the premiere studs in the midwest! This is exactly what I have been promoting... looks, structure, coat, intelligence, tractibility and field ability... A LAB! What made them popular in the 1st place...

Go gettum!

Good Luck!

Ken

Thanks Ken! I really respect and appreciate your compliment! Koda I believe is the type of "lab" your describing. I don't know how I became so fortunate to come across a dog like him. He has every attribute I could look for in a lab. I will keep you guys up to date on our progress, he has the makings of being a huge asset to the lab breed!!

Wolfman, who was the sire of your dog?

Wolf- I am actually going to be breeding a female of mine to Nash, he is a gorgeous dog, great disposition. I have not seen Daisy personally but I have heard alot about her.

Bottom- definetly get in touch with me, I am planning on starting him shortly. I can shoot you a email to hang onto if you want.

Ghost, you can email me at vikeswinthebowl@hotmail.com

I have a ways to go yet, like I said she is only 7 mo

We will be starting JH the end of july or beginning of august depending if we are ready or not. My wife might get her into confirmation as well down the road. Breeding her also depends if all tests come back good which I pray will. This will be my first time breeding a dog so I have lots to learn.

I got one of goldberry's labs several years ago. I dont do the dog show thing, and his field trials are done with me and friends on the weekends chasing pheasants around. He is every thing i could want in a hunting dog. His picture used to be on goldberrys web site with a bunch of ducks we got when he was a year old.

Goldberry's does put out good dogs. Kev has a very impressive dog. You don't have to do the hunt tests or shows to have a great dog, that's not what I meant in this conversation, if people do them, it is to only help improve the lab breed and bring back the standards that made them so popular in the first place.

    • You have no idea....               Suck it up, buttercup...  
    • That was obviously his Republican side...
    • lambjm - keep at it. If you do, you stand a great chance of fishing for possibly decades to come.    Inspirational to me, and hopefully others, is our 85 year old neighbor in Hovland who finished up logging our land this past spring. He logs in a one man operation every day, except Sundays, and a nice day every now and again to fish with his wife.    He has been logging continually for 66 years.   Like clockwork he gets to the landing everyday by 8:30, takes a 15 min break at 10:30, a half hour lunch break at 12, and a 15 min break at 3 before quitting at 4:30. A few days last winter I was out on the land making firewood and clearing trails, and could barely keep up with his schedule. He plans to keep at it as long as he is able.    My wife and I saw him last winter, as we rounded the corner of our road, standing atop a 10' pile of aspen logs with a cant hook or axe in one hand, waving with the other. He appeared as a man less than half his age in terms of agility and stature.   Genetics are a key, but staying interested and active in an outdoor activity is very important to a long and healthy life.     
    • That is because he was fooled into believing in trickle down economics and the idea that cutting taxes in and of itself would solve the budget problem.   Some are still fooled today.
    • Starve the beast, only the beast got stuff on credit.   Reagan didn't seem to be concerned too much about debt.
    • We already know Uncle Bill's response though:  
    • That is a very nice Pimple spear!   They are hard to find. I bought a couple of them from Jerry Kelm. He said Pimple used spring steel from hay rake tines to make the spear tines.    I have not seen one in person with chromed or nickel finish like that, but there is a picture of one that looks exactly like yours on page 215 of  the book "Ice Fishing Spears" by Marcel Salive. I actually wonder if it is the same spear. I heard Mr. Salive was selling off some spears about 5 years ago.    Are you going to be our tomorrow? If so PM me and I will bring the book out to give you a look. TS and I are going to out in the morning.
