I did this breeding because I really wanted, just for me, something
like my "big Jack", who was 10+ years old and a very special boy. I
knew Morgan might add the "power rear" and angles that Jack lacked (being an
old-type moderate Labrador), but couldn't count on getting the best of both
parents. Well, there he was! The distinctive headpiece from Jack
and his famous daddy, Tony, and super topline and tailset, but the overall
substance and rear improved from Morgan! With Morgan and
her son, Elmer, also being favorites of mine, I knew this was a puppy I
wanted to live with. And, now that his beloved parents, Jack and
Morgan, have passed on
, I am especially happy to have Buddy with me. I look
at this face, the eyes and wrinkled brow, and I see Jack all over again,
then sometimes I see Morgan.
Buddy is well balanced, loaded with confidence and personality, strong
retrieving instincts with a super nose and focus. And, he's a real
"lover boy" who has stolen my heart.
Both of Buddy's parents have produced wonderful
temperaments, successful service dogs and outstanding hunters; and
Buddy's littermate (Romeo) became a certified search and rescue dog at 2
years of age! Buddy should go on to produce fabulous
family companions, hunting dogs, service, therapy and search and rescue
dogs. He is named after my special friend, Buddy Voshell of
Broad Reach Labradors.
