Sire: Tealwood Hit Me With Your Best Shot
Tealwood Add A Step To The Strutt
Yellow female born October 15, 2014
Optigen Normal by parentage
Steamer carries on
the strong focus, trainability and working instincts of both her
parents, as well as their loving temperaments. But, she also
displays mannerisms and structure of her granddaddy Stanley. She
cocks her head back and forth when talked to, just like he did.
Stanley came from the respected bloodlines of Hyspire and Ghoststone
Labradors; sadly, he died from a freak injury at his co-owners kennel,
and I wanted to honor him by naming this puppy after him. I used
to call him "Stanley Steamer".
"Steampunk" refers to the correct relationship of form to function ...
something we strive for in our breeding program, as it results in
soundness. Steamer is well balanced with nice angulation front and
rear, a strong topline, good tailset, good coat, outstanding pigment and
a lovely expression. She became an excellent little retriever by 9
weeks of age, almost equaling the obsessive retrieving instincts of her
I am very happy to
have Steamer here to carry on the bloodlines of her mama Addie, her
granddaddy Stanley (Hyspie and Ghoststone lines), and one of my
foundation lines through her daddy Buddy and her grandma Valerie.
