AT STUD TO APPROVED BITCHES
Breeders: Jennifer Mitchell & Barbara Gilchrist

OFA hips good, OFA elbows normal, Eyes CERF
EIC & CNM clear, Optigen carrier,
Lizzy only had 3 puppies in Ted's litter ... 3 HUGE but lovely puppies.
Barb took the pick show female, per our agreement. Her "Auggie", shows
promise, having taken RWB and Best Puppy at the Golden Gate specialty at
only 6 months. I kept co-own on this nice boy, but let him live with
the Hanchette family in La Cross, WI.
Ted was shown some as a youngster, enough for me to see his wonderful
movement ... and the happy, animated personality of his mama.
Unfortunately, due to some health problems in the family, he has not been
shown yet in maturity. Ted has a beautiful headpiece, lovely reach of
neck, solid topline and tailset right off the back. He is well
balanced with a good front assembly and matching rear. Pigment is
strong, good coat and nice golden color.
I am very proud to announce that Ted, with help from Tom, obtained his
Junior Hunt title
in July 2011! What a team!!!
Quote from Ted Hanchette
"Ted has a wonderful personality. Fun loving,
vocal with "bear-like" grunts when playing with us. Just an absolute
joy of a dog. Very strong dog with rippled muscles in hindquarters and
shoulders....probably from being hooked up to a harness for Skijoring
and "snow-shoejoring" with me on our hills. He is 80 pounds of pure
muscle. He has strong retriever drive and excellent water entry when
retrieving, just leaps with a burst into the water. Hoping to get his
junior hunt title this summer if all goes well on the home front here."
