From 14 months, 9.5 months and 8 months.....


To a baby at 12 weeks.

Louie is a big goofball; gentle and kind.  He thinks he is a lapdog, yet is completely unaware of his bulk!
  Louie captured my eye at 4 weeks, and has captivated me ever since.  He's done very, very well in limited showing.
Louie is named after my first heart-dog, Lobuff Nycoma's Moonshadow JH CDX CGC TDI, whom I lost to
kidney failure when Louie was just two months old.  He is a lovable character like Zachary, hence his namesake.

Louie loves to retrieve and has incredible drive and power.  His favorite things to do include yanking up trees and shrubs by their roots, carrying around rocks, sitting up to beg by himself while I work in my office, and enticing you to throw ANYTHING for him (and I mean anything!!)  He is affectionately known as Lou, Lou-Lou, Louie, and when I'm serious (and he's in some trouble), "Louis".

1st Place 12-18 Month Regular Class, Ms. Margaret Brown, Ramsayville Labradors
1st Place 15-18 Month Sweepstakes, Ms. Margaret Wilson, Shadowglen Labradors


I am humbled by the lovely and kind words that both Margaret Wilson and Margaret Brown shared in their critiques of Louie at the 2007 Potomac Specialty:

1st Place 12-18 Month Regular Class, Ms. Margaret Brown, Ramsayville Labradors

"This young dog has an excellent front assembly with good depth of brisket and well laid shoulders, strong neck of correct length, slight arch giving a continual line from neck into strong firm topline, kind masculine head with intelligent expression, good length of rib which allowed him to move unrestricted, well developed quarters with moderate angulation at the stifle, nothing is exaggerated and he has such lovely balance from nose to tail, superb coat and well clothed tail, reminded me very much of my own Chevalier."

1st Place 15-18 Month Sweepstakes, Ms. Margaret Wilson, Shadowglen Labradors

"Stunning black boy. Well put together with a beautiful front and rear. Moved well with nice animation. Happy dog in tune with his handler. Beautiful head and expression. Well let down hocks, good bone and neat feet. Very promising future."

THANK YOU FOR THESE LOVELY WORDS!!

2006 Pawcatuck River Labrador Retriever Club
Specialty Best of Winners, Winners Dog, Best Puppy
Judge: Dr. Michael Woods, Waterdog Labradors

"Young dog that exuded quality and potential; correct outline; lovely head and expression that is so difficult to find; wonderful neck and shoulders; strong topline and short coupled; excellent coat texture with correct otter tail coming off the topline.  Good leg and bone under him. Showed very well on this day and moved soundly with puppy exuberance. I obviously thought him an outstanding young dog that
exemplified type and awarded him WD and BOW."
