We're excited about trying this breeding, hoping that Mable inherited the chocolate recessive gene from her daddy (50% chance) or her mama (another 50% chance);  if so, we'll have blacks and chocolates; if not, the litter will be all black but all will carry the chocolate recessive for future breeding.  Either way, this should be an outstanding breeding for intelligence, strong retrieving instincts, and trainability, as both parents excel in these qualities.  Pups will have proper type, could be nice show prospects, but I'd almost bet my life on strong prospects for obedience and agility competition and AKC hunt tests!  Combined with nice calm, loving temperaments and a strong desire to please, we'll definitely have wonderful family companions.

 Major is the most intelligent Lab I've ever come across, intuitive, so eager to please, with very strong enthusiasm and drive for retrieving, good nose, etc.  He's champion pointed and I regret that I never got him out to get the two majors to finish.  He puts his intelligence and personality into virtually all his pups and has produced many exceptional hunters over the years, and the #1 drug detection dog in Arkansas.  Very dark (hershey) chocolate with beautiful dark eye, excellent movement.  Dam is a pretty, smaller female with good substance, nice angles, lots of rear, feminine head and expression, and a cute, loving, disposition.  "Mable" has great retrieving instincts and we rarely see her without a bone or ball  in her mouth!  I was very impressed with a pup from her first litter that I kept until 4+ months... very smart, cooperative, quick learner ... and the courage to take off swimming and retrieving with two older dogs at 8 weeks of age!  Mable goes back to the legendary BISS Amer, Can, Mex, 1978 World & Int'l Ch. Franklin's Golden Mandigo, CD, WCX four times in six generations and Major goes back to him twice in six generations, so we're concentrating some very nice blood.

Puppies will be available to approved show and/or pet homes and select breeders. Currently taking deposits.  If interested, please e-mail inquiry, including a synopsis of what type of puppy you are looking for, your lifestyle, facilities and purpose and plans for acquiring a dog, or call 715-643-7313.

All puppies guaranteed, well socialized, vaccinated, de-wormed, dew claws removed.


Mable whelped six BIG puppies the evening of May 1, 2002, 3 males and 3 females ... ranging in size from 17 to 22 ounces!  We both worked hard for these puppies, Mable pushing and me pulling, but all were strong and are doing fine.  Unfortunately, no chocolates, but with only six puppies, still can't rule out the possibility of her having the chocolate recessive.
