Natalie is now at Welcome Home Labradors,

with Gina & Bryce Shervheim and their wonderful family in Minnesota.


I am SO pleased with this lovely puppy!  She is particularly special to me as she is a combination of my two old bitch lines; her daddy Gizmo going back to Emma's line, her mama Valerie going back to the old Molly line.  Thus her name "Special Blend".  

Natalie is a very well balanced puppy, correct angulation front and rear, strong topline, good bone and coat with nice golden tones, beautiful head and expression, excellent pigment and she moves like a dream!  She is sweet, patient, yet very spunky, retrieves at 9 weeks ... an outstanding total package!  She made the final cut in the big 6-9 months class at Winnebago specialty the very day she turned 6 months!  Then, without any further experience, she took 2nd in BBE at the TCLRC specialty and the following day supported entry at 2 years of age.  She has several Reserves including a major RWB from the BBE class and Best BBE in Breed.
