Tealwood's Steampunk

Sire:  Tealwood Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Dam:  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 mama Addie!

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.
