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."
