No Tick X Kimber Litter

January 17, 2011

A year ago I researched stud dogs to breed my chocolate Labrador Retriever with.  I found a beautiful, hard-driving, athlete.  His name:  Ten Bears Road Trip QAA “Tick.”

My chocolate, Kimber should have come into season September 2010.  We waited and waited for her to come in.  Finally this past Friday, Kimber came in.  I called Anne Weaver to let her know the news.  Anne is married to Mike Judas, Tick’s owner.

At this time, I am in South Carolina with Kimber and Anne let me know that Mike is in Texas with Tick.  So, there will be no Tick X Kimber litter this cycle.  I am very disappointed.  There is just not enough time to make things happen without being rushed.  So we will plan another breeding with Tick next year.

I’ve been looking at another male here in South Carolina.  A Black Labrador Retriever.  I will post the info later as long as all goes well.

Blu trained with his litter mate, Honey Sunday at Busch Wildlife. If I can get it to load, I am going to add it to this blog! I think it’s only going to let me add photos. 😦

Blu went to Michigan this weekend to run in a hunt test for his AKC Jr. Title.  He passed on Saturday!  Today he passed his first AKC Sr. Test.  He had a 100 yard blind and honored.  He did a wonderful job.  One of the judges from Saturday’s test thanked my Trainer and Handler Mike Carosello for demonstrating such speed!

Blu has passed all of his hunt tests thus far without failure which includes UKC/HRC and AKC hunt tests.  He is 12 for 12.  Nothing drives this dog more than retrieving.  He eats, sleeps and breathes retrieving.

We are off in a couple of weeks to try for the next two legs of his Sr. Title.  Hopefully he will have it soon and then we will work on his HRCH Title this fall as well as his Master Title.

Blu’s father is HRCH  Maple Creeks Captain Morgan MH owned by Bill and Marcia Butikas.  You can view Morgan’s pedigree by clicking on the following link. Morgan Pedigree

Once Blu has all of his HRC/UKC and all of his AKC Titles, we will be offering him at stud.  People have already been inquiring about Blu but we have not yet had his hips, elbows and eyes tested.  He is only a year and a half old.  So, in time folks he will be ready!  He still has a lot of work yet to do and he is having a lot of fun doing it!

Blu and I hope to see you at the line.
