Rocky is our handsome young boy from our Windy x Shiner litter.  He is as sweet as they come.  He has lovely angles, topline, correct coat  and the sweetest of faces.  Rocky was major pointed from the puppy classes and finished his title in style by going Best of Winner's both days at the SSLLRC fall Specialty at the tender age of 17 mos. 

Rocky is now a Gold level Grand Champion!

Rocky is back home with us now and standing at stud to approved Labrador ladies.

Rocky growing up
Rocky is pictured above being awarded Best of Opposite Sex at the prestigous 2012 Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac spring specialty show in Frederick, MD.  We were honored for this wonderful boy to be recognized in such wonderful competition.  In 2012, the Potomac LRC had an entry of just over 1,000 Labradors!

Rocky was beautifully handled to this win by his best buddy Erin Henlon-Hall

~ Critique from Judge Michael Woods; 2012 LRCP Spring Specialty ~

"Outstanding masculine dog without being coarse. Substance and power without being overdone. Masculine but kindly expression. Good head planes and strong muzzle. Excellent front and shoulders with a lovely neck, qualities that are so hard to find. Correct coat texture, although a little out of coat. Short powerful loins and muscled rear. Correct tail carriage. A pleasure to judge him."
