It is with the heaviest of hearts we lost our beautiful boy suddenly - can't bring myself to change his profile in any other way.


Our beautiful boy Charlie has proven himself in so many ways. A super showman who gives 110% every time. I do little on the end of the lead as he is always standing 4 square by himself and moving so truly .... covering the ground with such a steady even gait for as long as he is asked to.
He is producing just super puppies to both line bred and out cross bitches. True to type, sound and super temperaments.... and they look good too! Age in group and show winners in both Australia and New Zealand.
And most importantly he is a super boy at home... full of fun!

HIGHLIGHTS

Charlie winning BEST IN SHOW at the 2014 Labrador Nationals! This dog is on fire!

2014 Labrador National QLD
JUDGE: Mr Gary Johnson (UK) -Cremino Labradors

2 year old black in sparkling form, loved everything about him. So typical of the breed with a superb clean balanced outline. Liked his head which just needs to broaden with age, but shows a gentle kind masculine expression. Super reach of neck which flows into a well laid back shoulder and correct length and return of upper arm. Body well developed with the correct length of leg, and not carrying any excess weight. Great topline and strong over the loins, well set on tail, clothed all round to show an otter tail. Excellent well muscled quarters with defined second thigh. Stands on strong well rounded bone with the best of feet. Good hocks which he used well to drive round the ring. His fit condition showed in his outstanding movement, just a joy to watch. A dog with bags of presence that will only get better with maturity. I wish we could have more dogs like this in the UK. Very pleased to award him the CC and later on BIS.


Charlie winning DOG CH & BEST OPPOSITE IN SHOW at the LRCQ 50th Anniversary Show What a weekend!

Judge: Mrs Dale Elliot (Uk) - Lyndham Labradors

My star of the day gorgeous black who caught my eye immediately for his overall balance. Excellent front angulation balanced by a well muscled rear. The best of heads, masculine but with a soft expression. Lovely reach of neck into well laid shoulders, level topline and tail straight off the back. Carrying a good double coat and delivering sound true movement. A young dog, he still has more to come, but handled so well to show his attributes to best advantage. My Best Dog on the day and such a shame his mind was on the ladies in the challenge for BIS. I just loved him! BOS In Show

Australia Day International - Puppy in Show - Dr Michael Woods (Canada) Breeder/Judge
A lovely, young , black male. Correct outline, with balance through. Outstanding neck and shoulders with legs set well under him and plenty of forechest. Very pleasing head with good eyes and gentle expression; nice planes and strong muzzle. Coat of correct texture with a nice otter tail. Short coupled with a strong topline. Very nice now and has plenty of bone and substance to grow on.
Should have an outstanding future.

He is a character who makes me laugh out loud. Super free movement, covering the ground with ease. Just love him!
