We bred Pine Acre's Powder Keg MH CC (an FC AFC River Oaks Way-Da-Go Rocky bitch) to NFC AFC Storm's Riptide Star.  Powder is an AKC titled Master Hunter and qualified at the Labrador Retriever Club's first Conformation Certificate (CC) event.   Powder qualified for and ran the 1999 Master National at just three years old.  She is an intelligent, tractable, great marker, possesses a great working attitude and is a pleasure to train.  She is a house dog and personal gun dog and her intensity has to be seen to be appreciated.  She is 100% Amateur trained, weighs  67 pounds, is OFA Good and has annually CERFed Normal, with no known health problems.

This is Powder's second breeding.   Her previous pups from FC AFC Way-Da-Go Soul Man turned one in November 1999 and are looking very nice.  Click here to see photos of pups from this litter.

Rascal's water entry!
Powder is chocolate factored, Rascal is chocolate, and we were blessed with ten healthy puppies--six chocolate and four black.  The black puppies are chocolate factored.  All  pups CERFed normal on 4/5/00, dewclaws have been removed, were given a clean bill of health by our vet, will be introduced to birds, are well socialized, and come with a written health warranty.  Contact us for more information or to make a reservation.  Puppies are sold on a first come first served basis, but preferences are given to working homes.   The breeding took place December 21, and whelping occurred February 24.  Puppies will be ready to go to their new homes around April 20, 2000.

These are working dogs bred to produce working puppies.
