A Redsky Puppy's First Retrieve


Chance with his trophies



"Chance", O.T.Ch., Ch. Redsky's Dynamic Duke Am. C.D.X. in 1976 when he was the top Lab in Obed. in Canada and when he finished his C.D., C.D.X., and U.D. in under six months a feat repeated in 1996 by his great-great granddaughter, O.T.Ch. and Ch. Redsky's Daughter of DeeVa, W.C.

Sky and her trophies





"O.T.Ch. Nikah's Colour the Sky Red", 1980 - 1996 top Labrador Retriever in Obedience in Canada in 1986. Sky was Chance's daughter and DeeVa's grandmother and like Chance before her will always be greatly missed!

"DeeVa", O.T. Ch., Ch. Redsky's Divine Designate, W.C.X.

being awarded the covetted black and white, High in Trial Rosette offered by CKC to celebrate their 100th Anniversary in 1988 by respected obedience judge and friend, Betty McHugh.



"T.F" O.T.Ch., Ch. Redsky's Daughter of DeeVa W.C.

with her High in Trial Rosettes, won in Saskatoon in 1996. She earned her C.D., C.D.X., and U.D. in under six months, just like her great-great grandfather did.  We are also proud of the fact that, to our knowledge, T.F. is the only dog to get a U.D. degree with using an auditory stimulus only on the directed jump exercise.  I gave her no visual signal to the correct jump, simply said, bar or high.

I don't have many show pictures on my
website because I basically disagree with the concept of breeding based
on show wins since the four most important things about a dog are not
evident to a show judge:

  1. his temperament (a lot of shyness and aggression are masked
    by food focus, excellent handling, and training),
  2. his retrieve drive, and either his
  3. phenotype or
  4. genotype for genetic disorders such as hip and elbow dysplasia,
    eye problems such as P.R.A. and R.D, heart problems like Tricuspid
    Valvular Dysplasia, epilepsy, allergies, cruciate ligament weakness.

Only when temperament testing, obedience degrees, field degrees,
and genetic clearances are required before the awarding of championship
points and the practice of awarding championship points to puppies
is terminated is there some hope of show wins having some relevance
to the quality of the dog. I show my dogs only to finish their championships
since it is the only quality control system available to us relative to the
conformation of our dogs. If there was anything else available,
i.e. breed wardens, as they have in Germany, I think it would be
preferable to showing dogs.

My 1988 DREAM Litter!!

DeeVa's 1st litter when she was bred back to her grandfather,
Ch. Shadowvale's Just Reward, an Adjoco Justice son.
Ch. Redsky's Dream of Designation "Splatt", (Damon's Mum), her sister,
Redsky's Dream of Divinity "Tasha" and brother Redsky's Dream of Diligence
"Sandy" all produced wonderfully for me.
This picture has been my business card since 1988.
