Tess had her litter 4/6/06. She had 5 boys first, then 4 girls. All pups are healthy and choc. I'll post pictures of the Father soon. These should be a great litter of pups! Good hunting and looking parents. Tess is also a pointing lab. It's very cool to have a lab that's a great retriever hold rock steady points on pheasants and quail! I hope some of the pups have that same instinct, no guarantees.....
I'll keep adding pictures as I take them....

This is getting ridiculous. I'm just going to put pictures under days or this page will never load for my broadband challenged friends...... Click the date and get a page of pictures from that day, I've put my favorite picture from each day in the cell window - click on them for a larger version.......
