Danjacs Black Magic Woman CD WC CGC TDI October 31, 1999 - March 8, 2010 (Croftsway Gist A Gigolo X Rozzays Slow Dance) PEDIGREE The wonderful girl who started it all. I will never find the words to express how much this dog has meant to me. My life was set out on a course I had never expected the day she entered it. My first obedience titled dog was on her way and progressing nicely in her CDX training. Unfortunately, after she received her CD her knee blew out and from that day on it was just one thing after another. She retired early. One of the sweetest dogs I have ever known or owned. The day we lost her, a small part of me left with her and once again she changed my life. This time upon leaving.
U-AGI GRCH Endeavor Cinderbay Stargazer CD RA NJP WC CGC TDI (INT/LUX/NETH/AM.CH. Raintree Slippery When Wet JH X Can CH, SHR, U-AGI, U-CD, GRCH Lubberline Endeavor Binnacle CD, JH, NA, WC, CGC) March 17, 2005 - July 6, 2013 Optigen Normal/Clear (by parentage) Hips OFA Good Elbows OFA Normal Heart - Normal DDC EIC - Effected (never had a collapse) PEDIGREE As special as Cinder was to me, I was not prepared for the grip that Miss Lily would have on my heart. Of all our dogs, past and present, we spent more time training, trialing, and traveling than any of them. Lily was as smart as they come. She was also as stubborn as they can get. This made training and competing both a challenge and extremely rewarding. We were still actively training and competing in agility and Veteran conformation when in June of 2013 she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She was giving high doses of prednisone to take down the swelling and we considered further diagnostics, but the tumor grew so quickly and we lost her on July 6th of 2013. This was a devastating time for me and I miss her and her naughty antics every day. I was not prepared for how her loss would impact my life and I am not ashamed to say it took me almost a year to work through the depression. She was such a great dog and we lost her way too early. Still so full of life and energy. We miss you Miss Lil-Butt. Lily came to us from Endeavor Labradors. In 2017 I finally had another portrait done by by Victoria Peterson Laird. This beautiful photo graces the wall in our living room.

UWP U-GRCH Shadowmyst Dare To Dream WC CGC (CH. Janrod's Chasing A Dream CGC TT X Shadowmyst Daystar Dream CGC) February 5th 2003 - May 27th, 2015 PEDIGREE Color: Black (y) - Hips: OFA LR148891G24M-PI - Elbows: OFA LR25681M24-PI Cardiac: OFA LR-CA1351/19M/C-PI Eyes: ACVO Yearly - OptiGen prcd-PRA Tested: Normal/Clear Breeder/Co-owner Julie Reeves (Shadowmyst Labradors) Loyal. Loving. Comical. A few words to describe Gryphon. He was my first conformation dog and he taught me that life is too short to take things seriously. He had a blast in the ring and he made me enjoy myself out there. Living in the moment even if it meant not knowing what the heck he would do next! From bear-hugging the judge, dancing around on happy feet and never standing still for more than half a second, eating grass during his entire agility run, stealing the agility cones during class and running the entire course with it in his mouth, or trying to steal the earrings out of a judge's ears while nibbling on them. His antics were never-ending! I still get the biggest smile thinking of our adventures.
URO3 Endeavor Cinderbay She's Got Rhythm BN RN CGC TDI WC (BISS Grand CH. Sureshot HySpire Impressive WC X CAN CH UWP SHR UAGI UCD GRCH Lubberline Endeavor Binnacle CD JH NA RN WC CGC TDI) 2/09/07 - 11/15/18 Full Dentition/OFA Hips-Good /OFA Elbows-Normal/Optigen Normal by Parentage/CERF Yearly/EIC Clear Yellow (Yy) does not carry chocolate PEDIGREE I first met Rhumba at just three days old and fell instantly in love. She has the most amazing temperament and loves everyone she meets. She is a Labrador in every way. A true testament to the reason I fell in love with this breed. Temperament. Temperament. Temperament. Nothing bothers this dog. Roo, as she is called around here, is the second Lab from my good friend, Jeanine Asch, of Endeavor Labradors.
Reading dog, Rally Obedience "Star" and an acting role (see below)! In 2011 she began a four-year journey in the Therapy Dogs International Tail Waggin' Tudor program at the Petoskey District Library. She retired from the program in 2015 when we moved from the area. She also returned to the obedience ring that year and finished her AKC Beginner Novice and UKC Rally titles. It is with great sadness that we announce we lost our beloved Rhumba-Roo on November 15, 2018. A once in a lifetime dog who will be missed by many. SHOW HIGHLIGHTS 2018 High Five Canine Club 4/28/2018 At 11 years old Rhumba finished her United Rally Obedience 3 Title with a score of 99! It was a bittersweet moment for me but I could not be prouder of her. Happy Official Retirement
2017 High Five Canine Club 4/23/17 On Sunday Rhumba did me very proud and earned 2 legs toward her RO3 with scores of 91 and 97. 4/22/17 Rhumba earned her URO2 title on Saturday with scores of 89 and 92. Placing 4th and 3rd. Very proud of our "retired" girl!! Ten years of age and she still loves to please.
2016 High Five Canine Club Rhumba earned her UKC Rally Obedience 1 (scores 95, 96 & 96) title and one let toward her URO2. Along with her one URO2 leg she also earned a 2nd place with a score of 98.
GTKC 2015 Rhumba earned her Beginner Novice title in three straight shows with scores of 196, 192 & 193. She placed first each show and was also awarded Highest Scoring Dog in Beginner Novice in all three shows.
In December of 2013 our Rhumba-Roo starred as Sandy in the musical Annie at our local theatre. She spent a month in rehearsals and did an outstanding job for all of her scenes for 7 nights of shows. After night after night of practice she began to understand the musical cues that preceded her parts and she would get restless and whine. I found this very entertaining. We both enjoyed the experience. She enjoyed the children more than anything.
