New Beginnings

Although it’s been a little while since the last update, good things just keep on happening! I do hope you are having a great summer so far, and that you are enjoying your special animals in your care.  Summer always seems to bring adjustments, change, new experiences, a greater level of care to be given with the heat, as well as a form of ‘crunch-time’ as we rush through, squeezing in every activity possible, and living life to it’s fullest.    Things continue to change and develop here at Good Lab Outfitters.  I continue to get more and more excited to actually get to break into the Labrador Show World in the not-so-far off future! As far as our breeding goes, there are two super nice yellow and black litters planned for breeding in the Fall, with chocolates litters to be bred next Spring. Stud prospects for these upcoming litters have been unofficially selected, yet continue to be researched and considered in order to provide the best puppies for our puppy owners and families.
Meanwhile!…. drum-roll please….. Lord willing, we now anxiously await 2 (maybe 3) special boys in July and possibly September. As we adjust our focus toward strictly English Labradors lines, I am so excited to await our new precious show boys that will be a huge blessing to the GLO program.  With these little ones, we will be blessed with bringing in great, proven Am/Can/Int Champions and BISS Champion bloodlines that hold numerous coveted championship titles from the great Labrador Retriever Club Potomac Specialty Show, the Eukanuba National Championship titles (go Zeus!:), Westminster participants, and many UKC, AKC, and Labrador Specialty Show Championship titles.  These labs include the infamous BISS CH Leisure Suit Larry JH WC (Dauber) and MBISS Am/Can CH Beechcroft’s Study in Black (Study) bloodlines in our black boy, and the amazing GCH Am/Can CH Gingerbred Celestial Thunder JH CGC (Zeus) and BIS Ch Chambrays Out Of The Ruff THD NFP NJP (Hogan) lines for our yellow boy. Depending on just how crazy, smitten, and ambitious I’m feeling as we move forward…. there is also a very special chocolate show boy by the beautiful Am/Can CH Venetian’s Copy That (Copy) x Dauber/Chambray bred lines to complete the Mighty English Trio as GLO’s headliners…. and foundation for a wonderful, hopefully successful, life experience ahead.
Each of these little guys come from some of the world’s most amazing Labradors in the history of the breed! Not only have they excelled greatly in the conformation show pen (which some very close yellow Zeus siblings are breaking some phenomenal show records right now through Chambray Labradors in Florida!!!), some have excelled greatly earning various field titles, working certificates, CGC certs, and have even proven to be fantastic Therapy Dogs, earning their certifications there as well. Calm, loving temperaments, easily teachable & trainable personalities and minds with proven championships and titles, good health, and natural beauty who are ready to be a blessing wherever they go, are all goals I aspire to as I forge ahead.  It is greatly important to me, as I continue to grow in pursuing my own passion for the Labrador breed, to provide the absolute best puppies possible for our Labrador families and owners.  A good lab quickly becomes an official member of the family, and that is something that lasts a lifetime…. or at least 12-15 years, hopefully. It is my aim to make that the best experience ever for our families. I have been so incredibly blessed and am deeply honored at the special breeders at Green Gables Farm and Chambray Labradors who have given me the opportunity to bring home these precious ones.  Great things lie ahead, and I am so excited about the adventures ahead over the next few years!  We will be busy, busy bees as we embark on new and exciting adventures. I truly believe God put these amazing labs in our lives as blessings in various ways…. It is my hope and prayer that through this journey, I will be able to provide and be a huge blessing to many others in the world through these little angels in fur.

Be blessed,Shana 🙂
