Brandhams Labradors have had some changes!
August this year I married Mark Hunter and all our Labradors are now jointly owned. The careful hobby breeding of our Labradors in our small kennel will continue to breed Labradors for type and temperament, to improve our lines further.
It is good to have someone to share the dog walking and poop scooping with!
We aim to bring out some youngsters next year in the show ring. Our kennel concentrates on chocolates and black. Joe (Brandhams Quickstep) our chocolate stud dog is lightly used to approved bitches (hips 4 : 4).
Mark is now showing Lily his young chocolate girl (Brandhams Bohemian Rapsody, hips 3 : 6) after some home taught ringcraft for them both! We were thrilled and amazed at her first show when they won ‘best chocolate in show’ at Midland Counties Labrador Retriever Club open show.
Rosie is retiring and leaving us to live in a family home and will be ‘Ben’s dog. Ben is very excited to have her and has plans to train her as the best Labrador ever! She is Lily’s mum and has produced some wonderful puppies for us in the past when mated to Joe.
Poppy (Brandhams Me And My Girl) has now been retired having her last litter on March 2nd and is going to be spoilt living with Sylvia, she will now see Rosie again as Sylvia is Grandma to Ben who had Rosie last year. Poppy has bred us some excellent puppies over the years and has developed the Brandhams line as it is today. We are hoping to have a Poppy granddaughter due to be born later in March from our friends Mr and Mrs Cairns (Pendoric).
It is now up to our two younger bitches to improve our very small kennel further. Lily (Brandhams Bohemian Rapsody) and Molly (Potterspiney Skywalker).
We still of course have our wonderful Joe living with us (Brandhams Quickstep). This dog is such a gentle soul and so easy to live with and has produced some very nice puppies, including our Molly.
We both send our thanks to Jack for his patience continually updating our web pages.
We now have our ‘poppy’ granddaughter living with us
‘Macy’ Pendorric Star Spirit at Brandhams from Reba and Alex. She is growing on well and looks a very promising young lady. Hips and eyes will be determined later in march.
Next year it is planned to mate her to our dear gentle Joe.
We always aim to continue to improve our breed in our small kennel.
We are very proud of the lovely labs we have bred over the last few years and treasure the friends we have made in the Labrador world.
Alison and Mark Hunter
