better known as Blade. His sire is FTCH Leadburn Viceroy and his Mother is our May- Jakoranda Mango. He was born on the 20th Jan 2010 one of a litter of 9. He is a very handsome dog. Easy to say and quick to learn.I have had chance to sell him more than once in the last few months but as I am thinking of having a go at trialling myself Anna says I wouldn't forgive myself if I sold him and he did well. More over I guess she wouldn't either me too. We have just got his hips scores back at a very respectable 2/3. His eyes tested clear on all 5 counts. His Optigen test for PRA came back clear too. We are now offering his services as a stud dog.

We have had 4 of our Labradors Optigen tested. Yesterday we heard they are PRA clear so we are very pleased. This is Boris,Finn,Tex and Blade. 2 yellow dogs and 2 black dogs. The two younger ones have been to get their eyes tested today along with their sisters-Twiglet No 1 ,Twiggy No 2 and they all passed. On Friday, Tex and Blade who had their eye tested before and passed- go for their hip scores so it will be fingers crossed until the results are back. No doubt someone will come up with another test that has to be done. Boris and Tex are for sale should someone want a young dog.They are both yellow and there sire is FTCH Leadburn Viceroy. The Twig girls are also for sale . They are black and again their Sire is FTCH Leadburn Viceroy. Please ring for further details
Weighing in time was what we used to do. When I was riding horses at the point-to-points that was 30 years ago.The season has begun the other week with a meeting at Easterbys near Malton. Now the nearest thing I get to weighing in is seeing how much the pups weigh. This litter has really come on so quickly. We were interested to see what they weighed. 7 pups and they range from just under 3 lbs to 4 1/4. It is the fox red dog that weighs the most. This is not surprising as he was a fair size when he was born and has remain the biggest ever since.Also he was not for sitting in a bowl for long . The girls were a little better behaved.
