In May of 2008, I took a trip to the West Coast of Florida to visit my friend PK Litchenberger . PK had a litter of lab puppies that were around 5 weeks old. I had no intention of adding a dog to my life but after being stalked by the blue collar male all weekend, I made the plunge. That blue collar male was Kona and he had decided I needed a dog .
Through the Lab forum, I met Anne Swindeman of WindyCanyon Labradors. I was having a hard time finding a Lab that I liked looks and working ability wise. Anne had just the Labs I wanted. After waiting 2 years for my favorite bitch of hers to be bred, I took a trip out to Washington state and Journey came home. A few months later, Kona sired a litter in Kentucky. I offered to take pick male up North to find a working/competition home. That dog was Ozzy and well, he never left.
Anne was gracious enough to give me full rights to Journey and in the Winter of 2015 I bred her to Kona. February of 2016, my first litter here at Triple Threat was born. It was an all yellow litter of 8. Journey was an incredible mom and I chose to keep a female. That female is Bowie
In the past years, both Journey and Ozzy attained their Master Hunter titles. Ozzy went on to become Qualified All Age and is now dabbling in the agility ring. Journey and Kona are retired from breeding. Bowie obtained her JH but due to an injury while at trainers, I was forced to retire her from competition. Bowie has now taken over the role of brood bitch and I am excited to see what she produces!
