AKC and CKC Registered

Copy is our beautiful chocolate boy sired by Roger. He is sweet, smart, and full of personality. Copy is an earnest retriever, with a swift entrance and enduring speed in the water as well. Conformation, bone, coat, tail set, and eye color are excellent; he is a full-bodied and well-muscled Labrador. In addition to outstanding conformation and movement, Copy is a total love. This boy is adorable inside and out!

Copy earned his GCH title on September 28, 2012 with a 4 point Select Dog placement under breeder judge, Judy Chambers, Ghostone Labradors! The GCH is the AKC’s Grand Champion title initiated in recent years, and which requires 3 [post American Champion title] majors and a total of 25 points. All of Copy’s GCH points except for one were majors! We accomplished this as an owner-handled endeavor and are happy to have achieved this title under a breeder judge at the Finger Lakes Kennel Club show supported by the Iroquois Labrador Retriever Club!

Copy finished his American Champion title with his 4th major on December 12, 2010 at Eastern Dog Club (Providence, RI) under judge Michael Faulkner! It was a beautiful finish for this spectacular chocolate boy with all his points being majors…3 of them at Specialties under breeder judges Jean-Louis Blais (Chablais), Manolo Queijeiro (Queijeiro) and Margaret Brown (Ramsayville)! Copy earned his Canadian Champion title in August 2010, and in April 2010 he won Open Chocolate at the Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac Specialty; the largest and most prestigious Labrador Specialty in the world! In 2009 he placed 2nd in this very competitive class! In 2007, Copy's sire [Roger] also went 2nd in Open Chocolate at the Potomac! Copy was handled by Karen Day for 2 incredible Specialty majors, as well as the Open Chocolate class win at Potomac 2010, and several other spectacular Open Chocolate class wins at Specialties…Thank you Karen!!!

In addition to Copy's American Kennel Club registration, Copy is registered with the Canadian Kennel Club.

Specialty – September 5, 2008
Open Chocolate Dogs, First Place
(Age: 19 Mos.)

VENETIAN’S COPY THAT
– Well-balanced chocolate.  I do like a chocolate with a hazel eye and this dog has a lovely eye colour and expressed intelligence. Clean, strong neck sitting on well placed shoulders and leading to a good top-line. Good depth of chest and well developed hind quarters and a super otter tail. Sufficient turn of stifle and well let down hocks. Neat feet. Good on the move.
