Champion Labrador

CH Hemlock’s Red Sapphire CGC CDX JH WCI


 1995 – 2005

Ruby was my companion, my first show dog and above all my friend. She greeted life with an enthusiasm that was contagious. She loved people and other animals of all species, especially babies whether they be children, puppies or kittens. She adored the breed ring and field work and just being a dog. I feel so fortunate to have had her in my life.

Canterbury Sparkling Diamond JH CD CGC


2002 – 2005

 Sparkle was a dog trainer’s dream. My dog of a life time, her willingness to do anything I asked and her tremendous athletic ability to follow through were unparalleled.

She loved to work, whether it was obedience, field or agility, and was truly bonded to me through that time together.
