Goodbye dear friend.
We'll always remember you as the epitome of
what a labrador should be.
On May 15th, 2001, Mac celebrated his 12th birthday.
We had a group swim in the pond with all his kennelmates, his
kids and grandkids. We celebrated Mac's vigorous health at this
age by watching him do water retrieves, butt-tuck around the
field, and bound into the air after the stick. We thought about all
the nice dogs he has produced in the past, all his grandkids and
great-grandkids. We relished his son Echo's Group 4 and Started
Retriever titles both won just last month, his daughter Risky's
upcoming litter and his 8 week old grandkids who enjoyed a swim
with him.
But, most of all, we celebrated the fact that he continues to
produce fine Labrador Retrievers.
On his 12th birthday, Mac was the proud sire of 7 beautiful 9 week
old puppies and we had just seen 2 of his beautiful 4 month old
daughters. And, to top it all off, we saw the ultrasound of a puppy
from his upcoming litter with English Import, Lyndhurst Jasmine.
Aat age 13, he continued to sire beautiful litters. One of his last
litters in May, 2002 was a litter of 12.

Mac is a one of several generations of Specialty winners; his sire, 'Ditto', and one of
his sons, Ch. Blackdux Knight Moves JH, WC (Kain) are both specialty winners. Kain
has done exceptionally well in the show ring, having ranked in the top ten after
winning BOB at the Potomac Specialty. Mac exemplifies the temperament, loyalty
and working ability of the Labrador Retriever. He is a kind and gentle soul with tons
of great attitude. Mac completed his CD title in Feb. of 1999 at the age of 9 1/2. At
age 9 1/2, Mac went Best Opposite Veteran in Sweeps and 2nd place in Regular
Veterans at the 1998 Labrador Retriever Club National. A repeat performance at the
'99 National gave him 2nd again in regular Veterans and 1st in Sweeps.
Mac produced many outstanding kids. Check out his kids, Echo and Risky. His son,
Shadowmyst Knight Spirit, (Echo) also took 1st in his Sweeps class at the '98
National and made the cut for Best in Sweeps! Like father, like son!
