Storm’s Ahead Lightnings Last Striker, “Striker”, was a keeper from our last breeding of a long-standing great pair. Striker is the most intense dog I have encountered; he Is an incredible athlete with 2 main speeds -fast and warp speed fast and then can halt and calmly snuggle on my lap. He is a quick learner and always eager to please. Whether on land or water Striker makes his presence known, he will retrieve through, over or under anything in the path to his bird or bumper. Striker is an outstanding upland hunting dog and a determined waterfowl retriever. Striker will be back in the field in 2021 working on his AKC Master title.

Zap's Pedigree, genetics and intence retrieving desire, whether duck hunting or at a Hunt Test, made him an asset to our kennel's breeding and training program. He feeled our hearts with love and warm memories long after he retired. Thank you for spending your life with us, Zap.

The origin of our kennel name comes from our first lab "Stormy" - Radars Detected Storms A Comin MH. Stormy's main goal in life was to please us....whether it be duck hunting on a nearly frozen lake, pheasant hunting in South Dakota, or competing in field trial and hunt tests, Stormy simply wanted to do his best and please his handler. When prospective puppy buyers would come to see a litter, Stormy always had the ability to seal the deal, "we want a pup just like him" they would say. Stormy along with Teal (Storms Prize Whistling Wings MH) are the foundation of our breeding program, which proved to be a great success, producing pups and grandpups that are all over the United States, all giving great enjoyment to their owners. Stormy passed away in March 2007 but he will live on forever in the hearts and the priceless memories of many. Thanks Storm you taught us so much, you are greatly missed.
