Storms Ahead Wildfire
Storm’s Ahead was sad to let Smoke go, but we knew that he had bigger adventures in his future. We sold Smoke to begin a career as a police dog in Georgia, he underwent his “basic training” sadly failing one test, therefore he was not able advance and graduate. Smoke was quickly purchased to pick back up as a retriever a Pheasant preserve in Oregon, while there a preserve client fell in love with Smoke and purchased him for his own personal hunting companion. Smoke has adjusted well to his travels and he very willingly accepted the tasks to perform many challenging skills. Smoke has grown into a broad shouldered, well-muscled beast like his sire “Zap”.

Radars Detected Storms A Comin MH
In Loving Memory - Love you Stormy Boy
March 8, 1998 - March 5, 2007
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.
