2005 Spring Assessment



Every year since 1987 when Chambray Labradors entered the conformation arena, we have debuted a new crop of youngsters in the spring shows. This year was no different, as those puppies that came into the world as part of Chambray Labrador's Program for the Betterment of the Breed in 2004 made their first appearance at the 1st weekend of shows at the West Palm Beach Dog Shows on March 12th & 13th, followed by the Ft Lauderdale Dog Shows on March 19th and 20th.

Along with those new pups were some of the youngsters that came into the program later in 2004 and of course our top competitors were out for the points to complete their titles.

Here is a dog by dog assessment of the 2005 Show Season debut.

  • Am/Nat Ch Chambrays Twist of Fate - Karley continues to up the ante on her record-setting trek of  Best of Breeds by taking her career 16th Best of Breed at West Palm Beach on Saturday's show. Karley will take the spring and summer off with maternity duties, she will be bred to BISS BIS CH Aquarius Centercourt Delight.

  • Am/Int Ch Chambrays Moon Over Maya becomes Chambray Labradors state-record #18 Home-Bred champion by winning the remaining Major-Point show on Saturday's WPB show. Maya will be bred in the fall of 2005.

  • Am/Int Ch Chambrays Right On Target -  Dakota wins a 4-point major at WPB's Sunday show to earn his championship and become Chambray's state-record #19 Home-Bred Champion. Dakota and Maya set another new record of finishing back-to-back in the same weekend. Dakota will be campaigned as a "specials dog" in the Best of Breed competition for the rest of 2005.

  • Am/Int Ch Chambrays Sir Lancelot Chisholm CGC - Lance did not make the 1st 2 weekends of shows in March, but plans call for him to come out as a specials to compete in the Best of Breed Competition later in the summer or fall to get him to qualify for the 2007 Eukanuba.

  • HySpire Gateway Major Chord CGC - Cori is the newest addition to Chambrays Partners Program for the Betterment of the Breed. She comes to Chambray from Gateway Labradors with 9 points. We look forward to finishing Cori in 2005, as she will be head-lining the Open Yellow Class. Cori showed well at both the West Palm and the Ft Lauderdale weekends. Cori just earned her CGC title on 03/22/05

  • Int Ch Danjacs Steppin Out At Carmay CGC - Duchess finished the year in December of 2004 at the Miami shows with a 3-point major under respected breeder-judge Sam Draper. She is now showing in the very competitive Open Yellow Class. At 2 years of age, she has developed into one of the best moving bitches in the Florida shows.

  • Carmays River of Dreams - Rivers has developed into a very impressive young male. He is competing in the very tough Open Black Class and has held his own against the older males in that class. As he nears 2 years of age in June, we expect him to add to his 4 points from last year.

  • Int Ch Chambrays Southern Pride CGC - Beau with 2 points from last year has been placed into the conditioning and training program to get him ready for the up coming spring and summer shows.

  • Carmays No Alibi - Ali has matured into a very showey & typey bitch, as she competes in the Open Black Class. She will be 2 years old in June and with added maturity and showmanship we expect her to dominate the wins from that class.

  • Int Ch Chambrays Amazing Grace CGC - Gracie is into a conditioning and training program as she matures and competes from the Am-Bred Class and eventually move up into the Yellow Open Class. We expect for Gracie to follow in her 3 sisters footsteps and finish out her AKC title by the beginning of the 2006 show season.

  • Gateways Talk Of The Town CGC- Gabby is a new acquisition from Gateway Labradors and is co-owned with WinQuest Labradors. She has matured into a flashy and typey black bitch who took a Major Reserve Winners Bitch at West Palm Beach on Sunday. She will be shown from the Am-Bred Class and we expect her to garner some points from this class before she moves up to the Black Open Class. Gabby just earned her CGC title on 03/22/05.

  • Int Ch Chambrays MidNight Lady CGC -  Lady will be back out in the Bred-By Exhibitor Class for the next 3 months until she comes into heat. She will be bred to Carmays Duststorm at Chambray (Dusty) in June or July. Lady has 2 points and has matured tremendously in the past season and should pick up some more points along the way.

  • Chambrays Princess Kaeti CGC - Kaeti has turned into a real sweetheart and will compete from the 12 to 18 Class now in the spring and into the summer. She is very typey and has a very sweet face and expression and should do well from this class.

  • Carmays Duststorm at Chambray - Dusty comes into the Partners Program from a top breeding of 2 Dovetail Labradors dog's, BISS Ch Dovetails Walk Th Walk (Walker) and Dovetails Diamonds In The Ruff and is now co-owned with Tanya Brillembourg. He will be showing from the 12 to 18 Class and should hold his own there as he is developing into a real looker!

  • Int Jr. Ch WinQuest-Chambray Donna Gia - Gia is currently showing from the Puppy Classes and has already won several outstanding 1st placements. She took 4 V1's at the International Shows and earned her Jugend title.

  • WinQuest Major Storm - Jason is in the development program as a co-own with WinQuest Labradors. He has shown 4 times and taken 3 first placements. We are really happy with this great looking boy and expect him to do well from the Puppy Class.

  • WinQuest-Chambray Onyx van Dalen - Onyx has developed nicely, as she shows from the Puppy Classes. She has taken several 1st placements with competition and we expect her to mature out into a very competitive bitch.

  • Chambrays Out Of The Ruff - Hogan was been very impressive from the Puppy Classes with 2 outstanding Major Reserve Winners Dogs awards. He consistently wins his class and is looked at by the 4 judges that he has been under.

  • Chambrays Summer Arrogance - Summer made her debut out of the very tough Bred-By Class at the first 4 shows of the year, competing against mature adult bitches. She showed well, even taking a 4th Place out of 8 bitches at Sundays Ft Lauderdale show.

  • Chambrays Diamond In The Ruff - Beach Boy has been in training and debuted at the WPB shows competing in the tough Puppy Class. We expect to have him competitive at the up and coming spring shows.
