Judge's Award of Merit at Specialty Show


02/25 & 26 2006


Chancey earns her International Champion's title
& wins
2 BEST IN SHOW Veteran





A true foundation bitch is any kennel's dream come true.
This is a female that goes way beyond good looks, way beyond Best of Breeds and Group wins,
way beyond exemplifying the breed standard to a T, both in conformation and in temperament.

It is all of the above, PLUS the ability to pass on those great qualities to her offspring in great proportions.
When a female presents herself as such, she becomes the kennel's flagship.

Am/Int Ch Chambrays Chisholm Chancey CGC  is Chambray Labrador's flagship foundation bitch.

Chancey's first litter with Ch Mtn Meadows Romeo produced only 3 girls,

  • ALL have AKC & UCI champion's titles.

  • ALL have won Best of Breeds (35).

  • A Best Puppy In Show (Connie).

  • All have Multiple Group Wins

  • Including 2 Group 1's

  • One is the #1 Labrador in Florida and #22 USA for the 2005 Eukanuba Invitational Championship  (Karley)

  • One is the #1 Labrador in Florida in the Sporting Group Rankings & # 11 in the country (Maddie)

  • All 3 are eligible for the 2005 Westminster Dog Show at Madison Square Gardens in New York
