Meet the incredible studs that make our program possible below!
We are so proud of our STUD boy, Alba Del Marina Non-Stop Winner (call name, Louie)! We searched the world over for a perfect chocolate boy that would go pair well with our lines, and Louie checks all those boxes! Louie is a medium sized boy, weighing around 75 pounds. He is happy, playful, eager, and so much fun to be around. Louie's dark chocolate coat is beautiful and thick, his head and expression are gorgeous, and his conformation is near perfection with nice straight feet and hocks, great tailset, topline and chest! As a bonus, Louie can produce chocolate, black, AND yellow puppies! We have already begun to see his production hit the ground, and we are absolutely drooling over the gorgeous puppies he has produced! Louie is already proving himself to live up to his name, Non-Stop Winner.
Thompson, oh, Thompson. Son of our very first male Labrador stud, Tom (Get it? Tom’s son??). From the moment we laid eyes on Thompson, we knew we could never let him go. Tom is special to us in so many ways and we knew when we paired him with Prima we would want a puppy out of their litter. But even so, we were not prepared for Thompson as a puppy, and how he would capture our hearts. Thompson was a solo puppy and his mom, Prima, who is one of the most devoted moms we have had, could not stop caring for him and feeding him. He was sooooo fat, chunky, and lovable, we could hardly stand it. And now, that chunky pup that could hardly walk for a while he was so, ahem, well-fed, has turned into the GORGEOUS stud we always knew he would be. He has his parents' easy going, friendly, fun, and calm demeanor that makes him an absolute joy to be around. He has a huge, chunky, head, nicely built structure and is very nicely balanced and a good size of a healthy 85 pounds. We are overjoyed to begin to welcome Thompson puppies into our program. He is able to produce both black and chocolate pups. There are many, many European champions in his impressive pedigree. We are thankful every day to get a puppy like Thompson out of our wonderful Tom (and Prima).
Tom was the very first sire we ever added to our program here at The Happiest Labrador (yes, he is the sire to Thompson!) It is hard to put into words how much we love our Tom. Everyone who meets him has the same consensus: “I never knew I wanted a Lab until I met Tom” “that’s the best dog I’ve ever met!” “I didn’t think I would ever want a black lab and then I met Tom”. Best friends to everyone, and especially his family members, we have never seen such heart and personality in a dog. Add his beautiful head and expression, impressive size, and awesome coat and tail, impressive foreign pedigree, and we really don’t think we will ever own another dog like him. Tom is adored by everyone. He has his special friend, but is friendly with the whole family, and anyone outside it as well! He LOVES the ball, LOVES the water, and just has tons of energy and fun in him. However, just as much as playing, he loves to hang out and relax with the family. To sum it up, he is the perfect Labrador Retriever!
