A training buddy of mine bought an incredible pup by Sylvia McClure’s AFC-Lane’s Rumble in the Jungle…”Man”. For a year and a half I’ve been fortunate enough to watch her grow into a fantastic young retriever. My buddy Bruce and I train 5 or 6 days a week, so I’ve watched this pup to the point of amazement, and she’s being trained “just for fun”.
She is incredible. Straight as anyone could imagine, great memory, learns quickly, and obsessed with retrieving.
Irony has it, Bruce has (had) no desire to run trials with this pup🤨.
I was so blown away by this pup, I requested (begged) the breeder to repeat the breeding. Well, he decided to breed to AFC-Man, but to a different bitch.
Since I know Man and the family history of the dam, I convinced a friend to jump in on the breeding. He and I made the move and now have our own Man baby!!!
I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on this pup.
That being said, I’d like you all to meet Top Ranch Hand Man-“Rip”.
Possibly the brightest pup I’ve had my hands on in the 30+ years of dealing with Labs.
He’s crazy smart, hard going, runs straight, fearless in the water, obsessed with retrieving, and good looking to boot.
I certainly hope he continues to grow and develop into a fantastic player.
I relish every day that I get to experience this pup’s progress.

***Its kind of funny, after watching Annie, there’s actually a growing demand for Man pups in our circle!!! We will have 3 of his pups in our group in the spring. A little sibling rivalry

I also know of 3 pros that are raving about their Man x Joy pups. I believe David’s friend Bruce has a female from the first breeding. I think (?) there’s only 2 breedings. I’ve heard that the “repeat sold out before they were born.”
I’ve recently heard that local pro Chad Radt, in the Anderson area, has a planned breeding with Man in the upcoming days. The bitch is a really nice QAA2.
Bruce’s pup is really nice. I can’t wait to see her run derbies. GO ANNIE!!!

I really like Rise!!!
Marking, attitude, team player, and her masculine looks.
Of course , I see Man 2 or 3 times a week. Straight running, powerful, good looking and has a great on/off switch.

I’d love to have one🤔

I have an Ali pup breed to an NFC Running Back female QAA/MH, omg the drive, style, and other all ability as an 11 month old female is incredible. I got her HR title with her 2 weeks ago at 10.5 months and we are switching gears and plan on running some derby’s in the fall. Been stretching her out past 7-10 days, 150-225 yd doubles and she front foots everything, I can’t wait
