Aussie, We bred our original Lab 12 Jan., 1982, kept two females out of her on that first litter and have gone on from there. We have bought only five females to bring into our line and of those only one has been the dogs we wanted to be able to breed and carry on our blood line. The one was a dog Cleo brought back from Germany and she is beautiful. The others, for one reason or another, did not measure up to what we were looking for.
Almost of all of our dogs go back to that original Lab female, William J.'s Queen of Cork (Corky). There are alot of generations represented in our Gator Point line and it has been an interesting ride where we have met a whole bunch of wonderful people, some of the members of RTF included. I believe 5 litters is the most we've ever had in a year and ONCE we had 3 litters on the ground at the same time, but never again.
We have had a lot of help from some of the most learned breeders in the nation and deeply appreciate it. The last 50 plus breeding's over the last 11 years have been frozen semen, surgically implanted by Greene and Assoc. in Folsom, LA and have only missed one breeding with R O C 'n" Moon Pie, she had a uterine infection, was cleared up and the next cycle she presented us with 12 pups, all good. It's been fun! Bill
