Breeder: H: Jansky - Druid's Peak Labrador

Cathy has such a strong will and an incredible working character; she needs to work every day and occupy her brain and legs... Otherwise, she is not happy.
Her best trial she had was one day after having a heavy hunting day, retrieving at least 50 birds. I say it was her best trial because finally, at the age of nearly 6 and after a working day, she slowed down and it was a pleasure to handle her nice and calm. Maybe I can say and hope, that now, finally being a little slower, she might start having more success. Nonetheless with only one eye and a chronical rhinitis.
Some more details regarding her story.
Unfortunately, Cathy had a catastrophic accident at the end of August 2016.
I can say that 2016 was the worst year of my life. I lost my beloved partner due to an aggressive cancer and Cathy lost her eye. She went under my car, I simply run her over.
There are no words that can describe your feelings when your dog is under your car. It’s just terrible.
It was a stress situation and I guess she couldn't understand it, all of my dogs know to stay away from the car, which I just wanted to turn around, and she did not... And this is the worst thing that can happen to somebody who loves his dogs. It's not even comparable to a nightmare. But I can also say that this small tiny little bitch has a character that I've never imagined. Even the day after the accident she was keen on playing with some tennis balls, and I do not want to think about the pain that she might had suffered. But it was the only way to avoid to get her too much shocked. And to make her understand that she still can retrieve!!! This improved her soul spirit and she was able to approach the surgery which the vet said was the best thing to do.
The eye was then removed after a few days, and after ten days she was out picking up in the Scottish Borders. She is so keen on working that this was the best remediation for her. After this we had a lot of trials, and she became third in the Italian Championship, which only due to a minor error avoided her getting the victory. This would have been the first time in story winning in two years first the mother and the year after the daughter. But trials and judges .... I’d better don't loose comments on that.
I am so very proud of her, she always applies what she learns in training, she is honest and gives always her best and even more than a 100% when it comes to work.
This is the most lovely attitude you can wish in a working dog.
