"How we got started...
In 1989 shortly after the purchase of
our first home we added our first family
member, Shelby, a golden retriever from
a local breeder. By the following
year we decided she needed a friend,
this was to be a Chocolate Labrador,
gratefully we were referred to a
Labrador breeder here on the island.
Up until the day we picked up
Beachbrooks Mocha Chip, the breeder
couldn’t decide which female she wanted
to keep for herself. She asked us
if we were interested in showing.
Unfamiliar with the show world we
figured why not it might be fun. After
many years of showing, we took a hiatus.
Wanting to get back
in the show ring, we put our order in
for another Chocolate Labrador, and
waited patiently. In the meantime,
in 2002, we were given the opportunity
to own and show Curly Coated Retrievers
bred by Rita Nelson of Gladrags USA.
Rita has spent many years breeding Curly
Coated retrievers in collaboration with
the original Gladrags Kennel owned by
Gladys and Hadyn Phillips of Welshpool,
Wales, UK. Since the first day
back in the show ring we have
experienced many successes. Our
patience paid off in May 05, when
Beachbrooks Day Dream Believer, “Eve”,
Here we are sixteen years later and have
been blessed with many more family
members and would like to share them
