Bear Paw Annie


A huge thank you to Mary Wiest, Beechcroft Labradors, for allowing me this wonderful girl. She flew to me at 8 weeks old, and turned my house upside down! But she far surpassed my wildest dreams, both in the show ring and in the whelping box, not to mention being everyone’s favorite in the field. What a fabulous producer she was, and everything here now goes back to her. A more fabulous foundation bitch, I could never have asked for. We lost her in December, and the only thing that has made it bearable is her daughters, granddaughters, and grandsons, carrying on her brilliance . . .
