Father: Josiah “Joey”, is a 70-pound yellow Lab who has a muscular lean body and very calm personality. He also is known to throw gorgeous pups with his gentle demeanor. He loves to hunt and has a casual, but effective hunting style. He works the field with little effort and no wasted motion, then when he hits scent, he zeroes in on the bird, and starts to slow down stalking in a cat-like fashion, until he locks up on point. He also has one of the most intense staunch point that we have seen. He passed the APLA CPR test without having to be WHOA trained. 

As a young dog, he was hunted on South Dakota birds, "WOW" was that an experience behind such a top quality pointing Lab like Josiah.  He is a great mixture of both pointing Lab and field trial pedigrees.  His strong pointing traits come from the four Grand Master Pointing Retrievers in his background (Eli’s Blackjack Tori SH, Sir Mighty Eli MH, Blackwater Lexus, & Grits of Blackforest) and his intense retrieving drive comes from the five FC in his pedigree (FC AFC Hilltops Hayseed, FC AFC Black Gold Kate’s Rascal, CFC CAFC FC AFC Jazztime, FC AFC Blackwater Bart II, FC Red Oak Casey). He is a true blend of the best of both worlds. 

Joey’s Strengths include: 

  • Strong Natural Point
  • Determined hunting style
  • Gentle Spirit
  • Athletic Body
  • Throws beautiful pups

 

Mother: Lena was born at on March 25, 2016 as a result of an exceptional breeding between 4xGMPR HRK’s Rooster Smasher of TGK MH(y)* x Dakota Diamond’s Cocoa (c)*.

Lena is a 53-pound Hershey chocolate Labrador Retriever who is a calm and gentle soul.  She loves attention but avoids the party and loves quiet moments with people. Like her famous father, Rooster, Lena has a quiet intelligence, and works best with positively focused training. She has a smaller compact body with a medium head, and an athletic body. She loves to hunt and especially enjoys the water and retrieving work. She will most likely throw pups that are calm and good solid retrievers. He strengths are her calm personality, gentle nature, and love for the retrieve. 

We purchased Lena because of her dad, Rooster. Rooster is a 72-pound gorgeous fox red Lab (carries chocolate) with a gentle personality in the house and is hunting machine in the field.He excels in looks and intelligence, is easy to handle & calm on the line or in a blind.  At the same time he has the drive to be a top competitor and has shown that throughout his hunt test history.  Rooster has also been passing these fine traits to his pups. In his testing career he has proven to be very a most accomplished Labrador Retriever.  Rooster has competed at 4 performance levels,rarely failing a test. APLA 4XGMPR (8-10), UKC Hunt test HRCH (10-12), first GRAND pass towards GRHRCH, Roosterran 2 other Grands and made it to the last day where he pointed his Chukar instead of flushing which prevented him from passing. He has earned - 295 UKC points, AKC Master Hunter (6-7), & 1st place Qualified All Age in his only field trial ever entered.  Rooster is a product of 4 generations of PointingLabs, 

Lena’s pedigree includes five of Marble Mountain Kennels favorite dogs. 1) GMPR Cajun of Black Forest MH (c)*, 2) GMPR Wannamaker’s Hot Tub SH (b)*, 3) 4x GMPR The Cptn’s Sierra Shadow Ale QAA MH (c)*, 4) AFC CFC CAFC Chugach Hills Jazz’s Rascal (b)*, 5) 4xGMPR HRK’s Rooster Smasher of TGK MH(y)*.
