Name: Kelsey Gender: Female Breed: Chocolate Lab Birth Date: 12/5/2018 Adoption Date: 12/12/2018 Origin: Duke's Group 2018 Advent Calendar Day 1 from Anthracite 🇺🇦✊
I'd never really owned a Lab before but I heard a lot of about their posing potential from other members of DG who were dissatisfied with Dalmatians (cough kathleen ❄ and Buck ). I had this poor girl for awhile and decided to bring her out. My aunt's chocolate lab recently passed away and to honor her memory, I named this Advent Calendar lab after her. Even her show name "Diamond Shoals" is the same as the late Kelsey. I hope she'll live up to her name! I know that Anthracite 🇺🇦✊ did write a note saying that the white patch on her chest would make her harder to show in Conformation at PKC because its a fault (?). We'll see how she does!
I believe that one of her litter mates is Blackie who is owned by Amy (I know-- they are both first gen but I think they both came from that same DG Advent Calendar day!). Maybe she can meet all those pups again some day and see if they are friends ;)
As of right now, she's currently training to be a great PKC shower-- in all show types from standard to trials!
But when she was little, she was quite the loveable goof,
