MBPIG Ch Janlon Highcaliber Showgirl
August 2004 – July 2019 — Great influence to us as a friend and companion and the top female producer of her generation for us.

While Liane and Sharon were on a vacation in sunny California they dropped by to visit JanRod Labradors. While there they saw a very impressive nine month old yellow male and indeed he grew up to become one of the greats. This yellow Labrador puppy grew up and became National Ch 2006, Multiple BISS & BOSS GAm Ch JanLon’s Light My Fire, aka Striker.
Striker impressed us so much, we said we’d love to purchase a Labrador puppy from the same dam when she was bred in the future. Jan remembered our comment and called us when she had a lovely black female puppy that she felt would meet our high standards. Gypsy definitely had it all appropriate clearances, beautiful conformation with a head piece seldom seen and wins over everyone who comes to visit our Labradors. We can not thank Jan and Debbie (Kanlon) enough for entrusting us with Gyspy.
This wonderful girl left this year just shy of her fifteenth birthday. Gypsy like her daughter Bella, always knew she was not suitable as a kennel dog and has always lived in the house. She also brought a great deal of happiness to a friend of ours during a difficult time and actually retired there. She truly makes a difference to all of us whom she graces her presence with.
Gypsy was more than just a companion however, she was an influential producer. She gave us multiple champions at all-breed and specialties through her children and grand even great grand children! These lines have passed all appropriate clearances and have wonderful personalities and temperaments. Gypsy will continue her influence into the next generation of several kennels.
Her children included:
Ch Highcaliber Fifth Element (Leeloo) sired by our “Sage”. BPISW
Ch Highcaliber’s By Chance and MBPIS Ch Highcaliber Twilight Eclipse (sired by our “Dany”),
Ch Highcaliber Labradale Vegas and Ch Highcaliber Labradale Stella WC JH (Marlyn Labs) (sired by our “Coffee”)
Her last litter by our UK import Knight gave us Group placing female Ch Highcaliber Labradale Saffron.
Four litters in her breeding career and we kept from all of them, she produced well from four different sires.
Many grand and great-grand children now can be found through our lines as well, including but not limited to Gemma, Summer, Miranda and Mischief.
Visit her offspring under Summer, Bella and Vegas and next generations including Mischief, Gemma and Miranda.
