MBIS/MRBIS/MBISS GChEx GChG / MBOSS Am GCH Masonridge’s Right As Rain DS RN WC

What a fun girl Rain has proven to be whether in the show ring, jumping off a dock or retrieving in the field. This girl can do it all. 2021 ended with her being not only #1 Labrador Retriever but also #3 Sporting Dog. Rain has the highest placement for a Lab in the Sporting group since before 2009.

In 2022 she made her American debut completing her American AKC championship quickly included supported entry majors and LRC Regional specialty BOSS WB enroute. Shown few weekends as a special she needs a single point for AKC grand. She is a multiple group placer in US including Sporting group 1st and OH RBIS wins.

Back home in Canada in 2022 shown very limited she continued to be noticed completing her CKC Grand Championship Gold with MBISS, BIS, MRBIS and several group placements. Pictured above earning one her BISS under breeder/judge Margaret Brown (Ramsayville Labradors UK). Rain ended the year as #3 Labrador and #1 female Labrador.

She had 2023 off from showing as had a lovely litter of puppies but we did slip in some field training and she earned her first Junior Hunt leg. Attended the fall specialty held by the Labrador Retriever Club of Ontario where she was awarded Select Female, despite not being in her best coat under breeder/judge Cheryl Curtis.
