Dusty was delivered by c-section on September 21, 2007. He was the product of a long planned breeding of his mom, Luna, to Kobe (CH MACH Prospect's Slam Dunk UD RE MH MXP8 MJP6 PAX2), a yellow dog from California who demonstrated excellence in all areas. Kobe is a conformation champion, an agility champion, and has the highest level performance titles in obedience, rally obedience, and retriever hunt tests.
Dusty was originally placed with someone as a replacement for an older service dog which had died. When the new owner, due to continuing health problems, was forced to give him up, we brought Dusty back home and he began training for field work. Although significantly behind his sister Abby, Dusty caught up quickly. He passed a started test (UKC) in his first competitive outing, then proceeded to earn his JH (AKC Junior Hunter) title by passing 4 tests in 4 tries. He has also earned his WC (working certificate), passed 2 AKC senior hunter tests and 2 HRC seasoned tests. On March 14, 2010 Dusty completed his SH title and on May 15, 2010 he completed his Hunting Retriever (HR) title. He earned his Working Certificate Excellent (WCX) title at the Heart of Texas Labrador Retriever Club's spring test on June 6, 2010. He completed his Hunting Retriever Championship on October 31, 2010 at the Heart of Texas Retriever club HRC fall test. He completed his Master Hunter (MH) title on March 11, 2012 at the Brazosport Retriever Club spring test. In November 2012, Dusty finished 3rd in the Owner-Handler Qualifying stake hosted by the Waterloo Amateur Retriever Club. In November 2015, he completed his Upland Hunter (UH) title at the Lonesome Dove Hunting Retriever Club test in Comanche, TX.
Dusty loved doing HRC type work most of all, especially the upland hunting where he excelled. He occasionally starred at the more difficult or technical work, but the down to earth hunting tests suited him the most.
