Riser was whelped July 6, 2001. Pat Crockett of Keemaka Labradors graciously consented to handle a breeding of their mom, Lulu, to FC-AFC Teddy's Ebonstar James (click on Jamie for larger picture). Jamie is out of two-time National Amateur Field Champion and two-time Canadian National Amateur Field Champion Ebonstar Lean Mac and has competed in three Nationals -- Jamie was one of the finalists in the 2001 National Amateur in Minnesota, quite a feat for a dog who was not yet 4 years old. He was also a finalist at the 2002 National Amateur. Pat handled the breeding which was done using semen shipped from Kentucky to Houston, then kept Lulu through the whelping and raising of the litter.
She passed two junior hunter tests at the Alamo Retriever Club event on April 20-21, 2002. She earned her WC (working certificate) title at the Heart of Texas Labrador Retriever Club test held on May 19, 2002. Shortly after coming into her first season, Riser developed shyness issues and was retired from public competition until the fall of 2008, when, while training with her younger relatives, Riser showed that she was ready for a brief return to field competition. She passed an HRC started test and finished her AKC Junior Hunter title and once again retired to a life of leisure.
Riser had OFA normal elbows and OFA excellent hips. Her hips were in the 90th percentile (better than 90% of Labs measured) according to PennHIP. She had no evidence of congenital disease and her eyes were CERF'd regularly.
In the late spring of 2013, Riser, always a picky eater (very unusual for a Lab), showed signs of illness which included even greater loss of appetite. She was diagnosed with Lymphona and lost that final battle June 25, 2013.
