Photos and pedigree of this cute little boy kept me awake, so it was inevitable, that he just had to come to live with us. He arrived at Christmas 2013. His father is POL JCH JW’11 SW SH CH Seawind Polish Poker (born in USA, living in Europe) and his mother is beautiful C.I.B. FI EE SW CH Tealway Early Bird.

NEWS FLASH! On his 5th official show out and being just 14 months old, Robbie won the BEST IN SHOW at all-breed show in Tartu 11.1.2015! On the same show he also won the title of BEST IN SHOW JUNIOR! This does not happen often for a Labrador and I am grateful for the judges, who recognized him at this tender age!

First litter by Robbie arrived in January 2015, dam being MY BRAND KISS FROM A ROSE. More info and photos on the page “puppies”.

Robbie is a proud sire of man beautiful litters in Russia, Finland and Estonia. His health clearances have been excellent and his semen has been evaluated in September 2021 and it is in excellent shape.
