Cricket is a bright, lively girl. She charms all who meet her. In her first show at Lenape GRC specialty, she was 2nd and 3rd in sweeps and regular classes over a number of pretty puppies. She won her first point in April '07 and second in June handled by Jamie Campbell .She also has four RWB to her name, including a major reserve.

Cricket is a great retriever, very birdy and loves to swim. Cricket earned her JH adn WC in the Fall of '05.

Cricket is now retired and lives with my daugher.

Cricket was co-bred by Meggan and Dave Ballard and was one of 13 puppies conceived by chilled semen.
