Even though Neon is still with us at a young "7" years of age due to pyometra she has
been spayed, so is no longer in our breeding program.  We are grateful she produced
Ch Benden's Two Deep Too Find.  We look forward to breeding both Nessie, and Neon's sister Cameo

Neon is a lovely bitch.  She has a wonderful front, which she produces and nice rear.  She is a bit long and does not carry a stellar topline - one of my pet peeves.  She has a nice ground covering gait and is clean coming and going.  Her head is average and she has lovely pigmentation.  She has had one litter, which produced Nessie.  

Neon's temperament/work ethic is tremendous.  She loves to work, tries hard and does not need a strong correction.  She can be quite exuberant, but can settle down.  She is a good retriever and nice strong swimmer.

She has been shown very limitedly.  She won a Best Opposite in Sweeps at the Dallas Specialty at a year of age.  Unfortunately between her coat being very difficult to deal with and her topline I did not campaign her.  

Neon is trained through open and almost ready for a WC.  At this point I am trying to decide if I am going to settle for a 190 performance in obedience and just get the titles or polish more to get the 195+ scores.  She is VERY capable of high scores if I choose to put the time in to polish a little more.  She will tenatively be bred at her next season.  We are considering "Clyde" Ch Calypso's Udderwise Alndon and Buzz - Ch Honeybee's Swarm Warning MH MCX
