Ciara or, as  our family called her, "Classy" was as sweet as her name. She was our  foundation bitch and had a beautiful deep bittersweet chocolate coat.  She exhibited the many wonderful qualities required by the Labrador  Standard. At full maturity she had wonderful coat, blocky head, warm  expression, and powerful otter tail- all while standing at a beautiful  72 lbs.  

Her goal in  life was to please everyone she met. Therefore, she was an eager learner  and a joy to train. From the time she was a very young puppy, she would  sit patiently, paying close attention while waiting for her next  command. She retrieved her first bird at 8 weeks old and continued, up  to the day we lost her, to play fetch, ride in the pick-up or Gator, lay  by your feet, go for walks, or most of all entertain the grandchildren.  She had the refined show ring trot of proud elegance, mimicking her  Champion sire Toby to a "T" . Ciara was everything we wanted in our  foundation Bitch and was truly a lovely girl . She was always proud and  positive; exhibiting that lovely Labrador temperament we have all fallen  in love. Ciara gave us so much in the short 4 years we had her, and I will forever have her girls here by my side. 

 Ciara will forever live in  our hearts here at Hayshaker Labs. We lost Ciara much to soon in a  tragic accident, but we can hold close to our hearts that her lineage  will live on here forever with us in her girls Izzy & Natalie. We  rest our heads knowing that my mother has a new best friend by her side  now over the Rainbow Bridge.
