Cuda was a working retriever with an exceptional performance record and driving desire to please. He was a wonderful hunting companion as well as a very successful field trial competitor who set the standard for chocolates. His outstanding athleticism and disposition provided Charles Tyson with great pleasure at home as well as on the field trial circuit. Cuda was raised in his home amongst children and assorted pets. His dam, Missy Blueblack, was born in his home and is a littermate to FC AFC Rio Lago MH who qualified for twelve U.S. Nationals and five Canadian Nationals. A tribute to Cuda’s quality as a sire are his 93 American Kennel Club titled progeny in addition to his CKC, NAHRA and UKC titled offspring. 

In the spring of 1997, Cuda became the all time high point all-age Chocolate Labrador in the history of the American Kennel Club. Cuda recorded the first Chocolate Labrador Field Champion and Amateur Field Champion titles in 1996 and followed with the Canadian Field Champion and Canadian Amateur Field Champion titles in 1997. Later in 1997 Cuda earned the AKC Master Hunter title. All of Cuda’s titles and points have been amateur handled. Cuda qualified for four U.S. Nationals and five Canadian Nationals and was a Finalist in the 1997 Canadian National Amateur Retriever Championship.  Cuda died Feb 12, 2003 but is still available for stud via frozen semen.  For more information on Cuda or to find out stud information, please visit the following link: or e-mail Charles Tyson at

Mercy was born on my youngest daughter’s birthday and has become a very special part of our home and life.  Mercy is as beautiful as she is sweet.  Like all of my labs, Mercy likes to be a lap dog and cuddle.  She has been raised around various children and pets.  Mercy has incredible drive and endurance; she can work for hours and come back still wanting more.  She is able to jump like her mother and father and is easily trainable.  She makes a great house dog; she is calm and caring when in the house and minds very well.  Mercy loves to be loved on and is a little pushy on the subject at times, we often refer to her as a "Mean Cuddles" because she will just flop over on you and you get elbowed or smacked in the face by a flying paw, and so on.

Mercy is exactly like her mother "Tierra's Cocoa Christy" in that she is the most dedicated mother you will find.  You have to forcibly remove her from the whelping box to go outside to do her empties and get a drink otherwise she would lie in there until her bladder either exploded or she died of dehydration.  She tolerates the other dogs being in the room with her pups but she dares them to approach too closely.  Mercy has also taken exactly after her mom in the mom department with litter sizes; both had first litter of 2 pups, 2nd litter of 10 pups with emergency c-section and spay, of course Mercy was 6 at the time of her second litter so it is not that uncommon to have to have a c-section or be spayed.

 Mercy has an incredible prey drive and will run down anything from mice, rats, rabbits, birds.  She chases the cats but never harms them, they just have a chasing game.  As I said she likes to hunt mice and rats with them, she has a fierce hatred of any critter that has the gall to come into her domicile and eat her food and crap all over the place :}

Mercy is extremely athletic, just as both of her parents are, and is very eager to please.  She has great speed, great marking ability and natural intelligence.  Mercy was bred with our SHR Trinity's Mr. Wiggles JH summer of 2009 she gave birth to a litter of 10 pups - 6 males & 4 females.  Mercy had to have an emergency c-section and spay and is retired.
