The breeding of Hoss and Vicky which produced my foundation bitch Mig had the dual lines of Shamrock Acres and combined, within 4 generations, 15 Field Trial Champions (3 of which were Nationals), 12 Amateur Field Trial Champions (5 of which were Nationals), 1 Dual Champion, and 1 Show Champion. Despite her field origins, Mig was never a high-strung Lab and exhibits a very sweet disposition. Though no longer involved in hunting, she once displayed an enthusiastic drive for retrieving. She was bred to Ben (Bethor Wing-N-Wave Dark Knight) and is pictured here with her 7 puppies (all females) the day after she whelped. To this day, I still say that she delayed whelping that litter until I returned from a business trip in Washington, D.C. Before I had left, I told her that I would be home soon and asked her to wait for me. I left early my last day there and made the road trip home in record time. As soon as I got home, she greeted me at the door and then went right to her whelping box and began digging. She had the first puppy about 5 hours later. Shortly after whelping the litter, Mig was spayed. She is currently living the life of luxury with her co-owner.
Mig at 8 weeks
Name Origin: "Mig" comes from "MiG", the name of a series of small, usually black, very fast fighter planes flown by the former Soviet Union.
