"Punkin" is owned by Lime Creek's Deborah Joseph and Paul Young. The 54 pound runt of the first Lime Creek litter, Punkin is intense, but soft and highly trainable. Her great speed and tremendous drive in the field, coupled with her small size, led her to be christened "Paul's Pocket Rocket" while still a young pup. As long as she has plenty of exercise, she's sweet and quiet at home, but she's wiry and intense in competition. She lives to work. She likes nothing better than hunting, competing, and training.
Punkin was the first Grand Master Pointing Retriever in Wisconsin. She, her littermate "Mickey", and her nephew "Joey" remain the only Grand Master Pointing Retrievers in the state.
Punkin has been entirely amateur trained and handled. We believe that her list of AKC accomplishments alone make her the most broadly titled working Labrador in North America. She is truly the ultimate versatile working Labrador.
on Nov 2, 2002, she earned her MACH, with
By Nov 17, she had upped this to 24 DQs and 1133 MACH points.
On the basis of three qualifying runs at the 2002 Championships, Punkin ranked
9th out of 127 20-inch dogs competing for one of 13 spots in the Final run.
