I first met Olé and his owner, Anne-Charlotte, at the Centenary Show in the UK in June of 2003.  They were staying at the same bed and breakfast that a group of us were staying in, so we got a chance to meet him before he took his first CC at the Championship show that weekend.  He was quite the character romping on the grass with his toys and saying hello to us all, and when we got a chance to see him standing we were equally as impressed with his structure.  Leaving the show that weekend, many of us commented that we'd love to have the opportunity to use him in the US, and I emailed Anne-Charlotte to congratulate her on the win and tell her how much we liked him. She responded with the exciting news that he had finished his English Show Championship in 7 days by taking the dog ticket twice that following week, and our friendship began!! 

 

I also got the chance to see Olé at Crufts in March 2004 and that's when I decided I wanted a puppy of his.  The wheels began in motion to get a puppy from Maurice and Gina Givan's breeding of a Eng Sh.Ch. Poolstead Pumpkin daughter to Olé, and I flew to Scotland in September 2004.  While in Scotland, we talked more seriously about the prospect of Olé coming to the US to try and earn an American Championship, as well as stand at stud, in 2005-2006.  I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to own and love this French love bug.  As hard as it was to let him go back home, I know that Anne-Charlotte has missed him during his extended stay with me in the US and I am grateful for the opportunity to have him here.

 

Frozen semen available in limited quantities, inquiries welcome.

 

Olé has been tested to be an Optigen PRA Carrier.  The prcd-PRA is a autosomal recessive gene.   Much like a black dog carrying yellow, a carrier must be bred to another carrier (or an affected) to produce the  recessive gene. As a carrier of PRA, Olé will never be affected, but if bred to a carrier or affected dog he could  produce PRA.  Olé will only be bred to Optigen Normal/Clear mates, and his stud contract has an area in which the bitch  owner must initial that he/she understands the significance of the rating.   As a breeder who currently has more Carriers than Clears, I am thankful that the Optigen test has been improved and that I can use this tool to ensure that no PRA affected puppies are produced, while improving and maintaining type, temperament, and soundness.  prcd-PRA carrying Labradors that are excellent examples of the breed no longer have to be eliminated from breeding programs, by simply selecting to breed to prcd-PRA genetically clear mates. 

 

To learn more about Optigen testing and find out about upcoming clinics, see their website at www.optigen.com

A .pdf stud packet is available with Olé's clearances, pedigree, and championship certificates here.
