1st 11+ Veteran & Generations Class - ALRC Specialty 2018 - Judge Greg Lynch - 1ST - #136 – CH GINANDER’S MADABOUT SHELBY GOOD This one brought tears to my eyes, which often happens with veterans, but this one was special. Just diagnosed with liver cancer, she’s had a hard time getting around but she was just incredibly lovely. You could just see her in her younger days. We could have kept her at home. Absolutely gorgeous.
She also showed in Generations and I could see in both classes that she must have been absolutely stunning in her prime. It was a pleasure to award her the class, and I believe she would have gotten it even with competition. Amazing girl – thank you for bringing her to me. Godspeed, Shelby.
Judge Jeff Gilmore- EOLBA Specialty 2009 - Very nice outgoing female. Good balance and angles, nice tail set and level carriage. Good movement with drive. Proud to make her Reserve Winner's Female.
Shelby is a wonderful addition from our good friends Phyllis and Liz and Ginander Labradors in Ontario. Their last breeding proved to be a winner. Shelby is full of life, a true show girl and willing to work hard for you in the ring, the yard or the field. She is a nice compact girl, with a wonderful coat and properly wrapped tail. She has lovely movement to go along with her wonderful bubbly attitude and good shoulder layback. We have received wonderful comments from judges and fellow breeders on her and she has excelled in the ring for us to date. Shown only at two all breed shows to date, she has picked up 2 Best of Winner wins. She also attained her Junior CFC title easily and has earned her first major win in the US. The rest of her show career has been at the specialty level.

Shelby has left a legacy here at Madabout and we are forever grateful to Phyllis Anderson and Liz Gingell of Ginanders Labs for providing this girl to us. Shelby didn't produce many puppies here at Madabout (7 in total) however the quality of those puppies have been outstanding. 6 of these puppies have remained here and continue on in our breeding program and one lovely girl is in a pet home.
Shelby is now retired, relaxing on the couch, spending summers at the cottage and trying to steal any food that she can. Thanks to new owners Kris and Judy for providing this wonderful girl her forever home.
