Thompson's Sweet Trinity Misty Blue Ryder

Misty is a very dark chocolate lab and weighs about 63 pounds. She was born January 19, 2008. Misty is very people oriented, but also loves to exercise and run. She has incredible drive and looks like a spring ready to be sprung when waiting to chase a bumper. She loves swimming and begs to go often. In the house, she is most often found playing with, laying near or following us wherever we go. She still carries a ball around much of the day just in case we might want to give it a throw or two when we sit down. She's always up for a game of ball in the house. She also watches us closely around bed time so she doesn't miss out on the chance to get in the bedroom for the night. Misty has a high prey drive, Misty will give us 100% when retrieving and will not give up and come back without a bumper.

Misty is out of SHR Trinity's Lotta Miracles and FC AFC Cuda's Blue Ryder MH. Lottie is her owner's service dog, the dam of a service dog from her first litter and a pup from Misty's litter will be going into training to be a service dog for a wheel-chair bound woman in N.
