Our "Keepsake AK Make My Day Callahan" is a Fox Red Yellow Labrador Retriever born December 4, 2008 in Renfrew, PA. He is named after the Clint Eastwood character, Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan.
Callahan did not take to the water as well as we might of hoped. We actually had to teach him to swim,...and eventually to jump off a dock. Although it took him awhile to learn,...he has taken to swimming & diving like a true Labrador, and has to be the happiest dog we've ever known!
Callahan's very first event was Cordorus in June 2009, although he wasn't quite ready to take the plunge. His first "scored" event was Dover in August 2009, where he achieved his first personal best jump of 5'9". His next personal best of 8'11" was achieved at Holly Springs, NC in September 2009.
Callahan's current personal best of 8'11" was achieved in Holly Springs, NC in September 2009.
