R.I.P Razor's Da Cuttin Edge QAA SH "Kate" ( 01-2011 - 07- 2019 )

Kate was one awesome companion and family member. She was the staple of the Razor Labs kennel and breeding program. She was one hell of a producer and a hell of a trial dog......she will be sadly missed by her owners Scott and Colleen Anderson.



 

At a recent meeting of the CKC Board of Directors, changes regarding the qualification period for the National Retriever Championship were approved to take effect immediately, rather than waiting for the scheduled changes to be implemented in January 2020.
