Creek Labs was established in 1998 with the purchase of my foundation
bitch, Hunt Club Miss Corey CD,WCI,WC,CGC,TDI.
love of dogs and horses developed at the very young age of 3. In 1967 my family
purchased their first quarter horse. We showed quarter horses for
3 years and then trotted, no, we ran into the running quarter horse world. At the
time, I was ten and started breaking and exercising the race horses for
my father and his clients.
In 1979 I married. On that very day, unknown to me, a little bay
filly was born 30 miles north of our home. Fate brought me to
her. We purchased her as our wedding present and she was our foundation
mare of Lickity Split Acres. We had many wonderful years racing quarter horses.
In 1987, I led my last horse to the paddock.. I enjoyed all the years and hold many memories of the running horses
in my heart. To this day, whenever I admire any horse,
I remember each and every horse that I had the pleasure
a friend approached
me with the idea of creating a company. A company that provided
horse drawn carriage rides in Indianapolis, IN. I
immediately wanted the challenged. Colonial Carriages, Inc. was
born. WOW what a great time! Several years later I
purchase my partner's share of the company.
In 1990, I had the
opportunity to sell the company and spend more time with my family. The day after closing on the
sale of my company, I applied for and was hired as a bus driver
at my children's school in Zionsville, IN. I truly enjoyed this
profession. I drove the daily routes in addition to special events, such as my son's basketball
and baseball team. I had the summer off to spend with the
children. We enjoyed swimming, hiking and camping. I
continued to drive a school bus until September 2011.
My first labrador retriever,
Hunt Club Miss Corey entered
my life when my son left for college. She is my constant companion. She
enjoyed all phases of training, whether obedience, field, or therapy.
She was a people pleaser and a joy to be with each day. One of her
favorite past times was playing soccer. She was Liberty Creek's
foundation bitch and has produced tremulous pups with type, personality,
tremendous retrieving drive, ton of coat, and the true Labrador
temperament of wanting to please their families.
February 28, 2004 Corey delivered her last litter and retired. She loved
to travel, swim, and slept with me every night. I held her in
my arms on February 13, 2011 as she cross the Rainbow Bridge and God
willing we will be together one day forever.
