'Roma ' was born on 16th November 2010.
She was one of two black bitches and two black boys sired by the promising young black, Mardas Roman Republic JW ( Sh Ch Lindall Redemption x Sh Ch Mardas Sahara Silk JW )
'Nicky' has been awarded 2 RCC's to date.

As this was his first litter born in the UK to a show bitch - our Meadowleigh Mariella ( 'Ruby' ) ) these puppies were an exciting prospect.

'Roma' has the sweetest of Labrador temperaments and is full of character - "Wanting to please" is her biggest wish and of course, as a pup, she would sometimes get up to certain mischief when our backs were turned such as tipping up the flower pots on the patio or making herself comfy on the sofa when she reckoned no one was watching!

Apart from these past puppy antics, and the occasional digging in the garden, she is really a very biddable girl and is bringing a dummy back quickly to hand as well as swimming confidently in our local river, with help from her mum, grandma Maisie (now her late grandma) and Ella...Roma's special buddy, who we had to say our unexpected Goodbyes to in early August 2015

We were delighted that Roma qualified for Crufts 2012 & onwards!

Roma was shortlisted at Crufts in March 2012 from her Special Junior Bitch Class of 29 entries down to the Judge's final selection of 12 lovely girls.

In 2014, Roma qualified twice for Crufts 2015....
Thank you to her judges.

She had her first litter to Ch Naiken Zephyr on November 1st 2015..
You can view her puppies & her daughter Maya, on our Litter page & Meadowleigh Romantic Quest's page.

Roma was mated to the chocolate male..Berolee Mack The Knife & 7 perfect girls arrived at Meadowleigh on May 21st 2016 ...her second litter of siix black & one chocolate bitch. '
Now a Veteran at 10 years young, 'Rooney' possesses a wonderful temperament & is a true & balanced example of the breed.
He has enjoyed an incredible show career & has been awarded 2 CC'S...Almost a CHAMPION!

Roma has regained her 'figure' & returned to the show ring in September 2016, winning her Class..
We hope that successes will continue at her future shows..2016/2017
