Eagle Bay Labradors, located in South Central Indiana, breeds Champion English style Labrador Retrievers for the show ring and as family companions. We have had Labradors in our lives as companions since 1984. In 1999 we established Water’s Edge Newfoundlands and began showing Newfoundlands in conformation, realizing much early success and meeting many new friends and enthusiasts. In 2008, with more experience and several Newfoundland AKC Championships, we ventured back into Labs after seeing one of Vicky Creamer’s lovely dogs from the prestigious Belquest kennel. We knew that was the style of Lab that we wanted to establish ourselves in the breed and approached Vicky to buy our first two show quality females, Daisy (Belquest One Fine Day at Eagle Bay) and Ashley (Belquest Ashley of Eagle Bay). Meadow (Belquest Fields of Gold at Eagle Bay), another outstanding show quality female, has also come from Belquest to Eagle Bay. You will find our Labs at shows with our talented handlers, Sam and Karen Mammano. We are very excited to have Labradors in our kennel and to meet new friends who share our enthusiasm for this special and popular breed. We are active members of the Hoosier Labrador Retriever Club and participate in dog shows throughout the Midwest and on the East Coast.
When we are not taking care of the dogs and kennel, we are involved in academic and business communities. J.C. is Professor Emeritus of Environmental Science in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University in Bloomington, where he was a faculty member for 37 years. Mary leads Market Research for the Engine Business at Cummins, Inc. in Columbus, Indiana. Our residence and kennel are located on spacious forested property near a small lake in South Central Indiana.
