Fairlane Labrador is a small hobby kennel located in West Central Indiana on the family
farm where I grew up.  My love for animals, I attribute to my father, for he had a very quiet reassuring way with all god's creatures, from the registered Angus cattle herd to the Quarter horses we raised.  I was always surrounded with animals, domestic as well as the wild varieties.  I choose the Fairlane name for the kennel to honor my father,  Fairlane Angus name was well known and respected in the cattle industry for over 50 years.
My knowledge of how to care for and handle large and small animals came in a very 
useful as I pursue a career as a veterinary technician.  I was fortunate to have been employed by an equine practitioner that specialized in lameness issues.  This is where my education and foundation in animal structure,and correct gait was learned.  Most of the horses were Standardbred/ trotters, if they were not sound or correct in structure these animals would be "heart breakers" for the owners.
I have a deep appreciation for the Labrador that can cover the ground with effortless ease,whether its hunting, conformation or as a family pet.  There is nothing more beautiful then a correct moving labrador. I want a labrador that is easy to live with, correct in structure, has a great temperament and
is pretty to look at.  That is not to much to ask.
When a litter is produced, it is first and foremost either to replace a breeding bitch or to have youngsters to show.  After the decision has been made as to which puppies stay, the rest of the litter is then offered to the public for sale on a limited registration. All the litters are raised in my house under close supervision.  The socialization process starts very early for these youngsters.. By the time they are ready to go to permanent home they have had all their vaccinations, wormed and vet checked.
Many thanks to Karen and John Helmers for their guidance, knowledge, patience and good times. I have met some great people in the Labrador world and have made some very special friends, to this I thank you all.
A Huge thanks to LeeAnn Bane Smith for her superior care while I am away showing.
Thanks to the Labrador community for the support, encouragement and prayers after my tragedy.
