Ridge View Blissful Bailmont CGC
Bailey was a lovely chocolate girl with a beautiful rich, dark coat, correct structure and sound movement. She was at home in the water as a true Labrador should be, and indeed had a blissful personality! Bailey was also a wonderful and dedicated mother who blessed us with two terrific litters for a total of eighteen beautiful and sound puppies. We credit Bailey as our foundation bitch and look to her daughter to carry on her legacy. Bailey was the proud mom to CH Rosewater Bad Girl CGC "Jezebel". Congratulations, and thank you, Bailey for your amazing daughter who blessed us with our second generation of beautiful Labradors!
We are so glad you were able to meet your last two grandkids, Bliss (named after you), and Harry.
We will forever miss your loving presence in our home.

Maddie was a spectacular yellow girl. She had it all, beauty, intelligence, energy and personality. She was dynamic in the Conformation ring and had a successful show career having attained multiple Best of Breed awards and group placements, including Group Firsts. Maddie's boundless enthusiasm and stamina made her a natural in Agility and Rally as well. Maddie was also registered as a Therapy Dog with Therapy Dogs, Inc. and provided her services in schools, hospitals, and nursing homes. Maddie was the founding "canine" in the C.A.R.E. (Canine Assisted Reading Enhancement) program initiated in Miami-Dade County Public Schools. She was also quite the star as she appeared in commercials, print ads and magazines. Maddie was the proud mom to three handsome boys, Jack, Mr. Big and Tonio. All of Maddie's boys are finished Champions, and Jack and Mr. Big are Grand Champions (GCH Rosewater 24 TT CGC, Jack; GCH Rosewater New Yorker TT CGC, Mr. Big; and CH Rosewater Just A Gigolo, Tonio). Maddie lived a long, active life. Like Rosy, she accomplished a great deal during her time with us. She and Rosy shared an incredible bond we are convinced was never severed. Lewis was at her side as she crossed the Rainbow Bridge to be reunited with Rosy. We picture her now under Rosy's care continuing to run the agility courses they both loved.

Jezebel was a beautiful black girl out of Bailey's and Ch. Pembroke Just Do It "Nike's" litter. Jezebel had a natural retrieving instinct and awesome looks to match! She earned her National puppy championship at eight months of age and her AKC and International championships as well. Jezebel was a registered Therapy Dog with Therapy Dogs, Inc. and along with Maddie, provided her services in schools, hospitals, and nursing homes. Jezebel became a mom on August 4th, 2008 and gave us nine beautiful puppies. She was bred to our own, Jack (GCH Rosewater 24 TT GCG). She was the mother of a Grand Champion son (GCH Rosewater Babalu "Ricky"), and two Champion daughters (CH Rosewater Tropicana "Lulu" and CH Rosewater Blissful Memories "Bliss").
Our beloved "Smoochie", Jezebel was known in the Harkow household as Lewis' "office dog"--she rarely left his side. Lewis was by her side as she crossed the Rainbow Bridge to join Rosy, her mother Bailey, Maddie and Mr. Big. Our sweet girl touched many hearts. She will be forever loved and forever missed.
CH Rosewater Tropicana
Lulu is our first, second generation beauty. She was sired by our own GCH CH Rosewater 24 "Jack" and our CH Rosewater Bad Girl "Jezebel". Lulu is stylish and vibrant. She has beautiful conformation and exquisite movement. Lulu has not been shown very much but during those few times she has amassed some very impressive wins -- Best Puppy, Puppy Group 2, at the age of 14 months, a Major win and a Breed win over Specials (including her own father Jack, the #4 Labrador in the country in 2010); and a BOS over nationally ranked Specials as well. Lulu is now the mother of our third generation litter. She will return to the show ring to finish her AKC Championship after her maternal duties. We can't wait! Lulu is active in Agility and Therapy work as well.
Update: Lulu returned to the ring after Rosy left us under Lewis' watchful eye. He kept his promise to Rosy and fulfilled her dream of achieving Lulu's championship.
CH Rosewater Blissful Memories
CH Windfalls New England Patriot x CH Rosewater Bad Girl CGC
Bliss is our second generation black beauty. She was sired by CH Windfalls New England Patriot and our own CH Rosewater Bad Girl "Jezebel". Bliss is the sweetest of the Rosewaters, constantly yearning for and generously providing affection and attention. She is quite a presence in the ring, and quickly gathered some impressive wins. Like Lulu, Bliss had not completed her championship at the time of Rosy's passing. And, like Lulu, Lewis once again kept his promise, returning to the ring with Bliss to achieve another of Rosy's wishes. Rosy would be proud of her "House of Champions!"
Rosewater Singular Sensation THD CGC
Pippa is the only girl from our third generation litter sired by CH Lighthouse's Sea Wall (Oodles) and our own CH Rosewater Tropicana (Lulu). We have high hopes for Pippa, not just in the ring, but as mother to our continuing line of Rosewater Labradors. Pippa is owned by our dear friend Barbara LaRue. Barb will carry out the plans she and Rosy made for Pippa--stay tuned for updates!
Rosewater Wicked Wonder
Elphie is the only girl out of our fourth generation litter sired by GCH Rosewater New Yorker (Mr. Big) and Rosewater Singular Sensation (Pippa). Elphie is a very special girl, near and dear to our hearts. We expect she will carry on Rosy's legacy. She is already demonstrating the spunk, character, sweetness, beauty and intelligence common in the Rosewater Labs. Elphie is owned by our dear friend Mirta Segredo, who also owned her father, Mr. Big. Father and daughter loved spending time in each other's company!
