During a visit to England over 20 years ago, a stunning black
Labrador named Vic touched my heart. I learned that Vic was from
a kennel called “Sandylands.”
It was then that my long-term interest in, and love of the Labrador
I returned to the United States vowing that one day I would have
a Sandylands Labrador.
That day arrived for me in 1980, when I located a gorgeous black
with the Sandylands pedigree that I wanted so badly.
Tobey changed my life forever, and remained with me until his death
16 years later.
Today, Cambria is very proud to have two beautiful foundation dogs
from the Tapeatom and Sandylands lines. Tapeatom Sovereign Reign
(Katy) was first to arrive in the year 2000,
from the Tapeatom kennel located on the Isle of Jersey.
In 2003, Tapeatom Gentry (Kodi) arrived from South Africa where
Mrs. Elizabeth Howard of Tapeatom, had recently moved.
Tapeatom Sovereign Reign was bred to Priorise Tracker in June of
and produced Cambria’s Sovereign Light.
The goals and objectives of Cambria Labradors are to maintain the
respect and integrity
that have already been established by the breeders at Sandylands
There is no higher priority for me than to contribute to the sense
of pride and respect
that these reknown kennels have earned over many years of breeding

The late Mrs. Gwen Broadley of Sandlylands whose legacy lives on through
the dogs represented on this web site, and through magnificent Labradors around the world.
And, to my breeder, Mrs. Elizabeth Howard of Tapeatom Kennel. Thank you,
Betty, for sending Katy and Kodi to me, and for being such a great mentor
throughout the years.
