TLC Labradors - Letters
| Letters 2 |
|Here are a few letters and photos from our customers who have
purchased dogs from us. We feel that they have a lot to say! If you have purchased a TLC LABRADOR puppy, and would like to
send us a photo or letter please do so, we love to receive them!
Hi! Just wanted to
tell you about the puppy we bought from you in Dec. 2004. We
bought a female yellow lab from TLC's Ripple in the Water and
Copper Karma's litter. She's a great hunting dog and house
companion. She's definitely a spoiled part of the family.
I've been gaining more and more interest in HRC hunt tests and
she earned her HR title this past July and is off to the
finished level next year. Our main focus is hunting though and
she loves retrieving ducks and geese. I attached a few photos of
her. She a wonderful dog and part of the family. Thank you!

Dear Mark and Traci: Just wanted to give you an update on Rock.
He is really something, tho WAY too smart! Now about 4 1/2
months old, loves the water(retrieves better on water than on
land--assume it's the distractions on land), and is chewing
everything in sight!
He's an absolutely beautiful pup, with long,long legs and a coat
that has people asking me if I "oil" it! He absolutely gleams
and the intelligence in his eyes is amazing. He hits the water
like he's 2 and can't get to the bumper fast enough!
Just thought I'd send you a little update and to let you know
how happy I am with my TLC pup! Use me for recommendation
ANYTIME!! If I can get Katie geared up, we'll try to send you
pix of probably the prettiest pup you've ever sold!!!
Just wanted to update you on TLC's Emma's Chase JH, pup out
of TLC's Tri R Brody and Rainwater's Miss Brandy. Emma has
completed her JH test requirements, and has three SH test
I'm confident she will complete the SH test leg this spring
and we will immediately move to the MH tests series.
It has taken me a little longer then I expected to get her
SH/MH test qualified, rest assured it is not Emma that has
caused the delay. I spent over a year and a half in Iraq,
which put a major dent in my ability to get to all to the
hunt tests. Further, we have moved three times over
the past four years, so hopping around trying to find hunt
tests and training partners/groups has also taken some time.
Luckily, entry express has made finding hunt tests in a new
area much easier...So this spring we should have a chance to
finish her off, before I move again.
She is a great hunting dog, and a great friend who is at
home in the house, on the line or in the duck blind. A true
testament to your careful breeding and excellent development
of a quality pedigree.
Hope this helps your web site, saw you have a pedigree page
so wanted to update you.
Our season opened here today
in a downpour! The weather broke for a little while this
afternoon, and Charlie and I went out without the other
dogs for the FIRST TIME. We got our limit in 70 minutes
on totally wild birds. One of these was a cripple that
went into the creek and buried up under weeds on the
other side. Without her I would never have found it.
Thanks again for such a great dog and friend!
Have a wonderful season and God bless!

Thought you might enjoy seeing Buddy's latest
retrieve. He was so proud!!!! The ducks have not yet migrated
this year but the Swans are in. He got his first Swan.
Have a great Holiday Season,

|Mark and Traci,
I'm sitting next to the world's happiest, content, and most
beautiful pup. I certainly hope to see see the two of you
more often then every nine years, because every visit leaves
me feeling like I just robbed you blind. What INCREDIBLE
DOGS!!!!! I've named my new family member Bailey. Her color
is identical to Bailey's Irish Cream liqueur. She and Sierra
(my 9yr old lab from you) slept side-by-side for several
hours today. I think they know that they have something in
common. Bailey seems very content with her new surroundings
and enjoys chewing on Sierra's tale (Sierra could care
less). Thanks again for the wonderful service. I really
wanted a pup last fall, but feel very fortunate to have
waited the extra year to end up with this "world-class" dog.
Well I got Duck from you a year an a half ago and he is
just great he was hunting and retrieving at 6 months, everyone
said not to expect to much out of him his first year since he
was only 4 months old when season opened,
well we went two months without seeing any birds here in western
Nebraska so I took him to the east around Hastings and got him
into some birds. and he was great by the end of season he had 35
retrieved and three times as many flushes. This year he's ever
better at 1 and a half years old people are just amazed at him.
I don't duck hunt much but I took him out once this year and my
friends were just amazed at him, having never duck hunted we
killed 6 birds and a goose and never had to get in the water he
even went under searching for the goose and came up with it.
He is first my best friend and then my best hunting
companion. He's spoiled rotten. Any ways we are thinking about
getting a black female, but I'm not sure as to how Duck will
take to that he is very jealous I can't even be on the phone
with out him wanting my attention. I was wondering if someday
(after it warmed up, and you had puppies if we might drop by and
let him take a look at them and see how he does?, We don't have
much for good bleeders out this way alot of backyard breeders
whom I don't trust....After Duck I believe breeding might just
be a science. I would love a female just like him. (I just
don't know if my lap is big enough for two dogs). I'll
enclose a photo of Duck, he's a great boy.
Well, thank you for a great friend, I look forward to see you guys again
and maybe getting another puppy from you. Thank you so

Mark & Traci,
My family is
completely blessed to have purchased one of Charlie and
Our dog “Chester” is
a great all around pet, as a worker in the field and as
a companion for our family.
Your 4 month training program was well worth the money.
When I got Chester back after his training, I was
completely amazed with his hunting abilities and what a
14 month old pup could actually do. I run a pheasant
hunting operation here in South Dakota, so I needed a
well trained dog and I got just that! When guiding this
last fall, the hunters couldn’t believe he was only 15
months old, smart, disciplined, and full of energy.
Hunters shot more
than 250 pheasants over Chester this fall and he loved
retrieving every one of them.
As you can tell I
am completely satisfied with this dog and I will be in
touch with you about getting another one.

I have a dog out of your kennel. TLC'S KAMIKAZE'S
APOLLO. This has got to be the best bird dog I have
ever hunted with. From dove, duck, goose pheasant, and quail, he is a
water dog deluxe and one of the best upland dogs to ever hit my
area. I could have sold this dog a hundred times.
Enough bragging, you know what I'm talking about! I'm
looking for a female kennel mate and girlfriend for Apollo.
I would love to breed him and retain his qualities in his
puppies. I thought you may have puppies with his qualities
and brains. Thank You.
