|Here are a few letters and photos from our customers who have

|Belle will be one year old on Jan 1. She
is doing great. Sue and I are very pleased with her
maturity, behavior, capability, ability and retrieving
skills. I have been involved in a lot of pheasant hunting
this year and she has been right along side the entire time.
She has retrieved well over 100 pheasants, some quail
and a few ducks. No major problems with her and very
few minor challenges. As typical of a lab she wants to do
the right thing. We are promoting your kennel in the Tulsa
area and to anybody that will listen when they ask
about quality labradors.
You will recall that you
sold me a yellow female lab a little over a year ago. I had her
trained locally (so that I could be trained as well).
I can say that she is everything that I had hoped for and
exactly what I wanted! She weighs about 53 pounds and is a
hunting machine. Even at this young age, she has
demonstrated her strengths in the field: boundless energy and
the ability to spot birds down and find them. She does not give
up, and her good nose helps find the tougher birds. She responds
very well to commands and has a wonderful, friendly
I made a difficult decision to neuter
her. I really wanted to keep some of that blood, but I am
not a breeder and it wouldn't make much sense for me to
get another pup right now. So, I hope I can rely on you to
keep up the good work. I will no doubt be calling you in several
years looking for another perfect lab to compliment Suzie.

Mark & Traci,
Just thought I would drop you a line and let you know
that "Logan Monster" is doing well. He is one of
Charlie's pups from the 6/03 litter and was brought up
here to Northern Michigan. He is already 63 lbs, whistle
trained, and a great dog. He's picked up pheasant and
partridge hunting very well. Attached is a picture from
his first time pheasant hunting this past 1/2/04.
Hopefully he'll be out retrieving duck's this fall. It
is scary how smart he is.
Hope all is going well and thanks again.

Dear Traci and Mark,
Now that it is 10 degrees outside and hunting season is
coming to an end, I am finally getting a chance to sit down
at the computer and go through all the pictures we took this
fall. We had a great time out in the field with Parker this
year, he did excellent for his first year of pheasant
hunting!! He is now 1year and 6 months old. We worked with
him prior to the season using some dead birds but when the
season finally opened and we got him out in the field and he
flushed his first live bird, Boy! Was He Excited!!! From
then on whenever he caught that scent he'd get that "Birdy"
look to him and it didn't take him long at all before he was
flushing more birds then we could shoot!
The first couple of times or so he'd be great at flushing
the birds but he wouldn't pick them up or hold them in his
mouth. He would run to where the bird landed then just stop
and look at the bird and then look back at us. Then all of a
sudden one day it seemed to just click and he did it
perfectly, flushed the bird, retrieved it and came back to
heel and held it perfect!!!
He is amazing! He is so very well behaved and learns so
fast! He is definitely spoiled. I get heck for letting him
on the couch and the bed, my husband says, "What kind of
hunting dog is he supposed to be anyway?!" (But I know he
likes having him to snuggle with too by the big smile on his
face as he laughs every time Parker lays a big wet one on
Parker has brought so much joy to our lives since he came.
He is definitely loved more than he will ever know!!
I've attached some pictures from this year's pheasant
season. It was a slow year for grouse here and we only got
out a couple of times. Deer season is pretty slow this year
as well. Jason can't wait for next fall to get here so he
and Parker can get out pheasant hunting again!!!
Take care and Have a
Very Merry Christmas!!!

These are some of the geese he retrieved opening day of the
2003 early goose season in SD. Last year when he was just a
pup he retrieved doves, ducks, and was responsible for 30-40
Mark and Traci,
We just wanted to take this
opportunity to tell you how wonderful our dog is.
She is six years old now and I'm sorry we haven't
written before. I always think about doing it, but
never have. As you can see, she is about the most
beautiful dog we have ever seen. When we'd be out
walking, people would offer money to buy her
from us and/or pay us to use her for breeding
She is from Cosmo and Golden Yellow Oaks
(I think that's the mom). We bought her because of her
excellent blood line, and thought we would use her to
hunt. Maddy does go out occasionally, and though she's
never had formal training, you can tell that the hunting
instinct is very natural for her. She is unbelievably
smart! Needless to say I fell in love with her and would
not let her leave my side. So instead of a field champion,
she is our champion at home. After 3 years of being with
us, we had our daughter, Alexa, who was born 2 months
premature. Madison was so wonderful with our daughter and
helped out in ways you could not imagine - especially when
we had to do physical therapy. She is Alexa's best playmate
and has taken all the abuse toddlers give out without even a
sigh. We have enjoyed her tremendously and would never
dream of buying a lab anywhere else. Thank you for such a
Darrell, Jennifer and Alexa Callahan

Just wanted to let you know that Mac got his Junior Hunter
title this past weekend, the day after his first birthday.
I have been thrilled with him. We are working on
steadiness, doubles, and just started handling drills. He
picks up everything very quickly. He is a bundle of
retrieving desire. Thanks for a great dog.
Dozer is a million bucks. I
cannot tell you how wonderful he has turned out. He
probably did 400 retrieves for me out in South Dakota and
about 200 geese here in Michigan. We have a 3 y.o. little
boy whose job it is to feed "ozer" his food. Dozer is so
gentle to him, it's amazing.
