Retired Dogs

Jenna

Our beginning and mother to many of our sweet girls, Jenna taught us a lot and we enjoyed learning and loving this girl. Though I never thought I would place her sometimes that special person and home comes along. She is loved and spoiled now enjoying her life as a companion to a gentleman in a wheelchair. We thank the Bennetts for loving our girl.

Tessa

Tessa we imported from Bulgaria as a pup, we were very excited about her and having some new & different lines. We did show her a little but unfortunately when it came time for her OFA finals she did not pass so we felt it was best to place her. She now spends her time greeting new friends at a Bed & Breakfast in Vermont. We can’t thank Marcia enough for giving her a loving forever home.

Rashel

Daughter of Jenna, sister to Keller she was only shown as a pup, she had one litter for us when someone came to meet another girl I was placing and fell in love with her. Not being a show dog and having her sister and now a daughter to continue with, we decided to allow her to start her wonderful life as a spoiled couch dog. We thank Pumpkin for loving and taking such good care of her.

Keller

Daughter of Jenna, sister to Rashel, I called her my silly devil dog. She’d sneak up on you, then pounce with her paws stretched out like fingers as if to say Aaarrhhh Hi!  Her energy and animation showed nicely in the ring when shown we had fun trying out field work with her too. She is living the country life with horses, donkeys, chickens, peacocks, and her new brother “Knightley” to play with, but cuddles in the evenings with her new owner Ginny & Nod. Thanks for loving and giving our silly girl a forever home.

Freshy

All my dogs KNOW and LOVE pizza and the pizza delivery person, so we always wanted to use that at some point. She got her nickname right from the start, always the freshest pup in her litter so, “Freschetta” it was! She was a sweet, happy girl who is now loved and enjoying her retired life with the Gallahers.

Dove

Daughter of our Peanut, she was placed with another breeder as a pup. Situations changed, and she came home to us. Sweet and loving like her mother with a good structure and beautiful coat, but one cannot forget that cute zipper down her nose. Dove is now enjoying retired life in New Hampshire with the Johnson family and reunited with her littermate sister, Lucy that they purchased as a pup.

Penny

Daughter of our boy Koda, she has many of her father’s traits, including that want/need of love from her people. When younger she tried Dockdogs and fieldwork. Even with her absolute love and drive for a ball, she just wasn’t too sure on it, wanting to stay by my side instead! She is now enjoying a spoiled life as a couch dog. We can’t thank the McDonoughs enough for loving Penny.

Candy

Daughter of our Rashel who we shared with a close breeder friend (Gayle of Candy Acres Labradors), who completed a beginner hunt training with her. As part of our agreement, Candy has come back to stay with us. Candy loves to sit up on her hind legs with paws up for attention–especially for cuddles with grandma!

Bella

Our ‘kissy kissy’ girl who forever wiggles, wrapping herself around you, walking directly in front of you using her tail to whack you as she looks up at you licking her lips (her way of kissing). She loves to give kisses yet sometimes plays hard to get by turning her head away when you want that kiss … so silly! Though never a show dog, she’s produced nicely for us giving us beautiful children to continue with.

Peanut

Our Nutter Butter and Queen Cuddles … the runt of her litter (one would never know that now) who turned out to be my Pick-puppy. She loves to think she’s still that little puppy to this day. If your lap is empty, it won’t be for long! Even though she shows very little, at her first show spring 2011 — a specialty show held by our local Lab Club — she made the cut in a very large class and then placed 4th. One would have thought she won the whole show by our excitement! She may hit the ring again for her veteran years, but for now, she’s our resident couch/chair hog.
