Fester-Sara/Jack-Southern Shores,N.C.-Fester is the most handsome boy you'd lay eyes on! He
is a great dog and very lovable. He loves to cuddle and play on the beach with his buddy Roxy the great dane. He gets
to see his sister Coffee all the time. She just lives up the road. She's a great dog,very smart and obedient. Thanks again
for our great dogs.

Fester-This is Jack and Sara Baumer. We bought a puppy from you 3
years ago! Fester....he was born Feburary 1,2006, along with his sister Coffee that Jack's parents bought at the same time
from the same litter. We saw a dog that resembled Fester that was 10 months old and we heard them talk about the grandfather
Bear...and they looked just like your dogs! So it reminded us to send some updated pics of Fester. He's 3 now and still a
wonderful dog! Everyone always complement on how handsome he is. Fester listens real well and most definetely is a great retreiver!!
Fester-A spitting image of his papa,Bear.

Wanted to let
you know Louie is doing well and has adapted easily to his new surroundings. He went to the vet today,he weighs 27 pounds
and was well behaved. He has had several play dates with other labs(one across the street now thinks this is his 2nd home)
and he is adjusting well to our 2 small yorkies. Louie has the best disposition and keeps us laughing. Thank you so much for
such a great dog.
Buxton-aka-"THE BUDDHA"-Collette,Mitch,and Dan Freeland-Greensboro,N.C.-We wanted to
share some pictures of Buxton from Carolina and Duke's 1st litter. He is our 4th lab through the years and
by far the calmest....and he is oh so sweet. We've nicknamed him the baby buddha because he had such a round belly as
a little one. Thanks for such a wonderful puppy!

DJ-Alex,Whitney,Rick Heyward-Suffolk,Va.-Hi tTm! I hope all is well with you. Checked out
your website and it looks like you have your hands full with all the beautiful puppies. Sorry we have not updated you on DJ
sooner,all has been hectic here. We found out the day after DJ came home that we are expecting baby #2,so life is definitely
full. DJ is wonderful-he is very loving,sweet,and gentle with Alex,but give him a soccer ball and watch out! He's
a mad-man! He looks and acts so very much like his dad,Bear,that it is unreal. He has been perfectly healthy since we brought
him home and now weighs a little over 40 pounds at 5 months. We can't believe how well behaved he is most of the time.
Now,don't get me wrong-he has his daily spells of puppy madness,but we love him for those too. Just thought I would include
a couple of phpts of him playing soccer,the aftermath of his digging in the mud,and a pic of he and Alex. they truly are best
friends-it's amazing what trouble the two of them can get into when left alone for even a minute. I swear they can talk
to each other and say "hey you wanna do x or y even though mom's gonna be sooo mad?! Anyway take care and thanks
for giving us a great dog!
Alex and DJ-1st meeting in Jarvisburg.
Alex and DJ-Dress up time!
DJ-Soccer anyone? I'm looking for you Frisco!
DJ-What lab can resist a mud puddle? Another Bear look alike!
Quoddy Star and Virginia Dare-Midnight and Duke's daughters-Thomas Amos and Julie Suojaren-New
York,N.Y.-8 Weeks Old. 11-06.
Quoddy and Virginia-Wake up girls!
Quoddy and Ginny-Julie Suojanen and Thomas Amos-New York,N.y.-We
got Quoddy and Ginny(born Sept.'06) from you back in 06. We brought them home at nine weeks to New York City. The "girls"
have been wonderful! We were fortunate to live a block away from Riverside Park(along the Hudson River) and very,very close
to a large fenced doggy play area. As a result they had lots of exercise and fun and became very socialized to other
dogs and people. Now we live in Westchester County and have a big fenced-in yard they can safely romp in 'round the clock.
Quoddy and Ginny are really happy together and ridiculously cute. Here are some pics of them walking on the Upper West Side
of Manhattan in May '07,where we first lived with them. They've now filled out and look great. Happy New Year.

Thanks for everything. You keep the website updated so well,we have loved watching them all grow through the pics. Charley
is doing wonderful! The drive home was a success...she didn't get sick at all...she mostly slept the entire time. She
is housebreaking beautifully...no accidents yet. Her little personality is unfolding more each day and we
couldn't be happier. Chew and Charley are snuggling buddies already. Thanks again for your hospitality this weekend. We
truely enjoyed our time with your family. Charley-10.5 weeks old-01-09-2008.
Charley-10.5 weeks old-looking for another snow drift. Carolina and
Charley and Chewbacca-Little Charley darling is doing great! She
is full of life and loves Chewbacca. She has experienced three snows and loves to dive into a snow drift. She is doing great
potty training,can sit,retrieve and drop the ball,and can shake 2 out of 5 times...haha....she would rather kiss you than
shake your hand. She and Chewey seem to always be carrying a stick or ball around...and they are always side by side. Charley
has been a joy to have and has made such a great addition to our family. And did I mention how much she LOVES Chewbacca? Hope
you and your dogs are doing great! Enjoy the pics! Maranda
