I'd just like to say you have some lovely dogs - my husband and I had the pleasure of taking care of one of your pups (now three yrs) over the past four months for a friend.
About two years ago we had been looking getting a lab (my husband's childhood buddy, a big yellow guy had passed away), and your kennel had been of interest to us. At that time we were still students and lived in Ontario, so we decided to hold off on getting a dog until we figured things out a bit more. We lived in Nova Scotia for the past year, which is where we met Sue, the black lab, and her owner, whom we were hunting with (since we don't have a dog yet!) up in Canning and Cape Split. We were sad to see Sue go home, as she is a great dog, but we also know that she is super happy at home and that her owner loves her very much.
We've recently moved home to Ontario, as we are now finished with schooling. I know Sue was born March 21, 2008 - so from that I have deduced that your Pat is her sister. Right now I am just simply curious as to whether you'll be breeding Pat maybe within the next two years? Also, do you take deposits, etc? Depending on timing, etc, we would be able to make the drive out to get the pup, but I am also wondering if you ship/fly them out at all?
I didn't want to make this too long winded, but I do have a few more questions I'll save for later. Again, you have some beautiful dogs, and we love your mandate of health, behaviour and abilities being most important. If it isn't obvious, we hunt and fish all year round, and for those times when the seasons are closed we are out canoeing and camping and very active.

Sorry, no more pictures of Tally yet. It has not been a good week. Tally
can compete with Tucker for weight, but probably not in sheer roundness. She
is quite leggy. I don't have spring bulbs in the garden, and we are still
under two feet of snow, but I found her eating daffodil bulbs. I can only
think that the squirrels might have brought them in from our neighour, who
has lots of pots, or from his giant stinking rubbish heap in the garden.
She had definitely eaten some, and I think that Oka had too. I tried
peroxide but could not get him to vomit, so we whizzed off to the vets to
get some hydromorphone. Which, obviously, worked. Oka felt very sorry for
himself. I am very glad that I did, though, because Tally brought up at
least three bulbs, way more than would be needed to kill her. So we stuffed
them with activated charcoal, and now sulcrate and pepcid, just to protect
their gi tracts. They are going to be fine, though. I was more concerned
about Tally because of her lower body mass. Fortunately, if I can use the
word in this context, she had not long eaten, so her stomach was a little
protected, and I was also at the vets within 15 minutes of it happening.
The vet and the techs are completely in love with her, by the way!
House full of people dropping by all day today, I am quite yawny. Nice to
have good friends here, though.
Hope you are well,
Hi Don I wanted you to be the first to know that our Noah got his first point today.
He went winners dog and then beat out the male special to win Best of Opposite Sex!! He moves and stacks beautifully- the only issue is with examining his mouth and today he just went totally crazy just bouncing around all over the place. Got to work some more on this.
I have entered tomorrow as well, so lets see how that goes :-)

Hope all is well. Tucker is doing really good. We have our vet appointment this Friday for the second set of needles. When we take Tucker out for a walk, at about every 20 feet, we command him to stop, sit, stay & come. When a car goes by, we make him sit while it passes. He is doing really good, and quite pleased with him. Travis and I are always watching him to ensure that he isn't chewing anything he shouldn't be. He LOVES the meat bones from the grocery store. Here are some pictures, and you will see that he is well loved and pampered in some pictures. He doesn't mind being held like a baby.
