Hey Don,

Here are some pictures of Casey. He is actually as nice a dog as he looks in the photo's. The kids love him,especially my daughter, and he fits in perfectly with the family. As you can tell he has the run of the house (the sofa he's sitting on was delivered about 6-7 hours prior to the picture being taken). He seems to like his crate and he's catching on to the house training (most of the time).

By the way, he LOVES to run. When we go to the park he either wants to sit and look at you (as you call to him) or run at full tilt.

He's a great puppy and I can see he's going to be a fantastic dog.

I want to tell everyone about my wonderful Black Lab, Sable!

I have Multiple Sclerosis, and today is not one of my better days but, Sable is a wonderful companion.

She has been trained to pick up and give me things that I keys, glasses, my cane, and just about anything. Sable was trained at C & G K-9 School.

When I dropped a box, and with out asking Sable picked it up. She even gave me a tea bag that fell to the floor.

She paces herself to walk next to me, almost as if she has been glued to my leg. She is very attentive & Intelligent, those are things Pro felt I needed.

Sable walks next to me, even when she is not on a leash. It is almost as if she is glued to my leg.

Right now, As I went up stairs to this computer... She followed me & is laying about 2 feet behind me.

My son Clark, just walked over her to get something, then back again...she didn't move. Sable is staying with me.

My Dear Friend Jessie kept Sable for several months of 'puppy boot Camp'. She taught her how to behave in public;

The grocery store, Post Office, the Mall & Restaurants.

Then she went to C & G Canine school and they 'finished' her very well.

I cannot Thank or Praise them enough...

But Sables Breeder Don Bates from DOINDOGS KENNEL deserves some of the credit, too. Don is a great breeder of Labrador Retrievers.

His Dogs are smart, eager to please & wonderful companions. I Highly recommend this Kennel.

I am grateful to all of these people. I am very happy with my Sable. I do need help around the house....Sable is eager to help me!

Wonderful pup

Hey Don,

We wanted to send you a thank you for the wonderful pup. We are very pleased with her. She has made "leaps" with her crate training already with only one week at home!

We all want to express our gratitude for allowing us "all" into your home so willingly for visits. You both showed great kindness to our three children during those times. Brook seems to be as happy with us as we are with her! She was very shy the first day we brought her home. Since then she hasn't looked back. She is one of the family!

Hi there, just wanted to drop you a line or two to update you on Daytona girl....she's defenately growing!! I wonder if she's ever going to stop! she sprawls out on out coach her toes are at one end and her nose at the other!...she's the largest lab we have ever owned, even larger than our male! We absolutely love her! and couldn't be more happy with her! She is the most affectionate Lab we have ever owned and a loyal companion already...

We took her on a moose hunting trip with us up in the highlands of Cape Breton this past October, She got to see her first a hoot that was! she was sooo scared at first,(hid under the truck) then she finally came around and got "nose to nose" with

She is listening very well, however I think she needs to get out in the public more... she seems a bit timid around people she doesn't know, as well as other dogs(she's scared) . I've got to work on this one with her...

Thanks again for her! We absolutely LOVE our Daytona girl!!

Bahrain Bound

Good morning Don,

I did receive your email as well as the attachments, I'll fill out the Purchase Agreement and return it to you on Saturday morning. Thank you so much for approving our adoption by Rose's remaining female pup, she will not regret it. Wendy and I are, after all, committed lab people having gone through a memorable 13 year journey with our beloved (yellow) lab, Cooper whom, sadly, we lost back in 2001 and, although we currently live with a wonderful and extremely docile Dogue De Bordeaux named Spencer, a great personality and, incidentally, the most photographed dog in Bahrain, we had been agonizing for some time about having another lab in the family. When Rod told us about the planned new addition to his family and how impressed he was with your operation (and you personally), we felt it was high time for us to re-visit the issue. Then Rod then told us that maybe, just maybe there is still one pup left and we simply could not resist! Your website is most impressive and, like Rod, we both feel that we could not have made a better choice. On the financial side, I am happy to transfer the advance to you directly, alternatively and as per you email, I'll be happy sort this out with Rod who will bring the whole amount due with him when he travels to Canada in early December so many thanks for that.

Once again, our sincere thanks!

Best regards

Steve & Wendy Meyrick
