Tate update

Hey there Don,

Leigh Ann here. I wanted to let you know we had to say good-bye to Tate last week. She was almost 11 years old, puppy of Mud and Lucas, and we had the most amazing 11 years with her. She developed severe bowel disease and possible lymphoma, so we made the decision to get her euthanized. She was the best dog we could have ever imagined, healthy and happy right up to the last couple of months.

I hope all is well with you, and I hope you know every puppy you release to the world brings so much love and joy.

Take care,

Leigh Ann and Lor

Tikka is growing fast and learning lots.

Olive is getting braver with the calves!

Couple of pics of Finch

I, Don,

We have a beautiful, sweet, loyal chocolate lab from you.  Her name is Finch and she brings us such happiness day after day.  We have been recently talking about possibly having another lab.  Can you let us know if you have any expected over the next few months? We'd be happy to chat with you and bring Finch along.

Photo of Isla at 15 months.

Hi Don,

Here's a photo of Isla at 15 months. She has a smile just like her father, Dex and enjoys every single day. She weighs in at lean 58 lbs, which is nice considering she needs to be at the top of her game because we're in the woods so often. All is well!


Gems mishap here on the Cape

Hi Don,

Thought I send a pic of miss Gems mishap yesterday here on the Cape.

Mr frost pushing up more glass for us to find. Gems & Rye were playing and running around and Gems slice her pad really good on a piece of glass.   

Trip to the vet, stitches and bandage up for 14 days.. Gems is very insulted of her new look and she hates the head cone..

Never a dull moment in the life of a labrador .. lol...

Still has puppy eyes!

A few shots from the weekend. Got out for our first camp of the year. Merlin
gets sooky for his couch in the evenings and sleeps directly on top of me in
the tent which is great for warmth but not so much for finding a comfortable
sleeping position!!

Our Boy Bruce is amazing

Good Evening Don,

Our Boy Bruce is amazing. He is such a wonderful pup. Loves the outdoors and his walks in the woods. We can’t wait to introduce him to camping next weekend! 
I have attached a few recent pictures of him. He is a very handsome boy and he knows it ;)

Have a great weekend,


Willow update

 Hi Pierrette and Don,

I took Willow for a walk on the Musquodoboit Trailway this afternoon and thought I would share a few pictures with you lol  She sure LOVES going for walks, and just loves being outdoors! I'm sure she'll sleep good tonight! 😉 She is now almost 15 months old and I think she's just the perfect size!

Camo in the snow (video)

Hi Don, 

This video was taken the day Camo turned 5 months old. Her obedience is exceptionally good, her health is great, and she’s great with the family. She is a spitting image of Lu. This is a great dog.
Best wishes,

Spud and Rundell

Hi Don,

Spud is not normally on the sofa. But Rundell was sleeping. I put Spud up on top of him.

Spud is doing well. He’s growing. And exploring forest and field; training for his future as a hunting dog.

Remi's first canoe trip

Hello Don and Pierette,

First time in a while sending along any photos but I thought this one was worthy.
We had remi out for his first ever canoe trip this past Saturday. He had never been in a canoe or boat before, or even seen a canoe I believe up until that day. I certainly believe he is born to be in or on the water at all times. Crawled right in the canoe and sat down, even laying down at one point but that didn’t last long, he couldn’t see anything ! Haha

He’s definitely a treasured part of my life now, and we’ll have many more adventures like this for sure.

This Dog’s Final Wish Is Going Viral and It’s Sure to Make You Cry

They say all dogs go to heaven and we’re convinced there’s a special place behind the pearly white gates for one German Shepherd named Gretchen. The dog’s final wish before she passed away is going viral and it’s sure to bring a tear to your eye.

Read more:

After reading this story wanted to share it, and share thoughts of our girl Sable.  When Sable died, our Mailman knocked on our door and asked “Where is my friend?”.  Our Vet also wrote a condolence letter, 2 pages both sides about how much Sable meant to his whole practice.


Janette is a lady in New York with MS.  She got Sable from me as a service dog, a pup from Roo/Beau, born 4 Aug 05.  We have maintained close contact ever since, a great lady that had a great dog!

Pup pics

Pics of Tilly

Hi Don,

Here are couple of photos of Tilly on the way to our cottage on Sunday. It’s hard to take a good photo of a black dog. She enjoys the boat, getting more comfortable each time we go there, on the way back she was sitting on a seat and could look all around. She enjoys the freedom of cottage life, she’s the only dog on the island and stays pretty close to us. She hasn’t ventured into the water, but I suspect this summer she’ll be swimming with us as she doesn’t like being left out. She’s a great dog, and all the family love her. Training is coming along, recall needs work for sure but we keep at it every day.

pHope all is well with you,
