Just wanted to drop you a line to know how Duggie (Murphy) Gunner Mocha 08 is doing. He loves walks in the woods. Saturday he was chasing turkeys when we were out. He loves to be around people and other dogs. He has a black lab friend named Dash he gets to play with about once a week. All the people that see him complement how good he looks. The one neighbor thinks he should be a puppy model. When we were expanding our Koi pond he was right there helping dig, and drinking the water when we were filling it up. He loves to play Frisbee. He is getting good at catching them in the air. And he is always up for playing ball.

"Looks like a spoiled boy to us" (pup from Angel x Gunner)
For those of you considering a puppy from Family Loved Labs; we now own two Labrador Retrievers from Family Loved Labs and they are great additions/members of our family. I just cannot say enough about Family Loved Labs. They have a great breeding program with established Sires and Dams that yield quality dogs in terms of health and disposition. We were very skeptical buying over the internet as we had had a previous experience that did not go well. I called Family Loved Labs and spoke to Rosie. She was extremely knowledgeable about not only the breed, but matching the right temperament with the gaining family. Rosieï¿½s in depth knowledge allowed her to match the personality of the puppy based on the answers we provided in a few phone conversations.
Rosie fit our family with Sidney aka Sydney (Booker /Sadie Litter 2007) and he is exactly as she described. We could not have been more pleased when Sidney arrived. He was absolutely beautiful. I even heard one of the handlers at the airline say hey I want a dog like this- He's so calm. Sidney is now almost 2 years old and will test for his AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate in January 2009. Sidney is a quick study and very adaptable to changing situations. He is a very social dog and is well balanced. He is as happy hanging around at your feet as he is trekking across the Mojave Desert. He has become very trail savvy and my husband enjoys their hikes together. We could not have been blessed with a better dog.
We enjoy Sidney so much that we added another one of Rosieï¿½s puppies to our family this past October. Gunner Jr. (Gunner/Mocha litter 2007) came to us at 15 months old and made the transition to a new home well. Gunner is a focused high energy dog that wants to please his master. We are continuing to help him learn the house rules and he is progressing nicely. I was pleasantly surprised at how quick he is to pick up on commands. He is a very instinctive retriever and extremely fast. Once again, Gunner was exactly as Rosie described him. Gunner will be starting intermediate obedience training this coming February 2009 as we want him to achieve his AKC Canine Good Citizen Certificate too. He is well on his way to earning it.
Rosie makes it so easy to purchase a pup and the care and socialization that each pup receives from this family only makes the transition from their home to yours so much easier. I was hesitant to have a puppy flown to us, but now that I have had 2 flown to us I can say that it was easy. Rosie takes you through every step of the process. They were so relaxed when we received them at the airport and they acted like they belonged with us from the beginning. The paperwork process and transference was a no brainer for us. Family Loved Labs also provides great support to you as a new owner after youï¿½ve gotten the puppy.
We enjoy our dogsï¿½ companionship and watching them mature into great dogs of their breed. The investment in time has been well worth the experience and they are wonderful family dogs and additions to our family. We hope that if you are considering adding a Labrador to your family that you choose Family Loved Labs as you will not be disappointed.

I'll send some more shortly - we'll get one of Kai, Joe and I when we are all together again in a few days. She's doing GREAT!! Everyone in my family loves her and she is just the sweetest, most lovable little girl!

I just wanted to thank you for making our adoption of Duggie such a pleasant experience. The weekly pictures and e-mails made the weeks of waiting for our Duggie a much more exciting experience
What a wonderful day it was when we arrived at the airport. Just as you said, the airport pickup process was quick and easy. Iï¿½ll never forget seeing him for the first time when we took him out of his crate. It was love at first sight.
Duggie is everything you would want in a lab, or any other dog. He is beautiful, extremely smart, well behaved, and has a wonderful temperament. He is everything we wanted and more. We constantly get compliments from everyone who sees him. The experience we had with you was great. We would recommend it to anyone, and would do it again in a heartbeat.
Here are some more pictures of our pride and joy!

Long time since I have been in touch. I had to get a new camera, sorry for the delay. He is such an amazing dog......We love him very much. He is doing great and starting to get along with the cats :)....
He is very smart and loveable. He is so affectionate with me. He loves to be hugged and kissed. He is so playful and friendly. I thought I would show you a picture of when he was little and how he looks now. The pictures are from this weekend. I will continue to be in touch. I promised your daughter I would.

Great job on the webpage! We bought Ginger from you guys this summer. She is from Gunner & Mocha's litter in May. She is doing great and we love her so much! She is smart and learns pretty quick. She is a bundle of energy and goofy right now ;-)) We have a yellow lab named Bella and she is always trying to get her to play. Most of the time Bella cooperates. They have become great buddies! Our son Noah is loving the two of them alot! They are his snuggle buddies at night. We have a new baby grandson too and Ginger loves to smell him and sometimes wants to nibble his hands. We have to hold her back but I'm sure that they will be buddies too. Please tell your mom I said Hello. She was so helpful while we were waiting for Ginger to be ready to come home. You guys have something really special at Family Loved Labs! I look at your site occasionally just to see your puppies. You have such beautiful puppies! I have included some pictures from this summer. I will send more pictures soon. She has grown alot and she is almost as tall as Bella.

We are SO happy with Sandy! She's doing great, she's so calm and peaceful indoors, and a ton of fun outdoors! She's everything you said she'd be. She is super good with the kids, she loves sitting with them and watching TV. My teenager and her are very close, she sits by his feet when he's on the computer, and jumps up on his bed when he's playing his video games. They love chasing each around in the backyard and he likes taking her to the park across the street. Minnie didn't really get along with Sandy in the beginning, but now they're getting along just fine. We are just SO glad we picked her. Here are some pictures

He's doing very well. He loved going to Canada. He made good friends with my mom's dog. I think he likes him cause he is just his size. He's very well behaved. Still working on the potty training, he'll get there. Anyway, I've enclosed some photos.

again. I felt really comfortable buying a puppy from you without even
seeing it in person. You really care about your dogs and it shows!
Caliber is such a good dog!
I will keep you updated! Jill

Dr. Jeff adorable (almost) 12 year old daughter, Brianna, and the prized pup. Phoenix (Superman) is also being socialized with Jeff patients in preparation to becoming a true therapy dog.
Phoenix is 19 pounds and looking quite strapping. His behavior is perfect. He handles the crate so well. When he get a little overactive in session, I am able to put him in. No fuss. He just goes to sleep. Very mellow guy. I need to send you a pic of the two dogs now playing tug-of war. He continues to get rave reviews! Jeff
