Retrievers came back into my life on a warm Easter Sunday in 1998. On this
fateful day, I decided to give a lonely little yellow lab pup a two week trial.
Twelve and a half years later, God called her home.The pain is real
and the hole is deep but, this is Oat's story and her extended family will

Oats was not only
my buddy, she was mother & grandmother to all our dogs.
She was my second hand when it came to farm work. I couldn't do my
farm chores without her! She passed all her displaysia tests, was
certified "Good" and had her eyes "Cleared" annually. This wonderful yellow
female weighed in at a hefty 55 lbs and had a small solid build. Oats
had wonderful retrieving skills, targeted birds on the ground/air, loved the
water, a lively mouse hunt and herded my young weanling
horses and goats into the barn when needed. Bring out a gun, and
she was ready to find the vermin! Oats produced her
last litter - sired by the late, Mistyfield March To The Beat - on: April
There were 7 puppies: 4 boys and 3 girls. She LOVED being a
mom! Thank you Oats for giving
your all and leaving us with the most wonderful memories.

Uno, ready to go!
Uno at rest - summer of 2005
the soul puppy of her litter; hence the name, Uno. She matured very quickly and
loved playing tuggy with a rope and would carry her "prized" Wiggley
Jiggley ball everywhere. Uno was a small dog weighing in at an average weight of
only 5o pds. She was a super fast learner and felt iit was her job to stay with
her person, no matter where they went. This was a wonderful asset when we
started learning the game of agility. She took to it like it was water. What a
run we had!
home on the farm, Uno enjoyed long swims in the dog pond where she would paddle
around for hours watching dragonflies. When asked about going for a ride,
she was ready for either the truck, car or the farm Prowler. Gosh the Prowler
was a huge source of entertainment (for us humans) because in doggie language,
it that meant we were going "Deer Hunting". God forbid if we saw one!
The Labrador pack would howl like a pack of Coyotes with Uno's high pitched
squeal of excitement leading it!
produced 3 litters for us. One of these litters was a single birth, just like
hers. From her last litter (2009), we kept a yellow daughter, Island
Dos. Dos is carrying on for her mother and reminds us everyday of
just how special this side of the family is.
Uno's Limited Show Record: Aug. 2006 - almost one year from her
first agility lesson, she garnered both her AKC Novice Agility
Titles in 20' division and one High Point Labrador Retriever Award
(Standard Division) at: The Greater Boston Labrador Retriever Club trial! 2007 - Uno earned her AKC Open
JWW Title and is one "Q" away from her Open Standard.
She received another, High Point Labrador Retriever Award (Jumper
With Weaves Division) at: The Greater Boston Labrador Retriever Club trial, for the second year
in a row! Way to go Uno!
Trialing for the 2008 agility
season was very light. High gas prices & large traveling distances
were the main reasons. 2009 was another light year as Uno
had a litter of pups in March. In the fall of 2009 Uno tried a
few CPE Agility Trials. We both had a fun time, met a lot of new friends/dogs
and earned a lot of "Q's". Uno even won a CPE
On April 23, 2011
at the BOTC Agility trial, Uno, at 8 yrs of age, finished her
AKC Open Agility Title! Her latest feat was earning her AKC CGC Title. She
accomplished this at the place of her training, Waggles LLC in Dec.
Sadly on Dec. 31, 2013 I had to say farewell to my wonderful Uno.
She fought so hard and didn't want to leave but; God had decided to call
her home. There was nothing I could do except honor His wishes
and say good bye.
Dog of my heart, Rest In Peace.

is a daughter of Oats. She is the "Hunter" of the group
and is all water dog! Mousing, birding and swimming are her first
loves in life. She hunts with purpose and never fails to find
'something'. Ask her if she'd like to go swimming, and her eyes light up
and her hackles get stiff! She just LOVES to swim! Harley's hips are certified
"Good", and her eyes are checked annually. To date, Harley has
had 4 healthy litters. Her last litter was whelped on Jan.
1, 2011. We are retiring her from the whelping box. Her daughter, Island Breeze

Brie is a
smart, quiet dog and a daughter of Island Harley - making
her a granddaughter to our dearly departed, Oats. Brie is a sight to behold! She
is not only a quick learner with a laid back disposition, she's
an excellent retriever, enjoys long swims in the dog pond and adores
a Saturday morning truck ride to the local store! Brie has a pretty
head, nice length of neck, correct shoulders, short back and a tail that won't
stop wagging! She has matured into a beautiful, very stout dog and weighs
in at 60-65 lbs. She is what we were hoping to breed when we first
started. She is the watch dog of the group and will alert us to anything
that isn't right.
Brie produced 3 litters for us. She has been retired
from the whelping box. Her mother duties have been passed on to her daughter,
Island Duchess.She does
enjoy watching and playing with any of the puppies that are born here - as long
as they don't take her Frisbee!

Dos was a daughter of
our agility Champion, Island Uno. Dos's sire, was
an AKC Champion who also had a Rally Obedience Title. One of
the key factors in keeping Dos was the age of her sire and grandmother
(Oats). We love our "Drummer & Oat" girls and wanted one more! Dos was
a tad bigger than our other "Drummer" daughters but what a joy to behold!
She was a great fetcher and toy 'thief' - which we believe she learned
from her 1/2 sister Harley. Dos loved to swim, go for hunting runs in the
fields, adored a truckon Saturdays to the local store, or Prowler ride
around the farm. She could find an apple or pear when it fell from one
of our trees, no matter where it landed! She LOVED her
In 2011, Dos went to school for agility. She did great and was a
fast learner. Unfortunately, due to my work schedule, we never got the
chance to compete. Early in 2013, she earned her AKC Title for: Canine Good
Early on the morning of August 14, 2017
Dos produced her last litter of 6 healthy yellow puppies - 2 girls and 4
boys. The proud father was: Belquest Doing It For The Ladies
(aka Dew). This was the 3rd time for this cross and
WHAT a litter it was! Dos really out did herself and boy, did she ever LOVE
these puppies. We believe she knew they would be her last and she
would be "Officially Retired" from the whelping box.
Thank-you to all our clients and the many
"Return Customers" who had asked for this litter to be produced.

On Dec.15, 2017 tragedy struck us full
force. Out of the blue, God called this beautiful soul back home. We are
shocked, stunned and just plain heartbroken. Nothing but time, will
soften the pain or shock of her passing. She will live on through her daughter
Island Jada and her grandaughter, Island Samantha.

Your memory and the joy you brought, shall
live on through your offspring.
Run with glee, snapping jaws and your

you again, one day.

Duchess is the culmination of all our original dogs rolled into one. She is a daughter of Island Breeze, making her a granddaughter of Island Harley and a great granddaughter, to our original yellow female, Oats. She also has ties to Island Uno & Island Dos. Her sire is the well known and very good looking, CH Lobuff Hollyridge Osprey. Needless to say, Duchess has some BIG paws to fill!
Duchess is a stout, medium sized dog. She has excellent bone, a ton of coat, a pretty head, nice deep chest and a Lap-a-dor personality. This compact dog is extremely athletic and loves to give Island Dos, Jada and her daughter Shelby, a run for the money! She loves swimming, truck and/or Prowler rides and her secret love is quiet time on the deck with lots of hugs. Oh! And she also loves the camera! Duchess has produced several very nice litters over the course of the last few years. We are hoping she will produce at least one more litter sometime in the next year. We currently have one of her daughters, Island Shelby. Shelby will carry on for her mom!

Jada is a daughter of Island Dos and a great, granddaughter of our first beloved Labrador, Oats. She is also granddaughter to Island Uno who we lost at the end of 2013. She is quick, extremely agile and a fast learner. We hoped she would love to play agility like her grandmother Uno, which she did but, alas, due to an injury to a toe, while playing with our other dogs, we decided it wasn't worth the risk to finish her training. Today, she remains sound and in excellent health. She is my side kick and has taken on the roll of making sure I am safe from all monsters that may lurk in the shadows........... I just LOVE this girl and all the weird things she does! Life without Jada, would be boring!
Jada has been bred for her second litter and confirmed pregnant! She should whelp sometime in late Feb. 2018. We have a current wait list for this litter. Due to the sudden loss of Jada's mother Island Dos, we plan to keep a female from this litter. These puppies will be the culmination of almost ALL our past girls and their sires!! The very proud sire of these pups is: Mistyfield Hawksnest Soaring With The Stars - aka Teddy. I personally would like to Thank both Betty Welles (Hawksnest Labradors) and Janet Nolan (Mistyfield Labradors) for producing Teddy and allowing us the chance to retrieve these wonderful genetics!! Here's to a healthy litter!

What can I say about this little spitfire of a dog?!! Well, I can say,
she is my husband's pick so, if she does something wrong, I can blame him!
Shelby is a daughter of our Island Duchess and one of the very first
puppies by her sire, Belquest It's All Or
Nothin (aka Hoss). We kept Shelby because her sire
line goes back to some of our original dogs. These lines, go back to our
deceased Island Uno.
Shelby is proving to be an extreme athlete.
She is quiet, a tad shy, yet has a quick witted personality and learns
new things quickly. We are hoping she will make a future dock diver as she
adores the water! Bring out the water hose and she's there! At the tender
age of 3 months she would "attack" the water hose and continues to worry
the heck out of it today!
Shelby is the official
"babysitter" to any litter that is born. She LOVES the babies and will sit,
watch and guard them when their mother goes outside. When the time comes,
we feel she will be an excellent mother.
Shelby produced her first litter of pups on March 28, 2017! Proud
sire was the English-bred male, I Will To Please Of Tintagel Winds
- aka - Forrest. (This litter was a cross back into what
produced Shelby's Grandmother, Island Breeze) And WHAT a litter it
was!! Shelby produced 5 girls and 1 boy - all black!!!! This super
typey, smart litter have all gone on to their new homes where they are bringing
joy to their new families.
Plans are in the
works to breed Shelby again in the spring of 2018.

Sammi is from
Island Jada's first litter! What a litter it was!! We
were hoping to keep a black male as a future stud prospect but, alas,
Jada/Miles had other plans and we ended up with a black girl who
is turbo charged but, WICKED smart! Future agility dog?? Possibly as
Island Uno is her great grandmother!
Sammi is extremely
intelligent, has excellent bone, a wonderful full coat, cute head, nice way
of moving, super hip and correct tailset. She is a credit to both her parents.
We look forward to taking this girl to some spring dog classes to see where she
prefers to go. We are hoping for agility but, one never knows!!
Stay tuned and watch
this pretty girl grow!!
