Our Retired Boys
Chablais Stormy Aftermath
Splash has been one of our best producers yet. From him we got Storm Ryder, Artemis, Cassie, Riley, Dancer, Lola, and Aphrodite. We got Splash from Doreen Lopez of Copperquest Labradors in 2009, and there is no possible way to express our gratitude to her for letting us have this very special boy.
Splash now enjoys life in the sunny California weather, lounging in the water trough, sunbathing on the porch, and riding in the truck.
At the Bridge
They say memories are golden, well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you, a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
But as we are called one by one, the chain will link again.

Belquest Riverchase Wizard
Wizard was our very first stud dog, and our first chocolate boy. Wizard gave us Zipper, Sadie, Maggie, Sissy, and many others, and for that, we can't ever thank him enough.
Wizard lived his life with us, basking in the sun by day, and snuggling on the bed by night. Wizard loved the babies, and always wanted out to play with them, even toward the end. He was the sweetest boy we ever owned, and he will forever be known as the "Teddy Bear". Run free buddy...
