(English Lines)

AKC Labrador 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 live on..............

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 18, 2005.

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.

Until we meet again..........................

Uno, ready to go!                                Uno at rest - summer of 2005

Uno was 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!

When 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!

Uno 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 title!
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. 2012.

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.
I know you crossed the Rainbow Bridge like is was the Dog Walk!
Mother Oats awaits you! And I, good Friend, will see again, one day.

Harley was our 2nd daughter of Oats. She was the "Hunter" of the group and was a true water dog! Mousing, birding and swimming were her first loves in life. She hunted with purpose and never failed to find 'something'. When asked if she'd like to go swimming, her eyes would light up and her hair would stand on end! She just LOVED to swim! Harley had 4 healthy litters. Her last litter was whelped on Jan. 1, 2011. She was then retired, from the whelping box. During late Dec. 2012, Harley earned her AKC CGC Title! (CGC means: Canine Good Citizen)

The future of Harley’s line is secure. Following in her carefully laid pawprints are: Island Breeze – Harley’s daughter, Island Duchess – Breeze’s daughter, Island Shelby – Duchess’s daughter, and Island Reese – Shelby’s daughter. Reese, will someday be the start of our line of Chocolate Labradors! Harley shall live on!

Rest In Peace, Sweet Harley. Thank you, for all the good times & everything you gave.

As you crossed the Rainbow Bridge, we are pretty sure that Mother Oats & your sisters Uno & Dos, did await! God Speed and take care – Until we meet again.

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 before retiring 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!


Born amongst the winter wind, oh how you loved the snow!
Snow Angels, snowballs, sticks, jolly balls and frisbees – they were your favorite games!
Hug time with your “Roger” was your greatest love of all. He was yours, and you were his.
As your burning light began to fade away,
Your final wish was granted; as you passed in his loving arms……..
Rest In Peace, Sweet Brie.

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 fruit!

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 Citizen (CGC)!

 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.

On Dec.15, 2017 tragedy struck us full force. Out of the blue, God called this beautiful soul back home. We were 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, her granddaughters, Island Samantha & Island Abbey, and great granddaughter, Island Morgan.  

"Dodie Dog, Rest in Peace"
Your memory and the joy you brought, shall live on through your offspring.
Run with glee, snapping jaws and your wonderful yellow hackles raised! 
Your Grandmother Oats, and Mother Uno, await!
And I, Beautiful Girl, will see 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, CH Lobuff Hollyridge Osprey. Needless to say, Duchess had some BIG paws to fill! Which, she did in her happy go lucky way!

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 Jada, her daughter Shelby and her granddaughter Reese, a run for their 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 produced several very nice litters over the course of her lifetime. She is now officially retired from the whelping box. Her line will continue through her daughter Island Shelby and her granddaughter, Island Reese.

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 does 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 role 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!

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.

Shelby is proving to be an extreme athlete. She is quiet, a tad shy, yet has a quick witty personality! She adores 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! She will sit, watch and guard them when their mother goes outside. She was an Excellent mother and produced her first litter of black puppies in March 2017. We have kept one of her daughters; Island Reese. Reese will someday, produce our 1st Chocolate Labradors!

Shelby has been retired from the Whelping box. She now just babysits enjoys any pups that born!


Island Samantha
(Hollyridge Out Of The Blue x Island Jada)
Whelped: Sept. 16, 2016 - Black
Genetically Clear for PRA & EIC


Sami 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. 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!

Sami is super intelligent, has excellent bone and a wonderful coat. She possess an extreme sense of what is going on with ‘her people’ and would have made an excellent Service or Seeing Eye dog! She watches out for us and if we slip on ice or stumble, she is immediately there giving us support by leaning in on our leg and trying to give us balance with her head. How she knows this, we don’t know! I can tell you though, she has saved both of us many, many times.

In an effort to try and save our Island Uno line, we made the decision to breed Samin hopes of a yellow female. God smiled down on us and gave us two extremely healthy, smart puppies. Island Morgan (our yellow girl) and the handsome, Island Tabor!! Morgan lives with us and Tabor, now lives with his relative Orr. Both these pups were sired by Red Valley Marlin – a Duchess son!

Samantha has officially been retired from the Whelping box!
Her line will continue through her lovely daughter, Island Morgan.

  (Reese now lives with new family)

Reese had the personality of a Saint and her athletic ability was just unbelievable! Her leaps and bounds, and ice skating abilities, left everyone holding their breath! She was our extreme athlete with excellent bone and a coat to die for! Her appearance was very feminine and her foot fall, so soft & gentle, you would barely hear it. She earned the nickname of: Stealth Dog!!

Reese was a bit of a, “step out of our box”. Her sire was a Chocolate. What this meant, Reese carried a Chocolate gene and could produce chocolate puppies. She was color tested to ensure she did not inherit a yellow gene. She also was 5 panel tested to ensure she was free of everything except HNPK. When bred, we bred her to a male that did not carry HNPK. This ensured that none of her puppies would be positive for HNPK, only carriers – which can be “bred out”.

Reese had 3 litters by a beautiful English-bred chocolate male. From her 1st litter, we kept our black - Island Wind Song - “Winnie” who honors & reflects her great, great grandmother, Island Breeze. From her last litter, we kept one of her chocolate daughters, Island Reese’s Token. Wind Song & Token will eventually carry on for Reese.

Reese no longer lives with us here on the farm. She has moved on to a new home with her former Veterinarian! It was a hard decision for us but, in the long run, to have her own family with lots of car rides, walks & swimming, it was the best choice for this wonderful girl.



Island Morgan
(Red Valley Marlin x Island Samantha)
Whelped: May 29, 2020 - Yellow
Genetically Clear for PRA & EIC


Morgan is a golden gift from heaven! This fast little girl is sweet, correct and super easy on the eyes! Her natural ‘want’ to stay with her human, has been inherited from her mom, Samantha. She is super smart and very agile. Morgan is a direct descendent to our agility Champion, Island Uno. Hopes are, she will someday grace the AKC Agility Show pen and possibly try her paws at Dock Diving.

Morgan has matured into a stunning Labrador. She is on the smaller side and has the most expressive eyes which, she uses to her benefit. She does her happy lab dance around us almost every day!

Morgan has produced a 2nd litter (Feb. 2023) by the stunning English-bred boy, Hillside Razzmatazz. This litter is just as fabulous as their 1st litter from 2022. Mostly black pups with one lone yellow! All are healthy and the complete litter has been spoken for!

Abby is a daughter of Island Jada. Her yellow coloring & coat are classic lab and her conformation is correct. She is smaller than her mother Jada and actually resembles her great, great Aunt, Island Harley! This energic girl is a huge source of entertainment as she quite vocal at meal time or when she wants attention.

“Winnie” was kept in honor of her great, great, great grandmother, Island Breeze. She resembled Brie so much that it was a no brainer to keep the little black girl! We have been having a blast watching this girl grow and play with her relatives, Morgan & Abby and now her full sister, Token. Nothing like a good chase in the morning or numerous circles around the house before the famed body rolls and doggie tackles that always result from the young ones at play. Winnie is correct with nice bone. Her personality is joyful & bright, while dinner time is full of expressive moans & groans of pure delight!

Winnie x Jake’s 1st litter

Winnie has whelped her 1st litter!! And boy are they FANCY!!! Proud father (and his 1st litter also) is the English-bred male - Hillsides Just in Touch (aka Jake) Jake, like Winnie, is black carrying a chocolate gene. The litter of 7 consists of 3 black girls, 3 black boys and 1 Chocolate boy. Goodness, Chocolate sure can be hard to get! Several of these puppies are spoken for. There is availability which, is very rare at our kennel! If you have interest in a nice, Vermont-bred, healthy happy and sound Labrador, send us an email or call us ASAP. These pups will not last long!


Island Reese’s Token

Whelped: May 13, 2022 – Chocolate

What joy this Chocolate girl has been! It took years of trying to finally get a quality Chocolate female for our breeding program. We do have Token’s full sister, Island Wind Song. Both are very similar but, also different.

Token is a super friendly, quiet and very obedient girl. She tries so hard (like her mother) to do the right thing to please her humans. An excellent trait in our opinion! She is stout, well put together and a joy to live and be around. Plans are in the works to get this girl out and trained for nose work (her litter sister “Bailey”, won her AKC Tracking Title at 6 months of age!!) agility and possibly ring work……………!

Needless to say we are very excited about Token’s future!
