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.
Until we meet

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.

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)
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.

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
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.

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
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.
litter is 3rd generation from our original Labrador Retriever, Oats.
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.
"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!

And I, Beautiful Girl, will see
you again, one day.

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.

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!
Jada is due to whelp the 1st part of Oct. 2020!!

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.
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
is 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
hopefully, someday, produce our 1st Chocolate Labradors!
Shelby is due to whelp in Oct. 2020!

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!
is super intelligent, has excellent bone, a wonderful coat, cute head
and nice way of moving. She possess an extreme sense of what is going on
with ‘her people’. She has what it takes to be 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.
Oh, how we love this dog!!
In an effort to try and save our Island Uno
line, we made the decision to breed Sami. This was something we had
never thought we would do. We changed our mind in hope 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.
Island Samantha and Red Valley Marlin, gave us our next generation. We are, forever grateful.

has the personality of a saint and her athletic ability is just
unbelievable! Her leaps and bounds, and ice skating abilities leaves
everyone holding their breath! She is our extreme athlete in waiting.
She is correct, with excellent bone and a coat to die for! Her
appearance is very feminine while her foot fall, is so soft &
gentle, you will barely hear it. She has earned the nickname of: Stealth
Dog!! Can’t wait to start training her for agility and possibly dock
is a bit of a, “step out of our box”. Her sire is a Chocolate. What
this means is, Reese carries a Chocolate gene and can produce chocolate
puppies if and when she is bred. We have had her color tested to ensure
she did not inherit a yellow gene from her mother, Shelby.
So, sit back and watch this spitfire of a dog grow!

Island Uno. Hopes are, she will someday grace the AKC Agility Show pen
