1/2/14  Hondo’s a very good boy.  Well-mannered with a good happy attitude.  We just love him. ~ Jon

6/5/13 If you are looking for a great hunting or companion dog, look no further.  ~ SiouxRiver Sportsmen’s Club

6/4/13  My dog Rock is out of an earlier cross of Cloie and Buck.  He is super smart and a great hunting retriever.  I hunt ducks, geese, dove, and crow with Rock.  If anyone is looking for a hunting dog from a proven cross I highly recommend getting one of these pups. ~ Brandon

2/3/13 This is Shasta, age six months and weighing 46 lbs.  Parents were Roxie & Buck.  As you can see she is doing great.  Terrific addition to the family.  ~ Kim

5/3/12 We are absolutely loving our new addition to our family, Indie.  Indie is from Roxie & Duke’s December litter.  Kate

4/24/12 …(Mercy) was one of the Easter puppies born to Roxie & Buck last year and she has been such a wonderful dog! Jennifer

1/2/12  Celebrating Mollie Mae’s 1st Birthday on New Years Eve!  Mollie is puppy #6 from Mollie & Duke’s litter.  She is such a sweet dog! ~ Nicole

9/21/11 We couldn’t be happier with Colby Jack.  His parents are Cloie & Buck and he will be 1 year old on Nov 15th!  This is a picture of him lounging in the backseat of the pickup ready for a drive – one of his many favorite things to do!  He is a very calm dog who doesn’t bark much and loves to give kisses and play fetch…He did phenomenal at hunting, in fact every time Jon mentions the word and grabs a gun Colby starts whining and sits by the door and waits, making sure he doesn’t get forgotten! – The Greseth’s

5/18/11 This is Dakota she was #4 from Mollie and Duke.  We love (her) so much and she is such a good dog. Theresa

2/24/11 Just sending you an update on the puppy we got from you guys at the beginning of January.  He has been a good puppy and very spoiled 🙂  he has been getting along with the other dogs great except the times he wants to bite their lips ;).  Camo is the son of Cloie and Buck he is a very good looking dog and we are very excited to have him as  part of our family.  About two weeks after we got him, I taught him, sit, shake, down, and high five, fetch, drop.  Just this week he has got very good at the command “stay”, he is a smart puppy.  Brigitte & Andy

1/6/11 I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with the Male pup we purchased from you
about a year ago…This is an FFA project for my son.  We just love BEAR.  He is the nicest dog in the world…I just wanted to say thank you again for all the helpful information you sent me when we first got Bear.  I am going to put it to use.  Kevin

10/24/10  I just love the puppy my daughter presented me from your stable.  We named her Abby Gayle.  She is such a delight…She gives us so much joy!  I really think she will hunt with us this fall.  She loves walking through the weeds and treestrips.  Her mentor has been a faithful hunter
for many years.  I can’t wait to see them working together.  Tom

10/20/10 We are so happy with them (Maya & Mallie).  I am thinking I might need a couple more soon.  They have been such good dogs…  ~Amanda

10/16/10  I picked up one of your puppies in May out of Buck & Roxie for John Schleicher and have been able to keep her with me up until now.  After having Abby live here and take her up to Pierre several times this summer, I know I’m ready to have my own.  Well, buy another for John and keep Abby to myself…She is sooo smart and such a joy to be around.  She is a swimming machine and is learning to dive off the dock, fetch, and all the other good things.  She LOVES people.  Thank you so much for raising these great pups.  She has healed my heart and I think she needs a sister.  Thank you.  Gayle

5/22/10  I want to Thank you from the bottom of my <3!  I have been thru quite a bit & believe this puppy is the best thing that could have happened.  We are a good match thats for sure.  Your light will always shine in my home.  Sincerely Heide & “Romeo”

3/11/10  I bought Jeter a male lab from you guys in 06 and my sister and her boyfriend got Brody last year from you (choc lab) They are the best dogs ever! I now take care of Brody as well…he is such a great dog and him and Jeter are bff lol.  I tell everyone about you since you have some the most beautiful Labs! =)  Hope all is well =)  Debbie

2/21/10 Just wanted to check in. We love our puppy and our little boy is having a ton of fun with him. We named him Rowdie and he is living up to it. We have a 3 yr old beagle and they are giving each other a work out. He is fetching like a champ and listens well. We are very happy with him and look forward to watching him grow.  Brian & Becky

2/8/10  Here is a picture of Gary and Doolie on New Year’s Day.  Happy New Year from Gary, Marci, & Doolie! We continue to enjoy the companionship of Doolie.  He is a beautiful gold Lab with a beautiful soul.

1/18/10  We just thought we would send an email letting you know how the puppies are doing.  We are the proud owners of Jake and Bowden born on 8/9/09 from Mollie and Mo’s Litter.  They are almost 6 months old and we can’t believe how big they are getting…Jake is definitely bigger than his brother!  They are both super sweet and have great temperaments.  Every day they are becoming even better pets!  They love to play in the water.  In fact, we’ve had to put up the baby gate around the pool just to keep them out!  They are typical boys, constantly wrestling and playing with each other and our other dogs Holly and Mason.  Everyone compliments us on how beautiful they are and we couldn’t agree more.  I have attached a few pictures for you guys.  Thanks for the wonderful additions to our family!!  Chis, Debbie, Katie and Kelly

12/18/09  I know we e-mailed you last year after pheasant hunting and Kota was only a year old.  I just have to tell you that this year she really figured it out.  She was pointing, flushing and retrieving birds and it did not matter if they landed in the water or not.  She is a bird hunter for sure.  No matter how tired she is, when the gun comes out she is ready to hunt.   It has been so much fun to watch her hunt, so much so that Jim has started to Chukkar hunt again in addition to the SD pheasant hunting.  Thank you again for breeding such great hunting and family dogs.  Jim & Mary12/17/09  Just wanted to send a few pictures of the girls. Mallie is in the pink collar and Maya is in the blue collar. It is amazing how fast they grow.  I am enclosing a few of my favorite pictures to share with you. They are such good dogs and we are so blessed to have them in our lives.  I still love to visit your site to see all the new babies that you guys have.  I figure in another year or so I will be ready for another one.  Wishing your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy and Safe New Year!!  Thanks again The McCanns12/16/09  Greetings, Just thought I would send you some    updated pictures of Boone.  He has been an awesome dog this far,    I am nothing but satisfied.  Thanks again for everything!     Mitch

12/5/09  Just thought I’d let you know how Axel is doing! He was born from Mo & Razzie last March. He is just about 9 months    old now and he is absolutely awesome! I trained him and he made    it an extremely pleasant process 🙂 He knows sit, come, stay,    heel, shake (both paws), speak (but only for a treat), dead bird,    up, and “hunt ’em up”. He is already a proven hunter, running the    fields and retrieving birds to my hand! Thanks for the great dog!    I will be back soon to add another so Axel can have a friend 🙂

11/23/09  Hi Troy and Kelly,  We thought you might enjoy this picture of Dakota. He is doing very well, he’s just a little over a year old now! He was the star of our wedding!  Take care,  The Mjeldes 11/11/09  We had gotten our yellow lab, Abby, from you last November.  She was from Mo and Cloie’s first batch.  Abby has turner out to be a great dog! We don’t know what we did without her.  She is defiantly a water dog.  This summer we would take her to the lake and she would retrieve her dummies and swim around for hours.  Abby has been a great companion.  She adores her 3 mile runs with Susie and loves duck and pheasant hunting with Andy.  I have attached some of her latest pictures.

10/31/09  Just wanted to let you now how Zues is doing.  He came from Cloe and Moes litter of October 08.  He is an oustanding dog.  Loves to be in the water and learned his commands quickly.  Took him out for his first hunt the other day and he retrieved all his birds.  Thank you again for raising excellant labs.  Chris

8/21/09 Well we’ve been meaning to send you pictures of Ellie for    quite a while now!  It was so hard to pick some to send cause    there are so many good ones.  She’s such a beautiful dog and is    so smart!  She picked up on potty training within a week and    she’s following her other commands really well!  We loved looking    at pictures on your website of her sister Kacie.  She’s beautiful    too!   Thanks again, she fits our family perfectly!   Kent, Melissa, Carter & Ellie

5/15/09     My puppy arrived safe and in excellent health. Thanks for doing    such a great job of taking care of him and making his Journey to       Alaska    smooth. It is already apparent that he will be a wonderful member    of our family. Thanks again!  Rebecca

3/8/09 – I thought I’d   share some pictures that I took of our dog Tula today.  She is   from Roo and Lilie’s litter that Lilie had last March.  Tula is   doing great and is full of energy.  She went hunting with Jeremy   this fall and really liked it.  She enjoys the exercise and could   go for hours. ` Rebecca

10/26/08 – We just have to write to tell you how happy we are with Kota, the female born 9-24-07 from Razzie & Mo.  She is just now a year old    and we just got back from the pheasant hunting opener in South      Dakota.  We hunted in a large group with 4 other dogs.  We were    very excited, as she hunted like a seasoned hunting dog and was    also the only dog out there without a shock collar on.  She    stayed reasonably close, listened to Jim’s voice commands and    even pointed several birds waiting for us to come close before    flushing.  She was truly in her element.  You could see the joy    on her face.  This is in addition to the awesome family dog that    she is.  Thank you again for breeding such a great dog and    allowing us to purchase her from you.  We will definitely come    back to you when we are ready for another puppy. ~ Jim & Mary

10/14/08   – I don’t think I ever emailed you an update on Kimber.  She is a   very good dog, we get so many compliments on both her looks and her   temperament!  She’s growing like a weed; she’s 7 months now (hard   to believe) and is right around 60 pounds.  She’s lean, but she’s   just as solid as a rock.  She gets lots of exercise running   around our place all day.  I’ve been working with her for the   upcoming bird season.  She’s picking up the basics fast, it’s   amazing how much of it is instinct and breed into her.  I’m   looking forward to getting out and going up against some wild birds   this fall.  She’s such a people dog too, always trying to please   and loves the attention.  She is always stealing the show when   we’re around other people and pets.  She loves the water and we   can’t keep her out of the snow either, just goes nuts and runs around   nonstop in it.  She’s brought us a lot of joy, we love her to   death. ~ Justin

7/24/08 –   How You Two Doing?… It’s Ignacio And Joanna We Bought From The   Yellow Lab Litter In March, We Wanted To Let You Know “Rocky” Is Doing   Fine He’s Very Playful And Get’s Along Well With Our Other Dog, He Is   5 Month’s Now, Thank You Very Much We Couldn’t Be Happier, We Will   Send You Pictures As Soon As We Can. Thank You Ignacio & Joanna

7/13/08 –   Just wanted to let you know Molly is doing great.  She’s already   retrieving and is learning at a phenomenal rate.  We registered   her as Gryphon Mhor Mardi Gras as every day that she goes to work with   my husband, she makes his office look like New Orleans after Mardi   Gras with the confetti and the fact that she ate the map of Ohio while   we were driving through the state to get home. LOL She did it very   quietly too.  Thanks,  Catherine

4/26/08 –   Thought we’d send   you a couple updated pictures of Gunner (Roo & Lilie’s litter from   January 2006) – he’s much bigger than the picture you have of him &   our daughter on your website.  This past winter when he was at   the vet he weighed 85 lbs.  He’s grown into an extremely   beautiful dog and is doing good.  Gunner LOVES pheasant hunting   and being in the water.  We are always looking at your website   and watching for new litters of puppies.  The 3 recent litters   are adorable! ~ The Dunwoody’s

7/16/07 –         Dawson   is going GREAT!  He’s an incredible athlete   and swims farther from shore every time we go out.  Next summer   they’ll be having water races, do doubt!   Brian & Hope

9/17/06 –   Just thought you   might want to see how the puppy is coming.  We named her Dakota   she is just over eight months and weighs just over 70lbs..    Dakota is a very well rounded friendly and smart dog.  Dakota   knows many commands and retrieves well on land and especially in the   water.  We could not be happier with you guys and the quality of   the dogs.  When the time comes for another dog we will surely be   calling you again.  Thanks the Bott family

4/22/05 – I just wanted to let you know I   found your email address and we love the puppy you sent us in Dec who   is now close to 70 pounds.  You sure grow them big.  I don’t   know how we lived without him.  He is the best addition to our   family.  He is so smart and obedient and is very fond of us and   is friendly with everyone in the neighborhood.  He even loves the   mailman who gives him treats daily.  He loves kids and that is   probably because you bred him well.  Thanks a lot and I recommend   you to everyone who is in the market for a
lab.  Who knows, I may come back to you   later for another.  🙂 – David

6/28/04 –   I want to let you know that we are having a   blast with Stella. She goes and does everything with us. She has   created a very strong bond with our other dog, Oscar. They are very   funny together. Thanks, again. We love her. –Tom

6/24/04 – Hi, Troy and   Kelly, we have been having a lot of fun with Ruby this summer.  If you   and the girls are ever in Sioux   Falls you should call us so the girls   could see and play with Ruby.  The girls must have had a big impact on   ruby, because ever since we got Ruby she will stop everything she is   doing if she hears a little girls voice.  ~ Cory
