English Labrador Retrievers in Virginia for show, obedience,
agility, hunting and companionship.

Situated in the Fredericksburg, Virginia area.  We are a
small, but serious breeding home, Labradors for
conformation (showing), obedience, field work and
companionship.

The Air Force took us many places but retirement has now
afforded us the opportunity to In 1999 we began preparing to
follow our dreams and purchased our first foundation bitch,

I will never know the loneliness I hear
in the barks of the other dogs 'out
there'.
I wake my world will not have  changed.

I will never know hunger,
or the fear of not knowing if I'll eat.
I will not shiver in the cold,
or grow weary from the heat.
I will feel the sun's heat, and the rain's
coolness, and be allowed to smell all
that can reach my nose.
My fur will shine, and never be dirty or
matted.

Here in this house...
There will be an effort to
communicate with me on my level.
I will be talked to and, even if I don't
understand,
I can enjoy the warmth of the  words.
I will be given a name so that
I may know who I am among many.
My name will be used in joy,
and I will love the  sound of it!

Here in this house...
I will never be a substitute for anything
I am not.
I will never be used to improve peoples'
images of themselves.
I will be loved because I am who I am,
not someone's idea of who I should be.
I will never suffer for someone's anger,
impatience, or stupidity.
I will be taught all the things
I need to know to be loved  by  all.
If I do not learn my lessons well,
they will look to my teacher for blame.

Here in this house...
I can trust arms that hold, hands that
touch
...knowing that,
no matter what they do, they do it for
the good of me.
If I am ill, I will be doctored. If scared, I
will be calmed. If sad, I will be cheered.
No matter what I look like, I will be
considered beautiful and known to be
of value.
I will never be cast out because I am
too old, too ill, too unruly, or not cute
enough.
My life is a responsibility, and not an
afterthought.
I will learn that humans can almost,
sometimes, be as kind and as fair as
dogs.

Here in this house...
I will belong. I will be home.
