Our Chocolate Family

Koko was the the one who started our love of chocolate labs. She was the smartest dog ever! Sadly she is no longer with us.

Kassey continued our love of chocolate labs. She is still the sweetest dog ever! She was now the ancient one in the family, and reminded us that our time with our girls is short.

Maggie what can we say about you? Well for awhile we thought you were our own "Marley" dog. But you calmed down so much we were not sure what to say about you anymore. You sure were a great momma dog! Sadly we said goodbye to you way too soon. Though you would be the one to walk with us for 18 years not 12. Cancer can be a horrendous disease, robbing us of the most healthy dogs.

When Maggie's sister Grace was returned to us because the family were not able to cope with her torn ACLs, we found that here was another girl to fall in love with. So our family of three continued with Grace. Grace was crazy, intense, fast, funny and she had (and still does have) the best tail ever for knocking everything off tables! Her love affair with balls continues unabated.

And now we have our new girls, Hope and Abbey. Hard to believe that Hope was our new Mom in 2021. And Abbey our 2024 Momma.  Wow, four generations of Labrador Retrievers, who we hope have added to the diversity of chocolate labs, and continued the best of the sporting type.
