Hi Rosie 
Just wanted to send updated photos on our Luci 12/9/17 (thor x Java). She makes us so happy & we laugh everyday. Not to mention how gorgeous she is. We get stopped every day.  Wouldn’t be surprised to see more  “family loved labs” in Southern California
Thank you for such a great dog

Just wanted to provide an update. This is Huck on our boat. He loves the water and is such an outstanding family member.

Hi Rosie and family,

Wanted to drop you a note to let you know that Obiwan Kenobi (Obi) is adjusting well and we adore him! He is starting to learn his commands (sit and come) and is doing well with potty training. He is the perfect addition to our family. It took Yoda a few days to get used to having a little one around but I think Obi has finally worked his charms with him too. ☺️

Thank you so much for the great dogs. Our family would not be complete without them.

Hi Rosie,
Just wanted to give an update on my fur baby. Cabella turned three in February and is from a Hero + Autumn litter. I do not even know where to start on how amazing of a dog she is. She is incredibly smart, spunky, loyal, and SO affectionate/loving. When I take her to the dog park or doggie day care, I am told she spent more time around the humans, than the other dogs. My family and friends will back me up when I say that she is a human in a dog’s body Thank you for the most amazing dog and my best friend.

This was a picture of her yesterday after the dog park and a bath. She also loves going exploring in our woods.

Hi Rosie!

I wanted to send some photos of our new boy, Mo. We are SO in love! Three days in and Mo has made himself right at home. He is so sweet, loving, and smart! He already knows how to sit for us, LOVES to eat, LOVES people, and we’re working on bell training to go potty outside! We have some stairs in the house and watching him hop upstairs is the cutest thing. Last but not least, his coloring is beautiful, he is a handsome little guy! Here are some pictures over the last couple of days!

Love, the Hamel’s

Hi Rosie,

Linc has been a wonderful puppy. He’s full of love, affection, and joy. He loves attention and makes everyone feel special. He goes with us everywhere including boat rides watching the Blue Angels perform over the river. He’s smart, with a confident disposition. He is growing quickly, clocking in at 20lbs at his appointment Thursday. The staff commented that he is the calmest puppy they’ve seen.

We are so happy to have him as member of our family.

Yesterday we finally welcomed Winnie to her new home. We are so happy to have her and love that she had a traveling companion and a lifelong friend, Remington, along for the trip. She’s happy, enjoying her new surroundings and napping every chance she gets.

(Winnie is an Ari x Knight Puppy)

Our sweet Murphy (Mocha & Knight) is making himself right at home here in Iowa. He loves to snuggle and is super smart. He’s already trained to ring the bell when he needs to go outside. We are in love with him. Thank you, Rosie!

We have enjoyed our CJ we got from you so much we're thinking about getting another male. We like his easy going manner and how quickly he learns commands. I've got to say, he's been a wonderful addition to our family and is as smart as can be.

CJ (Lilly x Storm Pup)

Hi Rosie,

Hope all is well. Our puppy (Rocket) is doing great. He became best friends with our almost 6 year old lab (Jet). It’s exactly how it was when Jet was a puppy. So smart and the willingness to please makes for easy training and bonding. Thanks again.

Here is Sasha at 6, and she is love of my life.  Everyday somebody wants to take her picture or film her or stop to pat and talk to her in Los Angeles

She is very very smart, and easily could have been top of the class service dog or rescue dog.  She is as good looking as God can make a Labrador!!

Please send me pictures of any female puppies you might have like Sasha when you can

Hi Rosie,
Cody got his new Open title CDX this morning wit 1st, 3rd and 2nd places. Moving on to Utility and Rally Masters.
I’m sending you 4 pictures taken this morning (not very good with my old camera) before I got to hang his new ribbons. Not bad for a young dog.

Regards, Maris

Hi Rosie and Randy,
    I hope your family is all doing well! My family is enjoying all the fun and love (our) Rosie brings every day! The last 18 months has gone by so fast. I can't express enough all the wonderful things we love about her! She is well-tempered, intelligent, a wonderful family companion, a superb hunter and completely gorgeous! I can't say enough about her! 
   Thank you for allowing us to bring one of your amazing puppies to join our family. We are truly grateful!

Hi Rosie,
I just wanted to update you on Hendricks (Java/Noble 5/19/16) I had researched quite a bit before I chose you as a breeder and couldn’t be more pleased. I got Hendricks with the intentions of fulfilling my dreams as a Therapy Dog/handler team. Well we did it. We have passed all our certifications and testing processes and we started at the hospital this weekend with orientation and patient visits. I am beyond excited to be sharing this experience with my best furry friend;) She has been so responsive to all the training and loves to go to work.. as long as there is an occasional belly rub and maybe a treat somewhere along the way! Keep up the great work. Your dogs are beautiful and easy to train, ready to work and eager to please! Thank you for being a responsible breeder and caring so much about what you do! I love every minute I get to spend with her. Who are we kidding... she is therapeutic for me too

Hi Rosie and family! We wanted to send you some pictures of Betty White and say thank you again! She is so sweet and so much fun!
I've also included a picture with Betty and Bear. My husbands family got Bear from you about 9 years ago, he was one of Booker puppies!

Hey Rosie! We just wanted to share with you how zuka is coming along. We can't believe how lucky we are everyday to have such a good dog! He just had his first quail hunt yesterday and blew us away. Listening, retrieving, and even flushing birds out for us!!
He is the love of our lives. So well behaved all the time. Everyone loves him and complements how good looking he is. Thank you for making this perfect pup!!

Hi Rosie,

Our puppy is now approaching 6 months old and I want to share how things are going.

First, she is a beautiful puppy!  Her confirmation is sound, her fur is soft, and she has the traditional English lab markings on the tips of her ears, tail, hocks & elbows.  Her eyes are bright and clear, her teeth have all come in and they are great.  Her mouth is soft.  She loves to retrieve, really wants to chase water fowl (lol) and is cuddly, sweet and gregarious.... a perfect family companion.  She has meshed in to our lifestyle really well.  She and our cat are pals, she has learned that we are not early morning risers, so she ‘chills’ until we are ready to start our day, and she is really good with other dogs.  

Even more so, she has been an absolute joy in our home.  She is so intelligent!  She learns very quickly, she listens really well and she is so obedient!  I have never had a dog that has been so intelligent and sweet, and really responsive to training.  These characteristics are definitely inherited from her lineage; I have had other pure bred labs and they were not as docile and responsive to training as our Family Loved Lab.  She knows “sit”, “stay”, “come”, “fetch”, “ok”, and she is leash trained.  Potty training was a breeze with her.  We initially crate trained her, but we prefer a dog bed instead of a crate, and she is great on that.  

Initially I was very reluctant to buy a puppy I had never seen before, from a breeder I didn’t personally know or visit.  However, when I saw the blood line I knew the stock was good.  When I spoke to you I immediately had confidence you were the “real deal”.  From start to finish the communication was great, and the follow up and follow through was 100% perfect.  Its very apparent to me the hard work, care and training you put in to your breeding dogs results in the quality puppy we received.

We couldn’t be happier with our sweet girl, and with the experience we have had with you. I have recommended you to many people in my area - we hope to see more Family Loved Labs in Palm Beach Co. FL!!!!

Warm regards,


Piper (Lacey x Storm Pup)

Dear FamilyLoved Labs:

Three years ago today, one of your yellow labs, then named Kenny and from a litter by Keira and Polar, arrived in our lives. This occurred with some reluctance and uncertainty on my part, having just put down 2 of our beloved labs within the prior year and a half. Our life was oddly empty without those pups, and I was unsure that another pup could ever fill the void. With encouragement of friends Jim and Norma Vermillion who had recently gotten one of your chocolates, somewhat ambivalently I called Rosie and after a brief conversation (where I embarrassed myself by choking up during the call) very impulsively said yes - - and the next day Kenny (now Bogey) arrived.

Bogey has been and continues to be the dog of my dreams. Having had dogs all my life (now aged 63), he has so surpassed any thoughts I've ever entertained of being "the perfect family pup". My wife Alicia, our grown son Chris, and all the other family members and friends who've been with Bogey all agree he is an extraordinary pup. Smart, intuitive, strong, gentle, fun, situationally aware and appropriate behaviorally, beautiful, vigilant, constant companion, etc.

​Words can't adequately convey the depth of our gratitude to you folks, for having bred such an incredible dog. As a family, we are so smitten with Bogey for he has brought so much joy and love into our lives. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to experience such a totally wonderful pup. FamilyLovedLabs is such a PERFECT name - thank you!
Here are 2 images of Bogey: Day 1 of his arrival here 3 years ago today and this morning.

Warm Regards,
David & Alicia

Rosie & FLL gang,

Just thought you’d like to see some pictures of our handsome Ruger. Just past 4 months old and we ABSOLUTELY are in love with this little guy. He has such a calm temper, loves to cuddle and please us. We have trained him to sit, lay down, stay, heel, fetch, drop, paw, and we are working on roll over! We can’t thank you guys enough !

Here’s some photos!

                     Ruger (Annie x Knight Pup)

Rambo with a face full of snow! (Liberty & Elsa) Dog is perfect in every way!

Thanks for such a fantastic Lab!!!!

I know u must always hear this, but his temperament is off the chart sweet and playful both people and dogs! And people always comment he has a puppy face and when I ask what they mean, they are always referring to the wrinkles he kept on his face and forehead. I also love the big blocky head! Thanks again! Joe

                Hank (Noble x Autumn Pup)

Thought you'd like to see how Abby is doing! She's such a sweet and smart girl! Everyone that has seen her just LOVES her she's definitely amazing!

Happy New Year!  We wanted to let you know what a great dog Quincy is turning out to be.  She is almost 10 months old and just under 60 pounds.  Quincy is super calm, extremely snugly, and quite smart.  Her training is going very well and she is enjoying life with the typical Labrador energetic and fun attitude.

Quincy passed the AKC Star Puppy test with flying colors this summer as a 6 month old puppy.  Quincy is currently being trained further in basic obedience with a small group of big dogs all around her age (2 golden retrievers, a rottweiler, a doberman, and an German short-hair pointer mix) and they are all best buddies. Next week she will also begin tricks class.  When she is a year old we will have her train for the Canine Good Citizen and Community Dog tests and then therapy dog classes for hospitals, nursing homes, airports, etc.  First and foremost though she is a pampered pet :)

We have attached some pictures of Quincy so you can see what a beautiful dog she is growing up to be.  We have had numerous people comment on her great looks and a few ask where she is from.  Of course, we don't hesitate to tell them and let them know you are an awesome breeder!

One of the pictures is a close-up of her lower back which has a really distinctive and interesting zigzag fur pattern that gets lots of comments when people first meet her. Quincy's coat is very thick and this is probably not a surprise but she loves the snow and the cold weather does not bother her in the least.  In fact, she was not real fond of summer weather and spent a lot of time in her dog pool when she was outside in the hot weather.  She also loves her two days a week at day camp and they think she is just a great dog.

We hope all is well with you and your family and that you have a great 2018!

Hi Rosie! Just sending an update, we ended up naming our boy Trigger. He is adjusting well to his new home and loves running around with the girls! He really is just the sweetest boy! We love him so much!

Hey Rosie,
These are our girls and we couldn't be happier. For 9 years we owned a dog resort in Hugo and a few customers came in with beautiful labs we couldn't resist. After asking we were told about Family Loved Labs in Sandstone and kept it in the back of our minds for when we were ready to add a pup to our family. A month after losing our GSP we just couldn't wait any longer. Our hearts were broken and we needed another pup to love. We contacted Rosie which lead to us getting our black lab girl named Fish. We had always wanted litter mates but never made the leap to do it at the time because we had an old man at home. After having Fish for a week she was so well behaved and beautiful that we decided to get her litter mate, Loon. That's our chocolate beauty. We have had them for a few weeks now and we couldn't be happier. They love each other greatly and are two peas in a pod. The girls are so different but so wonderful in their own ways. We love them so much and would definitely recommend Family Loved Labs to anyone looking for a beautiful well behaved lab. These girls are everything we have ever wanted and we can't thank Rosie and Randy enough for these beauties. Thank you so much, we are in love.
Nick and Jen

Hi Rosie,

This puppy has exceeded any expectations I could have ever had… he has not cried a single bit when crated at night and is an absolute joy to have.  He is literally getting non-stop love and attention so I’m sure that helps but I could have not asked for a better a puppy!  Will send more pics soon!!


Hi Rosie,

Just wanted to give you a update status on Java and Thor Pup:  Jake, aka Bo.  He is so great and we love him and so smart too.  He is weighing 31lbs now and growing like a weed.  Thank you for giving us the opportunity to have him in our family.  I will keep you posted from time to time on his progress. 

PS:   He loves the water.

Thank you again,


Rosie and Randy,

Captain will be 3 in May and time has went by so fast. He is such a amazing part of this family.  I would really like to add to the family and I keep an eye on up coming pups. Maybe in the future it will work out. Captains favorite things are his 6 year old human sister and to swim. Thanks for this blessing to our family.

Amy and family

Hi Rosie!

Rover (Merlot x Hero) is doing great! He is now 13 weeks old and has adjusted very well to his new home. He was very easy to potty train and follows commands well already! He loves cuddling with us and playing with his toys. We couldn't be happier! Thank you guys so much!

 My name is Michael from Bigfork Montana. I've been wanting to get a Lab dog but just can't decide where and know any good breeder. I've been searching all over and have no luck. It took me a while to find a trustworthy breeder that's knows what they are doing and also of what I'm looking for. Everytime I find a lab dog I show it to my family and friends. One of the breeder I found, my daughter found 4 bad reviews online. So we all thought it's not a good idea. Until we found Familylovedlabs, they caught our attention by their knowledge of their dogs and of what we are looking for. They are very nice to deal with in the phone and helpful of anything that we need to know. They have a few puppies when we first corresponds with them and one of them is "Lady" caught our eye. So we started asking more information and pictures of Lady and it was so nice of them to offer us a very recent video of Lady. That's all it took, we fell in love with her. Five days later we picked her up in the airport in Kalispell Montana. She is perfect and it's just what we are looking for for. We highly recommend this breeder. We can tell they are a good breeder through Lady. Shes a healthy, smart and happy dog. We are so happy with our dog and if any one wants to speak with us feel free to contact us.

Hi Randy, Rosie, Larissa, and Trevor~

After seeing the updated Facebook photos of your handsome boys in the sun, thought I’d send you an update on little miss Finnegan.  She’s the Noble x Latte girl we picked up this Jan.
Finney is now 15 weeks old and an absolute delight!  She started puppy kindergarten already and is sailing through class with ease!  
Such a smart girl…doesn’t take her long to pick up exactly what you are asking, especially when there are treats involved;) Her temperament continues to be exactly what we
had always hoped for:)  Not to mention, she is STUNNING!  We get SO many complements from everyone who meets her, including her vet, our trainer friends, and even strangers!
Here is an updated shot at 15 weeks.  I think she’s starting to look like her mama.  Hope you enjoy the update and they make you smile!  Thank you so 
much for breeding such HIGH quality, outstanding labradors! We are so lucky to have her and can’t wait to see her develop!

Thank again! 
Parc, Linette, & big brother Jack





We bought a lab from you a year ago. His litter name was Cody, he goes by Cotton now. I just wanted to give you a update. Cotton is a part of our family in every sense of the word. He has the sweetest spirit and wants to right beside us 24/7. He is definitely a lover not a fighter...his corgi roommate bosses him around but he's more than good natured about it. He is happiest playing with the kids and keeps us laughing with his mannerisms and slightly goofy, still-a-puppy demeanor. He is HUGE and looks so much like his Dad. We can't thank you enough for raising such great pups! Cotton has quickly become my best friend and an adored part of our lives.
All the best,
Liz & EB

DUKE - Lil' Dove and Dickens English Lab Puppy  - Hi Rosie. We couldn't be happier with our boy that is 15 weeks old. He instantly became a member of our family and our 2 little girls best friend. He thinks he is another child as he chooses to jump in the car seat when he gets in the car! Although he won't be able to fit in it much longer. We are thankful for our big beautiful manly dog which is exactly what we wanted! He's definitely a family loved lab!





Thank you for breeding such amazing dogs! We are absolutely in love with Captain! Thor and him are inseparable and so cute together. We couldn't be happier with the two of them! They are both the perfect additions to our family. Thank you for everything!

 I spoke with the fireman who got us out using the jaws of life and I was told he was licking me before I was life flighted

I got Fletcher, my very handsome black lab, from Family Loved Labs. He's my first very own dog. I got him when I was living in Virginia in August '12. I saw a picture of Fletcher's parents when I was online searching through breeders and read about Family Loved Labs and became very interested! When I investigated more each time about breeding, I became more and more interested in Family Loved Labs.

But Family Loved Labs is in Minnesota, you say! I had plentyyyyyy of questions for Randy and Rosie since I had not met them in person, seen their home, nor met my pup yet! I was also very worried about flying him to me in the heat of summer, but I made sure the airline had air condition and it made me comforted to know he would not be drugged for the flight. Rosie and Randy were very patient with me and great at answering all of my many questions re: his flight, health, personality, temperament, etc. They would also send me videos and pictures of him, even certain ones upon my request!

I fell in love with Fletcher immediately when he cuddled up to me after I took him out of the crate he flew in. We played in a park for a bit, I gave him water, and of course, his new toys. I could tell right away he had a great temperament! Playful, yet calm.

From the first week I had him, we went on a lot of hikes together. He was my teammate from day 1! We have grown to be closer teammates than I ever imagined possible.

Two and a half years ago, we were driving back to VA after spending Christmas in Ohio. On the way back, we were in a very severe car accident. I suffered multiple injuries and was told later on by my parents that I was only given a 2% chance of living upon arrival to their ER (after being life flighted).

Miraculously, Fletcher had NO injuries from the accident!!! Thank God for that!!! Everyday, I literally thank God for not only my life, but his too.He has been my saving grace through my recovery. I call him my angel because of that.

In the past couple years, I had to learn how to walk all over again after getting out of a wheelchair and going to a walk, two canes down to one, then finally nothing! When I was able to finally walk without any aides, I had Fletcher trained to walk on leash with me for very short distances. He seemed to be sensitive of my needs. If I tripped, he would look up to me, as if he was making sure I was okay. On these rare walks, I would continue using the training I learned on how to walk him and just in the past 6 months or so have trained him to walk off leash! He's so smart!!! Now, I'm able to walk him more frequently and am privileged to do so!

In fact, since I'm not able to give him vigorous exercise, I pay his trainer to take him running 2 times a week. Last week, he even took him for free to run a 5K!! He said Fletcher is his favorite, which comes as no surprise to me, but does make me even more proud of him!

He's not only incredibly well trained and has a great overall temperament, but he's also the sweetest and gentlest dog I've ever met. He's very cuddly! He thinks he's the size of a little chihuahua or any other lap dog. He's great with my nieces, ranging from ages 2-9 and they love him dearly! He's sweet with everyone, including other dogs. With all dogs, he is very submissive. No mean bone in his body!

I cannot say enough good things about Fletcher or Family Loved Labs!!! They gave me the best dog I've ever known. I can't stand to think of the day that I won't have my angel by my side anymore, but when that day comes, I hope Randy and Rosie are still breeding these beautiful babies because I'm a customer for life!  - Sarah







 Hi Rosie,

I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with our family member Gunnar (formally Max and born 11/11/2013 Noble and Mattie).  It’s been 2 years now and Gunnar has been amazing.  We’ve never had a dog that was so easy to train and a pleasure to raise from just 8 weeks. He’s the most intelligent and loving dog we’ve ever had!  We’re sending a picture of Gunnar along with our wishes that your family has a wonderful holiday season and blessed New Year!   

Jeff & Bobbie







Where to begin…

As you can see by this picture, Ace is strong, healthy and well-fed.  He drinks gallons of water each day and if the water bowl doesn’t suffice he’s not opposed to bracing himself, with both paws IN the toilet, for an additional drink.   UGH!  Of course, we strongly frown on this behavior but he takes advantage of people not closing doors, putting down lids or simply leaving him to his down devices for a few quick moments.  (Big smile.)  He’s ALL puppy, but simply a delight to come home to at the end of the day for all of us.  He quickly outgrew the initial kennel, and then the next, and now he simply sleeps at the foot of Sawyer’s bed which suits him just fine. 

He quickly figured out the Invisible Fence, too, which allows him to have full run of about 3 acres around our farm during the day.   He stays close to our other dog, Cooper, and spends a fair amount of time trying to engage him in any activity…mostly tackling, licking or barking at him.   He’s growing like a weed and seems to be a perfect fit into this family.   He rides on four wheelers, in cars and truck, and if there is any action - he wants to be in the middle.

Thanks again for breeding such a beautiful young dog.   We look forward to many more years with Ace in our family. 

Happy Thanksgiving from ours to yours.


Ann, Matt, Sawyer, Gunner and Ace

 Hi Rosie!

We've had Dakota home for 24 hours now, and whatever you did to prepare her for coming home with us worked like a charm. She has been so very good for us!  As you can see from the photo below, she has settled in well already. (I don't think she could be more relaxed!)


Dakota is doing well - she is quickly learning to sit and come, and she's done wonderfully on a couple of short walks we've taken around the neighborhood in the past few days.  Everyone is absolutely crazy about her.  I've attached my latest favorite photo, with a lab statue we've received when we got our first lab, Hershey (the statute is wearing Hershey's puppy collar).  So cute!

Happy Thanksgiving to your whole family!


 Dakota (Java x Noble Pup)





 My husband and I bought a dog from you 2 years ago. He is from Polar and Disney. Best dog we have ever owned! Great temperament, smart, loves to play fetch, loves to just to lay around gets along with anybody and any dog (big or small), and overall just wonderful! He has passed all his puppy classes and AKC CGC Test with no problems. We are very pleased and tell everyone about your website! Thanks again! 




Good morning - 

I had to share this photo - We were in Chicago visiting our family and my brother snapped this photo. 
Lola Faut (2013)  is on the left - Ceili Worley (born Jan 2014) is on the right - both have Polar as their father. 
We love these dogs so very much. It’s fun to see these related labs play and have fun - especially swimming in the pool together. 
Such sweet girls!
Thanks and have a good day -

Thank you so much for the amazing addition to our family. Thor is very well tempered, but still working on the house training. He will be starting puppy classes soon! We absolutely love him and the kids cant get enough of him!
Thank you again.

 Hi Rosie-

By the way (Ben) is now 1.5 years old, and the best dog ever! Many others besides me, comment on how beautiful of a lab he is, especially his blocky head. Ben has many characteristics of Polar, and everyone is always mentioning to me, or stopping us on our walks to say how beautiful the dog is and that they've never seen such a blocky head. I always mention your name and website, and that his head is the true characteristic of an English Lab. Thanks again for such an impressive dog! 
Attached are a few photos of Ben from late this summer/fall if you're interested in seeing. Enjoy!

 Good morning!

I just thought I'd send a quick update on Louie (Cosmo from Chloe/Polar's July 2014 litter) since it was his birthday yesterday!


Louie is the most adorable, curious, loving little guy! He finally got a chance to swim in the lake at our cabin up north and true to his lab instincts it is impossible to get him out! He goes to daycare 2 days a week and he has made so many new friends..he even had a birthday party there on Thursday. 

He is definitely a mama's boy and follows me around like my shadow unless we're at the lake and then he is all about dad (he throws the ball farther). When he isn't swimming or chasing he is most likely sleeping!

Louie is so smart too! He knows all the basic commands and he mastered the hardest one of all..sitting and waiting while we put either his food or a treat in-front of him until we say ok.

I have to admit we were a little nervous about bringing this little puppy home 10 months ago. I grew up with dogs but always had my parents to help so having something completely dependent on us and us only is a terrifying thought! There were definitely some challenges but the happy moments FAR outweigh the tough ones. Bringing that little fluff ball home and watching him grow and learn over the past 10 months has been so fun and rewarding!








 Hi.  Here are some pictures of Wrigley (Polar x Diamond pup 8/3/14).  He is an awesome dog!  The kids love playing and cuddling with him.  Couldn't ask for a better dog!

 Hello Rosie - - our yellow lab pup that we call Bogey that you sent our way onFebruary 13th is now nearly 6 months old. I just wanted to tell you he's doing great and is such a totally cool and smart dog. My wife Alicia and I are SO happy with him and we're grateful to you and your family for breeding such wonderful dogs. Bogey loves it here and has become dialed-in to living in the foothills above Boise. Norma Vermillion and I are often in touch about our dogs and as she puts it, we're both hard-core Lab-a-holics!

Having Bogey is our lives is such a joy and has filled such a hole. I'm nearly 61 years old and it has rejuvenated my spirits so much and I know it has for Alicia as well. This is, I suppose, just a long-winded way of saying a heart-felt thank you. I've attached a picture of our boy posing on a ridge just above our house. He's a great pup!
I hope all is well for you and your family - many thanks!!!!
Best Regards,

 Bogey (Kira x Polar pup)




Next week our captain will be 1 years old. He is  such a wonderful pup. Isabella and captain are best friends always together !! We just want to thank you for such a amazing dog


Captain (Kira x Louie pup) 





 Greetings Larissa, Trevor, Randy and Rosie,

I have about a 100 photos of Marigold, Outside, sleeping on her bed, hikes, snuggling, with the other 2 little dogs…., 
1st photo, end of 1st day at home. 2nd photo, Saturday after a long hike through our woods (she changed from a flouncy walk to a strut, but had to be carried 
back the last 100 yards as she was tuckered out).  3rd photo, after a little bath because she loves mud, leaves, and sticks. 

Things we've learned about Marigold:  
She loves food. Lab. She loves food.  
 She will sleep in her kennel through the night with one outing at 2 am, whimpering only a few times until she hears my voice and smells my hand, then quiets right down.
She can now run up the steps back into the house without stumbling (this was a 2 day lesson)
 and she knows she can run up the steps after she has peed.  She follows the other 2 out and knows the sound.
She will bark at the gate because she knows on the other side are the prime chewies like antique Navajo rugs, clean white
 carpet, Pendelton log furniture, and other expensive chewies :-)

 She has not gone in the house (not because she knows not to, but because we are trained so well :-)  
She loves leaves, and knows every spot that has fresh dirt under them.  
 She loves her bed and has all her toys piled up on it and will always go there to sleep, play with a toy or to chill.
She loves balls, her favorite, (husband won bet, all the fancy toys I got and she 
prefers sticks, leaves and balls) 
 She thinks the 2 little dogs are fun toys to chase, (we're working on that one) They will tiptoe around the "little dragon" when she is sleeping, lol!

Having the 3 of us here all weekend was perfect!  We have gotten into a routine.  She looks for her people when we are outside and she is learning her name.
She seems very content and happy, she seems to have adjusted quite well.  
She is learning soft mouth.  Will pee every time we bring her out (again, we are trained, but that will turn around as she gains
the strength to hold it)

She loves to play, sleep, and eat.  She loves snuggles.  She is constantly watching everything around her and catches on quick.
She can sleep through a gazillion kisses.

She is an absolutely adorable puppy, she is going to be such an awesome dog!  We are deeply in love, you can't have her back :-)

We'll send photos regularly. 
Thank you, The Henns :-)

Marigold (Diamond x Polar Girl) 



 Hi Rosie,

Hope everything is well.
Dakota (we kept his name as is because it just seemed to suit him perfectly) is 15 weeks now and is doing great! 
He is so well behaved, mild mannered puppy.  On top of that, he is the cutest, most handsome boy I have seen.
We couldn't have asked for a better puppy and we thank you all.


Hi Rosie,

Hope everything is well with you.
I have adopted Dakota from Polar x Diamond litter, born on 08/03/14.
He is already almost 8 months old and is doing fabulous.

Just to show you how well Dakota is doing, I am attaching a photo of Dakota and a fake Dakota make out of snow.... We had so much fun!
Doesn't he look so much like Polar?  He is one handsome pup!




Seamus, a beautiful puppy from Family Loved Labs, joined the Pawsitive Perspectives Assistance Dogs (PawPADs) program in the winter of 2012/13.  PawPADs trains assistance dogs to be placed with people with disabilities and uses the process of training the dogs as a therapeutic and educational experience for inmates, youth at-risk, children with disabilities and veterans.  Our dogs must be healthy and have solid, even temperaments and “little” Seamus absolutely fits the bill on all counts! 

Seamus is extremely easy-going and doesn’t let any experiences rattle him.  He’s also very, very intelligent and, at only 7 months old, already knows over 50 of the service dog tasks and commands!  Just yesterday his inmate trainer showed off how he could send Seamus to get the “phone” (actually the remote control) – Seamus went down a long hallway, out of sight, to the correct cell, tugged open the door, got the “phone” and brought it all the way back!  He did it all with the quiet confidence of a well-adjusted dog!

The first weeks of a puppies life will define and shape who they are and how they handle the world – the entire Christensen family joins in to make sure that their puppies have a lot of exposure to children and other animals and different experiences.

Seamus is going to change someone’s life dramatically and we are incredibly GRATEFUL for the generosity of Rosie, Randy and their family. 


PawPADs would, without hesitation, add more Family Loved Labs to the program and look forward to that possibility in the future!  





Hi Rosie and Family
I had to send you a few pictures of our wonder and very loved dog, Rudy. He is the best behaved and well mannered puppy we have ever had. He sleep in a kennel without any complaints, falls asleep the minute he gets in the car, has not chewed up anything valuable. He is such a good boy, we just love him!!! Kendrie and him are good buddies. He is always following her around.

 Rudy (Summer x Polar Puppy)






I wanted to let you know that OSHIE-(Chloe and Polar) has been with us for a week and is already a part of the family.  Cooper-his 2 year old older Brother (Pearl and Polar), love each other and our best pals already.  We are so glad we got another white lab; but even happier that we got another one from Family Loved Labs.  Once again, there were no issues with the shipping to Cape Cod, MA and our Vet said that he was gorgeous and could not believe how smart he was.  At 9 weeks old he can sit, wait for his food and knows his name.  We are a hockey family and bring OSHIE and Cooper to the rink every practice and they melt all the parents hearts when they see them together.  Once again, I cant thank you enough.  The kids are thrilled and I think we have the best labs on Cape Cod.

 Hi Rosie,

        Just wanted to send you an update on Dakota. He just passed his CGC test this last week and is now moving onto Rally. I can't begin to tell you how smart this puppy is, he amazes me sometimes! He is the best puppy we have ever had times 10, and everyone asks us how did you luck out to get a Lab that calm?! I am going to keep him going in his classes as he loves it.
        Take care,






Here are a few pictures of little Cayenne.  She is not so little any more.  Troy was here for Thanksgiving and we enjoyed having Cayenne around.  She is a beautiful dog inside and out.  Her temperament is gentle and sweet. She means very thing to are family.  Troy had to put down his male lab the day before Thanksgiving.  He was 15 years old. He lived a long great life.  Cayenne has top ranking now and the joy of her master.
Thanks for giving us the honor of having Cayenne in our lives. Gold bless you and your family this holiday season.

 Hi.  Leia turned “1” on April 15th.  She is from Booker and Pearl’s litter.  She is a great dog and is so good with the kids.  We recently moved to a new house on a lake, so she is enjoying swimming and being out all the time around the lake.  Here are a couple pictures of her. 






 Our Diesel arrived in our home just in time for our wedding.  He is very smart and is already learning tricks and how to find shed antlers. Thank you Family Loved Labs for providing us with such a wonderful addition to our family. Your Labs are the best!

6/29/2013  Gigi K.Antelope, CA   Photo of Gigi K.

I received my beautiful boy last feb.  He is now 6 months old and gorgeous.  He is a yellow lab, but appears white with buff points. I never go out without him and I receive multiple compliments on him wherever I go.  He is a Polar x Keeper pup and has the handsome blocky head that English labs are known for. I have to say he is the smartest dog I have ever had (I have been a breeder of different breeds for 30yrs).  He knew basic commands at 3 months, and just completed a puppy class where the trainer ran out of things to teach him because he would learn things so quickly!  I could not have asked for a better dog, he far exceeds what I wanted in a companion.  I highly recommend Family loved Labs.  They went way out of their way during the whole process of purchasing my boy and being sure I was completely satisfied.  They breed the most beautiful labs I have ever seen,  I looked for the perfect lab for 3 years and found him at Family Loved Labs.




Rosie and Family,

Thank-you for the professionalism in the way you have responded to us with our recent purchase of Hazel our new female English Lab.  Often times when being on the customer end one might be apprehensive about dealing with an unknown breeder.  Our current purchase from you and your staff went very well.  I have no problem at all in recommending you to anyone thinking of purchasing an English Lab.  Through the years we have purchased labs for our family and our most recent experience in dealing with you was a blessing.

Thanks for all your efforts on our behalf.

Cliff and Myra Myers




Bo (Disney and Polar Boy)

Randy and Rosie:

I wanted to give you an update on the most wonderful pet, we have ever owned, our family member - Bo a/ka - Dakota.  From the moment we picked him up at the airport, we knew he was a special dog.  Not only does he have the "looks" that everyone raves about, but he has the best temperament of any dog that I have ever owned.  Temperament and looks, however, isn't his strongest attributes.  It is by far his intelligence.  He is now right at 7 months old.  He minds and has an understanding of commands better than dogs far his senior.  We took him to a local dog training school.  The instructor, after the third day, told me that he was the smartest puppy they had in attendance in a number of years.  So much so, that they advanced him quickly to greater obedience tasks.  Short story, we are very happy with Bo!   I hope you guys continue breeding your wonderful family labs!  To anyone looking for a new family member, I'd highly recommend they look no further than the dogs you are breeding.

I am going to forward various pictures to you of Bo.  He now weighs right at 65lbs at 7 months old.  The vet is of the opinion he will be in the 90lb - 100lb range.  He will be a "looker" like his father!!

The attached picture is a "day in the office."  Periodically, I bring him to work with me as my sidekick!

Turner (Porsche x Noble Pup)


Hi Rosie,

We just wanted to send a quick update on Hank and Stella.  In a word, they are...FANTASTIC!  We couldn't have asked for better puppies.  They play together constantly, yet are very friendly to other dogs they meet.  They are smart, well-behaved, loving and, of course, beautiful.  While out walking, we can't take two steps without someone commenting on their color and cuteness.  And almost everyone tells us how mellow and calm they are for lab puppies (no joke...we must have heard that 50 times).  We are also thrilled that their half-sister, Rosey, lives just a few blocks away.  They already visited once and we hope to see her again soon.   
Thanks again for such wonderful bundles of fur!

We attached some pictures...weren't sure if we had forwarded some of these already, so excuse the duplicates if that's the case.

Hank and Stella (Autumn x Rocket)

Thanks so much to Family Loved Labs!

This is the first time I have ever purchased a puppy online.  Rosie and her family were so helpful throughout the process. Our Bailey showed up right on schedule and in perfect health.  Her crate and paperwork were all intact.  She is only 9 weeks old and has already been leash trained. She comes on command, sits and shakes already. Truly an incrediblysmart dog. We look forward to many great years with the new addition to our family.


DarrenBailey (Foxy x Rocket Pup)
Rosie and family,

Here are some recent pictures of the puppies.  They are doing so well!  They have a vet appointment tomorrow so I will see how much they weigh now.  They have definitely gotten heavier, we can no longer hold them both at the same time!  Have a great week!


(Chloe x Polar Pups)

Hi Rosie,

Bailey is a great part of the family. We have a pool, covered for the winter.  Our lab Molly (4) loves the water and plays on the cover, even on really cold days.  today she took Bailey for a quick swim.  It was probably a good introduction, and it took Molly to think of it.

We are loving our baby.  She is calm, eager to learn.  Very few accidents in the house, and those are our fault, not her's.  She sleeps in the laundry room with Molly and quiets down very easily.

Best wishes to your family.  I will send more pictures next week.


Hi Randy and Rosie,
I just wanted to say thank you! I welcomed Harley (if you recall I was unsure of the name Ajax and did change it once we met)...into my home last Friday and he is an absolute joy!

Here is a updated photo of him taken just yesterday.

I'll continue to send you photos and updates as he grows.


Harley (Chloe x Polar Pup)

Dear Rosie,

Just an update on Mable.  She was a dog that you sold, then she came back, and then we were able to get her. It was around Nov. 2008 I believe. We met in a parking lot in the cities because you were going to a home school conference and my wife had a bag of clothes for you. Mable has been a great addition to our family.  Outside she is still very energetic, but when we are inside she is the perfect family dog.  I do not hunt as much as I would like, but when we go she does as good of a job as the rest of the dogs.  My wife and I walk her every day for just over an hour off leash on some county land by our house. She has about 11/2 acres of land to roam around our house (we put in one of those "invisible" fences).  If we need to leave her for a few hours she has a heated  garden shed with a door to an 8x12 kennel. Often I will take her with me on my service calls. Hope you and your family are well.

Thanks, Hugh


How are you?? Here is a picture of our gorgeous cheif at age 14 weeks!! I can not tell you how smart he is, with all the craziness in our life he has managed to learn to walk on leash, heel on leash some of the time, sit, stay, paw, speak, starting to master come and give a lot of love.  As long as he does not have too much room he is housetrained.  Loves his new bigger crate but I must say prefers to be with me as much as possible.  A true beauty and true lab boy, does he LOVE to eat!!!  I guess this is a tribute to the work you all put in with him as a puppy!!!! He knew his name and all right away!!

Cheif is awesome and a well needed part of our lives.  We have already thought about a possible addition next spring.
Thanks so much,


Chief (Autumn & Rocket Pup)

We love our new puppy and thank you for taking such good care of him.

(Carbon x Polar Pup)

Hi Rosie –

It’s been about 2 weeks since Gus arrived and I thought I’d send you a couple of pictures.  He’s doing great.  He is such a fast learner, he knows his name pretty well and he is progressing very nicely in the potty training area.  He’s the most popular guy at our local pet shop – All the Best Pets – with several pictures already on the digital photo display they have there.  He rides to coffee with Rich almost every morning so the Starbucks crew has met and fallen in love with him already as well.

Oh, one last thing . . . our college student daughter has “Skyped” with Gus several times to make sure he knows her voice as well and is looking forward to coming home to spend some time with him at Thanksgiving.

Thank you so much, we just love our new puppy!

Lori, Rich, Ariel and Jordan

Gus (Cayenne x Badger Pup)

Hi Randy & Rosie,

Winnie has been a great addition to our new little family. She's a smart beautiful puppy. She has learned to Stay, Sit, Lay Down, Roll over and to give both paws already.
She loves to play with her puppy friends and cousins Andy & Sully. Winnie loves to go for hikes in the state forest and has already found a love for water! We are looking forward to the spring/summer to take her to the lake to swim.
We thank you so much for our amazing puppy, we could not be happer.
Attached are a couple pictures of our girl, as you can see she has grown up quite a bit in the 2 months we have had her!!
Winnie (Cali x Noble Pup)
Attached is a picture of Winnie, Andy, Sully and Moose --

Hey there gang hope your holidays are going great.  Just wanted to pass along some new pics of our Sully boy and his cousins, Andy and his newest cousin Winnie that you guys just shipped out to our brother and sister in law (marcus and patty).  We are being over run by labs out here and we love it!!!!

Enjoy the pics ..... the whole pack is ready for x-mas!

I didn’t want another day to go by without thanking you for Black Bella and for raising them so beautifully. I have had Black Labs and one Doberman all my life and two months ago had to put Sara, my 14 year old down. We still have Emma, who is 11, but I have never waited more than a week to get another one and this time after 8 weeks, I couldn’t take it anymore. I need a baby to bringing me JOY and I particularly like what your daughter said on the website. Labs are not my whole life but they make my life whole.She arrived 2 hours late on a later flight Friday nite but looked like she had stayed at the RiTZ! She was everything and more that you described. I have never  bought a dog online and was worried but I knew it was Karma when I saw her face, her name(which is the one I had chosen in my mind for my next dog), the description which was Sara’s description and the fact that she was family raised. I fell in love with her and suffered for the two weeks we had to wait.

We had her to the vet within 24 hours and she gave her a clean bill of health. We have had great success house training her. She already knows her name, to come, to sit upon arrival and we are working on down. So smart. My life and my husband’s life has improved immeasurably. Emma is not quite as enthusiastic. However, Bella is working on her and each day allows Bella a little closer. Puppy school at home until November than she’s enrolled. She has had lots of experiences already and is a quick learner.

I just wanted you to know that she is loved and will be treasured, as all our dogs have been. We rent a house on Cape Cod that is right on the beach for our dogs. Our kids and their kids can come too, but it’s for us and the dogs. Everyone says they want to come back as one of our dogs.

Gratefully yours,

Suzanne, Larry , Emma & Bella

Bella (Midnight x Rocket)

Hi Rosie,

I'm sending a few pictures of our girl.  Can't tell you how thrilled we are with her.  The dog you see her with is my son's dog.  Lucie completely dominates this 95 pound boy. He just spent 6 weeks with us.

We start obedience classes tomorrow but I've spent lots of time teaching her basic commands and she's been very responsive and easy to train as you predicted.  The classes will be clicker training which intrigues me.

Thanks for any advise you might have and thanks for getting us such a great pup.

BethLucie (Autumn x Rocket Pup)

Just a note to let you know he is a great dog! Very smart loving and as easy going as you could get, he also has a great personality!!He is about 80# and still growing

Hi Rosie:

I just thought you might like another picture of “Bo”  i.e. Bowdoin’s Mascot,  for your wall.  He is awesome!!

Sometimes he meets his full brother “Logan” – Lynne’s puppy (Booker and Breezy) at the park to play.

AS you know, he is a total sweetheart – very smart and has the best disposition.

Have a great fall.



Bo (Booker x Breezy Pup)

Dear Rosie,

We can not say enough good things about this puppy, we absolutely love him!!  The kids named him Rosco and where speechless when they first saw him.  He has been so sweet such a wonderful disposition.  He is just a pleasure.  He sleeps thru the night already and is pretty much potty trained. He loves his crate that he flew in and does not seem to be affected by the plane ride at all.  He has been great from the moment we picked him up from the airport. He is just a sweet and calm little fellow that has his playful moments but loves his nappy time also.

Thank you Rosie for this wonderful puppy, we could not have wished for a better puppy.  The whole experience has been wonderful.  We can not believe how good he is and how great he adjusted to our family. The boys already taught him some tricks, like sit, down, stay and come.  He is just very well behaved and very very cute!!! I can tell he is going to grow into a beautiful dog. We will keep you posted.

Warm Wishes, Tina


Boomer (Breezy x Booker Pup)

Hi! I have attached a couple pictures of Tristan, as you can see he is pretty much the handsomest guy around. He is my hiking buddy and the goodwill ambassador at our barn, he hangs out equally well with people or horses!

Hi Rosie-this is Brody! One year old on June 29th, 2011 and the love of our life!  He's a total luvvy, and we have never been happier! Let us know if Booker and Dove have another litter coming soon, we would love a little sister for Brody!

Brody (Dove x Booker Pup)


I just wanted to start by saying THANK YOU! We welcomed Dixie (previously Bella - Booker x Carbon pup) into our home back in April, and she has been a huge part of our family ever since! She is absolutely gorgeous and has so much personality! I was worried about her flying by herself, but she handled it like a pro! Within days, she was already best buddies with our other dog, and now they're inseparable! She loves car rides and going on hikes. However, nothing compares to her love of water! She doesn't hesitate to jump in rivers, ponds, waterfalls and showers (if you're not careful). She is really smart! I'm not sure what you guys did, but I've never had a dog that was so easy to crate train! We just say "crate", and she walks straight into her crate and sits down. More importantly, she is the most lovable and devoted dog! At almost 5 months old, she's already over 40 pounds and gets bigger every day. We love Dixie so much, and we look forward to all the memories we're going to share!

I've enclosed picture of Dixie doing one of her favorite things: riding in the truck! As you can see, she loves resting her big head on Bryan's shoulder while he's driving. Adorable!

Best wishes,

Jenn (and Bryan)

Hey gang hope all is well out in Minnesota.  Our little Sully boy isn't so little anymore, actually amazing at how big he is getting.  Lisa and I say almost everyday "I'm pretty sure he grew last night".  So far so good, he started losing some baby teeth but otherwise he is a happy and healthy dog - he's current on all his vet appointments and everything is going great - we LOVE him!!!!

Here are some photos of our boy as we as a photo with his favorite dog cousin, Andy.

Sully (Blaze x Ruby Pup)

Randy & Rosie,
Hope all is well with you. We are doing great.
Thought I would give you an update on our beautiful girl. Hadley is wonderful. We've have had such a good time training & loving her. What asmart dog! And a looker. You should hear the comments when we go to the vet
or are out walking :) Everyone wants to pet her & asks where we got her. I refer them to your website of course. Hopefully you'll get some inquiries from it! She loves people & other dogs. We bring her everywhere.
You will see from the pics she is fearless! We took her to the lake for the first time last night & she jumped right in! Curt can't wait to take her hunting this fall.
Our yellow lab Ella is a great role model & so patient.
We start obedience classes next Friday in Rochester.  She will be one of the stand-outs. (I sound like a total mom, don't I?)
Take care,
Curt, Tori & Hadley

Hadley (Booker x Carbon Pup)

Hi Rosie & Randy -

We just wanted to send you an update on Parker and let you know how much we love having him in our family! It's been just over a month now since he arrived and we couldn't imagine life without him. His personality shows more and more each day and we love watching him experience new things. He's a very bold puppy and loves adventures, he certainly doesn't scare easily. We took him camping for the first time this weekend We were a little worried about how he would do with sleeping in a tent, but it didn't even seem to phase him. It was a little chilly last night so we woke up to him snuggling up to us INSIDE the sleeping bag! The campsite was on a lake and Parker swam for the first time. We live a block from Lake Washington so water isn't new to Parker, but he never goes further than chest deep so we were very excited about him swimming!

Attached are a few photos and here's some commentary for them:

Parker_Work: I work at a pet friendly company so Parker often comes to work with me. He loves it and has already made plenty of other dog friends! This photo is of Parker sitting in my desk chair.
Parker_Marina: As I mentioned, we live a few blocks from Lake Washington so Parker gets to go down to the marina several times a day. He loves hanging out in the sun and chasing geese.

Hope you guys and the doggies are doing awesome!  Thanks for Parker, we just adore him.

Hi Randy & Rosie,
Just a quick note to let you know Hadley is happy & healthy & growing by the day :) She is such a joy. We are having sooo much fun with her. She's smart (already knows come, sit & shake), loves people & gets along beautifully with our other 2 dogs & our grandpuppy. In fact, Ella (our yellow lab) & Hadley are best buds. You can see that from the picture I attached!
Thank you for this wonderful little girl. She has stolen our hearts - We're enjoying every minute of it!

Hey guys! Just thought we would give you an update on Toby!

Time has gone so fast already and he is getting soooo big! He is so energetic and playful, but yet very calm which is something everyone comments on about him. He recently went up to my families cabin and absolutely loved the water! He loves going for car rides but still thinks he is ten pounds and can ride on your lap! He loves playing with other dogs and making new friends. He went for his first truck ride with only Jud and he did wonderful by himself! He loves it at the shop playing with the other dogs and greeting everyone every morning! He has brought such a joy to our lives we could never thank your family enough!
Here are a few pictures of the big guy!((:

Dear Rosie and Larissa,

Our "little" Gus is just about 6 months now.  He is so well behaved and just a joy to have around and that is pretty amazing for a puppy (in my experience). He plays hard at the dog park with his friends and then stays by my side all the rest of the time.  He is growing into those big feet but still has a ways to go.  I have attached a couple of photos of Gus in and out of the pool.  He loves the water.

The first time people meet Gus, their first question is "What kind of dog is he?" The second thing they say is "He is just beautiful!".  And then when they pet him and see his personality they know he is all lab.

Thanks again for this wonderful puppy.


Gus (Cayenne x Blaze Puppy)

Hello Rosie,

Just wanted to check in to tell you how much we love Adele and what a great addition she is to our family.  She is such a good girl and is so darn smart-she comes when called, she sits when told, she stays when told, and she shakes (can you tell I am a proud parent).

Potty training has been a piece of cake-she hasn’t had an accident in a very long time. Most of her accidents were when the boys were on duty-they are quite as observant and missed her cues.

She has two best friends-one is a yellow lab who is only two weeks older and the other is a labradoodle who is 6 months old.  We try to get them together to play as often as possible.

We signed her up for puppy training and am sure they will show us a trick or two.

You should be very proud of the work you do, she truly is an amazing animal.  I am very happy live allowed our paths to cross and can’t begin to thank you for bringing her into our lives.

I’ve attached a few photos of our love bug.




Adele (Noble Puppy)


Titan (Noble X Mattie) is doing great! He is growing fast.   He loves the kids and his big brother, Cowboy. He has completed his training on the Invisible Fence, but is never left alone outside.   He has started obedience school and he loves it.   He is very smart and motivated easily by food. I take him to work with me everyday and he is a hit with all the clients! Thanks for the sweet gorgeous puppy.

I will right a letter of referral soon.

Here are some pictures we wanted to share.



Hey there! Just wanted to take a minute and give you guys an update on Calvin, who has now been renamed Scooby!! He's doing awesome! He has adjusted very well, and become very attached to all of us. He loves playing frisbee, and going on walks. He's doing well being crated at night. And house training him is also going well. Every morning he waits outside with us for my son to get on the school bus. And every afternoon he waits for the bus to come home. Yesterday when the bus pulled up he realized that it meant Bradly was going to be home, he was jumping up and down and wagging his tail! He did it again today! It's so awesome to see how excited he gets!
Thanks again so much for what you guys do! He is such a joy!

Hi Everyone!

So, Sully hasn't changed all that much since we left your house on Thursday (it was beautiful, by the way), but we wanted to let you know that we made it home with Sully safely and he did AWESOME in the car!
Here are a few pictures we took when we picked up and when we got home and he met Andy for the first time.
We'll send more pictures and be sure to write a detailed testimonial about our experience. It was a pleasure working with you guys and meeting you and your family. Everyone was great and so hospitable!

Thanks again, we LOVE Sully and are looking forward to teaching him and watching him grow,
Talk to you soon!


Sully (Ruby x Blaze Puppy)

All we can say is THANK YOU  Rosie and Randy for giving us the best
puppy ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a delight he is. We have renamed Jake after that classic white
creature, who loves the water.....Moby !  He's got the best
personality, loves our girls and us, puts a smile on everyone one's
face, the hit of the vet's office, here in Massachusetts, the
accolades go on and on and on. What an awesome job you did raising
and socializing him. It shows . He's  a beauty to boot, as well. So
darn cute. I've taken a million photos already. My husband is
computer savvy. I'm not. I'll ask him to send a bunch of photos. We
live right on a lake, and he's already been swimming  several times.
My husband took this week off to be with him and start training.
We couldn't be happier and want to thank you profusely for giving us
this little joy. He arrived in great shape and showed no fear of the
hustle and bustle of the airport. He acclimated very quickly and only
had 1 accident in the house. He's smart, playful, and such a joy to
be with. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you.

our twin 9 year old girls, Nadia and Tanya

Dear Rosie and Randy,

      When our beautiful new puppy stepped cheerfully out of his crate at San Francisco airport we knew we'd hit the Labrador Retriever jackpot. Chief looked evenbetter than his pictures on your website. The ease of delivery was a pleasant surprise; plane on time, puppy crate clean, well supplied with food, instructions and papers. Best of all was a healthy, robust and perfect dog.  It's been a joyful adjustment and Chief (now renamed Archer) is well socialized thanks to his excellent start with you.
       Thank you!

Dear Rosie,
We have Welker, a puppy from Booker and Brooke.  We love him so much!  His personality is so sweet and funny.
Thank you again for choosing us the perfect puppy!    Allison, Bob and Welker


Been meaning to send you an email for awhile now. Just wanted to let you know what an awesome job Molly did bird hunting this past fall. I can't imagine what she will be like the next few years since I hear dogs come into their prime about their third or fourth year of hunting.
We did some day hunts close to home earlier in the season, then in October we went on a 3 day grouse hunt in northern MN and a 3 day pheasant hunt in SD. Molly was fantastic on these longer hunts. Our hunting season ended in mid-January hunting pheasant in the snow west of Madison, WI at a game farm. There Molly flushed and retrieved 31 pheasant in about 5 hours. Actually she flushed a few more than 31 but us hunters didn't quite hold up our end of the bargain with all of them.
Jack couldn't hunt this year but I plan to try him this fall. He is the cuddly one (if you can imagine an 80 pound dog wanting to crawl up into your lap when you are sitting on the couch).
The two of them get along great and sure miss each other when they are apart for a day or two.
I hope things are going well with you. Send me a note back and let me know what new litters you have.
Hi Rosie

Just a note to say how much we adore Diva and she is doing very well. It took a couple of days before Drake figured out she was here to stay and now cant keep her out of his sight:-) he has taken on job as "Dad"

Yesterday casey and I took Diva to the Stewarts for puppy playtime :-) OMG it was hilarious to watch the 2 of them. at first they were super shy, tails between legs the end of the evening they were wrestling around and Diva held her own with Gunner. Sometimes he would win though... they went on the first step of the pool and immediately wanted to swim. pretty funny stuff.

Will forward pics of her, Heather took some awesome ones of both pups, she was going to forward to you as well...

thanks again for making the process easy and we will keep in touch!Diva (Noble Pup)
Hi Rosie,

Copper arrived safely yesterday - much to my children's delight and surprise.  I had to pull my son early from school but it's all worth it - seeing the happiness on their faces.  Your detailed information on what to expect when we pick up a puppy is not only informative, but helped us in making Copper adjust well to his new surrounding.  The wood shaving litter is working really, really great.  We were so impressed that he was able to go there right away after preparing it just the way you said.  I never heard of that training myself, but my compliments to you for such wonderful start on it.  Thanks again!

I am enclosing few pictures taken right after we picked him up - and after he had enough of play and fun.
Thanks again for a wonderful, lovely, sweet, smart dog!

She's doing great!  We r working on house training. The weather is getting warmer so job is getting easier. She is going to the vet on monday and she loves bully sticks to chew. She is a wonderful puppy!

Rosie (Blaze x Cayenne Pup)

Hello Christensen Family:
I thought I would give you an update on Winnie.  She is so much fun and
very popular!!!  I took her to school on Friday.  She loved everyone.
She is not afraid of anything and loves baths.  She loves our cat and
our dog, Josie, is finally warming up to her.  They play all the time.
She is getting bigger by the minute and finally has settled into

sleeping almost through the night.
I've attached a few pictures.
We are very happy.

Jayne and ScottWinnie (Noble Pup)
Hi Rosie and Larissa,

I have attached a recent photo of Gus.  He just had his 4 month checkup yesterday and weighed in at 40 pounds.  I believe he is going to be a big boy.  So does the vet. It took nearly two hours to get out of the vet's office because so many people had to stop and admire and play with him.  He attracts a crowd wherever he goes! We just love our Gus and can't imagine not having him.

Best regards,

DennyGus (Cayenne x Blaze Pup)

We love our new puppy! Thank you for taking such good care of her. 

(Blaze and Scarlett Pup)

Hi Rosie and Larissa,
Just wanted to let you know that Gus, at 11 weeks, is doing very well.  He pretty much trained himself to ring a string of bells I hung on the door to let me know when he needs to go out.  That was about a week ago and he has not had one accident.  He comes (I use "Here"), sits, lies down, stays, and shakes on command.  He also fetches.  We are working on the no biting and no jumping on things and making some progress.

This little puppy is so smart, so beautiful, and so much fun, I can hardly believe it.  I will send an update with pictures in a couple of weeks.
Best regards,

Gus (Cayenne x Blaze Pup)


We wanted to share some pics we took of Lucy Rose (Cayenne x Blaze) in one one of them she is sitting so pretty next to Brody (Booker x Breezy).
I have been amazed at how well they have gotten along it has been wonderful for Brody to have her around and he has been so good with her "puppy play"!  She has also been so great with the kids and is doing pretty good with her potty training :)  As long as we keep on top of it she does great!!  Thank you again for the wonderful puppy!
Hi Larissa, Rosie and Randy -

We just wanted to send an email to let you know how wonderful Redgy is.  He is such an incredible addition to our family.  We all fell in love with him instantly.  He is beautiful and what a personality!

He caught on to potty training pretty quickly and stands next to the door to go outside.  He is very energetic and loves to play with the kids. 

We wanted to send you this update with some pictures.

We also want to thank you for the wonderful puppy!  Please let us know of any additional costs we still owe for the extra nights that he stayed with you.  (Also, do we need to send back the guarantee form?  I am a little confused by that)

Thanks again -

Denise, Brian, Bridget, Matt, and Mike

Hi Rosie and Larissa,
Just wanted to let you know that our little Gus is absolutely amazing.  He is so fun-loving and so smart.  He is a great little traveler (3 hour car ride home from the airport and not a peep).  He is already house trained; well that is probably a stretch (but no accidents yet, although I take him out every 30 to 60 minutes).  He put up quite a holler when he was put into his crate to rest but soon got over it.  Last night he slept all through the night without a squawk.

Just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate the care and training you gave to Gus.  Everyone is amazed at how healthy and beautifulhe is.

Best regards,

Gus (Blaze x Cayenne Pup)

Hi Rosie

Tisza is growing up so quickly and at 10 months is just about 70 lbs!  She graduated from her Puppy I class last fall (complete with cap and gown picture!) and we have already started working with her on training for hunting.  While limited in the Chicago, we have been working with her in the forest preserves using a clipped bird wing for retrievals.  She is not only beautiful, she's extremely smart and a quick learner.  We couldn't be happier with our little girl.

As you can see from the pictures, she LOVES the snow!

Hi, Randy and Rosie.  This is Brooke Hutchins from Omaha, Nebraska.  I
hope the new year finds you and your family doing well.    We are
thoroughly enjoying our beautiful Labs, Dakota (Booker X Midnight) and
Wyatt (Booker X Keeper).   They are so pretty and sweet and funny.  I
could go on about them all day.
Best regards,

Just wanted to touch base with you and let you know that Kiwi is doing wonderful.  She has the best disposition of a dog I have ever seen.  She is so gentle and loving yet she's an awesome retriever for waterfowl.  I may want to get with you in the near future for my dad.  If I purchase one for him, I want the white female (smallest pup) just like Kiwi.

Kind regards, Ron / JamaryKiwi (Booker x Sadie Pup)

Merry Christmas from Otter and The McArthur's - he is loving the snow:)  xoxo

Just wanted to take a minute and share some pictures of Trooper with you.  He recently passed his basic obediance classes, he did great! He weighed in at his last vet visit just over 60 lbs.  He really has just a sweet temperament, and plays very well with other dogs.  He is starting to enjoy the cooler weather out here, and is behaving himself on all his walks now.  Hope all is great with you and your family, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Otter (Booker x Dove Boy)

Rosie -- we are just loving Zeus.!!  He is a wonderful dog and growing more gorgeous each day.  We haven't had him weighed in a few weeks, but I'm guessing he must be well over 60 now -- he was 52lbs at 6 months.

Thought you'd like to see him in the snow in our yard from last week's blizzard.  The second picture is with his "girlfriend" Copper.  She's a fox red lab next door who is about 2 months older than him.  I love this shot of them playing with each other  They will wrestle for hours on end if we let them!  We are dog sitting Copper over Christmas Break so there will be plenty of fun had by them in the snow.    And then the picture we are using for Christmas cards of Zeus with the boys.

Everyone is amazed at his calm temperament and I'm quick to tell them we got him from Family Loved Labs!

Merry Christmas


Zeus (Midnight x Blaze Boy)

Hi Rosie-
It's hard to believe that Brody is 4 months old and such a handsome boy! Everywhere we go, people always say the same thing: such a beautiful dog!". He is a total lovebug, and has made our family complete is a way we could have never imagined. Of course we look at all the time, and can't wait until we're ready to find a sister for Brody!
We would love to correspond with the owners of Otter, same BookerxDove litter as Brody. Would you be so kind as to email them and ask if they would like to email exhange with Otter's brother?
Many thanks, can't wait to see your next white puppy arrival!

Teri and Paul

Brody (Dove x Booker Pup)


I'm so sorry I haven't sent pics lately of our beautiful boy Brody!!!  He is such a wonderful puppy we get nothing but compliments from everyone who has the pleasure of getting to know him.  He has fit in perfectly with our family and we can't even imagine life without our "brodyboy"!  I am sending some recent pics of him so you can see how big he is getting and also how handsome!  His last vet check was a week ago and he weighed in at 41lbs.  He's going to be quite a big boy :)

Thanks so much for our addition to the family.SaraBrody (Booker x Breezy Pup)
Brody is such a cuddler! He always lays across our feet when we're making dinner in the kitchen, and loves to prop his head on his little duck when he sleeps.Brody (Booker Pup)

Otter is the perfect example of "you get what you pay for"!  Not only is he super smart and beautiful, it is his calm temperament that makes him truly perfect!  I just can't tell you how much we love him and how he brightens everyday:)

Otter (Booker Pup)


I just wanted to update you on the pup we got from you. He is growing by leaps and bounds, aprox 50 pounds now. He is very active and loves to play with our son's yellow lab as well as their cocker spaniel. He loves to go boating and of course..SWIM!  And nothing beats a good roll in the mud or dirt! We have shared your web site with many people, as everyone thinks that Diesel is one of the "best looking dog" they have ever seen!

 Thanks again for our new family member!

Just wanted to send some new pics of Trooper.  He is doing great, just getting smarter everyday.  We have started daily walks with him, and he got a chance to visit, Sydney and Chip at Judi Browns house.  He has gained about 12 pounds since he got here, and all his vet check ups have been great.  Enjoy the photos.

Hello Rosie!

We thought we would send you a few pictures of Cayman ALL GROWN UP!!! Hard to believe she is about 6 1/2 months old already.  We don't know what we ever did without her with us - she is truly part of the family!!!
As you look through the pictures it won't take you too long to realize that Cayman is one very, very spoiled pup!  She is learning more and more tricks every day...and is a great listener!   People are very impressed when we tell them how old she is because she is such a good listener; especially for her age...of course she gets compliments on what a beautiful girl she is on a daily basis too! We spend a lot of time at our cabin - she LOVES the boat and swimming...oh and she likes riding on the jetski too (picture below).

Cayman is a great family dog that is forsure!  She is exactly what we had hoped for and more so THANK YOU AGAIN!!!

Hope you enjoy the pictures! (The pictures were taken from April - can see in the pictures how much she has matured even in the last 3 months!)

Travis, Nicole, Mya and Cayman

Cayman (Booker and Chloe Pup)

I thought that you would like to see a picture of the boys together.  Trooper spent the morning with us last Thursday and he was one tired puppy when he left.  He and Chip played together all morning Sidney is being the big brother and keeping watch over them. You are welcome to put the pictures on your website.
Sidney 3 years old and weighing in at 108.4 pounds (Booker/Sadie 2007), Chip 2.5 years old and weighing 80.4 pounds(Gunner/Mocha 2007) and Trooper 3 months old and weighing 23 pounds(Booker/Keeper 2010). 
What a group of HANDSOME BOYS from FAMILY LOVED LABS!  Beautiful Labs just keep being produced from you guys.
Did somebody say treat?

Big Brother and Little Brother.

Beautiful Boy Chip is hot and tired and looking for a cool spot for a nap, so he laid down in a puddle from the water bowls.

Hope you enjoy the pic B-Dawg having fun. What a great dog he is

Hi! Here's a couple pictures of Sophie. Sorry we haven't sent any for awhile. We can't believe she's a year old already! She is doing good, still very spoiled. She has her favorite spot on the couch where she likes to sleep. She's very lovable.

Have a good weekend!

Hi Rosie-
Brinkley is now almost 30 pounds!  This past weekend he jumped in my
couch for the first time, he was cute I had to take his picture!
Isn't he handsome - I adore him can you tell??
Brinkley is doing great, he just started puppy training
I will send you a few more pics.

I hope you're well.


Brinkley (Booker x Dyna Pup)

Just wanted to send some pictures of Rusty that were taken by our daughter.
This is our granddaughter, Emma, in the picture with him.  They have become best friends.   We have purchased a home in Washington, PA. and are spliting our time between PA and VA.  Rusty is growing into a wonderful addition to our family and everyone believes he is part human!  Well hope all is well with your family and the puppies you continue to provide  for families like ours.  Enjoy your summer.  Becky and family

We just wanted to share this picture with you.  As you can see since the day that we received Riley (a surprise to the family from my husband - thanks Rosie for helping him keep the secret)  the kids have forgotten where their beds are.  Riley is an awesome dog and we can�t thank you enough.  Riley has already learned how to sit, stay and give both paws.  What a great family pet.from the Smith Family

"Although Bugs LOVES to hunt and is excellent at it, he's also is the BEST FAMILY DOG, we love him so much! It would be so hard to think what life would be without him in our lives..  Thanks again for the loving dog .. God Bless  .. Yours Tyrone Bugs (Gunner Pup)I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU to you for starting her off on the litter
training!!!  I never would have believed that a puppy at 8 weeks old
could be trained to use a litter box, but the proof is in this simple
but PROFOUND fact...she has not messed in our house once!  Not only
that, she has only used the litter box a few times and goes outside
every time we take her out!!!  This has made her a COMPLETE joy to have
in our house!We passed the AKC Good Canine Citizen and the Therapy Dog International tests.  We work through the Coulee Region Humane Society.  It's been a great experience and he's doing well.  I'm glad he kept his "puppy face"!!  I truly believe he could have been a service dog in a variety of settings.  I'm sure his little sister will do well.  That's awesome.  There is a lot of research on how dogs are helpful to kids with autism as well. Your dogs fit the service model well.TammyCharlie (Booker Pup)
Hi Randy and Rosy-
Please see the attached letter of reference I am happy to provide. We've had our little Sonny almost a year now and couldn't be happier. Thanks so much for working with us to provide us with such an important part of our lives- our dog! We love him so much!
 Sincerely,   Kelly

I just wanted to follow up and let you know how happy we are with our little guy Sonny (Coco x Gunner). He is almost 1 year old and we couldn�t have asked for a better fit for our family! He is such a delight and he has such a fun, loving and CALM disposition. He listens very well and gets along with every dog he meets (including the two Springer Spaniels my mom has). We took him up to our cabin during the summer and he loved the water! He is also learning to use his nose, as he is sniffing things out left and right. One of my favorite things about Sonny is that he is acuddle-bug. He loves to sit on the couch with me and snuggle right before he goes to bed. He is a very calm and loving boy.Thank you for allowing us to come up and visit your family and your dogs. It was so nice to see where the dogs were kept and how much love they get from your family (especially Trevor!). You were so helpful in working with us to choose the best litter/match for our needs. I would highly recommend Family Loved Labs to anyone that wants a calm, loving, beautiful Labrador. Please feel free to send this to anyone that needs a reference. I would be more than happy to answer any questions/concerns they would have, and send them pictures!

Thanks again for a providing such great customer service and I can�t even tell you how happy we are with our little guy.

Thanks again!!!


Rosie and Randy:

Meeting Bravo was such a magical experience. So, therefore, his name will be Magic. He is so smart, playful, fearless, and full of spirit. He moves around with such confidence, and will definitely grow up to be a great dog - and a showstopper at that! He is adapting very quickly. We are proud to have him as part of the family.

Here are some pictures of my daughter, Sapphira, with Magic in the snow. We will send updated pictures as he grows.

Thanks so much!

Bets to you all!



Bella (Cali x Gunner Pup)


Well we have started with basic training ourselves so far. She does however start puppy kindergarten in 2 weeks. She knows how to sit, lay down, paw. We are working on stay, and she is catching on quick. Everyone was so impressed with the fact that she could sit and lay down after the first week of having her.  Her house training has gone AMAZING! She was potty trained within the first three weeks. We used a bell on the door with her potty training, and it has worked great. She is using it all by herself now! She does like to nibble quite a bit, but she is getting better every day. She is such a joy to have around, we are so pleased with her. A few of her favorite things are laying by the heat vent in the morning, jumping in the bathtub and drinking from the faucet, and belly rubs. Hope you and your family are doing well. Thank you so much for our AWESOME girl, we love her so  much!


He's already warming up to his new surroundings.  Absolutely adorable!
I will send new pics soon.

Thanks Much-

Hi Rosie: just an update on Abby: still the super dog!! she is also the most beautiful and friendly and loving dog in the world...thanks for my best friend...pic of her swimming in the cold water with her golden friend on my profile

Hi Randy, Rosie and family, well we got her home late last night, with absolutely no issues. She wined a little bit out of your driveway and never again since. We fed her on schedule during the drive home and stopped for bathroom breaks each time, with absolutely no accidents, she was quite the trooper. The whole family was completely surprised,almost in tears. Both my kids have still not gone to bed, they have become her official parents. They pet her and love her until she falls asleep in their arms. I think they officially named her Riley. She's a very wonderful dog and the whole family thanks you immensely. Thanks Rob  (Booker x Dyna Pup Diamond - "Riley")


Bella is the most loving, wonderful, beautiful, obedient, smart dog in the whole world.

Booker x Pearl Pup


 Booker's puppies were exceptionally beautiful with wonderful, easy-going adaptable temperaments. Our vet said they were the healthiest, best-looking litter of puppies she had seen in several years. Randy and Rosie are great people to work with. They are ethical, knowledgeable, and they are willing to go the extra mile to ensure the health and happiness of their puppies. They love their dogs so much. I would strongly recommend Family Loved Labs to anyone looking for a great lab and a positive buying experience. Thanks Randy and Rosie!

Good evening Rosie and Family-

I wanted to give you a quick email update on Cayman.  She has been a great addition to our family.  As you can see by the attached photos she is COMPLETELY spoiled!!! She is doing great with the potty training, just a few accidents here and there, but pretty good.  We have her on a consistent schedule which has made it easier to work on the potty training.
She is getting bigger by the day - she has gained 5 pounds!

We were actually at the vet for the first time since we got her.  Everything looks great - she is a completely normal, healthy lab.  Of course the staff loved her coloring!!!

I have attached a few pictures.

I hope you had a blessed Holiday Season and wish you a GREAT 2010!

Travis, Nicole & Mya

Wanted to send you a picture of Hero! He is doing great, and we absolutely love him. He is the best. Thank you so much. All of our friends are wanting to know where we got him we are sending them your way! Hope you had a great Christmas and a great New Year!

Troy and Deidre

Thought I would finally email you to tell you how very happy we are with Maggie.  She is an amazing pup.

She looks just like her father.....beautiful and you are right, everyone wants to see her and pet her.  I won't let them pet her but I let each person take one or two photos. She poses for photos, very pretty.  She will be sign autographs soon.

I have attached 2 photos of Maggie with her boys - Truely proud!

God Bless and thanks for the help.

Hi Rosie! 
I've been thinking of you!   These were taken today. Emma is a love! She is smart and so affectionate. We cannot begin to tell  you how happy we are that she is ours! Please forgive the length of time since I've sent you pictures, I just don't know where the time goes. By the way is it my imagination or does she look like Booker? Wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas and all the best in the new year!Emma ( Summer x Booker Pup)


We are having a good time with Sophie, she is such a sweet lovable girl. I can't believe she is 7 months old already. She always wants to be close to where we are. She is also very smart. Dale took her to his family's cabin during hunting and everyone loved her. One of his brothers wanted to take her home. They were impressed with how many commands she knew and how happy she was. Everyone who sees her comments on how beautiful she is and her stocky build. She loves to retrieve and she loves peanut butter. We did have issues early on with her biting and jumping but they have gotten so much better since she's gotten older. We love her!

hey rosie just thought youd like to see a few pictures of gunner he is doing great thanks again.

Hi Rosie,

I wanted to let you know how Barkley is doing and share a couple of pictures now that she's one year old.  As you can see, she has grown a lot and weighs about 80 pounds.  She is very healthy.  I think she looks a lot like her dad, Booker!  You can see it in her eyes and she has a thick throat and chest as well.  She is beautiful and very sweet!  Remember when I told you she doesn't really go after the ball or swim yet?  Well all that changed.  I now can't keep her out of the water, she absolutely loves it.  In fact, she jumped off the boat in the middle of Puget Sound this summer.  Fortunately she was wearing her life vest so we had a handle to lift her out of the water and pull her back in the boat!!  She ignores other dogs and is focused on the tennis ball when we go to parks.  She is 100% lab! People comment about how calm she is and they are so surprised when they learn she is just one year old.  She still goes to day care about twice a week and she is the owner's favorite!  I'm thinking about continuing her Good Citizen Canine training now that she is older and has more focus.  I have no doubt she can learn whatever I teach her.

Every now and then she visits with Charlie Brown (Derek and Erin's pup) who moved up to Seattle from LA in July.  Charlie and Barkley just love each other and are non-stop when they get together.  Charlie is doing really well too.  He's two months younger than Barkley but really well behaved and healthy.  Erin and Derek couldn't be happier with him.  Barkley and Charlie are very happy labs and are very loved and well cared for.

In the last photo, Barkley is wearing her Pink engagement collar she received from Charlie!  I told you they loved each other.  :)  And, I think the pink collar is particularly appropriate since she was "Miss Pink" when she was first born.

I check your website every now and then to look at your puppies and see how you're all doing.  I'm so tempted to get another pup from you but Barkley keeps us plenty busy.  Thank you for breeding such great pups!  I never thought I'd have another lab as wonderful as Quincy, my white lab that passed away just over a year ago now, but Barkley is just as sweet.  She brings so much happiness into my life and I can't tell you how much I appreciate the strong foundation you and your family have laid with her.

I'll send more updates on Barkley over time.

All my best to you and your family.



Barkley (Booker x Sadie pup)

 Hi Rosie,

                    Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how Duggie( Gunner Mocha 08) and Bear E.White (Booker Marcie 09 MB-3) are doing.  Bear E. White is growing so much.  At 6 months and 3 weeks he weighs 75 pounds.  Bear E. and Duggie are always following each other around.  They are contently playing together and running around.  That is why I would recommend getting 2 labs.  Even when I don't get to take them for there daily walk (they usually go at least 5 days a week) they do get there exercise. Bear E. always tries to put toys in Duggies mouth to get him to play, which seems to always work, and Duggie does the same thing.  Bear always has to have something in his mouth to carry around.  Very seldom do you see him without anything in his mouth.  I need to take up bird hunting since he seems to be such a natural at retrieving when we play in the yard.  Bear seems to get along great with other dogs besides Duggie.  You must socialize them very well, as Duggie was very good with other dogs and to have Bear do the same it must be because of the breeder.  They both shed a lot less them my yellow lab that I use to have, which is a good thing.  I could not be any happier with my 2 guys!  I hope you and your family have a marry Christmas and a happy new year.

Hi Rosie,
I hope you're doing well. Hugo is doing really well! He is about 65 pounds now of solid muscle. It's amazing how strong he is! He is such a sweet little boy. He is very smart and loves to play and go for walks. It's amazing to see just how smart he is - you can look in his eyes and see him thinking when he's presented with a challenge or a situation in which he has to make a decision. He loves people and is always friendly and excited to meet anyone. I don't have many pictures of him at the moment but I've attached a picture from last weekend. If I get a chance to take any more I will send them your way. I highly recommend that anyone who wants a Labrador purchase one of your Labs. Hugo is thekindest most loving dog I've ever met and we are very thankful to have him. He reminds me a lot of Dyna in the brief time I met her.

Take Care!

Dear Rosie,

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the millionth time for our girl Kai. We celebrated her birthday at the end of October and have been reflecting on how much fuller our lives have been in the past year since we've had her.  Kai is the sweetest, silly-est, most lovable girl in the world. She has fun going for walks in the woods or on the beach and just LOVES the water.  She is a big snuggle bug and we love it, though don't have the heart to tell her that she is not really a lap dog.  You and your family were so wonderful to get to know and we are just so thankful for all the hard work you did with her.  I wish we lived closer so you could see what a lovely lady Kai's become.  We love her so much and are incredibly grateful that we found you!I hope that this finds your family well and thank you for raising such wonderful pups!
Kathryn, Joe and Kai

Hi Rosie,

We just wanted to let you know that Missy made it to our house safe and sound on Saturday night and is doing very well.  We can tell she is well-trained and she has already brought a lot of happy times to our kids (and us).

Thank you again for your flexibility and all of the information you provided to us. ~ Scott and Melanie

BDAWG (Booker  x Brook Son) We love him so muchhhhhhhhhhhhh He has brains and beauty!  He's the best looking dog on he sidewalk!

Gunner has been such and enjoyment to have . After a few days of adjusting to his new home he is as happy as can be. He hasn't had an accident in the house and knows how to sit. He is a beautiful dog and extremely intelligent and curious. He seems to want to examine everything for himself and loves to sit and watch me when I am working on something. He seems to be getting used to his daily routine and I receive numerous compliments on how well he behaves as well as his temperament. Thank you for everything Brian.

Hi Rosie and Randy,

Our little girl arrived last night and is as wonderful as we were hoping she would be.  She is such a sweetie and is just gorgeous.  The kids absolutely LOVE her (as do we!) and she is already a well loved member of our family.  We think her name will be Bailey.  We are attaching a photo of her with Isabella and Cooper.

Thanks so much!

Happy Birthday Rumple!! And Happy 11th Anniversary Kolin and Ellen

Ruby and Tiger Red Puppy...... RUMPLE IS AN AWESOME BOY!! 

I just want to share my experiences with anyone considering adopting a dog from Rosie and Randy from Family Loved Labs.  When my husband and I starting to think about adopting a dog, we weren't sure where to go or how to determine a quality breeder.  Like many people - we started to look at websites of breeders.  I knew that we were looking for a breeder that had good looking dogs with quiet temperament.  We aren't a family of hunters, show or any other competitive interests - but wanted a dog that would take to a life of lots of outdoor activities and a great family companion.  Websites are a first step in uncovering a quality breeder - but nothing can compare to talking to and visiting with the dogs and family - so that's what I did.  Started the conversation.

In speaking with Rosie over the phone, it was very clear to me that she cared a great deal about her dogs and the potential homes that her labs would go into.  She asked me a number of thoughtful questions that any caring owner would want to know - where the dog would live, our interests in labs and what kind of life would a dog have with us, in addition - we discussed the adoption process - puppy socialization - her family activities with all of the dogs and puppies and a whole host of other topics of interest to both of us.  We decided to move forward and visit her home and the puppies up for adoption.

My husband and I visited Rosie and family a few weeks ago.  We were welcomed by her two youngest children - Larissa and Trevor - and the cutest puppies, Bear and Boy 2.  A moment later - Rosie and Randy joined us in the grass - playing with the puppies.  As we talked to the family and played with the puppies - it was so obvious to us that each member of the family had such a love for the dogs in their care.  Larissa brought Gunner (the dad) to meet us and she showed us how well trained he is.  She has trained Gunner so well - in fact she going to state with him soon.  She was proud to show all that they do together as a team - and he was happy to receive affection from all of us after a job well done.  Trevor brought out a few more dogs for us to meet - all very friendly and very social.  Trevor had fun showing us some of his favorite times spent with his dog.  All the while we were able to observe the dynamic and personalities of the dogs.  We then were able to meet Mocha (the mom) and see where the puppies are being raised and cared for.  All of which was very clean and comfortable for the dogs.  They have a huge space for dogs to spend time outside and run.  The  housing for the dogs is very organized.  We were impressed with all that we saw.

We came away from that visit with a wonderful sense for the kinds of labs they raise and the environment in which they are cared for.  They are a family of integrity and each one takes personal responsibility for caring for the labs - whatever their role - and breeding great labs.  Their website reflects a dedicated family in love with labs - and that is exactly what we experienced first hand.  We would recommend them to anyone.  Julia & Bill

Hi Rosie. Just a quick not to keep u up to date on Abby. She is such a beautiful dog... She is still pure white and has the most beautiful head! Looks like she will end up looking just like her dad. I'm going to have her spayed next month...Sure u don't want to breed her? She is also the smartest, most affectionate dog I have ever had. Although she is still crated at night. she has a bed in the living room and sits like a princess on it!! lol I have a huge kennel in the back and if I have to go out on nice days she sits on her lounge chair in the kennel...sooo funny...Thanks will send pics soon...I love this dog so much

Hi Rosie,

Sorry it's taken us so long to update you with pictures of Yoda.  He's growing so fast!  He's already learned how to sit, come and drop, but we just started puppy class to reinforce everything and to learn more commands.  He loves to play fetch.  We hope to get him in the water soon so he can start swimming.  We know he's going to be a great hunting dog because he already loves to chase the bugs and toads in our yard! He loves people and other dogs and most people are amazed at how calm he is for being so young.  He's been an absolute joy, we don't know what we would do without him.

Take care,

Jason & Sara and Yoda

Hello Rosie,

Greetings from Montana.

I hope this note finds you and your family doing well.   Here is a picture
of Duke which I took last week.  He is now just bit over one year old.
Every day he becomes more handsome....

All the best,

Hi! Here is a picture of Sophie I just took today. We weighed her the other day and she is 35 pounds. She graduated from puppy kindergarten on Monday. We are so glad we took her there, we learned so much and she is so smart. We want to get her into the next class but it sounds like it might not be until next year.

Canine Good Citizen

 Rosie, Our boy Chip (Aka Gunner Jr.) (Gunner/Mocha 07) has passed his test and is now a Canine Good Citizen.  He did so well and completed each of the ten tasks the first time without having any redo's.  We are so proud of him and his accomplishments.  He is such a good boy and has not only calmed down immensely since coming to live with us.  He is now sleeping at by our bed on his own Costco bed at night.  He sleeps all night without a peep from him.  He doesn't get up or wander during the night.  Thanks for sending another sweet smart boy to the Brown family.

Randy and Rosie,

I am happy to announce that Charlie passed the Canine Good Citizen & Pet therapy international test last night!!!  He is officially a Pet Therapy Dog!!!  I'm so excited to get him started.  First there is a bunch of paperwork to be filed then we can get busy!  He is so good with little kids I'm hoping we can make some visits to the pediatric cancer unit at the hospital here in La Crosse.  They are big fans of Therapy Dogs.

We'll keep you posted!!


    Rosie and all,

I am attaching a few pictures of Charlie "Bear" since he just turned one last week.  He is an awesome dog - he definitely looks like his Daddy in the one picture.  we will be taking the Pet Therapy /Good Canine Citizen test in a couple of weeks.  He will be a great therapy dog - his temperament and disposition are perfect for this. He has lots of puppy and human friends for hiking and play dates.   Everybody knows "CHARLIE"!!!!  He loves music and likes to go to summer concerts in the park.  Thanks for breeding a great line of labs!!     Tammy

"Hi Rosie - Just an update about Abby...She is the smartest, most loving young dog din the world!!!  I thank you!!  She swims all the time...just crashes into the water!  I too her to a match show the other day to "socialize"  Without a doubt she had more people stop to comment on her beauty and friendliness then any other dog.  She was in heaven.  I went into a handlers class for fun.  and one of the judges worked with us separately, because she was so young..  Such fun...she will be great at obedience and maybe agility.  she taught herself to sit...   Hope all's well...Liz"


Here are a few pictures of Ziggy.  She is doing great and is a wonderful
dog.  We all love her much!!

Hi Rosie!

We wanted to update you on Miss Coco Bella!  She is doing so great!  She has adapted quite well into our family.

Bella loves the water - she has surprised us a few times by jumping into the bath tub with the girls, jumping into a river and is not shy about jumping into any random pool.  It is so hilarious.  She is very smart and learns quickly...she has learned to sit, shake and down.  She also loves dirty socks and shoes.  She is potty trained and loves her kennel.  She is so beautiful - a very rich dark brown with those big green eyes.  We can't believe how fast she is growing.  The little fat puppy is gone and she is turning into a very slender girl with  legs!

We love her to pieces!  Here are some pics of her.

We have recommended Family Loved Labs to tons of people.  Thank you so much!

Hi Rosie and Randy!

Abbi is still doing fantastic here, up at the camp. The weather has not been pleasent - but that does not get her down.
She is getting really big! She is almost as tall as our other dog - but Abbi is all legs. Here are some pictures of her....

Abbi loves the water in many ways... She has been in swimming a few times, loves to retrieve, she also enjoys blowing bubbles in the lake and drinking from the bottom of her water bowl. She still is a foody dog and will eat ANYTHING in sight.

She gives the older dogs a run for their money when it's play fighting time - another one of her favorite past times!

Hope all is well,

Jessica, Jeremy and Abbi

Hello Rosie Family,Just dropping by for a quick update on Harley (Mattie's Boy2). He is 6 months old as of July 1st and 65 pounds. He is doing GREAT, such a good dog. He has completed the Super Good Manners Program @ Super Dooper Dog Training and has received his medal and certificate for the AKC S.T.A.R Puppy Program. Thanks again for such an amazing dog! We love him so!

Dear Rosie,

I can't believe a month has gone by since Hugo flew into Philadelphia and joined the family. He is such a joy and truly an amazing puppy.Geoffrey and I would like to thank you for all of the hard work and love you put into breeding and raising puppies. When I first visited your home and learned about how you breed, I was amazed at the cleanliness of the puppies' home from birth to adoption age. The small houses with multiple rooms you've constructed for the mother and her litter to live in was amazing. I felt confident that the puppies were receiving wonderful care as they grew.Since Hugo has arrived at our home, I have been shocked by how well-behaved he is and intelligent. He's very loving and always wants to be near us. He's almost 12 weeks old now and he is house-trained!! Your work with him has put him far ahead of most dogs. He knows to go to the door and sit there. He even rings chimes next to the door to tell us he needs to go out. He learns everything very quickly and can already sit, lay down, come, stay, woof and shake on command. When it's time for a meal, he sits quietly and waits for me to tell him it's ok to approach his bowl and eat.Hugo is currently in Puppy Kindergarten at Petsmart and we are proud to share that the teacher says that he is the top of the class!

Training Hugo has helped us realize how lucky we are to have adopted him from you and that most puppies out there would be a nightmare and take forever to train compared to him!

Attached are some pictures of him so you can see him now.

Thank you for everything!

Laura & Geoffrey



Hugo (Dyna and Booker Pup)





We just wanted to give you an update on Sophie and figured you might want to see a picture of her. She is growing a lot! We are enjoying her very much even though she keeps us very busy! We took her for a short ride in the truck tonight to see how she reacted and she kind of freaked out but calmed down by the end.

Sophie (Booker and Dyna pup)

  I just wanted to let you know that Bear is doing fine.  Duggie and Bear have been getting along so good together.  I could not have hoped for such wonderful dogs.  I would defiantly encourage any one who has one of your dogs to get a second one.  I think it is the best thing I ever did for Duggie is to get Bear.  They just love to play together.  Even when they are not playing Bear follows Duggie around like a little puppy dog that he is.  Bear is getting so big.  He is already 27 pound at 11 weeks.  ~ Baker Family

Sorry it�s taken so long to get back to you. Cowboy is such a wonderful dog and so very, very smart. He has grown quite a bit and will be  6 months old as of July 1st. Can�t keep him out of the lake which is his back yard but that�s ok he loves it.



Cowboy (Gunner and Mattie Pup)



Hello Rosie,

I hope this note finds you and your family doing well.  Duke has grown at a
very rapid rate, and its hard to believe that he is about to turn 10 months.
His weight has stabilized, finally, at a whopping 92 pounds!!! And none of
that is fat.  I think that we should of named him the beast instead of Duke.
He is a real handsome fellow.

In April we went to Florida and he finally got a chance to get into the
water.  He just loved it, and he has now become a very strong swimmer.  He
leaves ginger in the dust, granted she does the same to him when its time to
We introduced Ginger and Duke to
a canoe, last month and he loves to go out on the canoe.  He actually jumps
in it and sits down while the canoe is still on the grass.
His personality is still evolving, but his heart remains as white as his
color.  He is extremely well natured, is always in a great mood, and he is
just a joy to be around.  He treats Ginger as his best friend and mother.
Wherever she goes, you will see Duke not far behind.

Have a great week, and will send you some pictures of Duke as he matures.

All the best to you and to your family,


Duke (Summer and Booker Pup)


Shiloh is a happy dog & always smiling!


Shiloh (Pearl x Booker Pup)


I just wanted to send you a few pictures of Porter at 8 months. He is amazing and truly loves the water as you will see in the pictures, I can't keep him out of it! I hope all is well with you and your family, thanks again for an amazing dog.
Porter (Gunner x Cali Pup)


He loves everybody.He is the smartest Lab I've had and is a natural bird lover, he will hunt with me this season coming up. We named him Bugs McSweeney the love bug, he looks like our Pastor.he loves the truck and car rides and will hang with me all day, gets me up every morning at 6:00 AM , loves the water jumps of the dock and goes for the birds. He is our love bug for sure.

I hope all is well and all the gogies are happy like Bugs Thanks again , Bugs makes our Heaven on earth .... God Bless You and Have a Blessed Day.. Tyrone

Bugs (Gunner Pup)

Hi! Dakota is fantastic. He is still the best dog EVER!!!! We still can't get over how obedient he is.

Hi Rosie,

I hope this note finds you all well and enjoying Spring.  I just wanted you to know that Chip has completed and graduated from Intermediate Obedience Training at Petsmart and will begin the advanced Obedience Training  in Mid May.  He did very well in the class and Sidney came to class to congratulate him on his progress,

Hi Rosie-

I wanted to send you an update on Bishop.  He is the most incredible dog in the entire world.  Our three children absolutely adore him & he couldn't possibly be more wonderful with them.  He loves hiking, the beach & the snow...I've attached a couple of pictures.  The only problem is that, while he grows bigger every day, he still adamantly believes that he is a lap dog :)

We've decided that we want to get a second dog for our family & based on Bishop's disposition, we're confident that you raise the best puppies ever!!!

Thanks so much!

Devon, John, Chase, Thomas, Charlotte & Bishop

Today we took Shiloh to the St. Augustine beach & she loved it!  I was able to capture her first steps into the ocean.


Shiloh (Booker x Pearl Pup)

Hi Rosie!


Abbi is doing amazing. Everyone loves her and wants to take her home. Even my friends who are afraid of dogs. LOL.
She is loving her new home and all her new friends. We have been taking TONS of photos!!

Family Loved Labs definitely holds true to its name! We picked up our new white lab puppy from the Christensen�s beautiful farm. Our new puppy, Abbi, welcomed us at the door. We spent time visiting with the family and our new puppy. The Christensen�s are a very caring and loving family who are devoted to breeding and nurturing dogs and their puppies.

The facility was very clean and well organized.  The puppies and nursing moms have a very comfortable and loving environment  which makes for a happy and healthy litter of pups.  The puppies have a lot of human contact and attention which makes it much  easier to adjust to a new family home.
Abbi has adjusted very well to her new home, dogs and other family members. She is a very beautiful and well tempered pup.  We are happy she has joined our family. Family Loved Labs is a perfect place to get a perfect four-legged family addition.  We would definitely return to Family Loved Labs for another pup. We highly recommend getting your new addition to your family from Family Loved Labs.

Abbi (Pearl x Booker Pup)
Thanks so much, We love her

Jessica and Jeremy

We headed down to the desert for a friends wedding.  Lots of hiking, Rumple's first swim



More to come



Rumple (Ruby x Tiger Pup)

 He is doing great!. He sits, lays down on command, and is retrieving the newspaper when it is not to heavy. (he's only 10 weeks)  Sleeps on the bed with her and his big brother.  Spoiled rotten!   A more spoiled rotten dog you will not find.
Christensen Family,

Just a quick note to let you know Harley Bear is doing great! 15 weeks today, 30 lbs. He has grown so fast. Everyone comments on his big paws, even his Vet. He learns very quickly and is very smart. He can sit, lay down, roll over, shake (both paws), high five, speak and stay on command. He is kennel trained. Harley has slept thru the night since his first week here. My son and him are inseparable, they absolutely love each other. He loves to nibble Joshua's ears. He has also learned not to bite too hard. If he gets to excited and rough while playing, just say "Ouch" and he'll softly nibble at you. We are so grateful that we have him in our family!

Thanks Again,

Mary, Jason, Joshua
& Harley Bear

Harley Bear (Mattie x Gunner Pup)

Rosie and Randy,

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know I love my puppy!!!

He is everything that I was looking for in a male lab.
So beautiful and a fantastic dispostion!!! I just want to squeeze him everyday!

Thank you for such a great dog. You guys are doing a great job!
His name is Samson......

Dear Rosie and Randy,
Now at almost 5 months and just over 40 lbs, Charlie Gunner is doing well and quickly made a place and routine for himself in his new home in Alton, Ill. He has been well attended to by our vet friend and neighbor, is pretty well housebroken, gets plenty of exercise, is responding to a few commands and gets pretty excited about a couple of his dog friends in the neighborhood. As you would expect, he loves to fetch, maintains quite a high energy level, is fanatical about birds and does not seem to be gun shy. We are planning to have some more advanced training for him soon and, when the weather warms, I'm anxious to introduce him to swimming.
Attached are some pictures of Charlie with our 8 year old Reed, Reed with a neighbor friend, and our four kids at Christmas.     While Charlie can at times be a bit overpowering for Reed, they clearly are best pals.
I hope the Minnesota winter is not too bad this year for you and that your new and upcoming litters remain successful.
Best regards,   ~   George


Charlie Gunner (Cali x Gunner Pup)





Rosie, Randy

Just to let you know that everything went well.  We picked him up in the airport and it was truly an amazing moment for the whole family and especially to my daughter, Alexis who had no idea about Cid until she saw the crate.

He is a gorgeous pup and he got plenty of compliments as we walk towards the parking lot.  He has an excellent temperament.  He loves to play, eat and take naps.  I love it especially when he would cuddle with me and sleep on my lap for long period of time....

I made an appointment with the local veterinarian on Monday, April 13...  I will definitely keep you guys updated and pictures will soon follow.

Thank you once again.

Edgar, Arlene, Mark and Alexis





She is doing well. Certainly able to hold her own. Very active!!! Caliber has taken her under his wing...God love him for only being a puppy himself he has stepped in to take care of her. They are going to be great pals. Sleeping will be getting tuffer they are going to take over the king size bed. She is adorable!!!! Her pink diamond collar sets off beautiful on her white fur...Shes styling and attitude to show it off !!!!!!
Thanks ~Christa

Just a quick note to let you know that Roscoe is doing great here in
Northwest Florida.  He knows his name, he knows the sit command, and
is leash training.  He has learned to use the dog door to our
backyard.  He is going to be a fantastic addition to our family. ~tama


Roscoe (Pearl x Booker Pup)
Hey Rosie, It was so nice talking with you & I'm glad to see you got the pictures of our handsome boy Chester. Everyday Chester shows us his love, devotion & his ability to learn. He's such a pleasure to be with. We had no idea what kind of dog he would turn out to be. We were pleasantly surprised. He is truly the best dog I have ever had!!!!!!  I have asked myself how did we get so lucky to have a wonderful dog? Then I realized it was not luck at all. It was because of you & your family. You knew what kind of dog we were getting & I thank you for letting us have Chester. He is a perfect match for our family.  ~Take Care. Cathy

Hey Rosie, it's been a while and I'm sorry
I haven't sent pictures sooner, but here are a few of Chester. As you can see he is growing
like a weed. We took him to the vet on jan9 for his last check -up . His weight is 48.5 pounds.
The Vet said he will be a very large Lab. He also said that a Lab will always have something
in his mouth( that their job). Which we have notice. Little concerned about the rocks he gets,
don't want him to swallow them. But besides that everything is going well. He loves the tub.
When it's time for Eric's bath I have to close the door because if not Chester would be in it.
He enjoys watching the birds at the feeder. When they fly off he wants to chase them. He still
plays with his toy birds(had to sew them up a few times) He likes to CHEW on his chewy/bones.
Think goodness it's not the furniture. He also likes to jump up on the kitchen chairs to watch us
play dice. All I know is that Chester is so smart!!!!! I swear he understands what we are saying.
I have never had a dog like him before. So thank you again for giving us such a wonderful dog. ~CathyChester (Booker x Summer 08)   Hey Rosie and family,
Its Kasie and Trey, we got Caleb from the Gunner litter back in November. First i have to say i got Caleb as an early christmas gift and it was wonderful. He is beautiful and biult so nicly. We have had the time of our life with him. We thought at first that he was going to be laid back but we were wrong ha-ha he is into everything and loves to run. He is so smart he already has learned to sit, shake, high five, lay, roll-over and play dead ha-ha. I must say the high five was pretty impressive and he does it so well. He loves the water if you are in the shower he like to stick his head in and get wet and lick the water.We bought him a stuffed animal toy duck that makes duck calls and he goes nuts over it, thats his favorite toy. Trey wants to send him to hunting school. He is a beautiful chocolate color and everyone says how cute he is. He loves going places with us he takes over the passenger seat ha-ha. Again thank you so much for such a great puppy that i know will be an amazing dog. I have attached a couple of pictures of him he gets bigger and bigger each day. We love having him around so much that we are thinking the we will get a white/yellow lab from you sometime.Caleb  (Gunner x Cali Pup)


I just got back from his first Vet visit and everyone there just
loved him and thought he was the "best looking lab pup they
had ever seen"! I agreed.   Here are a few more pics of Porters
first week at his new home. Also, he is doing great and really
seems to love it here with me.   Thank you, Jeff

Hi Rosie!

Rover (Merlot x Hero) is doing great! He is now 13 weeks old and has adjusted very well to his new home. He was very easy to potty train and follows commands well already! He loves cuddling with us and playing with his toys. We couldn't be happier! Thank you guys so much!
