Gage’s Story:

Gage is a dream. Been the nicest stud boy to work with for 7 yrs and then was neutered March 2022. I always received compliments in his looks, his stature and shape of head. On top of that he is a regular nice guy and never alpha. He achieved his JH and a few legs Seniors with AKC but then I retired from competing. I loved what he put into his offspring and so did the adopters. Very birdy. He sleeps in my bed when not outside having fun.

Gents Legends:


  • RIP Love’s Dr. Einstein Master Hunter
  • DOB 3/22/2021

12 years ago I so chose to keep Einstein out of an accidental litter, neutered and competed with for 7 yrs. He was my guy, my pet, never made a dime on him, slept next to me in bed as my body pillow next to me, my protector, my protector of the home and everyone liked him.

He was a talent in the field on birds. Never missed a mark and lined all and very one of his blinds. Just for giggles and to show the Judges at comps I had control of him I would give him a sit whistle right at the bird (after he ran or swam a straight line), he held steady, looked down at the bird, up at me, back down at the bird and then looked back at

me…whistle, grab the bird and cruise in….until he decided one day enough is enough I am going to hold onto the bird and not give it up. Competing then was over. It was ok…..he had his MH title at age 3, I wasn’t breeding with him and he became my sidekick to train young dogs with for retrieves and steady work.

I started my business training Labs and breedings 12 yrs ago. Am I a wreck he is gone? You betcha. I will miss him terribly so each and everyday til I see him in Heaven. Speaking of Heaven, Ginger his sister has been waiting for him. They were best of friends growing up together, always together, one waiting for the other.

11:30 AM, he left me but at 11:31 AM he was back in his prime running along with his sister Ginger and his Mom, Grace.

Einstein a month ago started coughing and an elevated temp. Did an x-ray and saw one of his fatty tumors on his side had grown into his lung and there was a tumor. He was coughing up blood. After a month, he had lost 15 pounds, spitting up blood from time to time, anemic and temp went away.

I did bucket list for him this week: swimming after a few bumpers a day and a few frozen pigeons and then finally gave him a live bird and let him do what he had desired to do for his entire life….squish it, eat it and swallow it. It made his life worthwhile being able to do this. And best part, I let him and he did it right in front of me.

Einstein was a tall big boy, not along the lines of my usual style of breeding but didn’t matter…..he went out and retrieved and both he and I had fun. I’ve been dreading today taking him and letting him go but I needed to be his best friend today and to let him go. He was with me in the beginning and throughout many adventures and travels and to a quiet last 2 years in NE Oregon living a quiet and peaceful life. I’m numb right now realizing he is gone, unable to answer how long the numbing will last.He was a kind and fun boy. He was my boy and will forever be my pet I chose to have 12 yrs ago and not a dime made on him. RIP Love’s Dr. Einstein Master Hunter. I will see you on the other side. Until then I will miss you and think of you each and everyday.

Levi’s Story:

Levi was my man. If he had been human, I would have married him. Big chested, great coat and gorgeous. An extreme on birds, brilliant minded and very clever. Unfortunately, he broke his right ankle at age one year. It was rebuilt with a rod in it and after a year of recovery and therapy I ran him in his first Master level test, and he smoked it! The gallery was on their feet cheering. He swung his right leg out a bit when he ran, never showing any discomfort but that didn’t get him off course as he ran in a straight line naturally for the retrieve. A true talent. He and I went to the Master Nationals 2014 and then he retired. Slept in my bed and played outside. He is as well another one of my kids that succumbed to the mold in the home I was in, he died at age 13 and half on Nov 3, 2020. Both Angel and I were never the same after that night. When he died, he sang out his last note like he does in his bday song. So, he sang his last song to me and then was gone. Lord, I miss him. He kept me strong. RIP Levi. I know you and Angel are up in Heaven snuggling and playing together. See you soon my friend.


Natural, 2 days to Force Fetch train, he passes his uncanny straight marking abilities to his get, runs long straight lines til he gets to his prize, easy to train. Young age to have major injury and surgery on his right front wrist, after recovery he achieved his MH. He qualified for the Master Nationals 2014. Retired to competing and enjoying quiety of life.

Ely’s Story:

Ely was one of the best-looking creatures ever seen. Muscles from one end to the other. A true sweetheart. Quiet mild-mannered boy. He was only 5 when I lost him as well to the mold in the attic in the home. I didn’t know for 2 years what was making the dogs and I sick. I didn’t get out of the house soon enough and also lost Ely. RIP Ely. You got cheated. I hope Heaven finds you there still gorgeous and playing with the rest of the Love Labrador Angel Family. I miss you each and every day.
