Here is one of Dam Hershy's Puppies Testimonial :

April 2012

Hi Ruth and Cephas,

I hope that all is going well at your house. I thought I would send you

some pictures and an update on Michie.

First of all I want to say that she is wonderful. Everyone that sees or

meets Michie falls in love with her. She has the sweetest disposition and so

eager to please us. Her one bad habit is that she thinks she's a doorstop!

She'll lay in front of the kitchen door and it takes a lot of pulling on the door

to get her to move.

A couple months ago I had Michie at the vet for the last vaccine and

her rabies vaccine. The vet attending her, Dr. Moore, was quite impressed

with Michie and how docile she was for a lab pup at that age. She asked me

if I was going to use Michie as one of my breeding females and I said that

she will be. Dr. Moore encouraged me to do other things with Michie as

well and reconunended that I get her started in the Healing Paws program. I

contacted the head of the organization and Michie and I are now in our 5th

week of puppy training. Graduation is in a few weeks and I have no doubt

that Michie will pass with flying colors. From there we will go into

obedience training, a bit more stringent.

Since the Healing Paws won't take Michie fully into the organization

till shes 1 year old we have some time to "fine tune" things with her. In the

meantime we will be in the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Fond du Lac walking

along with the other members of Healing Paws. I am very excited about

having Michie become a therapy dog. It'll be a great way for me to pay it

forward to the community we have been living in the last 22 years. I'm

looking forward to the time when I can take Michie into a nursing home to

cheer up the residents there and to the library to have children experiencing

She's being well taken care of and we love her dearly. Thank you so

much for providing us with a sweetheart of a pup.

Sincerely,

The History on the Labrador Retriever's

The Labrador retriever was once known as the "St. John s Dogs", and is now considered to be one of the most popular dog

breeds in America. The breed stems from Newfoundland, Canada and was trained to jump overboard into cold waters to fish out the nets that the fishermen set out to retrieve fish.

The first "Labs" were brought to England in the early 1800s from ships that were coming from Labrador. In Labrador the dogs were able to develop their skills of retrieving. The Labrador is known to be one of the best family dogs. They are very intelligent and known to be loving and attentive.

The Appearance of the Labrador Retriever's

There are two types of Labrador retrievers, the English Labradors and the American Labradors. English labs come from the English bred type and are different in appearance from the American labs. The English Labradors will have a blocky head and larger muscular body. The American Labs will seem narrower in the face and muzzle. They are not as blocky looking as the English Labs.

The Labrador retriever is a muscular dog, slightly longer than tall, with a short, water-resistant double coat that comes in solid black, yellow, or chocolate. There is also said to be a rare silver or gray color. The Labrador retriever has a think nose, broad head, and a scissors bite. Labs have an intelligent expression, and are known to be quite alert. Their webbed feet aid in swimming and their thick tail is strong.

The Labrador Temperament

The Labrador retriever is a loving, affectionate, lovable, patient dog. It is regarded as very intelligent and willing. They love to play and are very good natured dogs. They are excellent swimmers and enjoy the outdoors. They are very sensitive and therefore are wonderful with children of all ages. They are calm and somewhat protective. They should not been seen as guard dogs but will be great watch dogs when needed. As puppies they should be very well socialized with humans and other animals.

Labrador Retrievers are easy to train because of their high level of intelligence and their willingness to learn. They are very active and need lots of play time outdoors. They are good companions and very sharp. They are known for their retrieving skills but also their hunting and tracking skills as well. Labs that were bred from the English lines seem to be calmer than the Labs from the American Lines. The English type Labs mature quicker than the American type.

Labrador Retrievers Role

The Labrador retriever plays a big role in family life. They are normally considered a part of the family and are treated the same as a child would be. Labs are known to be loving, caring, affectionate, and alert. They will guard when needed but mainly are a companion dog. Because of their temperament, they work well with children, adults, and those in need. Labs are often seen as a guide dogs and for police work.
