Our retired dogs

Chromium Ireland Cavanaugh Emerald

     Emerald is as sweet as they come.  Whether it's with people or other dogs, Emerald is always happy to be there and always happy to get a pet.  When it comes to conflict with other dogs, she will do her best to avoid an escalation.  When it comes to conflict with humans, she doesn't even know the meaning!

    She is a great balance of American and English labradors with a leaner and smaller frame, but a calmer temperament.

Helium Lavender Hamilton Gatsby "Helium"

     Helium is a female chocolate labrador.  She is gentle, cautious and patient.  She is a beta dog - sweet, caring, mellow and supportive.  Happy to be a follower and let the other dogs approach and explore first.  Watchful and aware of everthing.  When she is ready - quick and agile.  Helium is not overly exuberant and does not jump.  She is willing to please and even tempered.

     Helium is average Labrador height and is a blend of the American & English builds.  She is more muscular framed than a standard American Labrador and has a wider back, but does not carry the heavy build & thick head of the English Labrador.  Her temperment is in line with an English Labrador.

     Helium is retired and living her life in Washington. June 2023 - Helium has moved to California May 2024


      Cobalt is patient, gentle and docile.  Always observing and alert, but calm and independent.  Cobalt is our omega dog-happy to be a follower and let the other dogs explore and approach first. She is the first to befriend a puppy and shies away from rambunctious games, preferring mellow play and human contact.  She is the least likely to disobey or cause trouble and can be relied upon for her steady grand and calm approach.

      Cobalt is just below average Labrador height and is a blend of the American and English builds.  She has a wider back and more muscular frame than a standard American Lab, but does not have the heavy build and thick head typical of an English Labrador.  Her mellow and relaxed temperament is in line with the English Labrador.

     The epitome of regal-Carbon exudes strength, poise, and an inner calm.  She is intense, strong, and the most devoted and human-centered dog we have.  Carbon is watchful and territorial in the pack, but at times the first to find a stick and create a game.  Among other dogs, she is dominant, protective, and confident. Among humans-she is sitting at your feet, incredibly affectionate, and centered on you.

     Carbon has a thick, muscular body and is of average height for a Labrador.  While she does not have the blocky appearance of an English Labrador, she is stocky and strong.  Carbon's most striking feature is her eyes-a light amber glare that stares at you and communicates her intensity and loyalty in a glance.  Her temperament is much more towards the calm, patient English Labrador and she is ready to obey in order to gain your affection.

     Carbon is retired and living her life in Oregon. May 2022


   Emerson is a female chocolate Labrador-wise beyond her years while still playful and full of joy. She is incredibly loyal and obedient, a beta in the pack that smoothly moves between groups and activities.  Neon is energetic and very good natured-a wonderful blend of the Labrador energy, grace and even temper that makes them such wonderful companions.    

     Emerson is an American style Labrador-average height for a Lab with an athletic and muscular frame.  Her distinctive eyes are immediately noticed when you look at her, as well as the genuine curiosity and intelligence that her eyes communicate when you meet her soulful gaze. Her parents are avid hunters and she has the discipline, focus, and easy to train personality that they exhibit. Emmerson is retired and living her best life with a family in Washington.


     Arlow is our only true English Labrador and is the most docile, relaxed, and patient dog that we have ever had.  Gentle, smart and very easy to train, she is happiest sitting at your side instead of patrolling the property or running with the other dogs.  Iridium is wise beyond her years, and has a calm temperament that stands out among the others. Her mellow and level headed approach to every situation endear her to everyone that meets her.  

     Arlow has the thick, stocky muscular build and wider head typical of an English Labrador.  She is of average Labrador height. Broad and strong, she is not as agile and active as our American Labs. She runs with grace and purpose- but not as swiftly and athletically as her American Labrador pack mates.  Iridium's kindly eyes look at you and communicate her mellow temperament.  Arlow is retired and living in Canada.



Nobel is the epitome of an English Labrador.  She is a chocolate female Labrador who is rivals Iridium as the most mellow dog in our pack.  Her calm, relaxed demeanor never wavers and her soulful eyes give her gentle spirit away. While other dogs her age are playing, I often find her by my side looking up at me- wishing for affection.  When she is ready to play, she is joyful and energetic but she is never overly exuberant and does not jump or bark.  Nobel is willing to please, learns quickly, and is easily biddable.
   Nobel is slightly below average height for a Labrador and of average weight. She possesses the thick, stocky body typical of English Labs.  She has soft amber eyes and the wide and blocky head that makes English Labs so identifiable. There is an understanding in her eyes that portrays her intelligence and even temperament.  Nobel is retired and living with Bill's uncle in southern California.


Silver is the matriarch of our breeding program and our alpha dog.  She is respected among the pack and the first to get the new toy, food, or the best spot to rest in.  Easily trained and clever, with a streak of strong willed intelligence that has endeared her to us.  Silver is always alert outside and keenly aware of actions around the house, but once inside is content to let down her guard on the couch.  Retired and living with Bill's uncle in Orange County California.


Loyal and patient, Lithium has a way of connecting with those she encounters.  She is the first to greet you, will unwaveringly follow you, and meet your gaze even after the others have gone to rest.  She is happiest by your side and always keeps her human in sight. Brave, smart, and affable- she is outgoing and curious in her approach to life. Her nature is submissive and gentle. Lithium is an excellent jogging partner-obedient and relaxed on leash, happy to be in your company. Retired and living with Bill's mom in Orange, California
