Retired and Missed

Our current Labs are all descendants of these. We are proud to say the lines have been faithful for many generations - now on our 7th generation!! The "Labs Landing Look" remains in our puppies and is unmistakable. People who know the LL look, recognize our dogs. We often hear, "I knew that was a Labs Landing dog". It's always there, and that is what Beth breeds for: Temperament and Looks.

SWEET CRYSTAL ROSE - "Crystal/Crissy" the MATRIARC of Labs Landing

We had one of the saddest days of our lives April '07 when Crystal, age 14 died.

Crys, We will always love you:
Your paw prints are forever imbedded into our hearts!

Crysie will always hold a special place in our hearts.

She loved being a Mother and grandmother to everyone! She would join the new moms in the whelping boxes and lick the babies. She would lay down and let them suckle her though she had no milk. The other moms let her in the box while they would chase all other dogs away. She was a special, special girl.

She is the mother of Cupcakes and grandmother and lived to see the 7th generation born here at Labs Landing. Right to the end, she would snuggle with all the household dogs from Cuppy Cakes to the youngest, (7 wk old) puppy!
Cuppy misses her momma - and was very heartbroken for several days, but seems much better now.
Crystal was a top Hunter, and agility dog. She could find a duck anywhere and gave those shelties a run for their money on the agility courses!

Crystal and Beth taking a break from the family ice hockey game - Crystal is 14 and this was taken only weeks before Crystal left us.

Bye for now Crys, We miss you!

Crystal and Simba -CupCakes parents and the couple that started Labs Landing

Crystal (14 here), the Matriarc with Simba (13 here), the PATRIARC of Labs Landing!

"The Mighty Simba", passed away in 2007. It's heartbreaking for all of us to think about it. He was given a wonderful home in East Aurora with the same family that now keeps Winston and Mouse for us. We are blessed to have friends who love and are as dedicated to the dogs as we are.

2007 was a sad year at Labs Landing. We lost our oldest, dearest dogs! The ones that started it all are now gone. We cry a lot as we remember the joy they brought to us. The love we miss and hope to one-day share with them again. God created the animals to bless; He gave humans stewardship and told us to take care of them. That means love them demonstratively. According to the bible, One day there will be a new heaven and a new earth. Everything will be perfect again the way God initially designed the world (before we ruined it). That’s good news! Surely if the Lord gave animals to bless us the first time, he will give them again. He knows the special bond between our beloved pets and us because HE DESIGNED the relationship. We don’t “hope” the animals will be with us again, we KNOW they will be.

The following dogs passed away in 2007. Crystal, Simba, Cupcakes, Vanna, Nilla, Belle (Cupcakes is the Mascot photo at the top of each page and it is her cupycakes song that plays throughout the web site)

We miss them all terribly as do the families they stayed with in their retirement years.

Crystal and Cupcakes lived with us throughout their lives. Belle lived with her family since puppy hood. Nilla was young when she joined a family only 5 minutes away. We reluctantly released Simba and Vanna in their retirement years. As breeders, we have to keep younger dogs. In order for all to have the attention they deserve, however, we realize the BEST thing to do is to place some into family situations. There they can be either an only dog or one of two or three. That is the reason we place some with other families that live in close proximity to us. We see them regularly and we know their family loves them.

These dogs have great retirement plans!

Our dogs often live with other families, so that they can have individual attention. We would NEVER allow our dogs to live in Kennels or not as a family member. Beth takes great pangs to be sure her babies are well taken care of. Many are kept as pets while still being bred and shown. Upon 'retiring' from show and breeding, they are spayed/neutered and remain with the families who love them. Sometimes Beth has older dogs here she places upon retirement but usually they have already lived with the families and Beth keeps a few retirees here. Wherever they go, it is the best place. Some homes are so wonderful, we want to go with the dog!

Cupcakes Enjoying Agility


- Deceased '07

Cupcakes, a dog we had always wished we could get into her brain and know what she was thinking! She LOVED agility and she loved laps. She is the MASCOT for Labs Landing and her song plays on the sight. Her parents were Crystal and Simba. She seemed to have equal personality of each. There isn't much else to say because there is too much to say. We simply loved her, and still love her. We miss her terribly and will NEVER forget her

We love you Cuppies! And we MISS YOU!!!

Sherman was always happy. He loves his long walks in the fields and woods but his favorite thing of all is retrieving. Sherman could swim all day and night. He also LOVED cold weather. He lay in snow banks, begging not to have to come back in the house. Not right away. When he can't crack the pond ice any longer, he would find the nearest puddle, crack that ice and lie down! Always looking at you with "puppy" eyes. He's had the 'cutest little (well, huge actually) baby face; everybody loved Sherman, affectionately called, "the Tank." Sherman enjoyed his retirement with a nearby, wonderful family.. and Boston Terrier buddy.

We are so thankful to the Marzolf's for making Levi's retirement a wonderful experience.
