C'mon Mom......
time for more retrieves!!!!!!!!!!
 
 
 
 
 

Good Dogs.......

Naptime.....

Wait a second......I will wake the dogs up so you can visit with them.  Labs like to be with "their" people...be part of the family.  It is important to me that they are.  As you can see, my dogs are quite comfortable here in our home.

Enough already.....Give us the cookies!!

Our dogs share our home with us and are valued members of the family.  Sometimes they are overcome by Labrador bliss when a visitor arrives.  However, each dog knows that you have to sit to get your cookie!!

I am forever taking pictures of the dogs, so come back often for updates!

Happy St. Paddy's Day From The Nightwind Gang!!

Patriotic Macy

Unfortunately, there are many inherited health problems (such as Hip/Elbow Dysplasia and Progressive Retinal Atrophy among others) associated with Labrador Retrievers. With this in mind, we do annual ACVO (American College of Veterinary Opthamologists) eye exams.

Rita Smilin'

In addition, our dogs' hips and elbows are radiographed at two years of age and submitted to OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) for evaluation. The Labs in our breeding program have passing hip and elbow clearances from OFA and current annual ACVO(American College of Veterinary Opthamologists) eye exams. While there is no guarantee in nature, we do feel that doing eye, hip and elbow clearances is one thing we can do to produce healthy, sound pups.

Macy's first Pheasant!!!  Good Girl!!!

So, whether you are looking for a Nightwind puppy or a pup from another breeder, be sure to accept only this minimal criteria to ensure the best chance of a healthy Labrador companion for your family. We sell our puppies with Limited Registration and Spay/Neuter Agreements.

 
 

We are active members of the following clubs:

The Labrador Retriever Club of Greater Boston
The Labrador Retriever Club of the Pioneer Valley
Colonial Retriever Field Trial Club
Holyoke Kennel Club

As well as:

The Labrador Retriever Club, Inc. (Parent Club)
The Atlantic Labrador Retriever Club (Canada)

Labrador Love

 
This picture shows *why* I love Labs.  There is nothing like the love between a Labrador and "their child".  This is Aaron Hadar and his best buddy "Sparky" who is one of Tori's puppies.

Ribbons!!!!

Here I am with Haley, Sass, Tori & Jarrett (as a pup) on one of our trips to Canada. Sass is the one who doesn't like her picture taken and is looking away. We love to travel and see our friends north of the border!
