Thank you the puppy is adorable! But he is a pistol - into everything!  but he is also house broken already - its been 3 weeks since he had an accident. Not bad for a 13 week old! (we are crate training him).   Linda

David,   Kona and I have arrived safely in Spain and she is doing fantastic.  She is staying in the kennel at Rota Naval Air Station for a few days until I can find house. Then she will be coming home again.    She is an amazing puppy! Already crate trained and housebroken.  I was amazed at how intelligent she is, She retrieves instinctively regardless of how far I can throw a ball or stick.  She has taken to the water amazingly as well, she loves to swim.    We will stay in contact and I will send you some pictures when I get a chance.  We will also be staying in touch because we have decided that we would like to breed her once in a few years and would look to you for a sire recomendation.   Thanks again for the fantastic puppy,   Ryan, Erin and Isaiah.     p.s. Her registered name is ISAIAH'S KONA PRINCESS

Bet by now you're pretty tired of hearing from me; but let me tell you once again how well Koa is doing.  David, he is just awesome!!!!  He fits into our family like he's been here all his life rather than just a month or so.  He goes every where with me.  All I have to do is pick up my car keys and he beats me to the door.  Trip to town or just around the block, he doesn't care.  He's in the car with "Mom" and that's all that matters!!!
Now if he would just get it thru his head he can't drive.........
Would you mind sending me the AKC registration form you filled out on Koa.  It appears that I have lost several important files recently and to say I'm just a little miffed is a gross understatement.
Just want to say thanks again for having the opportunity to have this great dog in my life.  I will send you pictures soon.

Hi David,
I just sent you a deposit for a male puppy via paypal. I would like to have first pick if possible, so please apply deposit to appropriate upcoming litter. I have a female from Gabby and JJ.  She is doing great.  She has turned out to be quite a hunter. I 've attached a few pictures.  Looking forward to seeing you again.

David -- here are some recent pictures of our Stargate Kennel's puppy -- Kahlua (Brizzy/Dozer '04 Litter). He is now 7.5 months, weighing in at 82 LBS. He has natural field instinct and a wonderful temperament. I did not have him out during the hunting season -- but he will be ready for next year. I have worked with him on retrieving and healing.....commands Kahlua simply understands. Although he has chewed a few things, we are fortunate enough that digging has not been a problem. I believe your recommendations on exercise have resulted in no desire to dig in the backyard. He seldom has time to become bored. Thanks again for the wonderful addition to our family. Take care!

Hi David!
Our puppy, Dallas, is wonderful!!! He is the best dog in the world! People who come to our house just love him and are amazed how well trained he is. He is smart and so cute. He of course is mischievious but I love him! He follows me from room to room and just hangs out. He loves chewing socks and my Steve Madden shoes! =) He finally has started barking and is very protective of the house. I like that because Mark, my husband, is gone a lot. He loves his balls! He walks around with two of them in his mouth. He plays frisbee. He has just started being more social at the dog park. He is picky, he only hangs out with other labs. He will be7 months old on May 14 and already weighs 65 pounds. He is very big for his age. We are so happy because he is everything we ever wanted in a dog! I am trying to convince my husband to get one more! =) Thanks for asking about Dallas. We love him!!! I will send some pics of him via US mail...we don't have a scanner.
Take care,
Kristen Morris =)
p.s. Dallas is from Rosie/Kona litter October 14 he was #3

Hey Dave,
Our puppy, "Sophie," is doing great.  Her and our black Lab, Tank, are now best friends (she never leaves his side), and she is like a daughter to Elisabeth and I.  She is a very pretty, smart, and loving dog.  She's very tall and lean, and has a beautiful dark coat.  We think that she looks a lot like her parents, and that she is  one of the best looking chocolate Labs we've seen.  She loves to play and to use her nose to sniff and check things out.  It's funny how she won't stop playing fetch.  The only way to get her to quit sometimes is to take the ball away from her.  She also loves the water.  She's always trying to sneak in the shower with everyone, and we've caught her many times playing in the empty bathtub by herself.  She's a real character, and we're very lucky to have her.  She's now around seven months old and weighs about 55 pounds.  We have a ton of pictures of her.  I'll try and send some soon.  Talk to you later,

Hi David,

It is funny that you wrote, because we were just talking about you the other
day. We don't have any new pictures of Madison, but want to take one and
send it along. She is a beauty and doing really well. She is learning how to
tease us as much as we tease and play with her. Very smart!

We are hoping to take a trip north this summer. If we do, we'll call and
arrange a time to stop by so you can see her. It would be interesting to see
her next to Kona and Rosie. I think she is going to be taller than Rosie,
but probably not as tall as Kona. But she is definitely athletic like her
father. Quite a jumper!

Hope you are well, and thanks for our beauty.
Jo Anne

Hi David,

well, it's been two weeks now and things are going great. I've named him
Zeke (like Greek with a "Z"), and he responds well to that one. He's grown
quite a bit, and seems to really enjoy walks around the neighborhood and at
the beach. He's a great dog!
Here are a couple shots from last weekend.

thanks again for driving him all the way down here.

Sorry I havent written or called I have been sooo busy with Sierra. She
was from Cocoas last litter. She was puppy #19. I was supposed to get #9 but
something happened to her. Anyway Sierra is doing great. She is such a fast
learner. You only have to show her something once and she gets it and
understands right away(exept for not getting in the trash bad girl). Anyway
she is great. Thank you so much for giving me such a great dog. We get
stopped everywhere to say how gorgeous she is. She really is. I will now be
sending some pictures to you. Feel free to put them on your site for others
to see. By the way can you send me the picture of her from when you took
pictures at 7 weeks old. I only took the pictures of puppy #9 And I would
really like to have a pictures of her form then also. Thanks. Just email it
to me and I can print it. Also too, we are sort of thinking about breeding
her although it is much to early to decide. But we will keep you in mind for
the sire. We are not really sure how to go about it all. But we have a freind
who has a coco lab and want s to breed him. But that discussion is far off.
Well I should ge now Talk to you later

Dear David,

As we approach Chip's first birthday (He is one of
Ashley and Gunner's April 26, 2002 litter), I wanted
to drop you a line and let you know how much we all
adore this dog. As you can probably tell from the
picture, he and his brother Brody get along
wonderfully. I have never met as happy a dog as Chip.
He loves everyone and everything. He is also very
beautiful. He has a dark shiny coat and a georgeous
face. I only tell him about 100 times a day how cute
he is! So thank you for breeding such a beautiful and
happy dog. Let Jim and Susie know how much we
appreciate their skills at breeding wonderful dogs.

Hi David,

Thank you for your message last week regarding the paperwork. Puppy is doing
great! His name is Woody and he is absolutely perfect. Growing very fast.
He is very well- behaved. Was potty trained pretty much the day we got him. I
also have him sitting and laying down on command-without even really trying.

Thanks again for everything.
