From Our Pets to Your's - 


HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the Dads out there!   And congratulations to all our new "puppy dads" too!


Since so many of our friends and puppy families use Facebook, we created a new Whispering Pines Facebook page!   It is SO easy to upload photos of the puppies and communicate with friends and puppy families!  We not only uploaded photos of our 2013 puppies, but also many previous years puppies and their families too. Check out our page and LIKE us at


After hearing about a friend's recent motorcycle accident, we are grateful more than ever for our wonderful labs and all the good friends we've met through raising and competing our dogs and being a part of the Life's Abundance family.  Thanks for being part of our family,

Life's Abundance Update 2013
Janet and Dr. Jane

Life's Abundance created a new formula just for large breed puppies!  We used the new puppy formula with Jasmine's 2013 litter and they did wonderfully on it.  If you know someone that has a large breed puppy (from Greyhounds to Mastiffs), this food would be perfect for them!  Life's Abundance Premium Health Food For Large Breed Puppies 
contains a precise balance of protein, calories, calcium and phosphorus to encourage healthy,  controlled growth rates
(very important!) and aid in the development of strong teeth and bones.
Remember, the dry dog and cat food come in different sizes - pick the size that is most suitable for your dog or cat.  You can save on shipping costs by purchasing a larger size, less often.  And Auto-Ship saves money too by giving you wholesale prices.  Any questions, please call or email us!


Whispering Pines Update 2013

The big news is that Jasmine had a litter of 9 puppies on 3/28/13 - 6 black and 3 yellow.   As always, we were on hand to help and glad we were, since the only yellow female got stuck for 2 1/2 hours and Bill and good friend Ellen Moon had to physically help the puppy the rest of the way.  After that, they all did very well and were a joy to watch learn, grow and play.  They are now happily being the center of attention in their new homes.    Visit our Whispering Pines website or Facebook page to see photos and watch videos of the puppies; here's a video at 6 weeks old.  

Bill judged 2 AKC Master Hunt Tests in 2013, one for Rappahannock River Retriever Club in Remington, VA in April and the second for Preque Isle Retriever Club of Erie, in Springboro, PA in June.  The Master tests each take 2 days to complete, since the tests are conducted on land and water and include double blinds, triple marks, diversion birds, and much more.   Some of retrieving breeds include Labradors, Goldens, Chessies, Flat-coated and Curly-coated retrievers, Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers, and even Standard Poodles!  It is fascinating to watch the dogs doing what they were bred to do and loving every minute of it.  

Bill retired from his career of 50 years in retail, so has more time now to train our labs for Senior and Master work.  He also enjoys helping newcomers to retrieving learn the ropes and watch their dogs progress.  If you are interested in retriever training, please contact us!
