Our much awaited champion litter was whelped on October 28, 2011. The sire, O'Ryan, is an International Champion. O'ryan absolutely LOVES puppies and spends many hours "mothering" or nurturing them. He loves to clean the newbies and just hang out with the pups, whether they are his or not. He loves children and is an extremely good, sweet loving boy. He has never met a stranger and often goes to church with us to play with the 3-4 year old children. We are also doing therapy work with O'Ryan and using him with children who are fearful of dogs. Bella, the dam, is the most sweet and loving retriever that anyone has ever met. Everyone wants to take Bella home with them when they come to visit. She plays with our 9 month old baby and is also very protective over him.
