Falling in Love

Selecting a puppy

Because there are breeders like Mary Howley you and I can own an amazing caliber of Labrador Retriever. Our breeder here on the west coast has gotten all his dogs from Mary.

That said you have to experience it for yourself.
Not ready to do that yet, well than here's the next best place to start:

I purchased my Mary Howley Yellow Lab Male in 2002. Boomer is the best dog ever! He lives in our home and loves to Waterfowl hunt. Boomer earned a Junior hunt Test Title from my training. Boomer is very beautiful and intelligent. I really enjoy such a well bred dog. His AKC name is Candlewoods Boomer Reign

I'm so glad you left a message.

I have truly appreciated the care and integrity that Mary Howley has brought to the world of Labradors.

Thanks for sharing a picture of your beautiful boy, Boomer.
