The puppies have all gone to their new homes! The nest is empty!
Pepper and Coco are officially retired now. They are both 8 years old and have given us wonderful, beautiful, and healthy puppies and now it is time for them to enjoy their golden years (though I know they loved having their little puppies and were good mamas!)
Maggie is 2 years old and in 2021 she will be bred for her first time. I have gone the extra mile with her and got her CHIC certified through OFA...which simply means, she has had all the health clearances that the Labrador Retriever Parent club has set forth in their guidelines.
So, next year, in 2021, LaBelle Labradors will be back down to one litter for the year, Lord willing. Even though I have set the rate for her pups at $800 limited registration, I haven't decided for sure if I will be willing to travel to deliver a puppy to a family outside of the tri-state area. If I do, those puppies will have travel expenses added to their rate. And there you have it! Happy Autumn and holiday festivities!
