|Bill and Diana LaMorris
My love affair with Labradors began in 1975, with a yellow male named Duker
Dog, and I have been passionate about the advancement of the breed ever
since. I became interested in Chocolates in the late 1980's and obtained my
first Chocolate in 1990, then began the work of breeding a Dual Purpose
Labrador that would have a certain look, temperament, and working ability.
Through Generations of careful selection and breeding we have
produced a Labrador Retriever with an easy going temperament, eager to

I met Diana and introduced her to the dogs and it was love at first site for all of
I had not spent much time around dogs until I met Bill. It is amazing to be
involved in the process of breeding. So many stories!

We usually have a pup in the house, and then a retired dog, or 2 or 3! then the

country or have passed away.
All of these options allow us to incorporate the best examples of Labrador
Retrievers possible into our line.
