Whisperwood Labradors is a small kennel that selectively keeps only
a few Labradors.
On occasion we will have a litter to further our own show and performance
It is important to me to breed an all-around, English style, Labrador
that is just as comfortable being a fireside companion
as well as a partner in the show ring or in the duck blind.
We breed for physical and mental soundness; in order to do this our
dogs must pass multiple health clearances,
which include orthopedic, heart and eye clearances.
Proper temperament is paramount in a Labrador so our Labradors are
well socialized in different environments.
I have been involved with Labradors since the mid 1980ís.
I canít imagine my life without Labradors; they are part of who I
I have been so very fortunate to have had my heart stolen by this
and to have friends and mentors that share the same love.
I would be remiss in not mentioning my good friend and mentor, Diane
Wehrheim, Special Occasion Labradors.
I met Diane in 1991 and have considered her an integral part of
my breeding program,
without her I would not have the Labradors that I have today.
I also give a nod to Phyllis Putney, Putwyn Labradors; Winnie Limbourne,
and Martha Lee Voshell, Broad Reach Labradors;
even though these ladies are no longer here today their words of
wisdom and counsel still resound in my mind.
I am a founding/charter member of the Greater Atlanta Labrador Retriever
a member of the Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac; and a member
of the Middleburg Kennel Club.
