01/2017 5 week old Carly / Tolly litter in our pool house. All are taken and being trained; they'll go to their forever homes soon.
Everyday all summer long, puppy handlers, socializers, trainers and lots of friends came over to work and spend time with each one; everything from examining their paws and ears to swimming with and walking them around the block.
Then on Labor Day 2018, before most went home, we not only celebrated the holiday but also the fact that all pups had finished their immunizations... with a long walk to a local ice cream shop where they were clearly a hit:)
2018: The summer 15 pups were trained at our home and we loved every moment!
Luna had her's first after midnight but only after loosing two white boys because she just stopped pushing. 7 hours later after pulling out those two dead pups, my vet got us right in for a c-section first thing that morning. So thankful as we would have lost the last three but instead just one more white boy didn't male it. Still it was pretty devastating. Ended up with: 5 pups: 2 black boys, 1 black girl, 1 yellow boy and 1 yellow girl. 1 black boy should be available from this litter.
Then two days later...
2/16/22 Harley's pups were born but not without two more "stuck pup" complications which I was able to remedy. The only yellow boy was one of them and though he was small, his paw was up by his face and he was stuck. By the time I could actually reach him, he was pulled out lifeless. I did mouth to mouth/cpr and got him breathing and eating; thought he'd be fine however but the next day he quit eating and even though I fed him formula with a syringe, he died that night. More heartbreak. (someday I'll learn whether to just leave things be and not try to save lifeless pups but most almost always live and go on to be health adult dogs) My vet was standing by for another c section but it was not necessary. She ended up with: 2 black boys, 3 black girls, 3 yellow girls but no yellow boys. I'm really sorry, I know that what many of you wanted. Looks like there could be 1 black girl and 1 black boy available from this litter.
Photos L to R: Stryder, Harley with her first litter of Stryder pups from Jan 2021, 10 month old black daughters from that litter, Luna (the other expectant mama) who just retrieved 90 ducks the weekend before her sonogram. (When Luna's owner got on the waitlist a few years back he told me he wanted a girl he could hunt with. I sort of laughed and said, "good luck with that; my dogs tend to be couch potatoes". I was wrong; he said she does great!
2020 update:HERE'S THE LATEST! Yes I am still breeding awesome Labs, but since all but our very last kid has been launched, my oldest daughter and her darling family now hand-raise the pups at their home after I whelp them at ours. We've had several litters since last fall, but people are now contacting me directly to get their second and in some cases third Langley Lab. So everytime I've set out to borrow a laptop (which I'm doing now) to update this site, any availability has already changed. UGH.
