We Love hearing from our customers and seeing pictures of all our puppies from past litter.
It always brings so much joy to our hearts.
Keep them coming. !!!
Guys, I'm sure you don't remember me but I purchased two pups (Hawk and Kodiak) from your Dixie/Zeus litter back in December of 2010. I just wanted to commend you on the excellent job you do breeding your dogs and raising your pups. My two are the BEST I have ever been around, and I have raised a lot of Labs over my lifetime.
Hi Chris & Linda: We purchased our wonderful Lacey (red collar) from you in 2009. She was from a litter from Ritz & Lightning. We have been so happy with Lacey we really don’t want to look elsewhere!

We got her 2 summers ago. She is having a great time with us.
Hi Chris and Linda,
Tanner was born June 13, 2015 in Dakota’s (and Gunner’s) litter. He has been such a great addition to our family! He is very outgoing, friendly, smart, funny and loves to retrieve. Loves going for walks and truck rides too!
He was a lion for Halloween and Santa for Christmas.
As the saying goes – “He isn’t our whole life, but he makes our lives whole.”
Good morning I just wanted to give you an update on Mia Lynn – she is now 3 ½ years old and doing great!! She’s still as playful and loving as the day we got her. She loves going for runs and playing at the beach – from the time she wakes up till she goes to bed she is running and playing and fetching. She even sleeps with her favorite ball. She has been a great joy to our lives and has brought many wonderful memories and fun – she is so loved and spoiled. We get so many compliments from people about how beautiful she is and how smart she is.
Merry Christmas from Mia in Corpus Christi Texas!!

I just wanted to send a thank you and updated photo of our dog we purchased, it was quite awhile ago Sept 08, I believe it was a Jake and Aspen puppy, anyway he is a great dog, we had one litter with our female before we spayed her and the picture is of all three, Astro, dark choc, the one we purchased, Gunner the yellow is the offspring, and Sophie our female. Astro has been a wonderful replacement for the lab we lost in 07. We are glad that we were able to purchase him, and he is everything I wanted him to be, so thanks for raising such great dogs!
Chris & Linda,
It has been a while since I picked Modi up, but I wanted to send some pics to show him off. Making this purchase has been the best thing I have done in a very long time. He is the most admired, loved, and fawned over dog I have seen in a long time. He is very mellow, loves everyone and every dog, and is truly a great companion. As you can see from the picture above, he loves kids and they love him. At 19 weeks old, he has been house trained for nearly two months, sits, shakes, heels, lays down, sits up, retrieves, and generally listens very well. He is extremely smart and only takes one or two short sessions to pick up on what Im trying to teach him. I am looking forward to his retriever training that I will start in a month or so. I am very, very glad that I chose to go with my gut and get a dog from Molly and Thors litter instead of waiting on a chocolate from another litter.
Lastly, I did want to dicuss studding possibilities with you in regards to Modi. Once he is well into his training, I will make the decision to stud him or not. I am leaning towards it very heavily, especially since I have had more than a few people tell me they would want one of his puppies if I ever do stud him out. I would really like to stud him at your kennel if you have a good bitch when the time comes that he is mature enough for it. Do you ever do this type of thing?
We own Ace, a chocolate lab from Sienna and Rocky.
Your new puppy Bo is absolutely adorable. They grow up fast! I know, Ace is huge; he is around 90 lbs. and still has a way to grow. Hope to see you guys again soon to add a new addition to our family.
In January of 2007, my husband, Jon Rada and I, Lynn Rada bought a
chocolate male lab puppy from you. He was born on November 25, 2006,
Jake was the dad and I cannot remember the mom's name.
We named him Bear and I just love him to death. Bear is 95 pounds and
is just beautiful. He has the sweetest personality and I swear that he
tries to talk to you. Also we cannot keep him out of the swimming
Thought you might enjoy this funny picture of our puppy "beau". He fell asleep waiting for dinner. He is doing great & has a has such a good personality! We are enjoying him so much! Thanks again for everything!

Chris and Linda,
Benson learned to retrieve the morning newspaper at 3 months old and he learned it in just one morning!
Benson is very mild mannered, rarely barks or makes a noise, very quick learner and is best friends with his human siblings Joe and Kristen. He graduated from puppy education at PetsMart.
Thanks for providing us a great dog.

Blue is doing great! This is at Thanksgiving.
Hi Chris and Linda,
Just wanted to give you a quick update on our new pup. We decided to name him Bo DZ. We don't use the DZ that's just in honor of his parents. He's doing great only one accident at night and one during the day so far. He's already sleeping peacefully in his Kennel and gets along great with all our other dogs for the most part. Harley our female Jack Russel loves to play with him but Scooter our male is still trying to figure out how to remain the Alpha with such a big addition. He's really coming out of his shell and seems to love his new home as much as we love him!! Vet visit went great, and everything is good there. He discovered the "doggy toy box's" and has managed to spread them over most our five acres. He has a favorite toy already and it's a Scooby doo stuffed animal, I think it's because he aspires to be Great Dane size some day which the vet says is possible, he weighed in at 27Lbs Thursday.
Here is a photo of Brandi-she has turned out of be a really sweet pup, easily trainable and is still growing.
Last time she was weighed she was almost 75lbs at 8 mo
Just wanted to thank you and your family again for breeding such great looking pups!
I couldn't be more satisfied with Cash; great looking and super smart. He is constantly getting compliments!
Just dropping a line to let ya know Chelsea is doing fine. She will be going back to the vet for another round of vaccinations and check up on the 29th of this month. The vet weighed her in at 18.5 pounds last week. As you can see by the photo, she has volunteered to help load and unload the dishwasher. Because I am a science teacher, one of my summer responsibilities is to maintain our large school garden. Chelsea is a great helper as she tries to plug all the holes in the water hose while I am watering the plants. I will try to get photos of that one for yall. I am also a math teacher so we have been working on a small trick where I ask her what 1 + 1 is. She will bark twice for me on command. This puppy has really brought me back from my depression following the loss of Lexi. Yall have brought pure joy back into my life.

This is Bear's and Charity's son, born July 12, 2008.
He is 11 weeks old in this photo taken on Saturday, October 4, 2008.
Cochise is a very good boy. I hope you like teh phtoos.
Have a great dayand thanks for my wonderful kid!
I bought a chocolate puppy on Thursday and I named her Coco Chanel. I am super happy with her.
Sammy is wonderful! He is loving, easy to please, will already walk on the leash without resisting, and has learned his name, of course, and also "come", "sit", and we are progressing to "stay" and "down". He is a joy. Thanks so much. He and his beagle brother seem to enjoy chewing the foam around the outdoor a/c unit which I have redone. Other than that, they are content playing in the house, napping, and going outside and exploring in the early morning and evening.
I am sending you a couple of pictures.

Hi this is Kerri Hesko.. we adopted Dixie Belle in October 2006 and I thought you might want to see a recent picture of her...
We wanted to send along some recent pictures of our puppies.
Freddy ( the yellow male from Molly and Thor) and Peabo (the chocolate from Shadow and Ranger) are now both big(55 pounds each!), happy and healthy, and have been a wonderful addition to our family.
They've had all their shots, are very well behaved (for the most part!), and are a joy to have.
We will be heading out on vacation the last week in July, and wanted to inquire about boarding services as we would be most comfortable leaving them with you at seven oaks.
Thanks again for everything,
Don and April Goess
Chris and Linda,
I have attached a picture of Ginger (Ranger and Hollie). We really do enjoy her since we lost our beloved Hank.
We love Jake! Thought you'd like to see what he has been doing during his first month with us.
Thank you so much for breeding such awesome dogs!

Just wanted to keep you posted on our new puppy that we ended up naming, "Kisses". She is a bundle of energy & spirit. We forgot how sharp those little puppy teeth can be!! Anyways, Kisses potty trained herself via the doggie door in about a week which was very nice for us because at night now she just goes outside without us having to get up during the night. Julianne loves her so much but doesn't quite understand why she doesn't listen to her when she tells her "no". We keep explaining that it will take time before she learns all the rules. She knows how to sit & walks really well on the leash. Her coat is beautiful & very dark brown. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful puppy. Our older lab (13 years old) ignores her as much as she can but poor Kisses always wants to play. We let her play with the younger dogs in the neighborhood. They can handle all of her energy & enthusiasm better than our senior dog.
Here are a couple of pics of Kisses & also of Godiva our older lab.
Thanks again for such a wonderful puppy. We love her and look forward to many years of happiness with her.

Just another quick Thank You for Our dog Marley, Here is a recent pic of her and her new constant companion Taylor.
Marley is such a smart puppy, she now sits, will stay for 3 min, give you high 5, speak, and crawl, Now working on roll over.
She is spoiled to death, yet at the same time learning dicipline.
Thanks again! Lana
I've attached a picture of our Libby (Liberty Belle), born May 9, 2006, at your kennel (Rowdy Boi and Liberty Gray).
Hi Gray Family,
I just thought I would share a couple of recent photos taken for our Christmas cards of Allys & Jakes, Maggie Belle. She is 30 pounds at 4 months and has the Dudley coloring. She is extremely smart and loves people as all labs do. She has been exposed to gun fire and doesnt flinch, just waits for the casing to drop. And, true to her heritage, loves water!
Enjoy the pictures. I think she looks like Jake! Happy Thanksgiving to your family,
Just wanted to send you some updated pictures of our dog we bought with you. He was born on March 27 and we picked him up on my birthday on April 26, 2009. He is a little over 6 months old. He is big and strong. He loves water and the first two pictures was when he was 4 months old. The last two he is 6 months old. We are so happy with him! He great with kids and loves his toys. We will send more pictures later. Let me know if you get these pictures. This is the first time I have attempted to send pictures.
Fred and Vicki
Chris and Linda,
We just wanted you to know that Nestle is doing great. We love her so much. I am sending you her latest photo. You are welcome to use it if you would like. She is so smart and my kids adore her.
We hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Melinda and Marc Patterson
Hello Gray Family,
Brian and I hope that this email finds you well. J Our puppys 4 month birthday is tomorrow and it occurred to us that we have yet to say thank you and how pleased with are with how she has been. Her temperament from the 1st day we brought her home has been nothing short of amazing. She didnt fuss at all and fit right in with our other lab, Homer. I have attached a picture of our chocolate, Vegas, (parents Candy and Bear) and my brother Leos lab, Lexy whom he also purchased from you. They enjoy playing with each other very much! I cant thank you enough for taking such great care of your dogs and that it really is evident in how our Vegas turned out. So many people have asked where we got her from and we speak of you with great praise. We both enjoyed meeting with you every time and your knowledge of the breed is phenomenal. We cant thank you enough for our puppy Vegas and look forward to one day visiting your facility again.
Take care and happy holidays,
Corina and Brian Hobbs
