We are very happy to announce that our daughter Layla and Jubal, our lovely yearling out of Windancing's Cabe, completed the ten trials of the AKC Good Canine Citizen test and that Jubal will receive her first AKC title accordingly. This AKC program encourages dog owners to teach their pet companions the fundaments of getting along with others in society and being a pleasurable addition to the family. Without fear, aggression, or inappropriate zeal, the dogs must navigate other people with their own animals in social settings and demonstrate good obedience manners, including sitting, staying, and coming on command.
The course required eight weeks of classes and home training, and Layla tackled the project with maturity, compassion, and diligence. She makes us proud :)
As the puppies approach week nine, spring has arrived, and they have investigated every buttercup and chewed every twig to be found in our blossoming lawn. The two remaining puppies of the Vaugo and Clue litter, whelped January 11, we affectionately refer to as Gaucho and Margot-- until newly christened with their permanent names. Both are responsive and intelligent with the sweet temperaments and beautiful countenances of the classic English Labrador. They have been nurtured in our home by our family since the first day of their lives.
For more pictorial details regarding the development of this outstanding litter, please visit the Archives on this page. Serious buyers are welcome to contact us for more information, including a digital brochure of immediate ancestry, sire and dam pictures, health documents, etc. While the puppies are certainly beautiful in their own right, their true quality is better understood through an investigation of their ancestral heritage.
We thank you for visiting Loblolly Labradors where we continue the Windancing line of sound, intelligent, and lovely Labs begun over thirty years ago by my mother, Sandy Shreffler.

As we approach week nine after the January birth of eight beautiful puppies out of Windancing's Zhivago and Small Paws Sweet Kahlua, "Vaugo" and "Clue," respectively, six of the puppies have moved on to their new homes, finding love and security in Tennessee, Michigan, North Carolina, and Virginia. We are grateful for all of the wonderful people that we have met and wish them and their new family dogs the very best.
The two remaining puppies are as delightful as the others, displaying the characteristic hallmarks of a well bred English lab: gentle and intelligent dispositions, heavy bone, thick coats and otter tails, and broad, stocky heads. Both of these pups have been wormed twice and received their first round of vaccinations. For more details regarding these two (we call them Gaucho and Margot right now :), including pedigrees, health documents, and a digital brochure of three generations of ancestry, please contact us at LoblollyLabradors@gmail.com, through the Contact tab on this site, or at 901.338.4321.
If you are interested in seeing the development of this litter between now and whelping, please visit prior posts on this blog, which show slideshows of weekly growth.
Thanks for visiting our site.
Best regards, Eve and Chris Farrell
My family got our first Labrador when I was eight. I wanted a cat. Despite my initial reluctance and deep desire for a feline, our first Labs-- Spike & Princess-- brought great happiness into our household and marked the beginning of my lifelong love for Labradors. Eventually I got my cat, but with 35 years of experience with this breed, I am grateful for the beauty and joy of my family's Labrador heritage, and thus, I dedicate this page to the very first ones of my childhood.
