I met the blond bombshell recently, and I muxt say, what a wonderful, gorgeous dog. I now I took the mick, but I think it’s a case of watch this space. Di, Bondy is a real credit to you.

am four weeks in to my love affair with a Fish-sired puppy, black like his dad. So beautiful1 so biddable! So trainable! Di was such a fantastic support to me in helping me plan and choose my pup. Trouble is,I’m already thinking about number 2! Barney sleeps contentedly while I plan his activities and future training. would love to observe some field training to see if it would suit him when older. It’s a whole new world to me. Over-ambitious mum? MOI?
He is long waited-for and has already brought so much joy.

Lovely website. I liked the piece on ‘natural pack leaders’ and am so pleased to see someone understanding true ‘dominance’. It must be fascinating watching your pack finding their new structure.
Dylan sounded wonderful. 🙂

Wow, what a fantastic website! Stumbled across it while searching for a male Yellow Lab for my parents, who want a show x working Lab with all the health tests. Not easy to find as you probably know!

Anyway good luck with the Labs, I hope to do the same for English Springers as you are doing for Labs……one day!

Di and Al,

I’ve been trying to think of words that might be ‘right’, might be some comfort but I can’t. There just aren’t words that to me seem enough, that feel right. I’m so sorry. x

Today is Oscar’s first birthday and he wishes all his brothers and sisters a lovely time. Can’t believe how quickly the time has gone, and that Oscar feels like he has been a part of the family for so long.

Thank you so much for our lovely dog, he is a credit to your breeding expertise!

One of the best Labrador breeder websites I’ve seen. And whether or not you own, or are about to own a Wylanbriar lab they are extremely helpful. They obviously care very much about the breed. If only there were more breeders like this.
November 15, 2009 – 04:12 PM

Yolanta and Boyz
Just a note to say thank you so very much for letting us come to visit me and my boyz loved your dogs soooooooo much. You are obviously dedicated to and love and care a great deal for each and every one. They are in super health and have lovely temperaments. We could very happily have snuggled Brogan out – Toby and he were definitely separated at birth. See you next spring take good care of yourselves! ;0)

August 21, 2009 – 10:21 PM

So glad to see that you are offering training now on your site. Having watched your style of teaching young labs, I’d be very tempted to make the 6 hour round trip for an hour of your expertise! Becs and Mouse

Just been having a nose round your site, and have had a brilliant laugh at your ducking and diving story. How come I haven’t read about it on Labrador Forums?
Well done on all your successes.

Diane Smy
Hi Di,

Just thought that I would drop you a line to say thank you for all of your help with choosing our breeder.
We are the proud owner of Hugo, who is one of Deeds little boys from Zimba last year.

He is such a pleasure and as you said in your email if we wanted a chuncky monkey I think we picked the best pairing as the vet seems to think that he might be part grizzly bear, as he is HUGE!

Many thanks

Diane Colin and Hugo
