We began the New Year 2021 with retiring our sweet and lovable Miss “Ruby” Slippers.
Through the fly by of years, we have enjoyed watching Ruby mature and follow in her Mom's (Sydney) footprints! We look forward to seeing her legacy grow with her daughters, Ireland and Melina Beanne and son, Humphrey. Ruby is an affectionate, faithful companion to her Forever Mom. We wish both of them much love and happiness AND, look forward to learning about Ruby's therapy work now that she is retired. Love, love, love this girl!

It is with great sadness HML says "Goodbye to the very sweetest, loving girl, Adelaide. She has lived with us for four short years and has been at my side every step of the way...she has always been "my girl"
Adelaide, hands down, has been the greatest Mom of all. Whether caring for her babies or helping other Moms in disciplining and teaching their young puppies, she always stepped in to help when needed. Adelaide has given us a large and stellar legacy to follow in her footsteps, many puppies that have gone on to become amazing therapy dogs.
And now, it is time for Adelaide to begin a new and exciting journey. She has joined her wonderful Forever Family in New York and is loving life. Adelaide, you have taken a piece of my heart with you. Thank you for being you.

Take a few moments and watch Sydney in the below televised news/video links, breaking down the barriers for children in Akron. One of our amazing labradoodles, we trained to serve, having such great understanding of the many needs and love for the children.
She is one amazing, special little redhead that has so very much to offer. At four months of age, she began working as a Therapy Dog in Training giving much unconditional love and comforting many. Upon reaching the age of one year, she received her CGC Title and her Therapy Work was growing by leaps and bounds.
Describing Sydney, she is without a doubt, the most intelligent dog we have met in our lifetime. She has a calming disposition, loving nature and just understands the needs of those whom she meets. Sydney had a litter of beautiful puppies Summer 2017, 4 handsome boys and one adorable little redhead just like Mom… (Miss Ruby Slippers).
After much soul searching and yes, bittersweet, we knew deep in our hearts that Miss Sydney was “born to serve”. Miss Sydney left her role as a breeder and growing her legacy. She is now doing what she was meant to do!
Sydney was awarded to an Intervention Specialist Teacher and does what she does best, therapy work at Julie Billiart School, a private special needs school in Akron, Ohio. Sydney's simple "calming presence" and "understanding" brings much needed encouragement, comfort, trust, confidence and joy to the children.
Sydney is also a "Local TV Star" showcasing her endeavors with the children at school.
We will always love you Miss Sydney…Make us proud of all your beautiful, loving work!
Annie Bananny may be small in stature, but wiggles her way to steal one's heart every time. This sweet little girl has much charm and charisma along with lots of love to give!
Silly Annie has a spring in her gait that brings a smile to your face as she bounds along throughout her day. She will peer through the door watching all humans outdoors and you will hear her inside...jumping as though on a pogo stick, trying to come outdoors and join all. She loves to romp, play and yes, get into mischief with her Australian Labradoodle, step-brother, Roy. At the end of the day, she makes her way into one's lap for cuddles and kisses before off to sleep with her BFF, Joe! Love you Miss Annie!

Melbourne, a Certified Therapy Dog, lives with his companion, a young college student as an Emotional Support Dog providing unconditional love and companionship. Melbourne’s well-mannered nature puts everyone he meets in a relaxing state. He is gentle, caring, obedient, faithful and protective. He has a magnetic effect on those around him, as people just seem to gravitate towards him whenever he enters the room. He is a handsome fellow with a curly apricot fleece coat and white tuxedo markings.
He was an international traveler as a young puppy until two years of age. While living abroad, he loved daily walks on the beach and watching the fishermen. He understands commands in both English and Spanish.
His most favorite things are long walks and therapy work. When he sees his “Therapy Vest”, he sits at the door, ready to brighten up at least one person's day.
