From Rocky and Remi's litter (6/08)

 

We love Labs, so when ours died last summer, it didn't take us long to decide that we wanted to have another as a pet. I started searching online and came across a web site for Rozey's K9 Farm. At the time they were taking deposits for a litter of puppies born to their sire and dam, Rocky and Remi. We went out to their farm in Allendale to have a look at both the puppies, and the parents. The puppies were clean, and appeared healthy, and the parents were very well kept and well behaved. We were impressed with the fact that their kids were heavily involved with the care of the dogs because we wanted our puppy to be comfortable around children. We put our deposit down, then went back a couple of weeks later to pick out our puppy. That turned out to be a very relaxed, and pleasant, experience. Kerri and the kids brought out a blanket and laid it on the ground, then brought out the puppies and placed them on it. They then left us alone to make our decision. After much debate, we chose the purple collared female, now known as Shilo. I can't say enough good things about her. She's extremely smart and alert. She's not a yippy dog, but barks only when she senses that something's not right. She was easily house-trained. She has a beautiful, shiny, deep chocolate coat. She has a delightful temperament. She loves to play, but also likes to sit still to be petted. She's good with our small dog and with our two son's dogs, which come over often to romp with their pal, Shilo. We all just love her. She's a perfect addition to our family. Her only fault, if you can call it that, is the fact that now, at 6 months old, and a solid 53 pounds, she still envisions herself to be this little puppy, and when you sit on the couch, she likes to hop up onto your lap to cuddle. ;o) I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone considering buying a Lab puppy that they check out the puppies at Rozey's K9 Farm.

We purchased Harlem, our female chocolate lab from Karri in August 2007. She was the runt of the litter and we didn't quite know what to expect. We fell in love with her immediately! From day one, she fit in with our family and with our older Labrador, Josie. Harlem is healthy, strong, obedient and loyal. She has a beautiful, glossy, deep chocolate coat and oddly enough, she doesn't shed as much as our other Labrador. She was easy to house train. Harlem rarely barks. She plays easily with other dogs.
 
She loves kids and is very gentle with babies and toddlers. I attribute her behavior to the socialization she received from Karri's five children. When friends and family visit us, she smothers them with love and brings them toys. She lives up to her breeds reputation. She is a an athletic, powerful swimmer and retriever.
 
Our experience with Karri and her entire family was wonderful from start to finish.. She has a family farm where the dogs are treated like cherished family members. I would recommend Karri's puppies to anyone looking for a quality Labrador who will easily fit in to your home. I will purchase my next Labrador from Karri.

Just wanted to send a note that all is going well with Buddy - he really is a sweetie with a great disposition. We can't get over how calm he is and he just likes to lie by our feet and follow us around. I must say you are doing a great job with their disposition. We have had so many compliments on him.

Hi!

 

Just wanted to update you on Levi Gunnels.  Wow!  He is the best puppy ever!  I can't believe he is almost 4 months old.  Our 5 year old Redbone now accepts him.  It is so fun to watch them run and play.  Levi is so smart!  He can sit and stay now.  He goes directly to his kennel when told.  (I'm sure the treat helps)  He is awesome! 

 

His name is Little Guy Levi Tucker 212.  Funny thing is, I just realized that your poodle is named Tucker.  He has 212 in his name because we had a Wii bowl off to decide who could name the puppy.  Whoever had the highest score on Wii bowling got to name him.  My daughter bowled a 212 and got to choose the name.  It will be ironic one day when he is 80 lbs. and we are calling him Little Guy Levi! 

 

Thanks again for providing us with a wonderful puppy.  He is the perfect addition to our family.

 

... I tell everyone about how sweet this puppy is.  We had a chocolate lab before, and she was wonderful as well.  But this guy....I am in awe.

Hi Karri,

 

Just wanted to share with you that Bella has had a great 1st year.  She is 74lbs of fun and entertainment.  She has made herself right at home, has a neighbor English Lab who comes on over and plays with her daily, and definitely knows the meaning of the words "ride" and "walk".  She is a very social dog who plays well with other dogs.  We need to do some off leash training with her, but she is very quick to pick up commands and seems like she has a lot of hunt dog in her.   She looks great.  Hope the rest of her brothers and sisters are doing well.

 

Best regards,

Hi Kerri! Long time no talk!!

 

Just thought we would send a picture of Michi. This was taken July 29th (2009). As you can see, she rules the roost here!! She is such a great dog!! We are still training her, but she can do all the basics plus a bit more.

Hi Karri,

 

Here are so more recent pics of Michi. She has been a great puppy since day one. She was potty trained immediatley. If she happens to have to go potty in the middle of the night she noses the blinds in the room or licks one of us in the face. She is like our shadow, it does not matter where we are in the house she must be with one of us, mainly me, I can not even go to the bathroom in peace. If for some reason I get in to the bathroom and she doesnt, she sits outside of the door until I come out. She is well trained, she sits, lays, begs, shakes, and gives high fives. Right now she is working on play dead, lol. She will also stay when told. She also will not touch her food when you put it in the bowl until we tell her OK. We can also set a treat on her paw, and she will remain still and not touch it until you tell her OK.

 

I can not thank you enough for giving us such a great addition to our family!!

Kari-

 

Thanks for asking about him.  He is doing very well.  He is a big fella.  He is now 24lbs and doubled his weight in the last month.  The vet thinks he will be 90lbs plus if he continues at this rate.  Is that possible?  I have included some pictures.  He is a very happy and smart dog.

Keep me in mind for your next litter.  I like having two dogs so fully expect to get another in the next 6-12 months once Bentley is a little older.  Although he is not too much trouble, he has been house broken for the past 3 weeks now (not a single accident) and he even wakes me up at night if he needs to go out.  He also knows how to sit, lie down and shake hands.  You made a smart one.  We are starting to explore some agility classes to get him used to the idea.

Speak soon.

This is from Lacy Belle at 5 months old (she was from your 7/06/09 litter).  She is a great dog :).

 

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

 

--- When we got her we had just lost our dog of 14 years.  Little Lacy had some pretty big shoes to fill.  We're happy to say that she is a wonderful little dog and a very quick learner: she potty trained very easily and knows a  number of commands and tricks already.  At 5 months old she is 40 pounds.  She is very affectionate and is a people person, something our other dog was not.  I could go on and on about her :).  She is a great dog and a wonderful addition to our family.

 

Thanks again!

Kari I am hoping this works.  I am sending a picture of Bentley he is from the 7/06/09 litter from Remi and Rocky.  He is a big dog he is about 60 pounds at 24weeks old. The vet thinks that he will be at least 90+ pounds if he continues at this rate.  He has been through a 6 week obdience class and did well he can sit, stay,wait, come (when he wants to).  He is a very lovable, people friendly and good with other dogs.  He is working on his house training he does still have accidents once in a while but that is getting better.  Overall is is a very good dog and we are very pleased to have him.

Hi Karri,

 

I just wanted to drop a note to thank you for your advice and the educational DVD.  With time and patience, we survived Teddy’s puppyhood.   Now, he has become a wonderful addition to our family.  He is so loveable and sweet.  Although he is still a playful puppy (7months old), he has begun to listen really well.    

 

When we first got him from you, he already knew how to sit.  Within a month, we taught him to “come” no matter how far away he traveled.  My second son has since taught him to shake, stay, lay down, leave it and drop it. 

 

Teddy is a favorite of the neighborhood kids because he is so playful and friendly.   We just adore him too.  Thank you for such a great dog!

 

Sincerely,

 

The Dorn Family

Karri,

Just wanted to thank you for Peyton.  She is beautiful and lots of fun.  Also, the vet gave her raving reviews.  I know a guy who, after meeting Peyton, might be interested in the last puppy.    Thanks again for the pup she is a wonderful addition to our family.

 

[updated]

She is 5 months old and loves to swim.  Also, she sits, stays, lays down, shakes and comes to both verbal and hand signals.  She also loves to chase rabbits and birds.  Great dog!

Hi Karri-

 

My name is Heather and I bought a chocolate lab from your farm in August 2008. I see that you are hoping to have another litter of chocolate labs this coming August and I was hoping that I could send you a deposit for another puppy. We love Diesel's (that's our dog's name) temperament and would love to get him a friend. I see that you did not put your full address online and I was wondering if I could get that, so I could send you a check for a deposit. We would love another male. Thank you so much for breeding such wonderful dogs!

Hi Karri,

 

Hope all is going well with you and yours.

Roxie is doing very well, and we love her very much.

She is a very ornery dog, but we are making good progress on the training.

The vet indicated that she was a very beautiful and sound dog, and we have had many, many compliments on her.  I have attached a few pictures for you.

She is large…!  Roxie is 65 lbs already…!  We walk her every day about 2 miles plus working in the backyard on retrieving.

Please find attached per the terms of the Spay Agreement evidence of Roxie’s spay procedure.

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Please confirm the receipt of this email.

Hello~

We are the proud parents of Virginia (Sadie) & Scotch (Bentley). Here are the papers regarding they both where spayed/neutered.

They both are doing great. They have taken to our boat quite nicely. Went swimming for the 1st time last week. They love love love the water. We love our fury bundles and are very happy. I hope you can see by the pictures that we are spoiling them rotten!

 

Thank you so much,

Hi Karri,

 

Today is Bella's 4th birthday, so I thought I'd send along a couple of pictures of our little diva.  She has been a great dog and a great addition to the family.  She has a wonderful personality, is great around kids and has been my shadow for the past few years.  I am trying to get her to swim, however, as she has not been a big fan of the pool.  I've got a yellow lab living on one side of our house and a chocolate lab on the other, both of whom are swimmers, so I'll keep working on it with Bella!

All the best!

Hi

I just wanted to let you know how wonderful Teak is!

He is almost 10 months now and he is a very happy, fast learning pup.

He is just the most handsome boy!

Just wanted to share a picture of him having fun at Moose Head Lake, Me

He is just the most wonderful puppy!!

He is a great swimmer.

Karri,

wanted to drop you a few lines to let you know how Zeus was doing, though I was outvoted on renaming him. He is a great addition to our family, every since we picked him up Zeus has been wonderful. All the neighbor's kids love him. The vet has given him a clean bill.

Hi Karri - I thought you would like to see some pictures from our first two days. Josie (Daiwa) has settled in and we are all adjusting to a new normal! She is such a great dog already. She decided yesterday her water dish is the same as the pool and should be sprayed everywhere. You can see her laying in the water in one of the pictures.  We did a vet trip yesterday for a check up. The vet said she looks great and is going to be a big dog. She was 16 1/2 pounds yesterday. She will be neutered at 16 weeks, so end of August. I will send you the receipt.

 

Thanks so much, Karri. She is well loved already.

Hi Karri - Just thought I'd check in and let you know that Rubi is doing very well! She's been doing her "duties" outside like a pro and she and Indy are getting acquainted and have had some good romps around the house already. :) Rubi seems to be catching on to his signals about when to give him space and when it's ok to play. She slept the first night through until about 5 am and last night until 6:15, so I'm very happy with that!  She's a sweetheart!

 I attached a couple of pictures. In the second one, Indy showed Rubi where the bunnies hide in our backyard - she didn't quite dare to follow him into the bushes today. :)

Thanks,

Cindy

Hello Karri,

 

We have been meaning to contact you for some time to let you know that Malcolm (used to be Kodiak) is doing wonderful.  He is such a great and loving dog.  Now that he is 2 he has calmed down some.  We did not know he would have so much energy.  We are 100% satisfied with our interactions with you and the temperament and loving nature of Malcolm is a great indication of the wonderful breeder your are.  Also, Malcolm is so SMART.  We are the ones that need to step up and meet his needs.  He is such a patient dog.  For a family that did not grow up with pets, Malcolm was easy to train and he has been a blessing to our family. We love him so and he is so darn adorable!

 

Here are a few pictures.

 

We hope all is well with you and your family.

Hello! Just wanted to write and tell you about our boys first couple days at home. 
He did amazing on the ride home Friday. He only whimpered a little here and there the first half hour or so (we had a two hour ride). He didn't have and accidents or get carsick at all (: the first night he only potties in the house once, and he only cried a little for about 10 minutes in his crate before he slept from midnight to 6:30am. Saturday morning, he had one more accident but by the afternoon he was going to the door every time he needed to potty, and whining when he has to poo.  After every potty he sits and waits for his treat. He didn't sleep quite as well last night but Today is Sunday, and no accidents. He still loves his naps and is finding his favorite places. He is eating well, he was 15.1 lbs yesterday. We are so happy with him, he really is a joy and we are so glad to have Jagger in our family. He is an amazing puppy!

Hi there, we purchased max 7 years ago this march from you. Son of Princess and Rocky. I was wondering if you are going to have any Yellow lab puppies in the future? You are seriously the only breeder my husband and I want to get a puppy from. He says he wants to get another lab so Max can train him up the right way. By the way my husband never liked dogs until we got Max.My husband wants another black but I would like yellow but it doesn\'t really matter.  Glad we found you!  Take care and hope to hear from you soon .

Hi Karri,

 

Our puppy is great. We have called her Maple, as in maple syrup. She is crate and house training well. Our other dog, Lucy, loves her and they play all the time. If I get the 3:00 am potty break out of the way, we will be golden.

 

Thank you,

Hi Karri-

 

First of all, we named this puppy Polly after Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Pearl just never sounded right.

 

Secondly, we are so in love with this puppy!  She is such a delight!  After losing our Betty at Thanksgiving there was a dark cloud hovering over this house and Polly has brought the joy back.  So, thank you for all you did up until we picked her up on Saturday.

 

I wanted to let you know that we did see our vet on Tuesday and she is perfect.  She weighed 16.6 pounds.  The vet’s office called the next day to get your name. They said that they had not seen that great of bone structure on a lab puppy in a long time. Maybe they will give your name out-who knows!

 

Thanks so much Karri.

Dolly and Brody's Litter 8-4-15

Karri:  Just a note to let you know the pup I got from you last October, female chocolate lab, bronze, I believe, is doing great.  Her name is Hazel and she is now about 5 ½ months old, about 42 pounds and getting bigger every day.  Had her rabies shot and will be spayed probably in mid February.  A couple of pictures of her are attached. She has a sister now, a Clumber Spaniel named Molly. They are very close and play together constantly.  Molly is about 7 ½ months old. 

 

Thanks

 

Rick

 

Hazel is a great dog.  The vet said she is very solid and I think she is going to be big, despite being the smallest in the litter. As soon  as she is spayed, she will be going to Obedience school. I would not trade either pup for all the money in the world.

 

Thanks,

 

Rick
 

Karri:  A note to tell you Hazel is doing real well.  She is now about 14 months old.  I just took her and Molly, my Clumber Spaniel, for a week to my brother’s cottage on an island in the Thousand Islands in the St. Lawrence River in Canada.  Hazel was  a little scared of the water before, but when she got used to it, she was all business, tracking and fetching balls and bumpers out of the water all day long like it was her great goal in life.  She is a really good swimmer.   She is about 66 pounds.  I just adore her.  She follows me around everywhere.  Some pics attached.

 

Take care,

I just wanted to let you know that I took Gracie for her first vet appointment.

 

The doctor said that she is very healthy.

 

Also I received a lot of compliments on not only how good she looked but how well behaved and her temperament.

 

One of the technician asked for your website. She said that she has been looking and thought Gracie was the best looking puppy she has seen.

 

I believe she will be getting a hold of you.

Good morning Karri - 

 

Just wanted to let you know how in love we are with Ella and how well she is doing.  She's growing like a weed and the bigger she gets, the more we love her.  

 

She seems to be quite smart, as she is picking up her commands and polite behavior quite well.  She just completed 6 weeks of puppy class and we will be starting a regular obedience class when she is old enough.  She knows sit, down, stay, leave it, drop it, fetch, and loves to play hide and seek and find the treat.  She's walking well on a leash but those darn birds and squirrels are hard to ignore!!

 

Here are a couple of pics - as you can see, there is nothing like finding a good place for a nap.  Thanks again for bringing us Ella.

I just had to share these pics with you.  I love my little guy.  I have a pet sitter come in 2 times a day to let my "kids" out and play with them.  She captured these pics today of Riley.   He is always sticking his tongue out and apparently he can "fly" now too -- I just love the grin on his face as he goes jumping up off all 4's!!  Enjoy.
