See what some of our happy owners have to say about their Morgan's Red Pointing Lab!
G.Woodman-Colorado (Strawberry X Blackforest Casey breeding, Daisy's brother) :
"To say we are delighted with "Kalvin" would be an understatement - He is now 2 1/3 years old---he is hunting/retrieving/pointing well beyond what one might expect for his age- he is doing great!! His temperament and personality is considerably beyond description - he is an absolute delight as a companion and house dog although I must say he is taking a bit more room on the bed than his share....... Last year we shot well over a hundred birds over him . Every one that sees him immediately falls in love and he definitely can win people over with his outstanding temperament. I Realize it may sound like I am overstating his good and great points but that is just the way he is - I have previously had some pretty great Labs but this pup is over the top on all issues...."
T. King- Snohomish, Washington (Strawberry X Blackforest Casey breeding):
..." Rosie is doing great . We made it thru the puppy stage and everyone still loves her. ...I have been following the Knutson book Jim gave me...Rosie is responding well to all the training....Joanne and I would love to get together with your family again and reunite Rosie with Mom and Red Daisy Jane. Jim and I could share Hunting and Fishing stories. Let him know I just picked up 4 Steelhead fishing on the Olympic Peninsula on Tuesday. I don't take Rosie fishing ....If she had thumbs it would be a different story. She can't hold onto the rod...."
T. Slater- Bellingham, Washington (Cowboy x Strawberry breeding, Dixie's sister):
"You probably won't remember me but I got a puppy from you 3 1/2 years ago. She was born in February and is out of Strawberry and Cowboy. There were only two females in the litter, you kept one and we got the other.... You may remember me because I live in Bellingham and was particularly worried about the "birdiness" of the puppies.... In any event, I wanted to touch base and give you an update. First, Ruby is an absolute gem as a family dog. Every night during the first two years, Ruby would lay at the foot of my daughter's bed as she would do her homework. Now that my daughter is a sophomore at Montana State, Ruby will still wander down the hallway to her room most evenings and lay on her bed. As a hunting dog, Ruby has been exceptional ever since her very first season when she was only 8-10 months old. How many puppies just know instinctively when looking for a crippled mallard hen in flooded cattails to start looking from the downwind side. Her marking ability on downed birds is also exceptional. My hunting buddies and me harvest approximately 250-300 ducks off my property each season and Ruby recovers almost all of them. This past September/October I shot 37 grouse with her, mostly blues and spruce. I know that some hunters might think you don't really need a good dog for blues/spruce but let me say that without her I might have gotten 10. Just the past weekend I was on a duck/goose hunt near Soap Lake. We went over a day early and hunted the Gloyd Seeps area the afternoon before the real hunt started the next day. My hunting buddy has a fox red lab he got out of a hunting lab breeder who broke off of Wild Rose Kennel. His dog is a very good dog but after 3 hours of hunting a public area on a Thursday afternoon his dog had put up no birds and was basically following him as we walked out back to the parking area. In contrast, Ruby had put up 3 roosters, the last of which was with 5 minutes of shooting time left 50 yards from the parking lot and she was still doing her zig zag pattern about 20 yards out in front of me. In short, if she is in the field she is hunting the whole time. The other thing I really like is Ruby doesn't wander off and is always aware of where I'm at. In the duck blind her head is always scanning the sky and when her head stops pivoting around we know ducks are in the air. In short (or not so short), I've had a number of good hunting labs over the last 50 years but Ruby is the best I've ever had or ever been around. Please stay in business for at least 6-8 more years because I will definitely come a knocking when Ruby retires. Thank you so much to you and Andrea for all that you do so we can have the absolute pleasure of having a dog like Ruby."
M. Ramerman -Issaquah, Washington (Stawberry X Blackforest Casey breeding):
"Bocephus is doing very well.....I am crazy about him. I take him nearly everywhere I go, including to work some days. Regardless of his ultimate hunting prowness, he is a wonderful companion to me. I do hope to get him in the field next Season."
M. Rosano- California (Strawberry X Blackforest Casey breeding ...Daisy's sister):
" I have Ruby's sister Bella. She has been a wonderful blessing to our family. I am so glad God brought her to me...soon after we got her I got very sick. It ended up to be M.S. Bella would stay by me all the time. She would bark to let me know when someone was at the door or what ever. She is sooooo loving and sweet. She loves to chase after the ball or bumper. She is an all around great family dog. This school year I am sending my son off to college, he is my last one. So I am so glad to have my Bella . That has been our life with Bella for the past almost four years. Thank you for breeding a wonderful dog."
David Mork-Sauk River Labs-Osakis, Minnesota (Strawberry x Blackforest Casey breeding, Daisy's sister):
... " Scarlet is one of the strongest pointing labs I have seen. We purchased Scarlet from Jim and Andrea Morgan in the State of Washington. We don't keep many of the pups we buy but Jim and Andrea provided us with a fine dog. She is a deep red lab who is a born huntress. She held her first point for more than 80 seconds. Scarlet has a special talent for tracking moving birds. Jake and Scarlet are a dream match-up in terms of pure pointing instinct...."
C. Sisk- Seattle, Washington (Daisy x J. Taylor breeding, Lady's sister)
...."Sadie is a really great dog - she's been to family, friend's houses, pet stores and everywhere she goes she gets along well with other dogs, cat, people! People are just amazed at her temperament. We love her - think I've said a few times already? You must have taught her to sit because she does that on command, and also how to retrieve a ball because she does that too and drops it at our feet! (at 10 weeks old.) Thank you again! ps : you can use anything I've said as a reference on your web page if you'd like, I'm a believer! :-)"

K. Anderson-Washington (Rosie X Blackforest Casey breeding):
"Grace is doing well. She continues to be an absolute joy....People actually stop me to tell me how well-behaved and beautiful she is. All I can reply is "I know!!!"
L. Keehn- Canada (Rosie X Blackforest Casey breeding):
...."Copper is doing great and loves the outdoors with great enthusiasm. I know he actually smiles when he knows he's heading out on another adventure....We hope you enjoyed the pictures, we have a thousand of them!!!! "
G. Robinson-Toronto, Canada (Strawberry X Blackforest Casey breeding):
....Casey is doing extremely well and is every bit the wonderful dog that so many of your other owners claim. As you may recall, we live in the middle of Toronto. I run and bike with him everywhere, all off-leash. He is quite remarkable in that "off the road" is a clearly and immediately understood command, he automatically stops and sits at every road crossing and will sit outside of any store I need to go into. A few years ago we went on vacation and forgot his leash; turned out we were just fine without it. He simply won't leave us. I don't know how much of this is a result of his being nursed back to life, and/or Knudson's advice to 'take your dog for a walk', which I did religiously while he was still a pup, but he has certainly turned out extremely well. Like your other references, everybody comments on what a fantastic dog he is."
D. and T. Smith - Portland, Oregon (Dixie x Bartamus breeding)
"I thought you would appreciate an update and picture of Roxy's first hunting trip, since it seems many of your pups go to families that do not hunt. NOT our case and Roxy will get her share of hunting in, even this season. I did a quick afternoon dove hunt yesterday with Roxy and our older (almost 12 yo) lab. Not fast shooting but got a few, and more importantly, Roxy made her first retrieve and got to "see what it is all about". She is 5 months (from Dixie if you recall) and she's showing all the signs to be a good hunting dog. She marks well, uses her nose well, strong swimmer, and is focused (for a young dog) on birds and bumpers. She watches birds and isn't afraid of much at all. I'm looking forward to our continuing training and hunting season! Hope all is well with you two. Good luck with your bird season too!"
