We take photos of our dogs in their natural state in their outdoor environment without fancy grooming or “stacking”. Our dogs are regularly groomed to maintain good hygiene and health. They are our pets with the freedom to go in and out of a climate controlled kennel with access to food and water 24/7. We only secure them inside at night for quiet and safety.


Meet Doc, AKC Standard Poodle. DOB 10/14/2015. I stumbled upon Doc while still grieving our one and only Parti Standard Poodle boy remaining in our program. After researching and correspondence with his current owner (also a fellow breeder), we decided Doc would help to fill a hole in our program left by our sudden loss of Stoney. Doc is OFA Good and clear, DNA Clearances and fully vetted. He’s also a proven stud of wonderful puppies. He’s an all around great guy! We are very grateful and blessed to have brought Doc to join our pack. He fit right in immediately!


Tri-Colored Phantom Parti



Below is our Blue Eyed wonder boy, Bash. (appropriately named for “Bash” in the series “Reign”. DOB 9-18-19. Our Bash is a full brother to both Clara and Frankie.


A couple hours after letting the dogs out first thing in the morning, including our beloved Stoney with nothing obviously amiss, Rich noticed something was not right with our beloved boy as he started the smoker to prepare our Thanksgiving Dinner. We dropped everything and rushed him to our emergency veterinarian clinic an hour away. As we suspected, he was bloating. Unfortunately, the x-rays did not look good and a draw on his stomach presented with blood, indicating internal bleeding. Our trusted vet suggested it was best we let him go. With tears and kisses, thanking him for his beautiful children and the love he brought to numerous families in his short life….we said goodbye to our beautiful Stoney. May you RIP beautiful boy. You were loved, and you have left a huge hole in our hearts.

In Memory of "LPDK’s Stoney Hope of Jack” 
 May 13, 2017 - November 28, 2019
Please see the lovely note we received from our veterinarian clinic that cared for Stoney below. It meant more to us than I can say. Vet clinics are faithful about sending condolences. The message including a donation in Stoney’s honor really touched our hearts.

Our Handsome Geno!  Our male AKC Old English Sheepdog. DOB 8/19/2012. We picked Geno for his unique markings.  Geno joined our family as a puppy and has been raised with us.  OFA Hips Good, Elbows, Cardiac, Patellar Clear!



Ahhh.  Our wonderful, silly and handsome Yoggi below. DOB 3/12/2010.  Yoggi was the first AKC Old English Sheepdog to join our family for the start of our Sheepadoodle program.  He came to us as a furry little ornery puppy.  Although raised in our home, he yearned to join the pack.  He is a happy guy, and extremely affectionate. He is still living his years out with us following his retirement and neutering in 2016.   OFA Hips, Elbows, Cardiac, Patellar

Yoggi has been neutered and retired, but will continue to live here keeping the ladies company. He is such a happy boy and we love him!

Jack.  Our infamous, Jack.  He is our boy of many colors.  In Labradoodles, Goldendoodles and Standard Poodles, he has produced for us Parti colors in Apricot & White, Brown & White, Black & White, Sable and Brindle.  Jack is AKC, and is a Silver & White Brindle Parti, DOB 11-24-08.  He’s a bit shy, but he is so gentle and sweet to everyone.  He will retire here with us, as here is where he is happy.  He has been with our family since he was 5 months old. OFA Hips, Elbows, Cardiac, Patellar 

We lost our Jack at 11 1/2 years old after he had become ill. We had a veterinarian friend come and help him over The Rainbow Bridge here at home surrounded by his buddies. I held him until he took his last breath. He will be with us in our hearts forever.) RIP our beloved Jack. You can never be replaced. Thank you for all your beautiful puppies and the happiness you brought to many families.


Bosley. Our very first and only AKC Bernese Mountain Dog. Bosley lives with my brother and his family in South Carolina. It is unlikely we will be breeding with Bosley again. Enjoy your retirement with your son, Bixby (Great Mountainees)!
