Lily is no longer having puppies, but she is the mother of many of the beautiful puppies on our page. She was the one who started it all. She is a calm, gentle spirit who loves to be with her people and her playmates. She enjoys a romp in the creek or a round of fetch while outside, but when indoors she wants to be right by our side resting quietly. She is extremely tolerant and patient with children. In addition to our 3 biological children, she has grown up with 6 foster children throughout her life. She hasn't met one she didn't love and watch over. She can always be found at the side of the youngest member of the family!
Lily embodies the temperament of the "English" Labrador. She comes from a line of champions in conformation, hunting, companion, rally, agility, and jumping. Her pedigree and health certifications are listed below.
We have two of Lily's female pups here with us. Southern Maryland Labs Chesapeake, aka Chessie, was out of her first litter. She was sired by Gateway's Nothin' But Trouble, and is a beautifully built dog who loves to play and to be with everyone. Testing done so far on Lily's offspring have shown healthy, solid hip and elbow structure, and have been found clear of all genetic diseases that have available testing in labradors. Chessie ranked in the top 10% of all Labrador Retrievers tested in the Pennhip screen for hip laxity! We also have a female from Lily's last litter, Southern Maryland Labs Bay Breeze, "Bree". Bree was sired by Annual's Nostalgic at Hilldreams, aka Spencer.
