What a great way to start my day!
A few more pictures so that you know she is settling in. She is a sweetheart and just adorable. Duke and Dusty are slowly adjusting. Duke was used to being the baby of the family but we are giving him little treats whenever she goes near him so he thinks she is a good thing!!
Thank you again !!
We love our dogs from Whispering Winds!!!️️️

I love this lol! Right at home!
Oh my Gosh Gail, we are absolutely in LOVE with Rufus!! The trip home was a breeze! Lots of snuggles and doggie kisses! He is so happy and relaxed in his new environment already! We can't thank you enough for gracing our lives with this beautiful little guy! We tuckered him out once we got home and he's sleeping next to me on the couch having little puppy dreams. This is bliss! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
We hope you are enjoying retirement. Thank you so much for all the care you gave Rolo before we picked her up. She is the sweetest dog anyone could ask for. She has certainly grown out of her shell and loves to play with every dog she meets. She is incredibly calm and everyone mentions how she is the most relaxed puppy they have ever met! She brings so much love into our house and we couldn't be happier.
She's become a mini-Instagram star as well! @RoloRugelach
Hello Gail and Wayne,
Just wanted to share a cute photo of our amazing and beautiful Bear. We are so in love with him! He is calm and cuddly and sweet and very smart. He won the behaviors challenge at puppy preschool for doing the most behavior commands in 2 minutes! We feel so fortunate to have this amazing dog. Hoping your next litter is another one of Bessie and Walker pups. They were all so beautiful and I am sure just as amazing as brother Bear.
Hoping to visit in the coming year when my friend Nina chooses her puppy.
Thought you might like an update on this guy - in a word he's awesome. Growing like a weed - kind of a lanky teenager right now. Still follows the cat around waiting for her to play but she just ignores him. He's such a joy - good boy all around. And he seems to love having his picture taken - actually sits there and poses for me. We took him on a road trip to California to do some work on my Mom's home and he now knows where all the rest areas are and what to do in them. Great little traveler - sits right there in the back seat where we made a bed for him in the truck, and watches everything or sleeps. Good in hotels too. Every day he amazes both of us - I've had lots of puppies and dogs and I have to say, he's the best puppy I've ever had. We're so glad we got him!

I just heard the good news...you are retiring! Congratulations! I must say you have certainly bred many fabulous dogs! What is one to do now when one is ready for another Labradoodle? ;-). Nothing will ever compare to your wonderful Whispering Winds Labradoodles. BUT with that said, you certainly deserve to take time for you and retire. I am truly thrilled for you!
Attached you will find a picture of our family along with our sweet Goldilocks. Goldilocks is now two and we love her more and more each day. She is truly the best dog! So loving and so easy! We count our blessings everyday that Goldilocks is a part of our family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for breeding such a fabulous dog! Truly the best!
btw...any retired dogs up for adoption?
Again, congratulations on your retirement. Enjoy your new found free time!
With much love,
So sorry you are retiring. Angus is one of the best dogs we have ever had. He is now six and thriving. We love him. He was supposed to weigh 40 pounds but is only 27 which is perfect.
Hi Gail, I am so sad to see that you guys are retiring 😪, but I'm so happy that we found you guys and as a result have two new additions to our family. Zoey approximately 1yr 10mos Albert approximately 6.5 mos. They are both such wonderful pups. We couldn't be more pleased to have them. Thank you! Happy retirement to you!
Happy Holidays from The Rizvi Family
I just wanted you to know (although you already know this) that Belle is wonderful. This picture was taken right before she managed to take this sweater off, including the leastic around the back legs. The name "Belle" is now taking on a humorous tone, given her nature of getting into mischief, looking as cute as can be while doing it. perhaps a ribbon in her hair will do the trick.
Thank you Gail.
Maddie and Jackson ❤️️❤️️
Sending you a recent picture of Finn with Frankie. He is doing great and growing fast. He and Frankie are big buddies and play all the time.
Hope you are well.
I was saddened to read that you're going to retire from breeding. People always ask us where we got Cosmo, and we can't praise you enough to them.
Cosmo has been a complete joy.
He's intuitive--he sticks close to whoever isn't feeling well or just needs some love.
He's fun and smart- We take him to nosework class, where he has to find things by scent. He's amazing at it. When we want to stimulate him at home, we ask him for a specific toy (he knows them by name) he'll bring it and then has to "hide his eyes" while we hide the toy, and then he has to "search" for it.
He's easy--if we're busy or unable to do things with him, he's content to stay quietly on his own. But he's always ready to do something when we are.
Here's a recent photo of Cosmo. We are so grateful to have him in our lives. We wish you well in your retirement. You've earned it.

Congrats on semi-retiring!
I have a co-worker who fell in love with Ranger and Lewis at a weekend camping trip this past summer.
They would like to find a breeder and reached out to me yesterday... I'm unsure where to suggest they go now that you're semi-retired.
Who should I recommend? Is there someone in Washington or Oregon you would recommend for the Australian Labradoodle (mini/small breed).
I continue to educate folks when they ask about my sweet boys and the breed.
Ranger and Lewis are amazing... Ranger turned 2 years old in December and Lewis turned a year.... where has the time gone?
They get along great! It's fun to watch them play... they have different personalities but are both so sweet and loving.
Lewis likes to cuddle and doesn't want to miss out when his brother is around. Ranger, although misses his brother when he's not by his side, enjoys a bit of quiet time to himself.
You can see Lewis in the background of Rangers picture...he always wants to know what his brother is doing. And, I think Ranger's says... really, another picture?
We can't imagine our lives without both of our boys, so glad we decided to add Lewis to our family.
Hope 2017 is treating you well and you are enjoying (semi) retired life!
Sharon, Denny and...Ranger & Lewis too
Hi Gail, Just thought of you and hope you are enjoying your new retirement. We are so grateful to have Abby. She has added so much life into our home.
Blessings to you and Wayne,
This is the toy you sent home with her, still her favorite !
Just a little size comparison. Tilly is still my little lap nugget at 20# and Marley thinks he is but is equally comfortable at my feet..now weighing in at 39#. Is he the largest of his siblings? I'm quite happy with him but think he may be one of the larger dogs you've bred.
Maisey, Moon, and Abby
Gail, we want to wish you a wonderful holiday season. Tiffany is just a love.
Hi Gail,Wishing you and everyone a Happy holidays! Bella is a year old now and doing great. She's a wonderful addition to our family and brings a lot of fun to everyone.
Attached is a picture of Bella with her Mom.
