Our Retired Dogs


We retired our gorgeous girl Duchess to the fun-filled home of Trish and Brian Hoerz.  Duchess joins her daughter, Jameson, 
and also enjoys the company of the Hoerz children: Olivia, Owen, and Sean who happily share the sofa for lounging in the living room.  I've
gotten a recent report that Duchess has managed to weasel her way onto the family bed... and no doubt is snoring up a storm!  Hats off to
the Hoerz family for extending a gracious hand to give Duchess the royal treatment.

                                                                          Duchess (under the blanket) and Jameson (daughter) snuggle
                                                                          up with the Hoerz children just before Christmas 2015.


Our beautiful ball-chaser, Ginger was retired to the active Benckini family to be a happy companion to Ginger's half-sister, Mollie.  Karen and Todd opened their home and pool; so that Ginger could continue to have access to the activities she most enjoys:  swimming, running, and retrieving.  Ginger and Mollie are the constant companions to Karen, Todd, Gigi, and Joey who are loving caretakers and trailblazers with their furry friends.  We are grateful to the Benckini family for their generous care of Ginger by offering her a loving home and plenty of activity.

Mollie and Ginger are the Benckini door greeters:)


We retired our beautiful Penny to the loving home of Tim Chynoweth and Cindy Schannauer of Denver, PA after the passing of their chocolate 
lab, Grady. 
Tim and Cindy are kind-hearted dog lovers and operate multiple fresh produce markets and procure for some of the major grocery chains where
you may be shopping for your fruits and vegetables.  Penny will be spending her days being lavished with attention by not only Tim and Cindy but the people who help with the produce and customers as well.  Since Penny loves to travel, we look forward to hearing about her adventures riding shot-gun in Tim's truck :)

Our lovely Lady is enjoying her retirement with the Bartoli family in Mechanicsburg, PA.  Lady spends her days with her lab-sister, Cocoa, and is enjoying her daily walks with Beth and Dave.  She is living a care-free life with the four Bartoli children who give her free access to the family sofa and various beds around the house...along with lots of hugs. Lady likes to explore the fish pond and may, with encouragement, attempt a swim in the pool with Cocoa later this summer.  We know that Lady is in great hands wih the wonderful Bartoli family.

We have placed our beloved Moose with the wonderful Paisley family from Aberdeen, Maryland. Moose is currently enjoying his retirement as a mascot for a baseball team, sleeping companion and guardian of the five Paisley children, and loyal buddy to Carla and Glenn. Happily, we get regular updates to Moose's adventures and appreciate all the love, care, and attention that we know he is enjoying as King of Paisleyland!
