Thanksgiving is over and my tummy is rumbling from being overstuffed. We enjoyed our family & traditions…the food, fellowship and a good walk around the stores in town on a blustery night is always nice. We enjoyed The Pebble Spa’s new location…received a free massage which was greatly appreciated. Enjoyed playing Thomas the Train at Wintergreen’s Toys in The Woods and got a free hat at The Ely Surplus Store. So much to be thankful for especially the love of family and friends.


Higgins 1st Year, Puppy Testimony

Happy Thanksgiving! We are thankful for the wonderful homes our pups are adopted into! BWCA Labs Puppy Testimony:

Hi Al and Margo,
When we adopted our puppy from you in February of 2009 we promised to keep in touch and now on his first birthday, we will make good on our promise.
What a fun 1st year we have had.  Higgins is such a joy.  He has been a wonderful dog from day 1.  He was virtually house trained from the day we got him home.  He is very obedient and easy to train.  He is lovable and gentle.  We make sure he get’s lots of exercise and outdoor time.  In total, he’s pretty spoiled.  Our families love him.  It is obvious that he will be a great hunting dog.  Mike took his vet school board exams yesterday, so hasn’t had a chance to get him out yet this year.  We spent lots of time swimming with him this year, which he LOVES!
Happy Thanksgiving,
Mike, Ashley and Higgins
