D & S KOKO'S GONE LOCO, SH May 8, 2008 - March 24, 2020
Koko was a 55 pound chocolate female who we purchased from Blue Ridge Retrievers. She was a ball of fire and loved the game of retrieving! In May of 2010, Koko joined AK9I which is a service disabled, veteran owned business in Southeastern Virginia. Koko spent 3 years with AK9I and was skilled at explosive and narcotics detection. Unfortunately, Koko had a thyroid issue which led her to not be adopted by a service branch however, she did become their demonstration dog and excelled at what she did! We received Koko back from AK9I in September 2013 when she was relieved of her duties. In the last part of her life, Koko was living with our good friends Sara and Steve, where she got to go on daily walks, swims and trained in the field.
D & S HARLEY GIRL, SH March 17, 2004 - January 3, 2017
D & S Harley Girl, SH
Harley was a 75 pound yellow female who was the Queen and Matriarch of D & S Retrievers. Sweetest girl you could imagine. She loved to hunt birds and was an excellent marker. She was very affectionate. She would "talk" to you and give you the business. She loved to go on truck rides and her favorite place to visit was "Camp Bowtop". Harley had 4 litters and produced 44 beautiful puppies to carry on her legacy. Her spirit lives on in all of them.
