    Happy New Year to AimPowers Retrievers!

Yoda (SHR AimPowers Hydro’s Little Boo) finally came back into season, and we arranged her […]

Callie

We had been without a dog in the house for quite a while.  We missed the pitter-patter of little paws, so in the spring of 2002 we visited our local Humane Society where we adopted an 8 month old, female Labrador Retriever.   She was a sweet yellow lab, but had been badly abused by her […]
