I first met Joe DeLoia 34 years ago and got my first dog (Chester) from Joe a year later, Chester's father was Lucky. Jolors Chester was not only an incredible companion and hunter he was a wonderful pet. My second lab from Joe was Jet and his father was JJ and grandfather was Lucky, Jolors Jet was just like Chester and he lived to be 14yrs 4months, I currently have two labs both from Boundry Water Labradors; "Jolors Stanley" father was JJ & "Jolors Neala" who's grandfather was JJ. Al and Margo have done an amazing job carrying on what Joe Deloia dedicated his life to. I have received so many compliments over the years on my dogs temperament, and that they look like the perfect Labrador. I'm so pleased and excited that my daughter will be picking up her first dog "Jolors Dot" in 11 days on December 16, 2017.
I am David Cowan Alex's father.

I had two beautiful black labs last year that I had to put down. I was so heart broken that I felt I could never get a dog again. My four year old daughter kept putting a bug in my ear saying I want ...a puppy! Then one day I saw an add in the paper for Boundary Waters Labs. I swear it was a calling for me from The Lord. I talked to Margo and explained my whole story. When done she said it best, " Michael you will be surprised how much room your heart has for the love of another lab." She was right and it was my best decision ever. I now have a very good looking lab named Koda and very intelligent and mostly great around my daughter. I have since joined Iron Range Retriever Hunting Club where I have access to train and meet wonderful people like Margo and Al Penke!! I love my lab so much that I have decided to buy another one in the upcoming litter Sparkle ex Hunter Runs Boo Boo. When I heard of this breeding I jumped on it immediately and actually have pick of the liter...yeahhh! Not only caring and loving people but passionate about there labs. A first class breeder and I also can say a friend of mine. See More

Our family has been BLESSED with 2 Boundary Water Labs, Emma and Bullet..... or as we say “Penke Pups” because you get something extra special beyond the great Jolor bloodlines with a BW Lab and that the knowledge, friendship, love and grace of Margo & Al Penke.
Our female lab, Emma is 10 years old and from the time we got her as a pup she instinctively had a nose for the bird and love for the hunt and still continues to sniff out that grouse in a heart beat. Emma is a part of our family and we think she is the smartest AND prettiest Lab in the world - and so does Emma :)
Bullet was our son Scott’s lab and as our son says “Bullet was the best gift he has ever had”. The story behind our son getting Bullet from Margo & Al establishes the amazing people and breeders they are.
We got Bullet when he was 2 years old, Margo & Al had already trained Bullet very well, and were competing in field trials and dock jumping competitions. Bullet did not know our son Scott when we got him but Bullet instinctively knew he belonged to Scott, it was beautiful to watch. Bullet and Scott continued with the dock jumping competitions and with Al & Margo’s coaching and encouragement Bullet & Scott took off as a tough team to beat – Bullet could fly! We had to say farewell to Bullet too soon but we are forever grateful to Al & Margo for allowing answered prayers through them and giving us the option to have Bullet – anyone that watched Scott & Bullet together knew they were a match made in heaven ;)
We will eventually be adding another lab pup to our family and for us there is no other option than another “Penke Pup."

I love My BWCA Lab! She has an incredible work ethic, flawless coat & confirmation, a delightful blend of desire to please & ability to think on her own, perfect manners with othe...r 4 legged friends, above average natural instincts in the fi
eld, tractable & works with me not ahead of me and gets my paper ( I have a 350 yard driveway) every morning ! Above all my BWCA girl knows the definition of team work. The only thing that Margo ever disappointed me on was letting me go home with just one.

We were in seek of a good black lab and chuck found the BWL website talked by email with Margo and scared of buying one so far away and never seeing the pup we went ahead and made a go of it and made ...the best decision ever. We have never been more happier of a dog as we are of our mojo. The penkes are such honest fine Christian folks and told us we was getting an awesome animal. Every word they told us about mojo has been true and we love him. We would recommend a dog from them to anyone. See More

You will not find more conscientious breeders than Margo and Al. Their Labs are impeccable. Superb people who love their dogs. It is WELL worth the drive up to beautiful Ely for one of their precious ...pups. We are very fortunate to have met these folks and blessed to have our 3-month-old Yellow Lab, Luna, as part of our family. See More

10 photos by Leon DeLisle, Novato, California with his dog, Titus, that he bought from Boundary Waters Labradors, Ely, MN in August of 2017. (a ‘Mauer ex Sparkle’ pup born on 6/25/2017) Leon gave us all good reports on his new Hunting Dog. I wish I could write out all the wonderful stories he shared with us.

Love my snuggle time with this baby...then we got a ‘Feeling Silly Posing’ picture after outside potty, and thirdly the ‘I’d rather be with Stitch’ look as Alan takes him away from me for another feeding. Watch him grow, grow, grow. Simply LOVE my Lucky!
