Proud of our girl!

June 21, 2019

Athercroft Kama Siouxtra, ‘Twist’, was awarded Winners Bitch from the Bred by Exhibitor class at the 2019 FCRSA National.  To make it sweeter, Twist then went Best of Winners and Best Bredby the next day.  It is so special to have these awarded for our homebred girl! Twist is owned and bred by Ruth Marsh and Dee Turkelson, Donna Slavin and Chris Abbott.

From the AKC Breed Standard:

The Flat-Coated Retriever is a versatile family companion hunting retriever with a happy and active demeanor, intelligent expression, and clean lines. The Flat-Coat has been traditionally described as showing “power without lumber and raciness without weediness.” The distinctive and most important features of the Flat-Coat are the silhouette (both moving and standing), smooth effortless movement, head type, coat and character.
