We miss our best-girl so much. She introduced her mom to all that performance fun. Gracy annually won the Best Pet category at the spring Fun Match. It was a wonderful nearly-10 years we had together.

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.
