Tex is our liver boy who started out as my husband’s dog. However, my husband didn’t realize how much work was involved in training the dogs, so I took over.  Tex is one of the sweetest dogs in our house.  He enjoys his therapy dog work.  He is a maniac about the water and enjoys his birds.  He is an honest worker and tries hard for me.  Tex is 4 months older than our other youngster, Zealot.  Having 2 puppies so close has been an experience that I would not repeat, but I would never give them up.

Sofie was truly a joy to have around! Her tail never stopped wagging and she was always so eager to please. She was the sweetest dog I have ever owned. She was also the mother of our girl Paisley.

Paisley was the pup we kept from Sofie’s litter. She was a beautiful girl who did not like the show ring. She left us at age 7, far too young.

Beau was my heart dog and took on the job of filling a void left by a personal tragedy in our lives. He was my constant companion until he left us without warning and with so much life left to live. It still hurts to think about him. I am eternally grateful to him for his devotion and faithful companionship.

Sire: Bertschires Jesse James
Dam: Petersfield Irish Rose

Waylynn was an honest, capable and biddable working companion, earning Unsteady Singles field JAM’s at the 1993 and 1994 National Specialties and strongly finishing the 1997 Steady Singles; placing numerous times in obedience and agility; and earning her tracking title at her first test. In the show ring, she placed in Open Bitches at the 1993 National Specialty and won the Field Trial Bitch class in 1996 and 1998.

Always owner trained and handled, at the age of 5 she became the first liver bitch in breed history to qualify for the Flat-Coat Hall of Fame.  As a Veteran, she earned 2 legs toward her UKC CDX and 2 legs toward her NAHRA Working Retriever title. Waylynn was an ace Frisbee player, a playmate to all the neighborhood kids, and a gentle, patient Therapy Dog at the nearby nursing home. Her devotion to us was matched only by ours to her.

Dam: Blazin’s Alluvion Solitaire

Dunlins are pretty little shorebirds (like sandpipers) that live in coastal bays and are among the most common confidence decoys used by serious coastal gunners. Dunlins are quick, agile, and fiesty birds; their flat-coat namesake is all that and more! We love her dearly.
