“We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan.”( from The Once Again Prince by Irving Townsend)

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.
