My first love when it came to dogs was Shetland Sheepdogs. But most of my friends had Flat-coated retrievers and the more I hung around with them, threw birds for them and went to 2 FC Nationals with a Sheltie, the more I saw the wisdom and the light of getting my very own FCR back in 2001. Breezy was my first and has shown me the ropes of owning a FCR. Over the years we have become fast best friends and enjoy doing obedience, agility, hanging out, and her favorite–field. She has also made me realize that I can have two first loves.

Finley was the pup we kept from Jetta’s first litter. He was the first (and only) one to find his way out of the whelping box and exercise pen and continued to get into mischief.  Finley finished his Championship at 14 months with 4 majors! A very special boy who was a delight to live with.
