Sea Skiffs are a classic style boat that were often used as life boats due to their ability to make headway in high surf. The design was derived from the classic dory form. A very fitting name for one of Dory’s sons from the Boat Boy litter.
Skiff finished his championship easily and is very enthusiastic in the field. His water entries have drenched many a by-stander! His antics keep us laughing…

If love could have saved you,

You would have lived forever.


Our first flatcoat, our first Champion, magnificent beyond our wildest imaginations, driven retriever of tennis balls, swimmer extraordinaire,  lapdog to watch TV, bedtime companion.  He led us to conformation and field retrieving adventures with such joy and enthusiasm. Our special boy.

Loved with a Love beyond all feeling,

Missed with a Grief beyond all tears.

CH Wyndfield’s Conowingo Zephyr CGC

Zephyr was our meant-to-be dog. I had been asked if I was interested in a pup from his litter when the litter was born. We were dealing with Hurricane’s cancer and we said not now. When the puppies would have been about 9 weeks, I start putting out the word we were interested in getting another Flat-Coat. Less than 48 hours later we were arranging to pick up Zephyr in a couple of weeks. He is everything we could have asked for. He is loving, silly, loves to retrieve and learn. He is laid back but still energetic. His enthusiasm for whatever I asked him to do has even got me to go back in the show ring, which I had vowed I would never do.
